New Flavours

For lunch and dinner, the café offers fragrant curries, punchy rice dishes, and delicious noodles. You’ll find Nanyang’s signature laksa, Roti Canai (soft flaky roti served with satay or a hearty curry), and Ipoh Hor Fun. We’re bringing our beloved national dishes, Nasi Kerabu (made with our traditional Blue Coconut Rice) and Hainanese Chicken with Rice Balls. Wash it down with a curated selection of teas from Nanyang Tea Club, a thirst-quenching Singapore Tiger beer, or a local crafty from Young Henrys. Then have a pick-me-up Malaya Kopi (coffee).

Beautiful Interiors

At Nanyang Malaya Café our interiors will transport you to a British Malaya’s Kopitiam-inspired café, a real find on the streets of Singapore. Be greeted with décor that reminisces a relaxed laid-back time featuring a rickshaw, rosewood furniture, flea market chairs, and old doors as tabletops, marble tables, and a wall mural from a local artist-illustrator Lew Keilar.
