Drop in to Kumar's for lunch. Had a masala tosai (RM4), tandoori chicken naan set, drinks (1beer) for only RM20. Food was tasty, big portion, offers a variety of food from breads to rice to noodles to soups and so on. Staff were friendly and surrounded by other shops, restaurants and a Starbucks next to it. Plenty of carpark space... More

Drawn in by the good atomosphere created by the street-side tables. The menu is huge and everything is affordable, mains range from RM5 to RM16.

The restaurant is simple and "touristy". We had very good naan bread and chicken. They also have several types of lassis. I tryed the mango lassi, which was very very tasteful!!

We had lunch at Kumar's during our visit to Cameron Highlands, we read a lot of reviews and also the host of our B&B recommended this place. Firstly we were doubtful due to "particular" cleaning of tables and chairs, but a lot of asian and occidental people were eating there. We decided to remain and it was a good choice.... More

This is by far the best cuisine I've had in the whole of Malaysia. The flavours exploded in my mouth, these ppl saying its tasteless may well have just ordered something they didn't like and judged the whole restaurant but I ate there every day for four days so tried a variety of dishes and was not let down by...

Food was incredible and nicely price. Our server was great and referred to us by name every time we came back. Gave us free food, asked about our trips, and served us some of the best indian food we've had in Malaysia. Would go back again today if I could!

Food was tasteless though waiters were friendly. Do not be lured in to this restaurant just because of the waiters' sweet talk or the crowd.

This is one of the only restaurants which are open late into the night and where we went for a nice soupy treat during the cold monsoon night. Indeed, the food was delicious and service good, making it a place you should go to while you are there
