First Review by Loudan1979

Good Idli - Edit

After sending back a semi-cooked utthapam (dough was raw in the centre), we returned the following day only to be handed a menu with a hiked price range from the previous day. Such a shame, as this place - and its competition next door - are the only budget vegetarian Indian eateries in the area (the two across the road, Sangeetha and Saravana Bavan, offer similar dishes at incredibly inflated prices).

Pros: good tucker, cheap

Cons: chef cannot cook utthapam, special 'foreigner menu'

Did I missing something? - Edit

Reading these reviews had me wonder if I went to the same restaurant. I came here for lunch and got a thali for RM 7. It had rice, various curries, and was served on a banana leaf fitted into a regular thali plate. Something new and different for me. However, the food was underwhelming. Overall taste was okay, but the curries were too watery for my liking. I preferred my sambar on the thicker side; here it had the consistency of a clear soup. Also, the rice was cold. Everything else was lukewarm. Well, at least it was cheap and "unlimited" if you care for more. Even the samosa I grabbed on the way out was just meh.

Staff hardly spoke English. Service was minimal. I'd say try some place else...

Pros: cheap

Cons: food

Tasty food - Edit

Decided to try another Indian restaurant on this street since the first one we tried was such a disappointment (the only vegetarian one across the street. Too expensive compared to all the other places on the street)

Because we didn't really know what all the dishes were, we asked the server what he recommends for vegan options. We told him no milk, butter, cheese or cream. He suggested the vegetable kurma combo which came with naan. It was full of flavour. Also the price wasn't bad either (RM9)

Good Indian restaurant - Edit

A nice, inexpensive cafe, with a wider menu than Lakshmi Vilas next door. I had rice with a dhal and aloo gobi. It was pretty good, and cost around RM 10 I think. The workers were happy to direct me to which dishes I could eat as a vegan. (This place is good, but in my opinion, the best vego place on this street is Sangeetha - 20 metres further along.)

Pros: Tasty, Variety, Inexpensive

Cons: Need more clarity on vegan options

Great Indian vegetarian restaurant - Edit

I have been here twice now and really enjoyed it both times. The first time I had a set "unlimited" lunch which I think meant unlimited rice as they bought more round half way through. It was over 10 very small dishes which were very nice (some were a little strange!). I went again in the evening and had a paneer biryani which was delicious!

Pros: Tasty food, Reasonable price

Cons: Server rushed us slightly to choose

Good, very chep Indian cuisine - Edit

For a slap up Indian meal in Kuala Lumpar, this is the place. Rammed with Indian Malaysians (always a good sign) the metre long dosas come particularly recommended. Sure, we aren't in a world of gourmet neccessarily here, but at these prices, who's complaining? And don't get me wrong, it is very good. Service is friendly, if the English isn't great, and a decent Indian veggie style in KL makes a nice change, even if this is the world of veggie gourmet delights.

Pros: Price, Location

Delicious! - Edit

My omnivore friend who lives in KL said this was the best veggie Indian food in town, and I definitely was not disappointed. I went in for lunch and got a thali set (including an awesome beet dish, which I have never seen at an Indian restaurant) and a mango lassi for RM9. My one qualm with this place is that they were basically out of everything on the entire menu, so you kind of have to let them choose for you. Not really sure the point of having a menu if you don't serve anything on it. There is also a branch at the Batu Caves, and when we sat down the waiter was like "we are out of everything except rice." Um, ok.

Pros: amazing food, cheap

Cons: limited availability of menu items, not-that-great service

First rate Indian Cuisine - Edit

This place was absolutely delicious. We had three dishes, and they were all excellent. The spicing was some of the best we've ever tasted, as each dish had a unique wonderful flavour. We enjoyed the Aloo Gobi and a wonderful rice dish as well. I can't remember the vegetable dish we had, however. The only qualm about this place is that they are not very well versed in "vegan". I kept insisting on "no ghee" and "no milk" (no risk with eggs given the dishes I was having), and he kept suggesting things like Mango Lassis and Naan bread that I knew from past experience had yogurt and milk. Once we sorted that out however, we enjoyed our three Ghee free dishes and some lovely hot Chappati. The food here was as good as any Indian I've ever had, and large portions make this incredible value. We had three dishes, an appetizer, two drinks, three Chappatis and a dessert for 26RM, the equivalent of around 6 Euros. A must visit if you are in KL.

Pros: huge portions, good value, delicious

Cons: watch out for milk!

fantastic - Edit

went for evening meal here, and was gobsmacked. the food was out of this world, with a fantastic menu, featuring a large selection of north and south indian dishes. the waiter was great, when my other half ordered, he asked if she liked her food hot as it was a spicy dish. we both went north indian, although the dosa's around looked very tasty. we has some pakora to start which was great, and both main dishes were really tasty, and very fresh. it's a classic, as always the fact the palce was full of indian people eating gives you confidence. the one thing i would note is that the breads, if you don't get one, you will regret it. the best nan i have had. go go go.

Pros: magic curry, magic bread, magic staff.\

Pushy Pushy Pushy - Edit

ok, the food is pretty good, the cashewnut curry is amazing BUT the service... i dont know where to start..... Upon sitting down we were accosted (I dont use this term lightly) by our waiter who, i assume, had somehow known we were coming and had already chose our meal for us. He INSISTED that he pick out or food... really insisted. When I got up the guts to tell him i wanted a dosa rather than the paneer naan (not a paneer fan) he refused at first. Yes, thats right refused to serve it to me. After arguing with him, he told me it was a bad combination (I am happy to say that it wasnt at all) with our curries (that he chose) and reluctantly changed my order. When our dishes came he stood scowling at our table and watched me take my first few bites. A bit intimidating to say the least. but the food was good. If you happen by this establishment and Ragu is your waiter, turn and run, otherwise give it a chance!

Pros: good food

Cons: worst service Ive ever had

Amazing!!!!! - Edit

Went for lunch here twice and were very very impressed with both the service and the food. This is very different to a western curry house as you are given about 10 different dishs on a large banana leaf (within a dish) The flavours are amazing and all compliment each other. On our second vist the hospitality was even more amazing and we were given an absolute feast! The staff were preparing special dishs for us and explaining how to eat them and how they were prepared etc. The value is very good and we would recommend going for a lunch time special, where you can choose from about 8 different options, all prepared the tradition Indian way. We paid 2 pound for both our meals, including rice, curry, naan, popadoms and great service. You will not be disappointed! The restaurant is also very clean and always busy, don't be put off by the volume of locals eating in there.....

Pros: Great Food, Amazing Service, Clean

Cons: None
