I live nearby and always enjoy Nyonya. Great place for a group but also get delivery a lot. Huge menu from adventurous items to the standards. The Assam Laksa is delicious. Just ordered deliver, I'm told Min. Deliver is $10 not $6.

If you are looking for authentic malaysian/singaporean food, I think what they put on the plate there is close enough. They even have Yusheng during the CNY period, so it's good. Price is decent if you are ordering dishes to share. It would be much cheaper if you were to order your own (ie noodles dishes, fried rice, etc). Only downside is they don't take credit card - cash only. But overall, I'm more than satisfied. Definitely returning to eat.

Nyonya is as close to great Malaysian food in Manhattan as you are going to get. Its a no-frills restaurant that just serves classic Malaysian dishes. I get cravings for the har mee (prawn mee) every few weeks and each time, it does not disappoint. The poh piah is also a fantastic starter, as is the roti chanai, roti teleur.. I could go on. The food is consistently good at Nyonya and its sister restaurant, Penang, in the UWS (which is where we walk to when we're pressed for time to travel to Chinatown) but you can't beat the original Nyonya is value for money and is excellent quality.

This is the best place ever for malay food. You can go expensive or cheap here. I used to have a chicken with rice dish AND a noodle soup (prawn mee) for lunch almost everyday, and i cost about 12 dollars and was enough food for two. There food is just so good and i must of gone to this place AT LEAST 20 times in last few years. I wish i worked by you again Nonya!

I went to nonya one time to order beef rendang and chicken rice. The food was okay , however the beef rendang was a bit stiff , not as tender and smooth as other places like jaya resturant. The ordering process was horried and the place was very loud and noisy. Its true resturants in chinatown can be loud and noisy, however this resturant doesn't seem to atleast keep some order and maintenance as others. The bathrooms are small, cramped, dirty, smeeling of urine sometimes, and not really maintened. Atleast some resturants in chinatown while not very famous and prestigious , atleast try to make the place a bit clean , and organized in the common areas and the bathrooms. Nonya is a bit fast and hurried, which is a bit understandable but the value of this place is not that great. I have tried other malaysian resturants where the prices are lower and the food quality is better , meat is more tendy, saucy, and not as stiff . Even the rice as nonya was a bit bland and not prepared as other chicken rice. Nonya I presume may have been a bit better , but its value has declined . People I know, who used to go there , don't go there anymore.

I heard that this place was good, so I decided to try. I ordered a chicken with rice and there were only 4 small pieces of chicken. Very stingy place..... Will not go back!

Read about this place and went to try it...lived up to the expectations...nice options for non vegetarians...but i decided to stick to the basics...roti telur was awsome...nasi lemak is not great but good...will try this place again if i get a chance
