Satay Kingdom’s greatest strangth is their delicious food, including the delectable Roti Chenai and mouthwatering, huge bowls of curry or seafood laksa. That said, their swift service is also a plus, as the staff at this very casual eatery will have your food whisked out promptly, even when they’re busy – which is most of the time – showing the experience of the staff, and the lonstanding-ness the place has. Food portions can also be quite generous (i mentioned the huge bowls of laksa) and of course the prices are very, very cheap. Roti for $6 or a massive noodle, seafood laksa for $8 for example.
Anyway, Kingdom also has its downsides – the pokiness of this tiny restaurant doesn’t make for a very pleasant setting, and the outdoor seating, situated in the horrible, pigeon-ridden Left Bank isn’t exactly conducive to the appetite. As i mentioned earlier – the place is always busy too, which means the seating options aren’t always optimal. The place is popular among students and teenagers, and is rather cramped, so if you’d rather not bumb shoulders with these types, you might want to get your order takeout – a quick, hassle free option that is recommended – especially if you live nearby and have a hankering for their delectable Roti soup. As per the norm with many asian restaurants – the staff aren’t overly polite or friendly, but they sure know who to churn out quality meals by the truckload to a packed cafe.
Anyway, cheap, delicious, no frills dining, Satay KMoreingdom is a popular Wellington institution with good cause, just not the most comfortable eatery to dine in. That being said, many of the other Malay places in town are similarly cramped, or laking in decor.
However best Roti in wgtn and cheapest option around. Their Roti Chenai is awesome!
Pick your times wisely as it can often be very busy. Sometimes the meals are variable probably due to different cooks but I have only been disappointed once or twice with my expectations.
Mee Goring and the Chicken Curry with roti are personal favourites.
