“delcious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The Restaurent is located closer to the Historical places. The spicy Chettinad food is prepared by the famous Mr. Selvam himself. Once you taste the food you will never want to go to other restaurents..

“Good choices available”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

My favorite Indian restaurant in town. They have the food on display so it saves us the hassle of trying to remember names of dishes and just point and choose instead. Normally rice is served on banana leave. They serve briyani rice on Fridays. Price is quite reasonable for the quality of the food. The downside is the location of the restaurant - it's very difficult to find a parking spot near the place during lunch hours, if you drive.

“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
