Laksa KingExcellentLaksa King4.4 Based on 5553 reviews fromSee all reviews review us on ★★★★★ 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.

Simple and efficient, traditional style dining that I can't recommend highly enough. Give it a go!Hi M. ★★★★★ Always busy great value dishes best duck laksa in flemmingtonEugel V. ★★★★★ Located near the city, this Laksa King is a must go if you live in the West, while it may get busy most days, if you're eating by yourself or with a companion then you can avoid most of the queue.We tried the seafood laksa and the roast duck laksa, and honestly, if you love creamy and slightly chilli broths, you must get them! 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.

The outstanding customer service. In particular waiter, older gentleman. His service was excellent and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Thank you.Marz ★★★★★ I Went here for a family gathering. This was my first time eating at a resturant after 5 years and the service was excellent. Eric the waiter/manager was very charismatic and professional, the waitresses were really cute and amiable too. I enjoyed my time here, the food was fine and my favourite dish was probably the mushrooms. I didn't get to see the menu because my relatives ordered them but this was a very fun experienceーthough my parents thought otherwise, because they got food poisoning from their weak immune and digestive systems. 😂Annie P. ★★★★★ Good quality ingredients. Nice flavour. Fast service.Nick A. ★★★★★ Our usual family go to place. Love the food and specially the seafood curry laksa is the best. Always greeted with smile and Eric the Manager is nice guy.Md.

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.
