This cheerful eatery on the ground floor of St George's Studios is dishing up genuine Malaysian-Chinese cuisine, plus a range of Asian desserts.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Although Satu Satu appears to be caught between two identities – a restaurant providing both familiar and unfamiliar Malaysian dishes and a ‘dessert café’ – its strength is undeniably in the imaginative and intriguing selection of puds on offer. Featuring sweet treats that profess health benefits, bubble tea, rice and mochi balls – which have a texture and taste that evade easy description, the dessert menu is a clear highlight and a visit for tea and pudding is highly recommended. The main dishes are hearty, if occasionally lacking nuance in the flavouring, and appeal to the more adventurous diner who wants to escape the tropes of East Asian cuisine. The atmosphere, with open kitchen, busy but polite staff and a family friendly warmth, replaces the seriousness of the restaurant experience with something more informal and homely. The idiosyncratic opening hours – it is closed at weekends – should not distract diners from a menu that is certainly distinctive and, in the case of the desserts, one of the most original selections in Glasgow.
