“Tasty Chicken Briyani”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Love the food especially Claypot Briyani Rice with Chicken & Beef Tandoori and Salt Lassi. However the seating needs to be improved as it is overcrowded during lunch time.

“Restaurant Kapitan : Great Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Had Chicken Biryani Claypot for 8.60 Ringits on 24th Feb, 2013.. The Biryani had a heavenly aroma, nice taste. It was served with Raita and Daal. Daal was more of a "Daal Moradabadi" style and was nice. Menu was quite extensive. The service was good and prompt. Restaurant is open 24 hours a day and is always crowded showing its popularity with tourists and also among locals.

“Cleanliness could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The claypot biryani and almond milk are superb. Although I tried not to revisit a food outlet, this one was an exception.

How the staff clear tables could do a bit more improvement. While they clear tables very quickly, some threw leftover food and drinks in the open drain outside the shop. What were they thinking?? I'm already thinking of the rodents.
