Well known for banana leaf in town and the restaurant located nearby the famous Jonker Street. Tasty banana leaf food with lots of variety for both vege and non-vege and price is really reasonable.

We came here every day of our stay in melaka for Breakfast and tea because it was such good food at a very reasonable price. It was only over the road from a great guesthouse. The rice dish served on a banana leaf filled us up for the day and the tandoori and naan combination for tea was delicious. Would... More

Just go there to enjoy their wonderful tasty meal. Fridays are always the best since they serve varieties of side dishes. Yummy. Much recommended to go

The food was tasty, absolutely fulfilling and it made me happily dig into the banana leafs. The Rasam and buttermilk were authentic, loved the puffy idli and dal-rice was yummy.

We went here every day for three days and tried breakfast, lunch and dinner. Friendly staff, picture menu and very good food for a reasonable price (good combination deals but we think the best value is the tandoori chicken and naan combo!). Also highly recommend their mango lassi and an excellent ice milo, have a meal here!

My girlfriend and I came here late at 9:30 but this was still open. We ordered something really basic like the Nasi Goreng and Mee Hoon Goreng. Both were decent. We also ordered Thosai which came with a dhall and two chutney. The hygiene for these sauce were questionable by Western standards (they look like they've been here for a... More

My partner and I ate here for 3 days running because we struggled to find diverse veggie food nearby. Food was always fresh and very flavoursome. Recommend the masala dosa. And have some of fried dahl ball.

Selvam was recommended to me by my hostel, so I went there for lunch. They specialise in one dish for lunch, which is served on a banana leaf (rice, vegetables and some meat/fish/whatever). The service was fast and the food was great. On top of that, it is actually very cheap. I would recommend it any time!

Seriously. Everything else seemed overrated in comparison. Selvam's by contrast, EXCEEDED our expectations. Very very reasonably priced, delicious south Indian food in an authentic setting with great, speedy service. It was so good, we went back again the day after. Try the briyani rice and definitely order a dish of sambal squid - tender morsels of squid in a spicy... More
