The Old Street Kobiteh restaurant was inspired by Malaysia‘s streetscape and the traditional 1920s Malaysian coffee shops called “kopitiam”. Kopi is the Malay term for coffee, and tiam is the Hokkien world for shop. A kopitaiam is an unique Malaysian dining experience that reflects the country’s multi-ethnic society, serving dished from different ethnicities so that people from different background can dine together.

The main visual characteristic of the restaurant is the 37foot long ding table. It is comprise of 30 modular units, each featuring a different tile pattern from the Malaysian streetscape. Other elements such as the neon signs, vintage vintage plates and hand drawn menus contribute to the overall ambience. Designed by Nelson Chow
