Thosai & Roti Canai

During my stay at Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands, at the end of March 2015, I had breakfast at Kumar's. It is an Indian restaurant serving local delights. Superb thosai and roti canai made fresh from the pan complimented with the curry chicken ordered,made the breakfast heavenly. The brew instant... read more

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.

We had been told by our host to stop by Kumar's as we had mentioned that we liked Indian food. We went for lunch but were quite disappointed with the food. The cheery guy with the baseball cap sat us down and was nice enough to answer any questions we had but his suggestion of the naan combo was pretty... More

Grubby little restaurant on the main strip in Tanah Rata. They have a Tandoori oven outside and a buffet style stall with lots of oily curries on offer. The best thing about this place is the Tandoori Combo - a huge piece of tandoori chicken with small bowl of rice, chapati, raita, dahl and spicy curry sauce for 9RM! The... More

To start with the positives, the location is excellent, on the main strip of restaurants in Tanah Rata. The service is prompt but lacking any warmth and the onion parata's (roti's) were actually pretty good. However, our curries were not very good at all, in truth. The mutton curry that I had was ok but the meat was really poor... More
