One of the best Laksa's i ever hadnclspin ★★★★★ 📍Laksa King, FlemingtonThere is always a line out the door for a reason. Perfectttt meal for a cooler night. I got the duck laksa, which was sooo delicious had all the yummy flavours, but the duck was a tad too firm. Would go the chicken instead. Pro tip: they give you a 10% discount if you finish dinner and leave before 6:30. Always great value, most laksa $16-19.Overall 4.6 ⭐️ out of 5.Julia E. ★★★★★ Love their laksa, chicken ribs, char kway teow, mee Goreng . We always ask to have the sweet and sour with chicken instead of pork and they always accommodate, the kids love it!Shurooq K ★★★★★ We love our Malaysian cuisine. And when we had food from here, the taste was irresistible! Both our kiddoos simply enjoyed every single spoon. Cosy and warm welcoming! Hats off to Eric, the manager for making us very happy with every moment whilst we were there. WILL GO AND COME AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN. Keep it up guys! We simply love ur food!RANJIT R. ★★★★★ This place was packed but tables cleared pretty quickly. Food is on the table fast after ordering. We had duck laksa, honey chicken and chicken rice. All were great, the laksa was creamy coconut, curry base, combination noodles, fried tofu, duck and eggplant. The honey chicken was crisp and just the right amount of sweet. The chicken rice had good base flavour and the dipping sauces lifted the dish. With a couple of beers we were all in for $71.A D. ★★★★★ Always great service and tasty food. 😋 😎 👌Judge “JUDG33NT” J. ★★★★★ The laksa is always great here.

Topped generously with duck and seafood, both bowls will leave you happy.We also ordered the roasted duck fried rice with truffle oil, and it's such a delicious fried rice. While the flavours of the truffle are a little muted, the roast duck pulls through and carries the dish.Should come try it out if you're in the west.Phi-long Hoang (. ★★★★★ Classic spot for great Malaysian food. Expect to wait a while, but it's 100% worth it!Rhys C. ★★★★★ Online ordering venue but they also do table menus if need be. Very busy place with budget friendly meals.

We scanned the menu and were lead to our table in the middle of the spacious, comfortable and very clean restaurant.We ordered the for drinks we ordered the lime and kumquat, grass jelly tea and the lychee. Service was fast and we really enjoyed the flavours of the drinks with mine having lychees in the drink as a tasty surprise.For lunch we ordered the friend kuay teow, the combination laksa and the honey chicken.All were delicious and perfectly balanced. We have just been in Malaysia and this was just as good, if not identical to some of the amazing flavours we ate there.With friendly, attentive service, a beautifully clean and comfortable restaurant and delicious meals you will not be disappointed.Keep note that they have hour slots on Saturdays as they get busy. We were there after 1500h and it was still busy but the team there made it look easy.Thanks to everyone who served us and we will be back.Hewey Hjs_loader

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.
