Customer Reviews


"I have been buying from Sam since she started baking in London. Now that she's here, I don't have to pay for shipping anymore!! I've bought many different kinds of cookies and my friends and family favorites are the Almond London and pineapple tarts. Sam's savory meals reminded me of home cooked meals. This is a good way to introduce my husband to true Malaysian home cooking without going to Malaysia!" - Min Li Fu, LA

"The strawberry birthday cake you made me was the best strawberry cake I've ever had! Tasted better than my favorite strawberry cupcakes at Sprinkles." - Brandee Tucker, LA

"I like trying different cuisines. I have tried Malaysian food before but Sam Tan Kitchen's dishes are awesome. Her Nasi Lemak is amazing. Crispy chicken with the hot chilly sauce is great and comes with ample portions. Also, recommend her Curry Puffs. Once you finish one piece of it, your fingers are already to the second one. First bite, you taste the crunchiness while there's a good balance of the creamy potatoes and right amount of spiciness. Highly recommend!"- David Kim, LA

"The Chinese New Year cookies are super yummy! What a taste of home - brings back great CNY memories. Samantha is a great baker. The jam tarts melt in the mouth!" - Soh Leong, San Diego

"Sam Tan’s Kitchen is my go-to place as she always works with me to cater to my needs. On film sets, her high quality food is always loved by the crew as she prepares great options to suit everyone's needs and preferences, while making sure the dishes are varied and never boring. I thought I took a risk when I hired Sam to cater a bridal shower, but she surely delivered beautiful and delicious food that we all marveled over." - Ri Versteegh, LA

"Her bakkwa, pineapple tarts and peanut cookies are mouth-watering, better quality than what we get back home!" - Ruth Liew, New Hampshire

"Sam Tan Kitchen's Nasi Lemak is by far one of the best I've ever tasted - reminding me so much of home! Best part about it is the fried chicken, which is done the same crunchy way you'd get at a "hole-in-the-wall" street stall back home. You can't find that kinda stuff in LA - well, until now at Sam Tan's Kitchen! Total epic experience. Go try it for yourself!" - Rendra Zawawi, LA

"The banana kueh tasted just like how my grandma made it! Almost couldn't believe I'd get to eat this in America. Sambal is delicious! And spicy enough too, not some genteel watered down thing to cater to the uninitiated." - Jaira Koh, LA

"Quite possibly the best damn thing I've ever tasted" (Oreo Cheese Truffles) - Keaton Herzer, LA

"The shortbread cookies were perfect dense buttery goodness! I got the heart shapes and won major points on valentine's day. Thanks Sam! Coconut crepes were a yummy treat. Adorable little bundles with a rich nutty caramelized coconut filling. Perfect finger food that went great with coffee." - Chris Chandler, LA 

"Sam is a great cook! She is passionate and working with her has always been a treat. The food is cooked to perfection and her service is phenomenal. Highly recommendable for any production or events." - Shammika Tomar, LA

"My first order was the Chinese New Year tarts and they were buttery morsels of delight, then I ordered a few karipaps (curry puffs) for no special occasion, but to pig out and the flaky pastry was so crispy and went so well with the hearty filling of light curried potatoes. I also had a surprise for my birthday, when my friend ordered a beautiful Victoria Sponge cake that was absolutely mouth-watering and melt in your mouth delicious!" - Yani Asari-Vojka, NYC

"This is the best kaya I ever had. I even like it better than any one in the Malaysia market. Tastes so darn good that you ll order it again and again." - Yong Fang, Indiana

"I love Hainan chicken and Sam's is top notch! Definitely place an order next time she makes one of these." - Kai, LA

"I don't know how Sam does it but the noodles (Bihun Goreng) were so light and not greasy. They were also not too salty and so satisfying." - Mim, LA
