Local Indian cusine

We had lunch here. Anyone intrested with low priced indian food than can visit here. You can find local cuisine as Roti canai and Nasi lemak food here. Price was very low. Taste is good.

That was the best food we'd have in Tanah Rata. Moreover, it's not expensive. Go there without hesitating, you won't be disappointed.

The food was forgettable...we ordered murtabak (dry), toast and eggs (average) and roti canai (okay, but have had better in Tanah Rata). What was TRULY memorable about Kumar's was the terrible customer service. 1st, the tables were dirty. 2nd, it took forever to receive our food, while other tables who arrived later were served before us. Finally, the owner plainly... More

We had dinner here as it was always packed when we walked past! The food and service was delicious. They also gave us recommendations. The place itself was grotty and really dirty - I had to ask for the table to be cleaned as was covered in food and ash from the last people. The chap did give us the... More

I have had the traditional south indian roti canai with curry, nasi lemak with it's spices fried chicken and the fried noodles. I like the tea they served which I had ordered a Boh tea, less sweet. It was just nice for me, with the rich tea flavor plus elevated condensed milk. Prices are fairly higher than usual Indian mamak... 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
