Restoran Aunty Nat at Sri Hartamas

Drove past Aunty Nat at Mid Valley City for gazillion times, but never check it out as it gave me an impression that the food there would be overpriced. That is why I was quite reluctant when Lena Ban suggested us to go to their Sri Hartamas branch for a last lunch with Fannie before she goes to Singapore for good.

Located at the much quieter section of Sri Hartamas, I have to admit I have never ventured into this part before. Quieter it is, but that doesn’t mean that parking is no longer a problem. While it is not as bad as Desa Sri Hartamas, it still took us a good 5 minutes to find one, and it wasn’t even a proper parking slot.

The interior of the Nyonya restaurant certainly got my vote. Rustic but classy, most of the dining furnitures are wooden, and black and white photos decorate the white wall. And with a mini waterfall, the overall ambience of comfort and relaxation. Would appeal especially to corporate slaves like me.


All the ala-carte mains here are called as Quick Meals, and it ranges from fried rice to soup meehoon. And to my surprise, most if not all of the Quick Meals cost RM8.00 only. Definitely reasonable considering the location, quality and the substantial portion of the dishes here. The Sambal Belacan Fried Rice with Beef (or Chicken) is one good example. While I am not exactly sure how Nyonya this fried rice is, it certainly tasted very good. No soggy rice, generous amount of meat, and one kick-arse sambal belacan to eat with.

The Sweet & Sour Chicken with Rice (RM8.00++) was a disappointment. While not exactly a bad one, it tasted very ordinary and I thought the chicken meat itself was a tad too tough to chew.

The noodles I’ve tried here were all delectables as well. The Stir Fried Kuay Teow (RM8.00++) was slightly spicy, and a bit wet, the way I love it.

While the name of Shredded Veg & Meat Noodle (RM8.00++) would not exactly make me jump up in excitement, it turned out to be an absolute winner too. The thin noodle used felt very springy, and full of flavours without the starchy taste.

There are a lot of appetizers and side dishes available, and most are priced around RM8-RM12. As most of our dishes came with some chicken meat already, we ordered two sotong dishes as side instead. When we asked the captain (or owner maybe?), she suggested Crispy Fried Sotong (RM12.00++) to us. A good recommendation it was indeed, as the sotong was true to its name, very crispy and the aroma was irresistable. A perfect side dish to go along with our mains.

Yet another gem would be their Spicy Stir-Fried Sotong (RM12.00++). This one comes with spicy gravy, together with onions and red chilli peppers. Would have been great eating it with rice I am sure.

With all those heaty and spicy food, it is best eating them with iced cooling drinks. Such as the Iced Cincau (RM2.50++) and the bottomless Iced Chinese Tea (RM2.00++), that comes in a small Tiger Beer glass (ops, I hope I was not seen drinking it by my passing church members! ).

I am a big sucker of Cendol, so when I saw it is available on the menu I ordered it without any second thought. Priced at RM4.50, it came with alot of short fat strands of cendol and big red beans. And with the right amount of gula melaka (palm sugar), it was a heavenly dessert to have especially on a hot sunny afternoon.

Overall I must say I am very impressed by this restaurant, not only by its delicious food and reasonable prices, but also by its wonderful ambience and attentive service. I am absolutely delighted to add yet another fine eatery into my lunch list, as this place is considerably near to my office. Without a doubt I would definitely come back to try their other delights.

  1. New Kid on the Blog – Kakaka…oh but please take note that the Stir-fried Kuay Teow is not a typical CKT with kerang type.timlow2002 – Hmm….I must try the MV branch and see whether there are any differences or not.

  2. that side is quieter..but just as notorious when it comes to finding parking..looks pretty normal la the dishes u ordered..except the sotong dishes..lets see when i will pop by also..

  3. same as u, i’ve drove past this place but haven tried it out yet. since u mentioned that the food and the price was reasonable, we’re going to give it a try if we go to midvalley.

  4. zjchen – Normal type but tasted very good oh.preciouspea – Eh the 2 times I went there the crowd was not too big, and the service was very prompt and good. Noted on the Canton Kuey Teow, will try it on the next visit. ai wei – Oh gimme 5! Then u should try the Cendol at Penang Village and Souled Out as well.limmeiyen – Sort of new, but have been using it for the past 2 months liau woh.Sugar Bean – Try it and let me know what u think of them. Has been receiving mixed reviews on this place actually.tummythoz – not super busy anymore, but still BUSY. Why haven’t you check out that char siew yet?!

  5. Would be good to do a review / try  Melaka Street SS 2 ( excellente curry kapitan chickens + desserts ) or Sri Malacca PJ State ( excellente nyonya fried rice + assam fish )  if you havent try , I believe somehow Malacca Nyonyas do a better lemak job and more tasty food generally  in most of their dishes. Is this Nat Auntie Malaccan ah or Pg ?

  6. tonixe – Oh, would you be interested to do reviews on those restaurants u mentioned with me!? Not sure about Aunty Nat’s origin though. Well I rated them good not based on their Nyonya authenticity, but simply based on my personal taste. tummythoz – Kekeke….good food is never too far for food junkies like us no?BigBoysOven – Emotionally wonderful!? that’s the first for me. Didn’t know you are such an emo person.

  7. The prices are really good and they look equally delicious! I’m hankering for the sambal belacan fried rice. The only place I know to get hold of good cendol is Mdm Kwan’s which is super expensive. This looks like a good alternative 😛

  8. @ai wei – Try Melaka Cendol at Kelana Mall, Restoran Selero Negeri, they serve cendol durian and original cendol. The gula melaka syrup is thick and nice.. just behind Giant Kelana Jaya
