Mini Malaysia Restaurant in Coquitlam

Update 26-Feb-2010: According to Darcy’s comment below, this little family run business shut down about a year ago due to sharp increases in rent.

We were in Coquitlam a few weeks ago for the watershed tour. We had always wanted to check out the Mini Malaysia Restaurant in Coquitlam for a long time ever since the restaurant moved from their original location in New Westminster in 2002.


The restaurant is located in the Eagle Ridge Place on Lansdowne Drive. It is a family owned business.


Arkensen ordered the Hainanese Chicken Rice. The dish costs $6.99.


I ordered the KL Hokkien Char. This is close to what is better known as Shanghai fried noodles but with a Malaysian twist using darker soy sauce. What is missing is the “jee you jar”, fried crispy pork fats! The sambal which came with the dish were home made by the restaurant. Dish costs $8.99.

The wife of the owner, appears to be the one who does the cooking, came out and told us, twice, that she personally made the sambal herself. The sambal was really authentic. We love it.


Suanne ordered the Nasi Lemak, also for $8.99. We are very picky about our nasi lemak and this does not really measure up to our expectation … although, we must say that the presentation was pretty nice. The anchovies were really small and the curry chicken is more like dhal chicken.

    Hi Jenny: We were scouring the Richmond papers and Raymond’s website. Did not see anything of this. Do you know the time, date and location? We love food … especially when it’s free.

    Sadly, this little family run business shut down about a year ago due to sharp increases in rent. We went here regularly and the owner was increadibly friendly. Good luck to you Uncle Weng in you next venture.

      Hi Darcy: I remember Mini Malaysia was one of the earlier restaurants we blogged about. They used to operate from New West before moving to Coquitlam. Sad to hear that they have closed.
