“Pathetic. Fake. Pls do not go here expecting that its the same as in HSB Chennai.”
I am bascially from India (Chennai) and I am working here in KL. I went with "great expectation" to have a simple south indian meal which I had a craving for. I have had many malaysian Indian banana leaf meal. But nothing can beat the true tamilian meal expereince from India ( with due respect to the malaysian Indians). I even managed to convince my family to it. The poor bearer think from India itself, gave me a choice of meals like excecutive meal, special meal and plain meals. Knowing the trick of these people I just opted for the simple meal as that was my objective. I was actually salivating thinking about the delicious sambhar and kara kozhumbu and the various varities of vege that I am going to get. The bearer brought the meal with a pitiful 6 pieces of katori. But I was expecting atleast some 12 to 13. ok. There was this pale looking sambhar, and a similarly looking kara kozhumbu, 2 teaspoon fulls of veges, 1 think butter milk, strange looking rasam, pitiful pickle, small papad and a bowl of rice. All this for 10.40RM. At first look all my saliva went back to the glands. I tasted the pale looking sambhar and other curries. I told the manager, the quality defintly does not belong to HSB from chennai. Its a differnt wine in the bottle of HSB. He told me " Sir, the water in malaysia is thicker and that is why the taste is different". Hello excuse me. There is no water in chennai, yet they are able to make acceptable offerings. Even the most simplest restaurant in india will give a better meal. In this comparison, let me tell you I salute the effort of the malaysian Indians to give a decent banan leaf meal. I felt cheated and insulted. Pls do not cheat people. And the cost is so so so so so so so exhorbitant. you can get better quality dosa and white chutney in Nasi Kandar. Pls think a 100 times before you go here. I can make better quality wholesome tamil meal at my home with Malaysian water. I went to the brick fields branch. May be the water in bangsar is better...Beware of these Indian brands trying to sell of fake things here. They think no one can find them..Boooo HSB Malaysia..try to change and adapt to malaysia or pls take of the name of HSB and be bold to run a simple restaurant..
