24hours crowd.

This place never fail you. Open 24 hours, and suprisingly the crowd is always there at all time. Service is efficient. Great place for meals, snacks and drinks. Very popular with the locals and "THE" place to go when you need local food.

Very fast and cheap. The place is very loud - but this makes this place special. It was ok. Without wow effect. Food was good.

Great place to hang out with family while having supper or watching football. There's plenty of food to choose including desserts and soup

So you're in KL. Maybe a quick one, perhaps for a long time. Doesn't matter. Pelita is the name you should know. Well, it's the name that every locals know. Nasi Kandar is Malaysia's take on fast food. Get in queue, order your base of white or brianni rice then select your toppings such as curry chicken, masala, kurma, eggs,... More

This hotel located in front of corus hotel kuala lumpur. Very cheap food prices but too much crowded. Poor cleanness.

My husband and I go to the Sri Hartamas Pelita. The first time was hard as we cannot speak Malay and no-one seemed to speak English. We just pointed to stuff in the cabinet and tried it...after a few visits we found what we like the most - Very spicy honey soy chicken and garlic naan. The garlic naan is... More

Loved it. Tasty and cheap food. A great selection with plenty of flavour. It's not fine dining but that's part of the charm. Will definitely be back.

My friends and I visited this restaurant as recommended by the hotel concierge. She told us that our trip to KL wont be complete we did not dine at Pelita's. Since its just a few minutes away from our hotel and we wanted to try something local, we happily obliged. The restaurant was busy since its a weekend. Its brunch... More

Formal name on sign = Pelita nasi kandar. This place was recommended by the concierge at our hotel and was just down the street, but we were not impressed. We had chicken tikka masala and chicken tandoori at this hawker place. The tandoori was quite good but the chicken in the tikka masala was much drier. Portions were modest but... More
