Ate here whilst in Auckland and as a Malaysian food lover this was good stuff. The Beef Rendang was lovely and tender with all the right flavours. The portion size was huge and the service was very attentive also. We left very happy diners.

I visited The Mustard Seed with my brother, I really enjoyed and felt relax on that time. It has a good environment, playing Yiruma song, typical Malaysian food we loved and standard price.
