    We went to Malt for my partner’s birthday and had the set menu with the pairing wines. We loved all the dishes in the menu, very delicious!

    I was called by the staff at Malt Dining right after booking online from the Fork to be informed that they actually have a function on & we’ll be seated at the bar. It was a bit disappointing however we were pleasantly surprised by the ambience at the bar area and beautiful high seating. The full menu was still on offer and the staff were spectacular. Pumpkin was to die for, so was the sourdough! Definitely will be back again :)

    The restaurant was very nice, although it wasn't quite the fine dining experience that was indicated. The Korean pork belly was perhaps a little too fatty, but the Japanese pumpkin was fantastic.

    We went to Malt for a birthday celebration. We had the 8-course set menu and everything on the menu was delicious. We were very impressed with the consistency of all the dishes on the menu. It was a very memorable evening. Highly recommended it!

    I eat out a fair bit and am quite a good home chef, so take that into account if you read my review. I ordered the smoked ham dish for starters, the quail for main and the white chocolate torte for dessert. The smoked ham dish lacked smokiness and was generally unimpressive. It constituted several slices folded on a plate. There was a lot of ham but only three 2cm pieces of sauteed pineapple. The Quail was so thickly coated in the crust. The seasoning was salty and not flavoursome with no identifiable aromatics. There was barely any leek puree, perhaps a small smear on the plate under the quail. The pecans offered a nice bit of crunch and light sweetness. The quail was dry, but not tough. There were four small pieces of peach. The peaches I suspect were not ripe as they were tough to cut. I finished the dish because I don't like wasting food, but I could have stopped 1/3 way through the first quail piece and ordered something else. The torte was not aesthetically inviting. Despite the 'crust' looking burnt, it didn't taste burnt. It was moist, the strawberries were a nice aesthetic tough, but tarte. The almonds added some crunch, but this was generally a basic standard dish. I should have ordered a side of vegetables. This would have helped support the lack of vegetable accompaniment, however, the wait staff member said the main was a large dish, so no need. Wait staff however were great, attentive and engaging. I didn't mention I was dissatisfied with anything because I would have felt terrible providing this feedback. I won't be going here to eat again. Location is great and inside has a higher end bistro feel. Glad I visited Malt, but I won't be returning.

    Fantastic. The degustation with wine pairings was well worth it. The food was beautiful. The service though made the night, best table for our anniversary, and the waiter was very engaging, professional and knowledgeable. We'll definitely be back

    The vibe of the restaurant was lovely - a good atmosphere with old building and modern furnishings. Service was excellent. The only thing we didn't like was the lengthy explanation of what was on our plate! The food was amazing though.

    This was one of the best dining experiences we have had in a long time. Beautiful food, fantastic wine, and friendly and very efficient service. We will definitely be back and will strongly recommend Malt to our friends. The Trout Sashimi was incredible as was the pork and the beef brisket my wife ordered. I really could not recommend this restaurant any more highly.

    Ordered the 6 course tasting menu and the meal was very good. However we felt a little rushed. with each course and when we asked for coffee the waitress said ‘you are already over rime and we need the table’. Coffees would have taken 10mins to serve, and it was not obvious that anyone was waiting for our table.... killed what would have orherwise been a very pleasant night.

    Menu was quite different to previous visits but interesting. Food was enjoyable and tasty. Coffee was luke warm but they made fresh ones and we weren’t charged so we were pleased with that. Overall a very enjoyable dining experience.

    We really enjoyed our dining experience at Malt. Staff were incredibly welcoming, accomodating and good humoured. We opted to have the sharing menu with dessert. We received more than ample food so felt this was incredible value and gave us the opportunity to taste some things we may not have gravitated to on first perusal of the menu. Flavours in each dish were fantastic but even better, the series of dishes the chef choose for us complemented each other well. We really enjoyed the way asian flavours eg sambal, miso etc were utilised. The Golden Syrup Leche Flan and the dessert special, Szechuan Amaretto Goat's curd, were both winners - intense flavours, interesting textures. Thanks again Malt for hosting us - we will most certainly return plus pass on our recommendation to friends/family.

    We came here for lunch and ordered the Angus steak and potatoes. The sauce on the steak was on point and the flavour of the Angus was very nice, however one of the steaks was very tough to the point where you could not swallow some of the meat. Maybe this piece was not cut against the grain. I would also recommend the provision of steak knives as the tougher steak took more effort to cut and we ended up being sweaty from the meal. It may be a good idea to turn down the aircon a few degrees on hotter day since they don't close the doors to the outside (It was a top of 31 degrees today). I must commend the head chef though, because every time I've eaten here the flavours of the meals always work really well together and are perfectly seasoned. In the past when we've eaten here the dinner waitstaff was more attentive and gave us better service. Not sure if it was because this waitress was in training or not.

    The food was delicious and I liked the share plate concept as we got to try a few different things. I was also impressed with the service especially when they found out it was my friend’s birthday and they gave her a card signed by all the staff and lit a candle in her dessert. It made the evening special for her!

    The service was amazing!! Food was delicious with lots of flavours and suited perfectly for our dietary requirements. We started with Entree’ - Scallion Crab on Corn tostados with kimchi and stuffs - Such a delicious start for our dinner - So much flavours and amazing textures!! Lamb ribs - The best Lamb ribs we have ever tried with an amazing sauce and greens - great balance. XO noodles with king prawns - The prawns itself was so perfectly cooked but the noodles was a bit too citrusy and we didn’t really feel the kick of XO flavour. Finished with a beautiful dessert - Torta Caprese - Great textures with well balanced chocolate flavour with Peach gelato, Chocolate crackle and peach sauce - perfect way to end the dinner!!! Definitely recommend this place and can’t wait to be back and try new dishes!!!

    Right from the start this promised to be an enjoyable dining experience. The wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu with just the right service to ensure an uninterrupted experience. We all chose the ocean trout which was exquisite. Beautifully cooked with tantalising flavours from a range of root vegetables. We will be back!

    A great place in the city to visit - cool bar and good service. Food was good but some dishes a bit too much going on and flavours not blending.
