  • To Temasek Restaurant

Flavoursome cuisine, drawn from the culinary delights of Singapore and Malaysia

Temasek Restaurant specialises in serving no-fuss, flavoursome cuisine, drawn from the culinary delights of Singapore and Malaysia.

Located in Parramatta, this eatery is a favourite for its laksa. If you are a fan of this spicy noodle soup, you will want to come back again. However, there are a wide range of options on the menu if this is not what your tastebuds crave. A vegetarian option is available as well.

With a seating capacity of one hundred and fifty, this restaurant is suitable for group bookings.

--TrueLocal description--
Parramatta locals have been flocking to this bustling family-run Singaporean and Malaysian restaurant for years and word is spreading through the rest of  Sydney. People now travel from all around for the authentic spicy dishes, including their popular laksa, noodles and famous chilli crab (which you need to order a few days in advance). For dessert have the tapioca pudding with palm sugar and coconut, it?s to die for. Be sure to book if  you?re going on a Friday or Saturday  night.

    Did someone say MSG? If I didn't notice it before, I most certainly noticed it last time I was there. Thirsty throughout my meal, and thirsty for hours later, Temasek will not have me going back for seconds. The quality of the food has gone down hill and really, why would you dine here when there we are now spoilt for choice when it comes to authentic Malaysian fare? Do yourself a favour and avoid Temasek.

    I like Asian food with not that strong taste where it is in parramarra also close to my home. This is best restaurant in parramatta. I wanted to give 5 full stars but i had once bad experiance with one of staff was bit rude, i am giving 4.5 stars. Reasonable price in terms of quality of service.

    Found the food average. Not bad mind you. It was pleasant but probably over priced for what it is. We went during lunch and got seated in the room across from the main restaurant, it was a room that was pretty empty and bare, not great in terms of ambience, but at least we got a table.

    Ordered food from Temasek, for my husband's birthday, very good quality, all the guests enjoyed! Been eating here for 20 years now! Thanks for the true Malaysian flavour
  • Bella.Blue Local Star   382 reviews
    One of my fave Malaysian spots to eat at in the west. The kitchen is loud, the dining area louder. Don't go here for the ambience as it is bright lights and raucous laughter, clattering of plates and often many left behind in the hurriedness of things. If this puts you off - don't bother going. But do go for the good Laksa, Nasi Goreng and other authentic meals. Value for money, Temasek is a family fave that always gets my vote.

    Comparing with other authentic asian restaurants, very disappointed with the place and food quality, with the price they charge. I felt like eating in an ordinary street alley. Fried chicken was very dry, and food presentation was very poor. I don't get the feeling that food are cooked fresh, considering the long waiting time.

    Temasek does a pretty awesome nasi goreng (fried rice), probably the best I've had in Sydney. We also ordered the sambal fish, gado-gado and beef rendang, all of which were decent but not amazing. If you have had Singaporean/Malaysian mothers or "aunties" cook the same dishes for you, it just does not compare.

    Food taste has already been adjusted, not much authentic but is okay. The service was fast and people are nice. Good job.

    I didn't know I loved Malaysian food until I ate here, perhaps I don't and they are just so good at what they do. Either way I will be returning to this place again until I have tried the majority of the menu!

    This Malaysian restaurant serves authentic, delicious food that is reasonably priced. They serve the best fried rice I've had in Sydney! The best dishes to order are the sambal prawns and chilli beef as you can't get more flavour than that! I highly recommend making a reservation as it is quite busy on weekends and weeknights. The atmosphere is busy and noisy, but if you are looking for authentic cuisine that doesn't need to impress anyone except for their taste buds, then this is the place to go!

    This is my FAVOURITE place to eat Laksa! The food is so authentic not like other Malaysian restaurants out there.

    I've been here a couple of times and each time, I have been impressed. Temasek provides diners with authentic Malaysian food and they definitely do not "water down" the spicy flavours to accomodate locals. It's very popular so always make sure you call and make a booking. Service, while not stellar, is passable. You get the food quick and wait staff are friendly.

    This restaurant has the silkiest chicken I have ever had . It is smooth , soft and extremely delicious ! I love this place ! Highly recommend it! 1 star missing is because of the service..

    Though a little bit tricky to find in the Roxy Arcade, Temasek is well worth the effort. This friendly restaurant serves authentic Singaporean and Malaysian dishes, and the spices and aromas are to die for. It's always packed out with a cosmopolitan clientele, which is always a good sign! I recommend the Hainanese Chicken and the Assam Fish Curry.

    Fantastic hawker style food. Every dish we have tried here has been excellent. The Beef Rendang, Chicken Rice, Kangkong and satay just fabulous! Ring ahead to order Singapore Chilli Crab - its amazing for special occasions. This place has two meal sittings so be sure to ring and reserve your table so you wont be dissapointed. Cheers!

    Try the restaurant's specialty which is Beef Rendang for a blast to your taste buds. Highly recommended for those who love spicy food.
