We were seated at the booth before a waiter instructed us that we write our menu items on a slip of paper which the waiter will collect once we press a button on the table. I thought this would be limiting our diner-waiter interaction but our waiter was very friendly and patient nonetheless. I ordered the Milk Tea because I love the flavour and froth of Malaysian milk tea. It was the perfect sweetness, the froth was lickable and definitely did not disappoint which they probably knew because I ordered another one halfway through dinner. 10/10 !

My boyfriend ordered the Barley drink with Grass Jelly which he really enjoyed but it's not my cup of tea (pardon the pun).
Barley $4: Apparently delicious
For our mains we ordered the Char Kway Teow which came to our table only 3-5 minutes after we ordered. The prawn was juicy and mildly spicy and a great texture. There was the classic smokey flavour which my boyfriend informs me is the "Wok flavour". The noodles were not dry and the serving was quite big. 7/10

We also ordered Red Chicken and Sambal Prawns which came with Pappadum and rice, I really liked this dish because the prawns and chicken were mildly spicy and had a touch of sweetness. The sauce from the chicken was delicious with the pappadum which was wonderfully crispy. This dish is great value! 8/10

Overall, my experience at Pappa Rich was fantastic and we walked out feeling very full.I would definitely return and might even take my family to the Chatswood one in Sydney.
