This venue blends Southeast Asian cuisine with an emphasis on Malaysian flavors. The restaurant fills up quickly during the lunch and dinner rush. Dishes are fairly authentic and service, while spotty, seems sincere. Informal dining is the rule here--we recommend it for a quick bite.
Most authentic Malaysian cuisine in Shanghai !!! Wide choice of Malaysian and Singaporean food. Laksa, Bah Kut Teh, Fried Kuay Teow, Indian Curry, Chili Crab,......and delicious drinks like the famous Malaysian coffee "Kopi-O"and Teh Tarik. Outside catering is available.

Yes we had moved to other location because of renovation. But it still will be at Parkson Huai Lu 8floor just right opposite where previous space was selling promotion items. For your information on Sept 13th 2012 will start back operation.
Seems not there anymore, moved to other location ?
Value for money, decent Malaysian food - sometimes hit and miss but overall OK. Have definitely improved from 3 years ago - in consistency and general standard. Still not like home but we're in Shanghai :) Hokkien Prawn Noodles and Curries are OK.
i remembered eating there like barbarians. my capoeira group was hungrryy, and the service was fast and efficient. the food kept on coming and we kept on eating! it was a satisfying meal, with a bill of about 70rmb/head. this is the place to go if you're not necessarily aiming for a fancy elegant restaurant with high standards, but more so if you're chasing the taste of some southeast asia food. my favorite is the fried white carrot cake n' grilled fish.
Food is ok. Curry was a little diluted. Chendol is not authentic. Worst service for an Asian restaurant -- maybe because it is a male waiters -- all of them are lazy and slow.
Hidden away on the 8th floor of Parkson mall, the large restaurant is surprisingly packed with diners. Owners aside, the service staff that handled our orders/requests speak only Mandarin, so whilst they have an English menu, be wary if you want to communicate anything else to them short of pointing to the menu to order your dishes.
I particularly enjoyed their **chicken curry**, which had large tender chunks of chicken in a creamy spicy curry sauce. Delicious with some **roti chanai/prata** dunked in - mmmm! I'm very keen to go back to try their Hainanese Chicken Rice and Laksa.
We enjoyed the majority of the dishes. And given the very reasonable prices, I think Food Fusion is one of the top SG/MY restaurants here in Shanghai, alongside Orchard CRC which we also like.
I ordered Food Fusion delivery for lunch, 'cos I felt I hadn't gotten my food fix yet ;) The 2 **curry puffs** were not amazing. The filling was tasty but the outside was soft and very dry. That said, perhaps it's because they were delivered but I still wouldn't order them at the restaurant.
I also had the **Bee hoon** (large portion) which is dry vermicelli noodles. There's not a whole lot of meat in there, just some teeny slivers of pork, but they do add in quite a lot of shredded cabbage. It's incredibly tasty and really hit the spot. However, despite ordering the "large" portion I thought it was kind of small... basically I ate the 2 curry puffs and the large portion of noodles for lunch, when I'd assumed it could be split over 2 lunches. Still, good value and I liked it :)

I must say that the place is very well designed. Much effort has been put into the designing. You enter the place with the lights well dimed and an artificial stream flowing in the middle of the restuarant. You can really see how the owners are trying to recreate the tropical feel of South-east Asia.
The staffs are quite well trained. Although the locals have much trouble understanding english, there were quite a few number of Singaporean Interns there which made my life so easier.
Ok, I've been to Malaysia and Singapore many times. The food there is really fantastic. Of course, the meals that they make are just replications of the original... I can see that they are probably trying to sell the South-East Asian Brand. Just about if not at most just abit above average. For that price tag, could have gotten something better elsewhere.
Just check it out if you want to try some Malaysian cuisine. Worth checking out again once in awhile though.
Fantastic Malaysian food..one of the best Southeast Asian food that I have eaten in Shanghai.
The decor and the staff uniform brings out the Southeast Asian style.
The food are very tasty and I especially recommend the roti canai, bak kut teh, hokkien prawn mee, kang kung and the beef rendang.
The service is also wonderful, a number of the staff are from Singapore and they speak wonderful English, so we didn't have much of a communication problem.
An authentic Southeast Asian food restaurant and recommend all Southeast Asian food lovers to come here.

