Defnitely Not Worth It

If poor customer service and contaminated salad bars are your thing, then you've come to the right place. When we walked into the restaurant, we met up with an employee who pointed to a table that was already occupied by another customer's belongings. I have no idea why he made such a bone headed move because that happened to be the only seat in the house that was taken. This absent minded employee was the same guy who, midway through our dinner, took out a broom and dustpan to sweep the floor. I honestly don't know about you but watching people sweep in front of me makes me lose my appetite rather rapidly.

It's not that big of an issue for me because the food wasn't any good to begin with. Having said that I still wish they had labelled the dishes at the buffet table so I know what I am actually consuming. I can tell you this much though...labeling their food wouldn't have been very labor intensive at all because you can literally count the number of dishes available on your fingers. What disgusted me even more than the poor customer service was their salad bar. How would you like to munch on cucumber slices and leaves of lettuce that have been vegged on by fruit flies? I didn't think so, not even if the bill came out to be $10.50.

Give us back the OLD Kedah House!!

Bigger is NOT always better. Although the new location is newer and bigger, everything ie. the food and the service has gone DOWNHILL except the price!!! The food quality has deteriorated, the taste is sub-standard(compared to the old Kedah House) and the portions are also smaller. They also have an over-priced buffet selection where the variety is not only limited but also stale. But all that could be overlooked. What is most appalling is the service, or the lack of. The service is EXTREMELY slow and the staff are inefficient, quite clueless and also rather rude.

Sadly, the appeal of Kedah House is no longer there. The old Kedah House on Fraser and 41st was most charming because of the very reasonable prices, authentic taste and friendly service(although they can also be quite slow at that time). All these were reasons why people chose to go to Kedah House instead of the many other Malaysian restaurants in the Lower Mainland.

There is absolutely no more reason to go back to this new establishment unless you crave for over-priced, lousy food and non-existent customer service, and if you don't mind waiting one hour for your food.

Missing the old Kedah House.........

Home Cooking at it's best

Don't let the negative comments disuade you from visiting this down to earth, clean and pleasant restaurant. Yes they have had a few hiccups but most of the negatives have been ironed out.

It's like eating in a Malay home. The staff is friendly and polite. The owner has a heart of gold.

Not all dishes are spectacular, but what they do well they do very well. I recommend the Satay, Mersing noodles (Kedah style fried rice vermicelli), and gadoh-gadoh if ordering a-la-carte. The all you can eat Buffet (served Friday night, Sat and Sunday, lunch and dinner) is great value. They also sell great curry puffs (take home a few) and Malay deserts (which are very labour intensive to create).
