With a name like Laksa King, you know you got to try their laksa. There's several variety of laksas you can choose from including seafood, duck, scallops? however I usually go with the combination one. The soup base is quite creamy and spicy. Apart from their laksas, most of their dishes are the common fairs found in most Malaysian inspired restaurants. The one thing I dislike about this place is that it can get very busy during lunch and dinner time.
This place is a neighbourhood gem. It really raises the profile of the New Market/Ascot Vale area as a westside dining restaurant that's a serious player. As the name suggests, they do laksa (traditional Malaysian hawker styled curried noodle soup) and they do it extremely well. This place is always busy and boasts an impressive menu of other Malaysian cuisines. The roti was not made on site and was just ok, but apart from that the service here is fast and friendly. There is a $7 corkage charge per bottle so it's better value if you come here in a larger group. I also rate the Hainanese chicken rice they have here as well.
Weve been here on a number of occasions and have always thoroughly enjoyed the dishes. However, in the last recent times, I have to admit I havent found the quality of the food as great as it used to be. This place has been well known for a very long time for their Laskas of course. There are always long queues, bit of a wait for the food, however if youre a fan of Laska then its probably worth the wait. The main downfall for me is that they accept cash only. Some of the favorites have been the pan fried pork dumplings; you get 8 on a plate and will cost you $9.80. The king prawns and vegetarian curry laska has been our old time favorites, although we have had other dishes here before. A bowl of laska would set you back anything from $10.90 to $14.50 of course all depends on which one you have!