Felt an urge for some nourishing Bak Kut Teh and headed straight to Fusion. Was once again fully satisfied. The Hainanese Chicken rice was equally deligtful. The owner promised a new winter menu -- can't wait!
Tried their new restaurant at Parkson Huaihai Road -- love the ambience! The restaurant owner must really like orchids for there are over 45 varieties on display in their vertical garden!
The food quality improved significantly. The Penang Laksa and Hokkien Prawn Mee are to die for. Complement your meal with an iced teh tarik and you are in heaven. Jean Vandebroek
Food is just ok. But for price they charge ought to do much better. I don't get it, why so expensive? cause of little competition. May be that's why I would still go back, but only for now until I find a better place. What really make me angry is the prices for drinks, what are they thinking??? Hope the owner will do something about it soon.
Second Bite | **Southeast Feast**
When CW online users told us the food at this Malaysian eatery had improved recently, we eagerly went back for another try. The rojak buah (¥20), an appetizer
comprised of large pieces of deep fried
tofu and youtiao, contrasted with a mix of pineapple and raw cucumber.
Unfortunately, the mediocre taste couldn’t keep up with the refreshing texture. Next was the roti canai with potato curry sauce (¥20), served with roti bread strips for dipping. The bread was crisp and fresh, and the curry deliciously spicy and rich.
The bah kut teh (¥32, small) is a sharply
tangy and rich home-style soup that surprised us with delectable large chunks of tender, chewy pork. This soup sported pork ribs so tender, you would never expect
to find them in a soup. We’re converted–
Food Fusion has a lot to offer now that they’ve combined great value, fast service and tasty food. **Liao Jiachang**
I have to advice your food writers to do a bit of research before reviewing a restaurant and/or cuisine that they know nothing about.
Mr Harsar - Fusion's 'Carrot Cake' does not actually contain any carrots, nor should it. It's actually made out of daikon, and the only reason that the dish is called 'carrot cake' is due to the fact that the daikon somewhat resembles a carrot.
The food at Fusion is pretty authentic and every time we eat there, we leave with our stomachs full and completely satisfied. Sure, they get mixed up with our orders sometimes...but the language barrier is a common excuse as with all other restaurants here. We don't mind it. Why? Because the food is great.
Being Malaysian, and having tried practically all the Malaysian restaurants in town, my friends and I think Food Fusion offers the most authentic Malaysian fare by far. There were some issues with the tastes when they first opened, but they have improved tremendously. As of Feb 09, everything we've tried makes us feel like we're back in Malaysia. I guess having a cook from Penang (an island in Malaysia known for it's food) really makes a difference.
To the person who mentioned that the roti prata is not the fresh variety, I have no idea what he or she meant. The roti banana and roti planta is to yummy...
I agree with some reviewers that the bosses/managers are not that warm. The service staff are fine though.
I have to say that the restaurant has a strange name though, since their food is not 'fusion' at all.
hi i was back to fusion again but this time i was with few of my local friends which they have never tried the South East Asia food before, so with my highly recommandation finally they wanna to give themselves a try hahaha and of course, i was the one to make the foods ordered. 6 of us and we eat quite a lot of dishes and each of us only paid 75yuan with so much foods. So they are very happy with the curry chicken, bah kut teh, roti canai, satay chicken and etc. Besides, they also like the environment and decoration of the shop coz they felt it is very special even though is quite smoky inside but they think is normal hahaha which is true in a way. They also like the boss, but this time is a french guy that can speak quite good mandarin to speak to us(not to take order) they thought he is quite a nice boss hahaha so maybe next time if happens any of you are going, maybe you can ask this french boss to serve you guys :)
The food is fantastic. Been away from home but still could get what I want. The curry chicken is perfect. I tried the Hokkien Char- Fried Prawn Noodle - marvelous.
Almost the same name commented something else. About the service, I'm fine with it. I don't need the boss to serve but as long my food and necessity is taken care, I'll like in Penang. The Kopi Peng - Ice Coffee and Teh Tarik is good too even done by a Chinese guy? They actually came out with quite a new choices. We also tried the Crab with corn n cheese, they are new in town. The taste is fabulous - sweetness of the corn, authentic sour and little taste of Asian Spice and finished with a cheesy taste. What a recipe!!
Food is reasonably good (e.g. teh tarik, chicken curry) and price is pretty standard. But the attitude of staff is not great; in particular the practice of greeting and providing good customer service only to "foreigner" customers i.e. non-Chinese or their friends :( It was not only the Chinese-enabled laowai frenchman who had this approach, even the non-waiting staff (presume floor manager or supervisor) seemed to take this approach; prefering to sit behind his laptop rather than attending to the other customers in the shop. And it wasn't like the restaurant was spilling over with hungry guests!
ps : the roti prata is clearly not the fresh variety you will find in the streets of KL or even in Singapore but it (the prata) is saved by the chicken curry.
i would like to recommand those who love Malaysia foods to this Fusion Restaurant which i found the foods are amazing and delicious, the atmosphere is very good as well expecially the boss named Marco, he is so friendly, fit & cute hahaha i highly recommand the Hokkien Mee, Roti Planta and Ice Kacang and i would definately go and try out the mini hotpot this weekend

Middle of the Road This restaurant makes a sincere but inconsistent attempt at Malaysian cuisine. After seating ourselves and requesting a menu, we started with a fried carrot cake (RMB28). Bits of carrot, turnip and scallion were mixed into an egg batter and fried. The saltiness did not overpower the delicate flavor of the radish and carrot and the egg provided depth to an otherwise light dish. The Hokkien Mee (RMB28) however was disappointing--prawns and noodles in a soy-based sauce were bland and nondescript. The Malaysian chicken curry (RMB48) was similar to a Thai curry and while the broth was fragrant and well balanced, the chicken had spent too much time simmering and the potatoes, not enough. The roti (RMB18) was noteworthy, but typical. There are still some kinds to work out so for now, we'd suggest it's better for a quick lunch than a full meal. Bryan Harsar
