I recently went to nyonya restaurant in chinatown and to my surprise, they had moved across the street. The decor of the restaurant was different than the old one but nevertheless the food and atmosphere were wonderful. The service as usual was great... but my biggest surprise was that they kept all of the dishes from the old resaurant, which I love, as well as addinga bunch of new dishes.I tried some of the new dishes like the fried crab, maylasian wings and to my delight everything was delicious. I did notice only thing though even though the quality of the food was better than i ever had, the price ramained very reasonable... I highly recommend that people visit the new nyonya on grand street

It is always consistently good fare. I always order the roti, and their famous hainan chicken. Another great dish is the stingray over banana leaf; the portion is enormous and absolutely delicious. I personally don't care for their new upscale decor, preferring to their theme decor and part of the kitchen in the front. Also, it's about time they take credit cards.

I have been meaning to write this review for a LONG time. I went to Nonya with my family and we ordered various dishes, which were OK nothing special. Since this was over a year ago, the one thing that I do remember is that we orderd the jumbo coconut shrimp. They came with the head, tail and feet, which was ridiculeous! Its not that we were squeamish ist that you have to take the batter out to eat the shrimp thus defeating the purpose of coconut shrimp. The server and the manager were both pretty rude about it and offered us a 'finger bowl' because they thought we didnt want to get our hands dirty. I tried explaining them that was not the issue and their response was 'thats how we do it in malaysia' ... my wife and mother in law were with me and have lived in malaysia for over 20 years and told the waitress never have they ever seen anything like this and we demaded they do something to correct the situation. They flat out refused, and still billed us for it. We made it up to them by leaving them a 0 dollar tip on a 120 dollar bill.

I was stunned for a second that nyonya is closed down but its not! Phew… luckily there was this young lady handing out flyers informed me that the restaurant changed its location to across the street. I swear, i thought for a moment, my favorite restaurant for south east asian food is gone forever.

Roti was good. Food, which we ordered the thai veggie dinner, was ok. It was greasier than expected for a veggie dish. What made the experience so poor was that the waitress demanded a tip from us as we were leaving the restaurant. The host stopped us asking if our food was ok, which said it was all right. Then the waitress, who wasn't even our waitress, said, oh well, you know that the bill doesn't include a tip. You should leave one. We were very offended and felt that no one has a right to a tip. They didn't check on us during dinner to see if the food was ok and they didn't refill our tea. They forgot to bring out our rice until we asked them. A tip is a privilege for a job well done, not a right b/c it's part of a job to serve someone their food. Don't go there unless you plan on tipping for poor service and mediocre food.
