Our Story

Sabar Menanti is a well-loved Malay restaurant serving authentic Minangkabau (from West Sumatra, Indonesia) dishes. The restaurant is aptly named Sabar Menanti, for in English it means “wait patiently”, which one has to do as the queue to get to the food in this restaurant is known to be very long. Sabar Menanti was opened in the nasi padang belt of the famous Kandahar Street in Kampong Glam over 57 years ago. Since then, the running of the restaurant has been passed on from its original owner from Sumatra, Haji Marlian, to his children. Branches of the restaurant sprang up around Kandahar Street.

Our Reviews

"Food is awesome, good variety for full meal, or quick snack. Convenient parking just outside the shop. Good for quiet breakfast, before stepping into the daily storm called the office. Or life."
