Nyonya cuisine is a fusion of Malaysian, Chinese, and Indonesian foods offering a tasty combination of flavours that these nations have to offer. Our signature Garlic Coconut Paste provides the delicious base notes for pan-frying the chicken before adding our complex Nyonya Paste. Galangal, chilli, coriander and kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass are but few of th ingredients that are pounded together to create the paste, adding many levels of flavour to this dish. Our favourite chilli, coriander and coconut flake garnish tops this dish off with a little sweetness and heat.

Luke - Mar 19, 2019

Surprisingly good, easily the best curry Simply Cook do.

David - Mar 19, 2019

Wow really really tasty. One of the best ones yet. I don’t this with 2 chicken breast rather than thighs, if you do the same make sure you use 3.

Prefer Thai green curry. It was tasty but just not a combo of ingredients I enjoyed.

Terence - Mar 11, 2019

I love this fish will buy again

Serena - Mar 11, 2019

Really yummy! Used mangetout instead of green beens and also added some creme fraiche to the sauce as a little watery for my liking. Delicious!

Maria - Mar 10, 2019

Geraldine - Mar 06, 2019

One of my favourites

Dani - Mar 05, 2019

Was amazing!

Ruth - Mar 05, 2019

Not the best curry I’ve had but tasted very fresh just not to my taste. I added frozen green beans and baby corn to make 3 generous servings. I found I needed to add a tablespoon of flour to thicken the sauce as like someone else said the sauce is quite watery otherwise.

Vicki - Mar 05, 2019

Was quite nice but the sauce was far too thin and didn’t feel substantial. Tasted ok tho, maybe needs a little bit more of a kick

Vikki - Mar 04, 2019
