Go In the Afternoon

Kumar's was recommended to us by our hotel, who told us we should go between 11am - 2pm (unless you want tandoor) because that's when their curries are the freshest. It's sort of the cafeteria/buffet style of dining we saw a lot of in Malaysia, but the food was very good. We went for lunch and got... read more

I eat Indian food very often and enjoy it. I can't say the same about Kumar's. The place is a bit run down. The service was average. The tandoori chicken was very dry and spicy. The naan were good. The chana masala (chick peas in masala sauce) were the highlight of our dinner. We had to remind them about the... More

Very nice and affordable Indian place right along the main street of Tanah Rata. Don't miss the curry mutton, simply delicious! Take this with their freshly baked nan or their claypot vege rice.

The friendly staff and good unpretentious reasonably priced authentic Indian food. Great location in town centre. Only complaint was lack of an English or Belgium ale. However good lager and Guinness available.

I have eaten at Kumar's 3 times now over the last 3 months....each time the guys are great, friendly and jovial! Food is reasonable priced for a high traffic tourist area but portions are huge almost "American" style fat plates...which if you are hungry or not on a diet is fantastic! If you like good indian food especially nan and... More

A delicious Indian restaurant. Got a great deal for the boneless chicken. Got extra rice for free. We were pretty obnoxious and they still have great service. Got some free snacks too

Kumar's serve tasty Indian food and delicious fruit shakes. We highly recommend their Roti Canai, Buter Naan, Chicken/Mutton Jalfarezi. Did not like their biriyani.
