Chinta Ria....mood for love.... is the enticing name given to the Chinta Ria restaurant conveniently located in the level 6 restaurant level of Westfields Sydney. It serves a classy version of some classic Malaysian cuisine, with impeccable service, and dim ambient lighting, and the decor of a mix between an Asian temple and a olden day Chinese restaurant, it actually is a pretty good place for a romantic date ;)
Rocking up early on a Friday night is always a decent decision as the restaurant itself isn't overly large, especially if you don't have a reservation. We managed to squeeze into a table for two at around 6pm and the place was already pretty full.
We perused the menu and picked out a couple of dishes that sounded tempting.
$3.50 - Chicken rice and Coconut rice - years and years ago I went to the Chinta Ria restaurant that used to be in Darling harbour. I remember back then their coconut rice was super fragrant and delicious. I tried it again this time along with the chicken rice. Surprisingly, whilst the coconut rice was still quite fragrant and light, I found myself preferring the more flavoursome chicken rice instead. My taste preferences must be changing as I get older.
