Went there once a few years ago on my first and only trip to NY. I hadnt eaten all day and we were making our way back through china town. The last bus to philly would arrive in an hour or so, so there was time to eat. Slipped into skyway, no one was there but employees. Most of the other shops were closed and there was just a rank odor of rotten seafood in the air and empty vendor tables on the street. Ordeded the fried shrimp. Took a little while, or at least seemed like it, as my friend wasnt the best of conversationalists. And then here it came. It was just a mound of panko-like breadcrumbs, a cone as high as the plate would allow. And out of it? I could see shrimp parts sticking out here and there. It was weird, but kind of fun that i had to dig up my food. I pull the first one out.....the head was still attached. I stare at it for a minute. I already eat the tip of the tails on fried shrimp, i like the texture and its sort of a more concentrated flavor. So i say "what the hell" and bite right into the head. An explosion of bliss just annihilated anything i had ever considered good seafood. They were huge shrimp btw. and a lot of em. i offered one to my friend and she proceeded to rip it apart removing the head. Instinctivly im like "what the hell are you doing?! eat that!" and she just looks at me like "wtf?" as id never been mean or angry with her before this. but wasting that shrimp head was an atrocity. anyways im sad to hear this place has shutdown. or so said another website. easily one of the top 3 things i have ever eaten.

I used to order take out from this place on a weekly basis. The quality of their food is pretty disappointing. The hokkien noodles are clumped together, resulting in a rather sticky and unpleasant texture. On the upside, it's convenient.

Awesome! The rendang is rich and spicy, the soups wonderful. Be prepared to pick out a lot of bones, though, they don't de-bone anything. Worth the trouble for the great flavors. Waitstaff sometimes hear the orders wrong, though, so be sure to point to the menu items when you order!

Skyway was recommended to us as the best Malaysian restaurant in Manhattan. We left it with a suspicion that we'd just eaten at the worst restaurant in Chinatown. The Malaysian staples - Chow Kueh Teow and Beef Rendang - were so bland, heavy and stale-tasting as to be simply unpleasant. The roti canai were passable at best. The spicy squid from the appetizer menu was unpalatably sweet and tasted faintly of some candy bar, and the lobak was gritty and bland. Honestly, not a single pleasant dish from around 6 or 7 we ordered. I've had better Malay food elsewhere. Sadly, I missed the chance to try decent Malaysian on my trip to NYC ending up in this stinker instead.

pretty good malay food for the prices. the roti canai is not as big as other places but for $1.95 it's worth it. hainanese chicken with rice is average. the rice was a little soggy and there were a couple of bones in it from the chicken but other than that it was good. the chicken was not the best but it was better than expected for $3.95. the waitress was really nice and wasnt rude at all. ill definitely go back. (:

This place is great! Lunch special $3.75. That's right, $3.75. Beef rangoon is excellent, as are the mee soups. Service is very good, and they can accommodate extra-spicy tastes. Very highly recommended.
