Awesome food, definitely worth the trek – I read the reviews by others and can't understand what they are talking about. I used to live in hoboken and one of my regrets about moving to Astoria is that I can't come here as often as I would like.
I still try since I am a very picky eater. I have introduced several of my friends to this restaurant over the years and they have always had a good experience.
Yesterday, my girlfriend ordered "Lichee with shrimp" which was also quite tasty. Just be careful when you order the fruit dishes to ask if it is sweet cause you might get the cloying feeling midway through your entree. Thankfully we had my favorite dish is the "butternut squash with chicken" to balance it out.
Topped off with fresh coconut water, we were in absolute heaven.
Since the other reviews have a bone to pick about the service, I will say this. The service itself was good in a normal, non-intrusive but attentive manner. They didn't have to do back flips to satisfy us but I have come to expect decent service and get unhappy only if we have trouble catching the attention of the waiter like in Rosa Mexicana. In all the times that I have been to Satay Malaysian, this has been my normal experience.
The only time I had to wait for 15 minutes was lunchtime on July 4th weekend when the place was packed. That seemed reasonable to me.
Good Malaysian Food – I've been to Satay many times and I've always found the food delicious. The service really needs improving. Recently when I received the check the waiter stood there watching me figure out how much tip to give. It was very awkward.
The worst restaurant in New Jersey (IMO) – I feel that this is the worst restaurant in New Jersey. There was really slow food delivery and most importantly, it simply didnt taste very good. What was more shocking though was the service. The service is incredibly bad, and the waitress was unreasonably rude. She was even openly angry at customers which was really shocking us. She was quick to easily to argue with customers. Lastly, do not expect a neat or beautiful environment in this restaurant. I never want to go back again.
worst cutomer service – The food is ok, but the service is really bad. There was a waitress even yelled to us on the phone for no reasons, and they even hung up on us when we called for delivery. Also really unreliable that they will spill out the beverage on the way they deliver, but they do not return the cost of the beverage, nor giving a new cup of beverage. Attitude is always rude!
Very good food at a reasonable price – Roti Kanai is a great start for the meal. Infact, other roti appetizers are very good as well. Disappointed with the soup a bit, but the main course (Pad Thai and Satay Fried Rice) did not disappoint me. Similar to Sri Thai in Hoboken, very good food at a reasonable price. Quick service and a lot of choices.
Great food and presentation! – Satay in Hoboken is addictive -- I used to go for lunches and dinners there, and order takeouts. The prices are very reasonable, and the restaurant is so close to Manhattan (approx. 2 blocks from the PATH station). My favorites there are Chicken Pineapple on Coconut Rice (served in a pineapple shell) and Shrimp Mango on Coconut Rice. Curry dishes and appetizers are great, too.
Hot Malaysian – This is literally a hot spot when it comes to the food. Satay is one of those favorite haunts on Washington where the service and food is always on the money. Try the ribs, sizzling beef and couple it with coconut rice. Great desserts of peanute pancake, moochi (you can get all 4 different flavors if you ask) or the pan fried ice cream. Beware of the chili signed food items not unless you want to call the fire department to douse the flames in your mouth.
