I would venture to say this is excellent food at a reasonable price. The only challenge are the reduced business hours. You can enjoy dinner from menu with a wide array of choices. Expect to pay between $25-35 for 3-4 dishes. We have been challenged to find a great Asian restaurant for our friends from bigger cities. Malay Satay Hut is always a great choice.

I went to their chinatown location and their food is sub-par. Service is fast but unfriendly. Found a much better restaurant in Indo Cafe (near Northgate Mall) to satisfy my cravings for Malaysian/Indonesian food.

Where else can you get Malaysian food in Seattle? Can't go wrong with anything you order here. Try to show up early...as always, parking's a mess.

I finally get to try Malay Satay Hut in little Saigon in one lazy afternoon. I ordered roti canai and bak kuh deh.
The roti canai did not disappoint but the bak kuh deh was very much lacking in flavor and sustance.

Not every dish is great, but the good ones are absolutely fantastic! Roti canai, dry curried tofu, curry vegetable noodles--- anything involving curry on this menu is almost a guaranteed winner.

This place doesn't have the largest vegetarian menu, but these two dishes are the reason I keep coming back again & again. And oh, the lychee drink compliments this spicy food very very well.
Great for lunches -- they have some good lunch

Malay Satay Hut has a huge menu that can dazzle newcomers. It was like an adventure to browse through every item and choose what I wanted during my first visit. The food is ok, not very delicous but not too bad, definitely not up to an authentic Malay standard, which is to be expected in America. The lunch special is cheap, so are the noodles and rice. Service is also quick.

Malay Satay Hut is one of my most favorite restaurants. They specialize in Malaysian food, so some of the entrees are spicey. One of my favorite things to order is the Indian Bread appetizer (roti) that is served with a bowl of curry chicken. The bread is very light, so when you dip it in the heavy curry sauce, it's just the perfect combination. Price is also very reasonable, but they could get busy on the weekend, so remember to make reservations.

PROS: Delicious food! Reasonably Priced!
CONS: none I could think of.

I am a Malaysian so hear me out. The food is alright, roti canai was good no doubt but that's about it. Want curry or anything spicy? Go eat Indian. Want Asian? Go eat Chinese cause they're pretty much the same (better in some cases).
