Harden's survey result
“The ambience might not be much (it is set inside a no-frills indoor market) but – oh boy! – the beef rending and mee goreng are deeeelicious” at this tiny, high-quality and exceptionally good-value Malaysian café in Bayswater, where Normah Abd Hamid has fulfilled a lifetime’s ambition by sharing her brilliant home cooking with friends and strangers.
A superb cheap eat, unexpectedly tucked away in a (slightly downbeat) small Bayswater shopping mall – Normah Abd Hamid’s friendly small café offers superior quality Malaysian home cooking at bargain basement prices. We all owe the website Eater a favour for putting the place on the map!
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Normah's Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Don’t be put off by the venue, the Malaysian food at this tiny cafe is very good indeed. Normah can usually be found in the cramped kitchen cooking your meal with love, her very special ingredient!"
"Malaysian Street food at incredibly low prices considering the care taken to produce such delicious food. A small basic cafe which is a little difficult to find within a non descript market but so worth the effort. If you love Malaysian food, head for Normah’s. Who is likely to both greet you and cook your meal. So very good!"
