The food was fantastic, but then the service wasn't as good as expected. The waiter that served my table last night has a really poor attitude when i asked him what was in the indian pancake.

I've eaten at Nyonya many times and have even gotten delivery from there. The food is always fresh and authentic. Although the authenticity often results in dishes that don't suit the american palate. The double cooked pork with yams wasn't a big hit with a co-worker. The Roti Tellur is awesome. The portions are big and great value for the money.

nyonya's is my favorite asian restaurant in all of new york. i know, bold statement. but it's true. i crave the golden fried squid all the time. it's the best i've ever had. the garlic chicken seems so simple on the menu, but it's so freaking good. and the sizzling tofu platter is fantastic. and if carbs weren't evil, i would eat their coconut rice every second of the day. i'm so weak.

Most of the dishes are pretty good here. My faves are the assam laksa (fishy sour soup noodle), kangkung belachan (asian vegetable with spicy sauce), fatty pork in dark sauce with yam, steamed chilean sea bass, jumbo prawns with coconut, ok and basically 100 other things. The prices are pretty decent. The service is lacking and slow half the time but I'll put up with it for food that tastes that good. The thing is these waiters aren't full of attitude unlike most of the actor bots who work in the nicer restaurants but they simply aren't told to cater to our every need. I suppose intent is important to me. hope this helps.

I have been to this place approximately ten times give or take. I love it a lot. The service is good, the food is terrific, and the decor lends a mellow vibe while you're eating. I have heard, however, that this place doesn't really serve authentic Malay food. I don't know about that, but I would recommend a visit to Nyonya for anyone looking for a taste of Malay. Just bring 10 to 20 bucks and you're all set!

This used to a frequent spot of mine. The food is still pretty good, but the service has gone down. My favorite there is the Prawn Mee (Spicy prawn noodles). I can eat at least 2 of them everyday. The stuff they make in the front window, the Indian pancakes are their signature dish. (Don't remember the name of the dish) Many people order that. The place is kind of noisy, and get crowded at times. Nonetheless, a solid place to eat in Chinatown. But believe me, you'll get sick of it quickly if you go there all the time.
