“If you love Malaysian food, head for Normah’s”“a small and basic café serving street food at incredibly low prices”. It’s “a little difficult to find in a nondescript Bayswater market, but so worth the effort” as your host, Normah Abd Hamid, “is likely to both greet you and cook your meal” – taking “great care to produce delicious food”.

“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 33 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).

Don’t be put off by the venue, the Malays...

"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!"
