Restoran Malaysia is one of the more popular Malaysian restaurants in the GTA. The malaysian restaurant is found in this small plaza and is rather nice on the interior. Looked to be a nice place for a date or a large group of friends. The menu had so many great looking things (and tough to pronounce as well...) and the prices with the portions were fair as well.
We started with an order of beef and chicken skewers. The beef skewers were cooked a nice medium and the marinade was sweet. I enjoyed the chicken skewers as well, especially with the peanut sauce that accompanied both.
The Roti Telor - stuffed with egg, onion, and chili peppers, was meh. It was decent, but I would have preferred just normal roti with curry or some other dipping sauce.
The Black Peppered Beef Kuay Teow was a noodle dish using flat rice noodle and served with a good amount of veggies and beef. I loved the flavor as it wasn't overly oily and actually had a nice kick of spice. The Pineapple Sweet and Sour Chicken and Shrimp was a good dish. Not as much meat or anything, but the shrimp were of the highest quality and the taste, a bit overly sweet. The Shrimp Curry was done very nicely and there is so much shrimp as well.
My two favorite dishes happened to be the fried ones as well...of course... The Indonesian Fried Rice was HUGE. There was a great amount of meat and eggs in the fried rice and it had all the right spices without any of the oily badness. The Malay Fried Chicken was probably the best dish as it was deep fried chicken that was boneless and not oily at all! The seasoning was great and the plate went very quickly.
Despite the number of people, it was still pretty tough to finish everything. The food was plentiful, priced fairly, and the quality was pretty good. I've heard that it wasn't as good as it used to be, but that must mean it was probably pretty stellar cause it was still pretty good to me.
Pro Tip - No need to order shrimp chips as you will be getting lots of those with many of the other dishes.
