Amazing food as always

BLTAN attended Malaysian Chilli Crab Feast in September 2017, reviewed on 8 September 2017

Food is delicious as always. Everything was perfect. From the starters comprising of giant keropoks, spiral curry puffs and chicken satay, to the main star of the evening: THE Malaysian Chilli Crab. The crab and the sauce was simply divine. After that, I barely had room for the glass noodles salad, giant prawns and dessert. Food was a perfect 10. The hosts comprising of Yolanda, Sharif and Aunty Mary were a perfect 10 as well! All of us had a good laugh listening to Aunty Mary's stories and she is clearly passionate about her cooking and food. It was great to meet other guests and we had a lovely evening. Looking forward to the next Wild Serai Supperclub.

First supperclub I've been to and had a fantastic time. The food and hosts were incredible, they made you feel really welcomed and at home. The couple were great with everyone and Auntie Mary is a fantastic addition to the team with her wealth of knowledge, expertise on food and humour. I can see this club going from strength to strength and I look forward to dining with these guys again.

The host Yolanda is so so lovely and incredibly generous. We had a wonderful time with the Wild Serai team who put together a fabulous meal. Loved the specially curated street food menu. Flavours were spot on and perfectly balanced. Each dish was prepared with so much love and care! Looking forward to returning.

What an extraordinary night - an adventure and for a moment I really did feel like we had been transported to Kuching and Penang and so lovely all the aunties and uncles coming and talking to us and explaining about the food and Jimmy was a hoot - he was like the after dinner entertainment

Yolanda , I think is a truly amazing woman , host and cook and to think she is oncologist on top of it all !
The food was fabulous and bountiful , the satay freshly bbqed , the curry puffs and the beef redang so delicious that in fact I am craving it now 2 days later .
I took my Malaysian friend who sets a very high standard for her food and she was extremely impressed . Also a delightful couple we shared the evening with .
We shall be back - it is a truly authentic life enhancing experience
Thank you

j king attended Malaysian Chilli Crab Feast in March 2017, reviewed on 23 March 2017

The food was lovely and the satay in particular took me back to the hawker markets in Penang. Yolanda and her aunt Maria were very nice and took the time to speak to guests.
The chilli crab/lobster was delicious as were the buns, it would have been even better to have had proper utensils ie the skinny picks/forks to really get the most meat out of all the bits.
The only downside was the wait between courses, it would have been better if all the mains had been served at the same time...after the crab there was a bit of a wait for what was essentially some plain rice and 1 very nice prawn and then after that a 40 minute wait for dessert which was tasty but the wait made it a bit of an anticlimax so much so we forgot to take a picture of it for the blog!. Yolanda did say that this was a larger group than usual. The food was very nice and we would go to another of wild serai's supper clubs.

Wild Serai responded on 23 March 2017:

Thanks for taking the time to review and we are looking into the logistics of managing a bigger supperclub at external venues. We do understand the waiting time can be a let down and will look to improve on this.

Thank you for the feedback. :)

Wonderful food experience

tamaan attended Malaysian Streetfood Supperclub in March 2017, reviewed on 14 March 2017

This was our second time to enjoy the experience offered by the Wild Serai supper club. The hosts are extremely accommodating and friendly and the food is amazing. Aunty Mary's signature Tong Tau Foo and Chee Cheong Fun in a divine sauce was the highlight of the evening. However, we also ended up in a really great company of food lovers and all this amazing food was accompanied by a lot of entertaining banter and laughter. Thank you for the lovely evening!

Wild Serai responded on 17 March 2017:

Thanks so much to the 3 of you for coming! We really enjoyed hosting you and we're so glad that you enjoyed interacting with your group of fellow supperclubbers.๐Ÿ˜€ Was very nice to see everyone really getting into the food and having a great night out ๐Ÿ˜€

The best Malaysian food this side of KL

SimonBland attended Malaysian Streetfood Supperclub in March 2017, reviewed on 14 March 2017

Finding good Malaysian food in London is difficult, if not impossible, so my wife and I were very happy to hear about the Streetfood supper club event.

The dishes were nothing short of amazing, with the most delicious curry puffs, incredible Yong tau Foo and a show stopping Nasi Lemak. The atmosphere was also lovely - so much better than stuffy restaurants.

We cannot wait to go to the next one :)

Wild Serai responded on 14 March 2017:

Thank you so much for your very kind review! So glad you and both enjoyed yourselves and hope to have you both dine at our table again soon! :)

Malaysian food in refined surroundings

andrewhoinlondon attended Malaysian Sunday Lunch Feasting Menu in February 2017, reviewed on 27 February 2017

For this Sunday lunch supperclub, they had taken over a restaurant in marylebone. The service was fine. It looked like they asked everyone to arrive at the same time 1.30pm which I understand ie its like a supperclub style of serving everyone at the same time. While this can work, the alternative is to stagger arrivals since its a restuatant setting and this might have alleviated the crush at the door and reduced the wait between courses. The food was better than average with highlights being the fish course (prawn, scallop, crab laksa bisque) and the rendang sauce. The lowlights were the duck - the rather nice meet was lost in the spiciness of the rendang sance, the brulee was curdled and the roti was cold/ flabby. The ingriedients to a much better experience is here but the execution could be sharpened.

Fantastic, everyone go!

I had a lovely evening. I was powering through the end of flu, but still had a ball. Good atmosphere, friendly hosts, interesting fellow diners and, of course, sensational food.

I brought my friends' 12-year-old son for his first supper club as a birthday treat, and he loved it. I interviewed him for his new food blog about his experience and about the food we ate:

Thanks so much to Wild, Serai, Aunty Mary and the folks from 5 Foot Way, especially for welcoming your first junior diner.

Wild Serai responded on 3 February 2017:

Thanks again for coming! Glad you both enjoyed it and thanks so much for the blog piece. Let me know if you need that crash course in the art of Nasi Lemak we discussed!:) Take care

Nostalgic and mood-elevating

vijaythampy attended Malaysian Chilli Crab Feast in October 2016, reviewed on 2 October 2016

I experienced my first supper club experience here, and I loved it. I went with a couple of friends, but made friends with everyone else around the table. We were a party of 9 adults and 2 children, and the lunch was organised very smoothly.

The cooking was absolutely spot-on and had no weak-points whatsoever. Having lived in Singapore for 10 years, and being a year-old transplant in the UK, I was excited at the opportunity to experience home-made Malay food. I have to admit that the food took me back in time and it was both nostalgic and mood-elevating.

I'd absolutely recommend that you go try the experience out at least once.
