Great Flavours and cheap! - Edit

Saw the reviews on here saying don't bother go next store, so we went to the one next to and it was more pricey and received small dishes. The next day we came back here and tried this food. It was cheap, filling, flavourful, and the staff was so friendly. definitely recommend coming here. I had the masala dosai, it was very nice.

Pros: Great flavours, friendly staff, very cheap

Cons: none

authentic menu for two - Edit

Vegetarian restaurant with extensive menu. Not much in the way of explanation from the rather brusque waiter however the banana leaf meal is the stand out item. Three different served with rice, dahl and two dips with papadums. They will provide a spoon but everyone else, predominantly Indian customers, eat with their fingers. Quick, tasty and at 6:50 a bargain.

Cheap and tasty food - Edit

I really liked the atmosphere of this small restaurant. The waiter was quite in a hurry to make me order something. I took a masala dosai (only 2.5RM) and an indian tea (2.5RM also). There is no cutlery at all, but it is a real pleasure to eat using the hand, Indian-style. The price was really cheap, but the dosai very tasty. I highly recommend it, even if it's sometimes uncomfortable to be a woman alone when the staff is not used to it.

Pros: Very cheap, Tasty food, Fast service

Cons: Staff quite cold

Great banana leaf meal - Edit

Busy, cheap and cheerful cafe. Everyone seems to get the banana leaf meal here - 3 curries and dhal with rice and papadums, served on a banana leaf. The workers took a while to serve me and looked at me with scepticism when I explained I wanted vegan ('no cheese, no butter, no milk'). But they decided I could have the banana leaf meal - and all the curries did seem to be vegan and were delicious. Everyone eats with their hands, but you can get a spoon if you need one. It was filling and only cost RM 8 I think. A great experience!

Pros: Fun experience, Tasty, Inexpensive

Cons: Need more clarity on vegan options

Good reliable veg indian at good prices - Edit

This place is on a busy street with at least 2 other veg Indian restaurants. The other is Sangeethas which is more upmarket and has a more extensive menu but is as a result more expensive. Lakshmi Vilas might not look as fancy but the food is good, service is friendly and fast and the food is great value (significantly cheaper than Sangeethas) The menu (on the wall in english) is limited to banana leaf thalis, breads, dosas and other South Indian dishes (which isnt really that limited) plus all the usual drinks and sweets. AC section upstairs open at lunch time. Busy, good atmosphere. They dont automatically give you cutlery which we should take as a compliment so if you cant hack eating rice with your right hand you will have to ask for a spoon. Recommended

Pros: Good price, quick friendly service, good food
