Malaysian Deli, 338 Brockley Road

Crofton Park's new Malaysian deli is now open and has a name - Malaysian Deli. Here's a photo (courtesy of David), which shows you what it's like when it's shut.

Let's hope their food is much better than their signage. :-)

Hope they take the ghetto shutters away.

Wow, a comment about shutters and a critique of the sign. Why can't anybody say anything complimentary ever?


I think that the sign underneath the cheesy, but effective, banner actually looks pretty good, and what's inside the building is much more important. I personally can't wait to try it, it looks like a great addition to the area.

In other Crofton Park shop-front news, Jam Circus has recently gone from being slightly boarded up to totally boarded up. Is it a sign of impending repairs and refurbishment, or the landlord securing his premises?

Discussion on the JC thread suggests it's a sign of life, but I will confirm that asap.

Well there is not a lot of information to go on at the moment and the temporary banner and grimy, graffittied shutter is not a good introduction.


If it is open, can we have a photo of it open? Then, we can get a better idea of how it looks and maybe give more informed opinion.


I hate all the shutters on the shops on the shopping parade. They are ugly and give the impression that the place is war zone.


Thanks very much insurance companies! No wonder shopping streets are in decline.

I'm at work during the day, so hard for me to get a photo of it open before the weekend, but if anyone has one they want to send me, I will gladly post it.

I went in today - the interior was light, simple and charming; about half a dozen tables,and an area at the back selling deli products plus a few crafts (didn't have time to look at that in any detail). I had a delicious sambal and a pot of tea. Main meals (chicken, fish, beef ) with a variety of sauces to choose from, plus rice, salad and a drink: about £6 to eat in. I also got a delicious free cake! The cakes and biscuits all looked good and am looking forward to trying the Malaysian coffee next time.

Don't we all love shops without shutters. But round the corner, there's always one monkey/looser who loves to take a crack shot on windows, seen it all before.

We've had this discussion many times before, but there are shops in Brockley without shutters. In all my years of documenting local business developments, none of these shops has ever had its windows broken.


And if you really are worried about it, there are shutters with holes in, as used by the likes of The Orchard, which comply with Council guidelines and can't easily be daubed with graffiti. There really is no need for these ugly things. However, that has nothing to do with these new tenants.

We stopped by for juice yesterday afternoon and received a really lovely welcome (and free cookie!). Picked up some take away curry for the evening - thoroughly enjoyed it, though we agreed we preferred the chicken to the beef. Welcome to the hood Malaysian Deli!

The rainbow cake is nice but for a slither, it's a overpriced.
