This is my third visit now when traveling through and it's been great every time! Love the Beef Rendang, just the right amount of heat and great flavour. Super friendly service. Thank you, it was a real treat.

Nice halal place in the middle of middle earth. Only about a 45 minute drive from Ohakune. We loved the Laksa!

I will take a day trip to eat here again. Apart from the friendly staff, the meal was the best I had on my trip up from Dunedin to Cambridge. It was an experience from the first bite to the last. Highly recommended and you will not be sorry riding that extra 10 to 20 km's to have a great meal. The place itself is nothing to look at but do not be fooled by what it looks like on the inside. You go there to have a great mean, not to admire the view. Wow, wow, wow

We were on our way to Taupo and decided to stop by for a dinner at Straits Kitchen. It was a great decision.
The first moment we stepped inside, we could feel the warmth and cosiness of the place with Malaysian traditional music could be heard playing at the background.
We ordered Ultimate Nasi Lemak Challenge, Beef Kicap, Mee Goreng Sotong Penang and the new Nasi Goreng Temasek. The foods were all scrumptious and they took us to reminisce about the foods we used to have back in our coutry, Malaysia.
The best restaurant for those who wants to get a taste of how Malaysian foods are.
