Hidden away in a bland strip mall, this is the best Asian food in Atlanta. What is even more incredible, it's cheap and they deliver.

The owners are very friendly, and they will remember your name and favorite meals as soon as they've met you more than once.

The Singapore Noodles is the best noodle dish they have. Incredible flavor and tons of ingredients.

I have been eating at here ever since 2007 and I instantly fell in love! I have never had a bad meal there and the service is always impeccable! I miss my daily lunches!! They absolutely make the best Chinese food that I have ever had!

Malaya offers a wide variety of entrees at an affordable price. I have noticed that the owners have not only memorized my name and usual order, by remember most of their returning customers. Their vegetarian options are delicious and plentiful.
The only con is that they are located in a strip mall that is kind of out of the way...but it is nice that it's not always packed.

We almost didn't want to move away from Collier Hills because of how much we enjoyed getting delivery from Malaya. All of the meals are wonderful, and the staff are super friendly and delivery rarely took more than 15-20 minutes (granted, we were right across the street). Great place!

Malaya, has a very warm and friendly environment. The establishment is managed by a real gentleman; friendly in his swagger, has an air of charm, which makes the visit to the restaurant much more enjoyeable. He is defintiely the personality of the place. The food is very flavorful. The restaurant provides for a nice lunch atmosphere, allowing one to have nice conversatioin and a great meal in under an hour.

I have been here several times in the past 6 months. We continue to go because the dumplings are delicious and the main courses are great as well. However, we have had strange experiences with the staff. Our party asked for a wine/beer list and told there was none. We saw other patrons driking beer at their table and expressed our confusion. The waitress acted as if she didn't understand our questions and just kept smiling and shrugging. We asked if we could buy our own wine at the liquor store across the street. Again, the same response. After purchasing wine and bringing it into the restaurant we saw the staff serving other customers beer from behind the bar. When our waitress came to uncork and pour our wine she filled huge styrofoam cups nearly to the brim with our wine. The food was good but the staff is confusing and unhelpful.

This restaurant is the reason I have given up on delivery oriental food in Atlanta. In the past, it has been wonderful, but tonight. . . there is NO excuse for that food ever leaving the kitchen. Clearly, Malaya has very bad quality control problems. Our Mongolian beef was so horribly burned that it was inedible, and a simple visual inspection of it prior to the dish leaving the kitchen would have easily spotted this. The Nam Sod was also disgusting. It had no spice to it, tasted like they used artificial lime juice, and I don't believe they used even a drop of fish sauce. Malaya's Nam Sod is more like a sickeningly sweet candied beef than is the real dish. The curry I ordered was also sub par for this restaurant. The Hot and Sour soup was nearly flavorless. A very bad delivery experience. I cannot recommend against this restaurant heavily enough. If Malaya will serve the Mongolian beef they sent us, I can only imagine what horribly dangerous and spoiled seafood they would be willing to send out.

No quality control what so ever. It's a pity, I used to like this place. Go somewhere else. Save yourself.

Pros: A wonderfully diverse menu, fast delivery and in restaurant service, good prices.

Cons: No quality control and bad food make this a crapshoot at best. Why gamble with your life?

Since I discovered this place I have been going there many times - it has become "comfort food" for my wife and I. The food is great, the portions are generous, and the service is great. After going there only a few times they already know us and ask us how we've been, etc... I highly recommend this place for its value and friendly atmosphere.

Pros: Great value (food, portions, service)

This restaurant serves a good selection of aisan food: Thai, Chinese and Maylasian food. I only tried their Thai and Maylasian food and found them very tasty. The Chinese dishes on the menu are ordinary American Chinese food which I wasn't interested in trying. The Maylasian food is exceptionally good - spicy, full of flavors. The servings are pretty generous, too.

I have been dining at Malaya's since it opened and have always enjoyed excellent service and excellent food. I rate all other restaurants by their standards and very few have come close. They greet me by name, know what I like, the food is always consistant and they are more than willing to tweek a dish for me.

The food here is wonderful, the staff is always friendly. Parking is great and its a nice quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of Buckhead. You can almost always get a table right away. There takeout business is brisk for the neighborhood that has been clued in to how good there food is.

Yes the food is spicy but that is what Malyasian food is like. Deal with it.

This small restaurant serves outstanding Malaysian food, and Chinese dishes with a twist. Try Amy's special noodles, the string beans(without tofu), and the Sambal Udang, wash it all down with an icy Sing Ha. You'll be pleased, I guarantee. Don't let the location fool you.

In Short
Aside from colorful batik tablecloths, the only hints of decor in this storefront restaurant are red paper lanterns and framed prints. The eclectic Asian menu features veggie-centric dishes, like the Achar, a spicy…
