Gather your friends and family to celebrate Matariki. Feast on food and bring prosperity and good fortune into the year ahead.

Delight your tastebuds to a tour of Melaysia! At PappaRich, our delicately crafted dishes never fail to deliver bursts of flavour and colour because we use only an authentic mix of herbs, spices and fresh produce, cooked according to traditional recipes. From the fiery sambal of the Nasi Lemak to the silky smooth Curry Laksa broth, our food reflects the balance and harmony of the different cultures in Malaysia that have combined to give us the distinctive, unique taste of Malaysian cuisine.
