Great Indian food

Really good Indian food restaurant at the end of Little India closest to the river. Everything I had (I went twice!) was delicious and cheap. One thing - they only serve some items at certain times of the day, so plan accordingly!

The place located near Melaka's Little India. We were there for breakfast.The food was generally tasty but there price was very very expensive compare to KL. We just ate 2 Pure Milk Coffee, 2 Ghee Tosai with Chicken Peratal the price is RM20.60. Overall good and tasty food. Maybe will visit in next trip.

Food was decent, not the best food I've had in Malaysia but nice enough. The good thing about it was the price. There's a few decent veggie options on the menu and I like they serve a lot of it on a Banana leaf. Tandoori was yum.

I've never really had Indian food before and decided today to try it. As I had no idea what to expect I found it helpful that the menu was in English. The waiter was really nice and helped us in how to eat the food properly with hands! 😄 (they put everything on a banana leaf) Delicious food, a lot... More

We were impressed by their menu items and ordered the rava masala thosai, onion roti, and banana thosai. We like how they just left the dhaal and chutneys in front of us to take as we required, not like other places where you are served it. Price was also cheap for the amount and quality of food. Will definitely visit... More

Visited Selvam as we felt we'd had our Chinese fix of Melaka and fancied a change. Great food very reasonably priced. Helpfully, the menu is in English with explanations of what everything is so if you aren't used to this type of dining experience, fear not. The water spoke English and I found the staff to be thoroughly efficient and... More
