MELBOURNE | Despite being almost Laksa King 17 years old, Laksa King still has lines every of the week. It’s no easy thing to survive that long in Melbourne’s ever changing, competitive food scene, but there’s a simple reason as to why Laksa King is still thriving – great tasting, well priced, simple food.

The signature dish is of course, laksa, and the version at Laksa King remains one of the best in town. Laksa King do offer assam laksa, but their specialty is curry laksa, with various options on offer. The combination curry laksa with mixed noodles, shrimp, fish cake, chicken, and a piece of deep fried eggplant is our favourite – the serving size is generous and the coconut cream broth is silky and flavoursome. It’s a steal at $10.80 a bowl. Other options, like beef curry, fish head, and seafood also please.

It’s not just the laksa that makes Laksa King worth visiting, with an extensive range of Malaysian Chinese hawker style dishes (127 menu items to be precise) providing much to get excited about. Think Hainanese chicken rice, nasi lemak, and char kway teow. Go for the famous “Grandma pork belly” for generous chunks of stewed pork belly with “Bak Kut Teh” herbs in sweet soy sauce. Another highlight is the lobak – a sort of Malaysian pork sausage roll fried in bean curd skin.

Service in the 140 person capacity restaurant is brisk and efficient, and the atmosphere loud and hectic. Keen waitstaff constantly scan the room to see who’s almost finished their food and table rotation is high – you’re here for a good time not a long time, and we’re perfectly OK with that. Thanks to the fast paced nature of the place, you’re generally not waiting more than half an hour for a table. If you want to avoid the lines, and save some money in the process, visit Laksa King during their happy hour – arrive after 5:00pm and finish before 6:30pm and you’ll get 10% off the bill.
