PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Kechil is loosely translated as “small” in Malaysian and with just 16 seats available; it certainly lives up to its name. Goh has garnered a reputation for delivering authentic Malaysian dishes from his various restaurants across Sydney and Chinta Kechil is no exception. Laksa here, however, is a speciality. The flavours are more robust than what is commonly served at Malaysian restaurants, with less coconut milk and more spice. To get the full “chinta” experience, team laksa with other old favourites such as char kway teow, spicy mee goreng and sambal prawns. A man who has been quoted saying “It’s nice to be important but it’s important to be nice” is the type of person who does well in the restaurant industry. Go Simon Goh.
