What our clients say

Laksa KingExcellentLaksa King4.4 Based on 5637 reviews fromSee all reviews review us on ★★★★★ Very good laksa, price is not expensive. Need to get there early or wait in line.林柏佑 ★★★★★ Everyrhing was fantastic as usual... just venue needs to be renovated... it was very cold outside waited 30 min.. but worth the wait. Foods amazing!Kate T. ★★★★★ Great food, great prices. Sometimes have to wait if during peak times for a table. Up to 20Minutes.Mark ★★★★★ After the delicious meal, I asked the King where his name derived from. He was coy in his response, saying he merely worked here as a waiter and that 'Laksa' was a type of cuisine more so than any royal line of heritage. What a humble monarch, I thought.Nathan L. ★★★★★ Amazing laksa at a great price. Halal beef and chicken as well!!! Get in early, it gets packed! But even when it's packed it's quick with takeawayAamer C. ★★★★★ Best Malaysian I've ever had! It felt like a very authentic experience and the food was delicious!Sam H. ★★★★★ Enjoyed the Duck Laksa, Beef Laksa & Veg Spring Rolls 5/5 👏👏Duff B. ★★★★★ Never wanted to hug a bowel of noodles so bad. If you like strong spicy noodle soups, har mee is for you. The fish fillet is so soft, the two different noodle types (thick and thin) offers an exciting experience. The broth was spicy and salty and flavourful.Betty S ★★★★★ If you're in the area, try it now.It's easily one of the best restaurants in town, and arguably the best place for laksa in Melbourne. If you like rich, coconuty soup, and well-textured noodles, this place us for you. A personal favourite is the shrimp dumpling spicy soy entree.Jackson S. ★★★★★ Never disappoints great food, service and staff are friendlyWe go everytime we are in the areaStephen G. ★★★★★ Best laksa in Melbourne and it’s always the same taste in the last 15 years 🥰Katie ★★★★★ Been coming here for sometime and the food never ever disappoints! 100% the best laksa you can wrap your mouth around.Michelle C. ★★★★★ Was recommended by many friends and this place did not disappoint. Fast, fresh and delicious.Becci L. ★★★★★ We tried the vegetarian Laksa and special fried rice. Both being very delicious. But what surprised us, was the mango juice that we ordered for the kids. I am sure it was not fresh as it's not mango season but it was very good. Didn't seem like packaged juice at all.Amruta T. ★★★★★ Probably one of the best restaurants in Glen Waverley, and there are a lot of good ones.Highly recommend for taste and value.Include chicken rice with your Laksa and you will be winning.Jamie B ★★★★★ Delicious Asian cuisine I had in Melbourne! Try the Assam fish. It's super yummy 🤤Carolyn K. ★★★★★ Efficient speedy and deliciousAlways busy, walk in and ask to write down your name and phone number and they call when your table is readyConsistently perfectTroy O. ★★★★★ Disability-Friendly. (Electric)Wheelchair accessible. Nice food. Helpful and respectful staff. Highly recommended!!Leo N. ★★★★★ always a 10/10, quick service, fresh and tasty food! lots of vegetarian options (veg laksa and veg spring rolls are very nice!)Neha V. ★★★★★ Food was really nice and the staff were the best. All of them very respectful and helpful.Roya B. ★★★★★ The best in the business 👌🏼👌🏼 We had a group of 9 at 5pm on a Sunday night and the entire place was pumpingggg with lines out of the door. This is standard for them, which is why they've limited seatings to one hour. We shared 3 x satay chicken skewers, 3 x roti with satay sauce, 2 x seafood laksa bowls, 1 x fried kuay teow and 1 x Hainanese chicken. Food came out super hot and flavoursome.I paid via Liven and got cashback so love that integration! Cash is preferable but they also accept card (1.7% surcharge) and use Mr Yum for self serve ordering.Good Food Good M. ★★★★★ The hawkers markets in Malaysia and Singapore can't compete with this place. Wednesday afternoon/evening, we thought we'd drop in for a quick bite before going to Cirque de Soliel. Already the place was jammed packed with patrons, plus probably another 10 groups waiting to get a table. A short wait of no more that 5 mionutes saw the three of us get a table. Food chosen, it was only a matter of a few minutes before the first dishes hit the table. All super fresh, tasty and cooked to the minute. We bought our own bottle of wine and thought the corkage at $9.00 per bottle ($3.00 per head in our case) was cheap at twice the price. We were done in an hour, only because we wanted to. We could have taken more or less time but the Circus bekoned. This wasn't our first or last time. The place is amazing. Forgot to mention, the Peking duck was great.Carl S. ★★★★★ The Laksa have always been fantastic.Update 2024. The service has always been efficient without being great. But last night we had fantastic service from Ronald.Hope to see Ronald again soon.John B. ★★★★★ One of my favourite places to goThe food is great quality and super tasty, absolute value for money with large portionsGet is early this place does get super busy but the wait isnt generally too longServe is great and the food comes out quicklyChantelle D. ★★★★★ Been here many many times, just never thought to review it.The uncle here has been here since the start and is always good to ask for menu suggestions.Ended up ordering lots of the specials. Mud crab noodles, scallops, chilli barramundi for mother's day lunch was great.At other times, the dice beef, nonya fish are always good staples to choose from.Strangely, we never really thought the laksa here was fantastic. Always preferred the dishes.Bruno L ★★★★★ Always a favourite when in the area. food is tasty and service is fast.Thomas ★★★★★ Always delicious. The truffle duck fried rice and truffle prawns are especially delicious.Hannah M ★★★★★ If you ever need a tasty and hearty meal, take the train to Newmarket and right across the road is Laksa King. I highly recommend the roast duck curry laksa!Regan V. ★★★★★ Great laksa, been going here for years and it never gets old. Highly recommend the combination or duck laksa. Char kway teo is also really good!!El W ★★★★★ Wasabi prawns and Chicken Roti Roll is simply delicious. Will be visiting every chance I get.Gunjan A. ★★★★★ Fantastic laksa, possibly the best we’ve ever had. I had the mixed seafood with rice noodles, and it was filled with scallops, prawns, squid with a fragrant delicious broth. We also enjoyed the beef, duck and mixed laksa with our friends who had a choice of noodles.Service was friendly and attentive and there is a a BYO option as well as well priced drinks.Marion K. ★★★★★ It's just amazing!!!!!!! One of the best Laksa's i ever hadnclspin ★★★★★ Love their laksa, chicken ribs, char kway teow, mee Goreng .

Dive into the Culinary Legacy

Laksa King, A Melbourne Icon Since 1998

In a legendary culinary tale of Melbourne, Esmond Wong created Laksa King in 1998. Emerging from the vibrant tapestry of a small arcade off Racecourse Rd, Flemington, this gastronomic haven quickly became the stuff of local legend.

The clamour for its extraordinary flavours resonated far beyond the arcade’s confines, prompting Esmond to orchestrate a move to grander quarters in 2010 – the birth of the Laksa King we revere today.

Embark on a journey through our expanded repertoire, where each dish is a revelation, a testament to Esmond’s unyielding commitment to culinary excellence. The extensive variety caters to the demands of our loyal patrons and invites the seasoned connoisseur to explore the depths of authentic Malaysian-Chinese fusion.
