The food was sensational and the service was spot on. The only reason I didn't offer a 6 was the table next to us sat the most rude and disrespectful bunch of young and ignorant morons, talking so loud and on their mobile devices, absolutely no table manners. I realise this is not the fault of Chinta Kechil staff however, maybe they could have asked them to consider other diners and keep it down a bit.

If you're familiar with the Chintia Ria restaurant that used to be in Darling Harbour, then this is the place for you. The service was friendly, the food came out fast and if you remember the place in Darling Harbour, the cuisine is excellent. One of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. My only negative comment would be the size of the place (I've got a family of 6) and the difficulty I had making a booking. Please check it out if you want good food with fast and friendly service, you'll walk away with the same smile I have every time I dine there!

I grew up in Singapore so this is my home away from home. In particular we like the Char Kway Teow, Beef Rendang and the Okra. On this occasion the Roti were a little too over cooked but it won't stop us going back over and over again!

Excellent food and service, very reasonable prices. Obviously a popular restaurant, every table occupied which is a good indication of rating by the local population. BYO which makes it easy to match the food with a wine of your choice.

The service was exceptional as was the food. The prawn dumplings definitely a winner as was the shredded beef. Great flavours and friendly, helpful staff. Even though the restaurant was extremely busy nothing was too much trouble.

Always delicious and super quick! We always enjoy our dinners at this DB gem- thank you:). The roti with beef rendang always hits the spot. Had fountain prawns which were so fresh and tasty!
