I've been to Pak Putra for two dinners in the past two years - it's our goto place if we stop in Melaka. Don't expect much from the place - hawker-style kitchen in the parking lot, brusque service and a short, really pretty boring menu. But even my mom who doesn't really like Indian food loved the tandoor offerings - chicken & naan - when we took her. I also really liked the lady fingers with potatoes. Along with a sweet lassi or two you have a pretty perfect meal.
The chicken comes with a nice dipping herb sauce and the naans with a mild dal (tadka, I think). We like all the naans and usually split a few: plain, butter sand garlic. We prefer dark meat, but either is brimming with flavor and tenderness.
Although they purport that two of their dishes are kid-friendly, we tried both but my daughter could only eat the naan on its own. She did like the lassi though!
We will continue to swing by as long as the tandoor chef delivers.
Prefer this over chicken rice balls.
