Nyonya Malaysian NYC Restaurant

One of the main reasons we love going to New York city is primarily for the all the assortments of Restaurants available throughout this great city along with the diverse ethnic choices out there. The weather for this particular day was fairly hot and me and my wife had been doing a lot of walking in downtown Manhattan working up a nice appetite.  We were passing through Little Italy, then decided to dine at this Restaurant called Nyonya and it is now one of our favorite spots to eat at till this day.

Nothing like a nice iced cold Malaysian iced tea for a hot scorching day outside in New York.

We always order this homemade Roti canai (Indian Pancake).  The curry sauce that comes it really compliments this perfectly especially if you are a fan of curry.

Delicious juicy Nyonya chicken wings which are marinated chicken wings wrapped in screw pine leaves and lightly fried.

These Malaysian style spare ribs were really tasty in a savory sweet kind of way.  If you like spare ribs in general, you wont go wrong here with ordering a plate of this.

Clay pot noodles which are pearl noodles with minced shrimp, pork, squid, bean sprout and egg in a clay pot.  Another flavorful dish with noodles in soupy form.

Finally, we have our fried pearl noodle which is fried noodles in a special sauce with shrimp, squid, chicken, pork, egg, scallions, onions, and bean sprout.


– Customer service is fairly good

– Food is actually quite good

– Price of the food is not going to break your wallet if you are on a budget

– Bathroom is clean for NYC (Actually very clean)


– It can get busy depending on the time so be prepared for some waiting time

– People that do not like South East Asian foods might not like this spot

– Unfortunately this place is cash only so you might want to go to your ATM in advance prior to coming here

In conclusion, we highly recommend dining at Nyonya Restaurant for decent quality food with affordable menu prices to match. The atmosphere is nicely furnished along with decent lighting and this place offers great taste of South East Asian Cuisine which will have you coming back for more.
