Malaysian
We are built on a concept where multicultural food comes together for a taste of both worlds! Come in to try a fusion of Malaysian and western delights, along with everyone's favourite bubble tea.
Family owned and operated, we serve authentic Malaysian meals and all of the food is home cooked. All of the ingredients are also made at the restaurant, and we buy fresh fruit and vegetables. Our most popular dishes include Roti Canai, Laksa, and Malaysian dried-mixed noodles.
Owned by a Malaysian family, we decided to named it Island Cafe & Bistro to bring the best Malaysian delights to Edmonton, where all the different cultures come together. With this being said, you can expect to find some unique Malaysian delights as well as fusion with Western delights all together at one place.

Amazing food. We have been to Malaysia and this was totally authentic. All condiments even made in house. And an owner/cook that takes pride in her food makes it a joy to eat. And amazing to talk to. We were still eating and texting all of our friends and telling them that they had to eat there. There is absolutely nothing I could give less than a 10/10

Staff is very friendly and always recommends great dishes. I am always leaving satisfy and returning for business. Their food is amazing and it is rare to find places for a nice home cooked type of meal.

The owners are really friendly and aim to make your visit/meal as pleasant as can be. The food is very authentic and there is a good range of non spicy to spicy food. Good for large groups and the food is fresh and tasty. I would definitely go back. There is something for everyone here. The roti and Nasi Lemak is my favourite!

A little mom and pop Malaysian restaurant tucked in a strip mall on the west side of Edmonton. Very quiet and I would rate it a hidden gem. Drive by and miss it.

Based on comments tried the spicy dumping soup. Sort of a cross between Japanese with the dumplings and Malaysian with the Curry soup. Flavours were balanced, and the spice level was just about perfect. The owner even asked how spicy I liked, which I left in his hands. Came out perfect.

Also had the Roti special at the suggestion of the owner. Another good blend of spices. Curry was the same base as the soup, roti was tender and slightly crispy. Spring rolls were flavoursome. The Malaysian salad was a disappointment, was really only cucumber and pineapple, but made a nice addition to the chicken and roti.

Prices are reasonable, will definitely be checking it out again for other entrees.

Wonderful tasting Malaysian food. Dumpling soup is excellent, we ordered another to take home. Roti special is fantastic. And for dessert, Milles Crepes with Kaya jam...hope I got that right! 32 layers of crepes and filling...it was heavenly. Nice chatting with the owners, learned a little about Malaysian culture and history. Will definitely go back to try different items and learn more!
