“Tasty and Fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

WOW!!!!That is what me and my wife were going like after we had our dinner and were heading back to our hotel....In all the places that we had eaten in SG and MSIA, this was the best we ever got.......it was next best thing to home cooked food.Hygiene wise there were no problems at all...We tried their fried chicken, and curry chicken and mutton as well...we were so happy and satisfied with the food that we actually went back for breakfast the next day. And just as the previous day, we were not disappointed with the breakfast at all. their breads and thosai were freshly cooked. and unlike alot of stall in Singapore and Malaysia, their gravy /curries were not reused or re-heated. Everything was fresh just like the night before. Me and my wife really look forward to going back to Melaka especially for the food at Selvam's

“Good Indian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This is at an excellent location. We had dosai, filter coffee, chicken thali set and all of them were very good. Their service was very fast and the waiters are very friendly. It is very cheap food but with excellent taste.
