Malaysia Grill

224 W 104th St

New York, NY 10025

On the upper bounds of the Upper West Side, this humble Southeast Asian restaurant serves comforting Malaysian and Chinese dishes in large portions at small prices. While lunch specials like rice noodles with shrimp and basil chicken are more than worth a trip, we’d recommend settling into Malaysia Grill for dinner, when traditional plates like mee goreng and beef rendang take the spotlight. The heaping portions make each perfect for sharing with a group, much like the customer-favorite kari sayur campur, in which vegetables, tofu, and crystal noodles are served in a clay pot with a spicy coconut broth. Whenever possible, you should 100% substitute any type of grain for coconut rice to get even a bolder and sweeter flavor.
