About Selera Malaysia Bistro

Selamat Datang (Welcome) to Selera Malaysia Bistro!

Selera Malaysia Bistro offers authentic, flavoursome and mouth-watering cuisines of Malaysia and the only authentic Malay restaurant in the UK North East. Malaysian food has found its home in London and in other UK major cities for many years. It was only in the recent years that Malaysian food has gained its popularity upon the crowning of Ping Coombes as MasterChef champion 2014. Another Malaysian has also made it to the quarter finals of MasterChef UK 2018.

Our menu spread reflects the unique multi-ethnic makeup of our population which include Malay, Chinese, Indian and other ethnic groups in Borneo. Being a British colony between the 18th and 20th century, there are many English and Scottish historical and cultural influenced into the Malaysian traditions. All our food is freshly prepared with carefully chosen best quality local produce and ingredients, maintaining our cooking traditions and practices and the use of flavoursome imported herbs and spices found in Malaysia and neighbouring tropical countries. We pride ourselves with all these to ensure our food and dishes taste as original as possible of those found in Malaysia.

We are situated in Aberdeen, the North Sea oil capital city. Located at 19 Correction Wynd, we are just off Aberdeen Union Street, beside St Nicholas kirkyard and Mall which is approximately 4 minutes walk from Union Square mall and the Aberdeen Train and Bus Stations. Our Bistro is situated in a serene place suitable for relaxation and to catch-up with friends and families, whilst still in the vicinity of city centre facilities and major transportation access.

We are extremely pleased to be the 2018 national winners of two prestigious Scotland's food awards: 'Best Malaysian Restaurant' by Scottish Asian Food Awards & 'Best Family Friendly Restaurant' by the Scottish Premier Independent Curry Event (SPICE) Awards. We are extremely grateful to our customers, supporters, chefs and staff who have contributed directly and indirectly in having Selera to be among the best in Scotland, if not in the UK. Based on the information provided by the Malaysian Embassy in London, this is the first ever, a Malaysian restaurant in the entire UK to win not just one but two national awards within the same year.

We have a large menu ranging from meat, fish, vegetarian and also for vegans, from a selection of normal and kids menu as well as Malaysian speciality hot, cold and healthy drinks.

Drop by for lunch or dinner, or simply book us for a special function on any day / time of the week. You will be utterly pleased with our delights!
