J'ai été agréablement surpris. C'est un excellent restaurant où le personnel est très acceuillant. La nourriture est excellente et le service aussi. Je recommande ce restaurant à quiconque. C'est petit, mais très chaleureux comme endroit. Je n'hésiterais pas à y retourner lors de mon prochain passage pour un match des Sénateurs à Ottawa.
The food is fantastic! I really enjoyed it! The hot sauce warnings were also well taken! :o) Have to get used to the lady as she speaks to you like you were her kid! But she's very nice, you just have to be prepared! :o)
My husband, my colleagues and I have been enjoying the wonderful food at this restaurant for about 3 years now. The food is always excellent and the service is friendly and usually educational. The prices are exceptional. The owners of the restaurant always take the time to explain the various dishes and to make suggestions on other dishes that we might try. it always surprise me that they remember not only our faces but also our tastes. I would recomend this restaurant to both those who love the spicey food as well as those who are a little more timid.
According to my Malay friend, the food is pretty authentic. Every time we've gone, the food has been consistently good. I think the caucasian lady the last reviewer spoke about is the wife of the chef/owner. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to Malaysian cuisine and is quite amiable once you get to know her.
We absolutely LOVE your restaurant. We have been back on numerous occasions and have always been impressed with the food & the service! We love it so much that it is listed as one of our favourites on our website: www.ottawa-information-guide.com We also dedicated an entire entry in our blog to your restaurant: http://ottawa-information-guide.blogspot.com/ Happy 20th Anniversary! We will be back soon for sure!
Great food served with friendly service! Authentic Malaysian and Indonesian food which is not always easy to find in Canada. Also very flexible service when asked for special requests not on the menu. Chahaya offers the many flavored foods of Malaysia and Indonesia at reasonable prices. The menus has several appetizers, soups and desserts, as well as dozens of entrees including vegetarian choices. Great flavors and great deals abound on Chahaya Malaysian's menu. It's worth the visit!
