I love the patio! On a nice summer night it is very pleasant. My only regret is that they don't carry the prosecco any longer. The portions are large and the service is great.

The food was good but the atmosphere didn't sound like Malaysia. In the complex is fine. The kitchen close at 10 pm, so I suggest to go not later than 9.

I am glad I have found a good Southeast Asian restaurant in Chicago. Fried roti with chicken curry sauce was delicious. The Tofu stir fry was crisp on the outside, smooth and juicy inside. The wonton soup didn’t taste like the typical MSG broth I encounter elsewhere. I can’t wait to go back and try other items.

Malaysian cuisine is one of my favorites. Having visited Malaysia and Singapore several times, I must say the sambal and roti prata were excellent. The spice level could increase a bit for the rendang but the beef was very tender. The coconut pudding was phenomenal and just get right amount of sweetness. I would say the dessert was good for 3-4 people. Overall a great experience.

Menu seemed to have a lot of Americanized Asian dishes so I was skeptical but pleasantly surprised by the nasi lemak nyonya curry chicken. The sauce was delicious and pretty authentic. The side veggies and other accompaniments were just average but we were focused on the main course. It wasn't very busy but service was surprisingly fast for both food and drinks. Note: the lemongrass for the cocktails is a lemongrass syrup so if you don't like sweet drinks, don't get their martini.

Not noticeable by signage and a little confusing when you go in... not very warm seems a bit unfinished. Hot n sour soup was a large portion and the peanut noddle dish was good with veggies only, but I didn’t think it was as good as other reviewers.

A most memorable experience in dining -- our expectation 'at best' was a pan-asian fare, but were pleasantly surprised -- we came to Serai to sample specifically Malaysian cuisine and that we did, thanks to our knowledgeable and exuberant server -- one in our party had an egg allergy and the chef was able to modify his dish without compromising on taste -- our food was beautifully presented, with just the right amount of heat and flavor - heavenly... we will surely be back for more...

Friends visiting from Malaysia and craving comfort food. The Chinese style lemak was almost inedible . The decor badly need updating. The decor looked like an old bar dive converted to a restaurant. Head over to Bingo tea on Argyle street for much cheaper and better Malaysia food or drive way north to Penang fir real authentic Malaysian food. Very disappointed .

We have been to Serai numerous times. The food is great and service is typically always great.
This time however we did not get good service. It was a Sunday afternoon, with the Restaurant half empty...not sure if they were understaffed, but it took forever for them to take our order and then food took a long time to come as well. They forgot to bring us some appetizers we ordered as well. I am not sure what went wrong that day!
But overall the food is great and we will keep going there no matter what.
Cheers!

My coworker and I were so excited to try fusion food. Enjoyed parata with chicken, nasi goreng, 3 chilli chicken and kankun. The food was delicious.
The only downside that spoilt our meal was the rude hostess. We were given a small table, so without thinking much of it, we joined the table next to us. She spoke to us in a loud condescending manner about asking permission before moving the table, and that the restaurant gets more customers on Friday; not to do this again. It was 5.30p and we left at 6.30 p.m. There were two other customers. We did not like her attitude and rude behavior.

I can’t give them a “Wow” rating because it wasn’t. Seemed like most of the dishes are like of other cuisines. Nothing really out of the ordinary but not bad.

I was here a few months back and had the best meal so I returned. This was one of the worst. We were seated at 6:15 and didn’t start eating until after 7:30. In fact, we left after 8:30. The first thing I ordered was soup and I can’t believe hot and sour soup takes an hour to make. Had the drunken noodles which were good and then the sizzling tofu and Hainanese chicken which was terrible. The temp in the chicken was inconsistent with some bites being cold and some being luke warm. Curry vegetables were fine.
I would have told the server but nobody was even coming to our table to see how it was. At the end we did say something and were told the kitchen was busy and did we want pudding.
Skip this place. It’s a Saturday night and I can’t imagine on this random weekend in March that they are more swamped than usual. I wish it was as good as I remember.
We also sat in the second room across from the door so it was freezing cold.

I wouldn't go back here. It's a hole in the wall and the food is questionable. We got their most recommended items - the spicy wontons, lamb rendang and come authentic chicken curry and lamb skewers. The food sounded better than it tasted. Not sure if the meat their source is actually from that animal. The place was unclean and we ditched most of our food. My husband's tummy was upset immediately and I ordered a cocktail, the brought me the wrong one - I corrected my server and 2 minutes later he brought me the same cocktail saying he got the name wrong. This place needs a health check by the city.
