Any Remotely Good Malaysian Food Around Here?

I just got back from Kuala Lumpur (due to circumstances, I wasn't able to be as food adventurous as I would've liked, but I did try my best) and was wondering if there are any decent renditions around here for a teh tarik, char kway teow, roti canai or similar if the urge struck?
I know near me the Asian Wok & Grill (the former China Chef Wok & Grill - they changed the name while I was gone) has some dishes from the area, and I did a little research and some mentions of places like Kopitiam, Layang Layang, Lime Tree, and Old Town Cafe. Any insights into the latter places or any others that I didn't mention?
The best I've had overall that's still in business is Kopitiam in Lafayette, though I prefer the roti canai, chow kway teo, curry mee, and Hainan chicken at Singapore-Malaysian in SF.
I haven't been to the South Bay places, so can't compare.

We live about 10 minutes from Layang Layang and go frequently. Excellent Myalaysian food in a casual setting. Can get crowded on the weekends for dinner, as it is not a big place. Great savory food as well as great desserts. Great Roti Canai!
You might want to try Banana Leaf in Milpitas. I think their food is really good. I am not an expert on Malaysian food.
