I love Laut! I have been going here for years, so often that the waiters know me. My personal favorites are the pad see ew, roti canai, and pineapple fried rice. The drinks are delicious as well. Will always be loyal to Laut.

Having lived in Malaysia, I often crave real Malaysian food, and am often dissatisfied. Not this place, very authentic.

Amazing food, super authentic! Very young and loud atmosphere. Great selection of draft beers! Get the fried chicken pot stickers and spring rolls, amazing! They deliver. The food is great it just gets very loud sometimes. Very casual, very good.

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you

neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
