In 1963 Mr. Wong Tai See, a merchant seaman who migrated to Australia from Hong Kong in the 1940's founded The Malaya restaurant. With spices imported from Singapore, The Malaya opened for business challenging the then conservative Australian palate with authentic spicy dishes based on traditional South East Asian cuisine. During the late 1990's the city expanded towards the harbour and in 2001 Lance and Givie relocated The Malaya to 39 Lime Street, King Street Wharf.
