I've ordered lunch a few times from here in the past 2 weeks. (Tip: see Beezy Buzzy Office People special on the menu, for a reduced cost lunch) Preparation for 2 meals, on a week day, during lunch hour was just 10 to 15 minutes. Great for calling ahead and picking up if you live nearby. If you are driving... More

shared this great little eatery with my nephew and his fiancée. They too are now great fans. The curry puffs and the chicken in plum sauce were fantastic and of course for us the salt and pepper calamari is still a standout. Busy on a Thursday night but still nothing is too much trouble for the owner/operator. Just love this... More

Came for lunch with work. Food is close to authentic Malaysian food. There were quite a few selections for the lunch specials. The cost was about $11.50. The restaurant is very popular and busy. Service was fast. We were all served our meals at about the same time. There were about 10 of us. Highly recommended

Great range of Malaysian dishes. Dine in or take away from this very good local. It's not fine dining but the food is delicious. Service is prompt and advice on meals is terrific. A perfect place for that Friday night take away.

As a local, lovely owners. Lots of variety but food is not that nice ... Not a good choice for takeaway. I'm sorry ... Food is too oily and doesn't taste that nice

Have been to this restaurant many times for an inexpensive delicious dinner. Our menu does not change much unless we take friends or family. The salt and pepper calamari and the beef rendang are absolutely delicious. Family owned and run. Love this informal eatery.

You could easily pass this one up as it doesn't look anything special from the outside and the prices so cheap that you would think the food might be similar. This couldn't be further from the truth! The food is fantastic authentic Malaysian cuisine with large portions. I can't understand why it wasn't busier than it was... we were the... More

Our family has been going to Emas maybe once or twice a year for something like 15 years, since our kids were little. We'd go more often but its over 30 minutes drive from home. It's not fancy, it's only small, but it's a family-run restaurant and they have always looked after us. Because we don't go there very often,... More

Food was ok, great varieties, service can sometimes be a bit chaotic as short of waiting staff. Cost towards the pricey side considering the simple atmosphere and restaurant ambience.

Staying in apartments nearby, so Emas is close and convenient. It's a small Malaysian restaurant , looks like it is a local favourite. It seemed busy all week even though it's quiet in this area over Xmas. We had take away as the kids were tired, much to choose from but we had the Beef Rendang which was excellent. The... More
