I love Auntie Mary and Wild Serai as they are my taste of home. There are few places in London that I can say have good Malaysian food but with Wild Serai, I feel they have many of my favourites as close to authentic as one can get without having the tropical humidity of KL!
My favourites are:
-The sardine curry puffs- just like I used to eat at my grandma's. I had totally forgotten that sambal sardines existed. The balance of flavours was perfect.
-The Yong Tau Foo! Oh my goodness, I've never seen any restaurant outside Malaysia that serves YTF. My favourite since childhood days, it brought back memories of eating it with my mum, chee cheong fan being my all-time best things to eat! Wild Serai's YTF is so yummy!
-Then the satay, I mean Yo's satay is so authentic. None of this deep fried, baked stuff. Proper satay- takes time and tastes like love has gone into making it.
-The Streetfood Supperclub star was the 'tasting portion' Nasi Lemak. Wow! Quail's eggs made it all much more amazing. The rendang was SOOOOO good. The sambal just nice. As I said, I'm still dreaming of it. And so beautifully presented. A contender to the recent Masterchef version!
-And then the finale. Just when I thought nothing could make me happier- that Salted Gula Melaka ice cream. WOW! They make that an ice-cream flavour and sell it in Waitrose! I wished I had more.
Thanks Wild Serai. I really had a great Edible Experience and still dreaming of it till today...

Thank you so much for a great Malaysian Streetfood experience! Being Malaysian ourselves we can attest to the authenticity of flavours and the delicate balance of spices. Superb satay, Yong Tau Foo and Nasi Lemak were the stars of the show. Other starters curry puffs and popiah also delicious. Dessert platter very good and beautifully plated. We will be back again soon.

shobes attended Malaysian Streetfood Supperclub in March 2018, reviewed on 22 March 2018

What a delightful evening! I am Malaysian, and the food brought me right back to the food stalls of Kuala Lumpur. Warm delicious curry puffs, perfectly cooked satay with that smoky taste that is so hard to come by outside of Malaysia. The Nasi Lemak was divine, topped with a perfectly cooked quail's egg. The beef rendang tantalised the taste buds with complex flavours and rich spices. Dessert did not fail to impress: traditional Malaysian "kueh lapis" and coconut filled pancakes with hand made ice cream. The food arrived promptly and the wait staff were fantastic. My Malaysian friend and I were thrilled to pieces, and we will definitely be returning. Thank you Wild Serai for an unforgettable experience!

Thanks so much for the very generous review. We are so glad you enjoyed the evening and look forward to hosting you again soon :)

Been meaning to attend a Wild Serai Supperclub for some time now and am glad to say it was all I expected it to be and more!Great atmosphere and very central location as they were running the pop up at Darjeeling Express, Kingly Court in Carnaby street in soho. Have eaten at Darjeeling Express too and the food is delicious! For nibbles we were given giant keropok (prawn crackers) with a sweet chilli dip. This was followed by lovely curry puffs made with a spiral double double pastry filled with sardine sambal. These were delicious and I could have eaten 4-5 all on my own! A soft skin Spring roll (popiah) infused with a chilli crab sauce was served along side this. To follow we had very well marinated chicken satay served with a delicious peanut sauce dip. My favourite dish was the Nasi lemak (coconut rice served with a delicious melt in your mouth beef rendang and quails egg sambal and topped with a cute little fried quails egg). The crispy anchovies that accompanied this dish were divine! I am a beef rendang lover and this was the best I have ever had! Yong tau Foo and cheong fun was also delish and a more unusual kind of dish as not found easily available in London. The Yong tau Foo was very fresh and nicely steamed. To finish we enjoyed a pandan pancake filled with grated coconut served with a salted Gula
Melaka ice cream. We were also served some cute rainbow coloured Kueh lapis (Nyonya style cake) which was divine. We had a brilliant afternoon and look forward to trying the Chilli Crab Supperclub very soon!

Fab homemade Chee Chong Fun & Yong Tau Foo!

FoodieLover attended Malaysian Streetfood Supperclub in March 2018, reviewed on 20 March 2018

The team behind Wild Serai are a passionate family of cooks who love what they do and do it extremely well. I had heard a lot about the Supperclub and was glad to say it was one of the most enjoyable Malaysian meals I had in a long time. The satay was really nicely done, curry puffs were warm morsels of flaky pastry encasing a sardine sambal filling and the popiah with Chilli Crab sauce was indeed a clever twist! The star of the show for me was the homemade Yong tau Foo and Chee Chong fun although the Nasi lemak with quails egg sambal and beef rendang was also very good. Finished off with a delicious pandan pancake, salted Gula Melaka ice cream and Nyonya Kueh lapis. Wait team were lovely and knowledgable about the food. Will be back very soon.

Awesome Mummy and Daughter Date at Carnaby Street

Natasha Fonseka attended Malaysian Streetfood Supperclub in March 2018, reviewed on 20 March 2018

My 5 year old and I always look forward to our lunch dates. This time though we knew that we were in for an extra special treat. The setting was relaxed. The cocktails perfect and the food was Divine. The portions were generous. As with all Wild Serai supperclubs I’ve been to -I was rather full by the time I finished my ytf. But there was no way I could not devour all of the Nasi Lemak. My daughter’s benchmark for satay is Wild Serai and it’s impossible to be that in London. The rendang is literally the best I’ve had. Extra points for accommodating both our allergies. Pleasantly surprised to be seated with friends who also raved about the food!

Thank you for the lovely review. We look forward to hosting you and your daughter again at our supperclub very soon 😀

It pains me to say this, but our experience at our first Supperclub was memorable, but for the wrong reasons. The time management was terrible, we were sat there for 3hrs in total, and still had to take our desserts 'to go' as we did not want to wait another 30-45 mins for the final course. We received no apology or explanation for why the kitchen was so delayed, which is disappointing. I understand working in borrowed kitchens can be tricky, but event management should be well versed in adapting to different scenarios. I'd like to end on a positive, the food was excellent (esp. the yong tau foo), despite having to eat some of the dishes luke-warm which i'm sure was not part of the plan.

Dear Erlisa

Thank you for taking time to post a review and am glad you enjoyed he food and thought it was excellent.

We do in fact tell guests at time of booking that the 6 course tasting menu takes at least 2.5 hours. This is authentic Malaysian food cooked from traditional recipes and it takes time. We were in fact running about 30 minutes late due to kitchen logistics (the extractor fan had to be on whilst we were cooking and it was chilling the food while playing so we had to keep turning the gas on and off). I believe the wait staff did their best to get you served as quickly as possible as you were keen to leave as you were with your 8 year old son. I appreciate that the Supperclub style of dining may be a long time for a child.

Many thanks.
