My experience with this restaurant is very different from my partner's. I had the tandoori chicken, it came fast and was amazing, I wish I had ordered two. My partner ordered banana leaf rice, and they told her they didn't have it, which was okay, we got something else, but the people beside us came after us (like ten minutes)... More

We ate dinner at Kumar's but wished we had not. The food was terrible. We had one of the curries and one of the "kurmas", which didn't taste of anything and had the color of vomit. The service was bad, the waiters mainly joked around. Do not eat here if you like Indian food because it will ruin it for... More

Being from the UK with great Indian Restos PLUS having spent 4 months in India trust me - the food here is very good. The pushy (and friendly!) guys who run it have banter with all who pass on the main st. Ate here most days in the 2 weeks we spent in TR. Had several Tandoori sets (RM9) with... More

We will have to agree with Kassim, our host of our B&B; that this is one of the better Indian Restaurants in Tanah Rata. The choice of food is amazing; as the friendly staff of the restaurant will be sure that you are well taken care of!

Had late dinner with my family at Kumar's - coz my daughter couldn't take the spices from Singh Chapatti (which the food was pretty decent by the way). We didn't know what to expect, so we decided to NOT put a high expectation on the food in Kumar's. We ordered Chicken Tandoori, a plate of PLAIN rice, Maggie Goreng and... More

Had a wonderful moment having our dinner meal here on our day 2 of visit to Cameron highland. Staffs are friendly, Meal portions are big and the taste of the food is exceptionally quality. This is our 2nd time of visit, 1st was somewhere in 2011. For anyone who wished to have an authentic and fine indian spice food, this... More

You need to go and talk to the guy who's cooking in front or who just calls out to you while you're passing. we didnt like the ready-made veggies so we told him what we wanted and he made it fresh for us. he also made us maggie goreng with lots of veggies - really good stuff. the highlight was...

We were at Kumar's for lunch. To begin with, this eatery looked dirty and greasy and the ironic part that we were there was due to the hyped up reviews in Trip visor. Thank you very much. We had a South Indian banana leaf rice set that consist 2 hard boiled egg masala, 1 small plate of chicken masala, 4... More

Roti canai was a no no. Same for the mee hoon and nasi lemak bungkus. Kopi the simplest of drinks was a failure.
