I went here for Indian Food , I would say Restoran Kumar would be the best choice for South Indian food . Food is fresh and there is also Chicken Rice - Chinese Style served. We had usual Roti Channai and Roti Telur with Teh tarik - was good.

The food here is phenomenal and so cheap. Particularly recommend the tandoori chicken tikka combination and the chicken with cashew nuts. Breakfast is also good - the mee goon set me up well to tackle trail 10 this week..

Walked in with no expectations cos the environment was nothing to shout about. The tandoori chicken was surprisingly good for the price we paid. The naan was a bit hard but overall exceeded expectations.

Had teh tarik with my family members. Reasonable price and good food ! There were around 15 of us and we enjoyed our time in this restaurant. Their teh tarik woth kurang manis was so good.

This is my favourite mamak in Cameron Highlands - simply because it's a 24-hour hangout. The food is as good as any other mamaks in Malaysia - I'm particularly fond of their maggi goreng and mi goreng.

Tried a few restaurants along the main drag in Tanah Rata and this was definitely my favorite spot. They serve up delicious Indian fare along with some Western dishes. Definitely recommend their butter chicken, tikka masala, and some sort of pancake filled with vegetables. Kopi Ais and Limau Ais are also nice and refreshing. Probably the best part about eating...

The restaurant has a big amount of options to choose from. We ordered the Chicken Tandoori combo and it was delicious! The restaurant is well situated, has accessible prices and yummy food. The only thing is the staff. It would not hurt to smile a bit more :)
