So thrilled that we have a new favorite family restaurant. Order the lobster, it's wonderful. Everything we ordered was tasty. Bring one of everything, please! Don't be afraid of the color of the pandan creme brulee, it's to die for.
The food is seriously delicious and a nice change in flavours from the usual. The prices are very good given the quality. We had great service and can't wait to go back. Only two slight negatives: there were kids running around the restaurant, which wasn't the restaurant's fault, but made it seem more like a fast-food place. Also, the drinks, while extremely creative, are a bit on the sweet (read headachy) side. So we will just stick with beer next time. All in all, I think this is one of the best values in the area, with creative and delicious food that you can't get everywhere. Two thumbs up!
Have been going here for several times, and we had the best Server this night, Thalia. Great customer service, great attention. Helped make for one of the best experiences for my family and I at the restaurant. The food continued to not disappoint. We had a Claypot curry, Crab Rangoon, Satay, Chicken Rice and Sauteed Kai Lan. We all shared our dishes, and everyone was pleased with the choices. I like to visit this place everytime I visit Tustin. Very grateful that there is a Malaysian/Singapore restaurant, and of this calibre in the neighborhood.
Sat us down quick, was not too crowded for Mothers day. Service was good and professional, and food was served with good timing. Food is traditional Malaysian style.
The food was fantastic. The Curry Puffs were amazing. Our entire party loved their entrees. We had the Malyasian Kung Pao Chicken, Tangerine Chicken and Spicy Shrimp. They brought out a complimentary Chocolate Dessert for Mother's Day - delicious! The Mango Martini and Mamosas were made to perfection. We're already planning our next trip. Bravo!
The Server was great, the food flavor was fine but too much cooking oil was used for our taste, and the greeter didn't know anything about our OpenTable reservations. The best part of the lunch experience was that the restaurant wasn't busy, it was therefore quiet, and we weren't rushed which allow for a long uninterrupted visit with our guest.
We will have to give this restaurant another try.
Based on our first experience, we cannot assess fairly as it was not a good experience.
Staff needs training.
Very authentic Malaysian food (pretty similar to Singapore food)! Ask for the sambal chili if you want a spicy dipping sauce.
My first time having Malay. My Indian friend is a usual here so I agreed to let him order for both of us. We shared the Nasi Lemak (with chicken instead of beef) which wasn't labelled as a spicy dish, but was mildly spicy anyway and tasted similar to Thai dishes. We shared also the Char Kway Teow which was a spicy dish and my friend had forgotten to order it mild, but it was still tolerable. Overall, both dishes were decent. If the restaurant was down my street, I'd visit again to try other dishes, but it's a 35 minute drive away without traffic for an okay experience.
While Orange County has numerous Asian restaurants, Malaysian food is not common. This restaurant is a find. Noodle dishes are great. Curries are on the hot side. Surprisingly, the restaurant has a great crime brulee. Prices are quite reasonable. Will return.
I have been a regular at Belacan grill since it's inception in Tustin, and have never had a bad experience with them, seen servers come and go, but the level of service is always excellent, and I've eaten almost everything on the menu, they never cease to amaze me. The Tuesday night deal is awesome, their Valentine's Special was even better. Will come back time and time again. Jimmy you run a great restaurant!
Food was fantastic, but there should have been at least 2 more workers available on V-day. It's strange seeing empty tables and still have to wait 30 mins to get seated with a reservation - perhaps other reservations were queued up. I waited at the bar for a table, and had to check with host myself for a status update. Our server did the best she could. The server and host were both apologetic of the wait-time and slow service, even though we didn't make a complaint at the time. That said, I'd still come back and all things considered, everything was OK.
Food was less than ok, nothing great. Our server was super helpful with the menu and very nice. I don't need to go back.
Wonderful food, great service, full bar and great location w/easy access to 55 Freeway. The servers are helpful with menu suggestions- expecially good for first time guests.
Try this friendly, unique restaurant- you won't be disappointed!
To the extent that service was good, the portions were very small. The food seems to be pretty authentic, compared to food you would find in Malaysia or Singapore.
We love the diverse menu. The wait staff was very helpful describing the dishes. Both our meals were wonderful.
Having never eaten Malaysian food, I checked out this restaurants website before making reservations. The website is quite nice and I must say the actual dining experience exceeded my expectations. The food came up quickly and was hot & delicious. I love Thai food and can now say I love Malaysian food too! The restaurant is simple and elegant, service was friendly and professional. Our server went out of his way to answer our questions and made sure we had everything we needed. I'll be coming back for hh and $22 for 2 Tues specials!
Great Malaysian food! Their weekly deals are really a great find - especially Tuesday nights! Nasi Goreng, literally all their curries and their noodle dishes are so flavorful. I like the fact that you can request the level of spiciness for each dish. I have never walked away hungry...quite the opposite!
This is probably our 8th trip to the Belacan Grill - usually with kids. We love the menu, and the food does not disappoint. It's unusual, but not so unfamiliar that those that love Thai, Chinese, and Indian food will be confused. Our favorite waiter was not assigned to our table tonight, so the service was not quite as good as normal. One of our favorite restaurants.....don't miss out!
I was trying to make reservations for a Chinese New Year's eve dinner since most Chinese restaurants were booked, and decided to try Belacan Grill. It turned out better than expected and my family was quite pleased with the Malaysian style food. Service was excellent, although I would have liked for the server to recommend some dishes for the evening. We will come back.
