Great place to have Indian veg and non veg

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... read more

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

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

Amazing food and such great value for money. If you love Indian food then make sure you make a visit to Selvam when in Melaka. Staff were very friendly, atmosphere great and food served on banana leaf was so yummy. We were all talking about how great dinner was for days after and wishing we could return and will definitely... More

We came here under the recommendation of a Lonely Planet guidebook and yes, they were right to include it in print! This place is great :D Go for the banana leaf meal (RM4) and you'll be satisfied! Try the watermelon juice too if you're thirsty (another RM4). A lot of the locals come here (many Indians included) so that's always... More
