It was just nice for me, with the rich tea flavor plus elevated condensed milk. Prices are fairly... read more

Everytime we passed by tanah rata, we notice a lot of tourist dining at Kumar's. Out of sheer curiosity, we decided to give it a try. I guess it was just bad judgement... the restaurant was filthy. It wasn't difficult to spot the lack of hygiene priority. From the food bits on the floor to the dirty tables, it is... More

We went twice to this place and tasted almosted 10 different dishes. Everything was very good. The dishes are cheap 3-12 RM. Highly recommended!

We both had a rough night after having dinner there. Moreover they tried to screw us on the bill. 2 reasons why we won't go back there.

Its a pre-prepared food store...and tastes just like it. Left half. I went in and nobody bothered to give me the menu. Better local places to eat at this price

We came here on the back of other reviews and left a bit disappointed. Service was slow, we waited about 10 minutes then went up to ask for a menu. Most of the dishes on the menu were not available. Instead, we were directed to the cold buffet style food near the front of the restaurant. The food was then... More

The fried dishes seems to be prepared way too early. Taste wise not worth the price. The next door restaurant provide better service for cheaper price.

We have been coming here for more than 25 years and it is largely unchanged - good food, friendly service and reasonable prices. A warm haven on a cold night, but a warm welcome at any time

had the Tandoori Naan combo and well worth the 9RM, Plain Naan, Tandoori chicken, salad, curry sauce, mint sauce, dhal curry and rice. Enough to feed a big man. Lots of different things to try. Extremely friendly owner and staff very helpful.

South Indian in main street, good value but nothing exceptional. Serves Tiger, a lot of restaurants don't have a license.
