Situated on level 5 in the Sydney CBD Westfield, Sassy's Red caught my attention because of its interesting decor; the style is set in the olden days with a touch of bold and colourful look. Indeed, Sassy's Red is run by the brains behind Chinta Ria at Cockle Bay Wharf. This has boosted my confidence in this sister shop. As described by owner Simon Goh, Sassy's Red is a 70s Malaysian Coffee Shop obsessed with jazz.
Located high up the counter, you can find an array of choices on the menu. Adjacent to the counter, there is a rack filled up with sauce bottles; colourful and eye-catching.
It took me a bit of time to examine the menu as most of the food items looked tempting. I finally picked the 'Chicken Rice'. The chicken was crispy, which was not the normal style that you would normally experience in other Malaysian restaurants. The chicken was tasty and tender inside, however, the portions were relatively small (especially when you're hungry!). So, the food here was priced slightly higher compared to its size.
The place is rather small and packed with diners. As such, don't expect that this is a place where you can enjoy your meal comfortably. It suits you the most when you just like to have a good meal delivered fairly quickly in a nice atmosphere.
