I think Masak isn't too ecstatic about Groupon holders. My friend and walked in for dinner after being unable to book a reservation. The place was pretty crowded. We left our number for the waitress, and 20 mins later she called us once 2 spots at the bar opened up. She was nice about it, yet she seemed reluctant to take us in. The bartender was nice, but I noticed that the place was only half-full. What happened to being fully booked for dinner? There were 2 empty tables that our waitress said were reserved. We dined there for 2 hrs, and they were still empty. The food was good, but small portions. I wonder if since we paid a Groupon that means we don't garner full service.

The dessert price is overpriced. I ordered fried banana, and expected the fried banana would be like regular banana or even half size of regular banana, but it came out the size of fried banana was similar to my index finger, and it only has two pcs with two scoops of ice cream. Will never order dessert from this place.

Porgy is inexpensive. All they did was grill or fry and they can't serve this with FREE bowl of rice? Even just a small one! I find the place a bit pricey and not authentic Malaysian or Singaporean. The squid tasted closer to an Italian seafood dish lacking pasta. (This too should have been served with even just half a bowl of FREE RICE).

The food was good, but the combination of flavors was not as complex as I would expect for the price.

Qui Pie Tee was fabulous. Restaurant should consider creating a larger appetizer platter of those.

A slightly larger wine list would enhance wine and food pairing options.

Everything was just perfect, how you are seated, the food and the ambiance small but really nice, a little tight if four , considering it's an intimate place.

From Our Editors

Larry Reutens likes to play with his food. That's why the chef, who honed his craft at Alias, Aquavit, and Tasting Room, named his East Village restaurant Masak, a reference to the Malaysian term for play at cooking. He fashions local and seasonal ingredients into authentic Singaporean recipes as well as his own eclectic creations. "Some of the best dishes are bastardized (or maybe I should say bistro-ized) versions of standard Malaysian fare," said Village Voice food writer Robert Sietsema. Among these are a fish curry made with eggplant and american red snapper and burgers topped with ketjap—Indonesian-style ketchup—and turmeric-infused pickles. Reutens has also garnered praise for his quih pie tee, fried rice-paper cups filled with ingredients such as hen of the woods mushrooms or strawberries and foie gras.

Hidden behind a post-office substation, Masak recalls Singapore's opulent black-and-white houses, originally built by British colonists to house Beatles cover bands while on tour. Exposed brick and wooden lattices line its interior, and wooden benches create a tropical ambiance perfect for enjoying a cocktail, such as the Masak Airline, a blend of rum and Cointreau with kaffir lime.
