We had lunch at Kumars, and we wouldn't recommend it. The food was oké, but you can get much better in town. We sat outside, but once we got inside we noticed how dirty the place was. Even the waiters had very dirty hands holding the glasses at the top.

We had lunch here right after we arrived with the bus in Cameron Highlands. The chicken tandoori was very dry and the mango lassie was made with syrup and not fresh fruit. The bill was also very unclear and turned out to be more expensive then we predicted... We will not return to this restaurant and had way better Indian... More

Clean and family type places to go. Food was average, nothing to shout about. Service was ok, price reasonable. Not the best on that street.

Average food, not as good as Cameron aa Curry House on the same street. We had the chicken tandoori set (served with rice, roti and three sauces) and the rice set (two vegetables, chicken, and rice). Both set menu were ok, but nothing special.

This place is a refreshing change from the Western fares & Chinese steamboat places in Cameron Highlands. Tasty and spicy Indian food at very reasonable pricing. Worth mentioning is their tandoori chicken and chicken rice which are very good.

We ate at Kumar's last night and enjoyed the food and fast service. The servings were a good size and the food was nice and fresh. The most dissappointing thing was that they allowed smokers to sit inside despite there being a no smoking sign. One of the other customers asked a man to stop smoking and he obliged, but... More

Hadn't found many vegearian retaurants in Tanah Rata, but this place more than met our needs. So much so, ate there every day when in Tanah. They do a good range of vegetarian roti, the vegetarian Murtabak is wonderful and the lassis are good too.

Not a fancy-pansy place, but delicious and cheap food. I ate here several times and although the service wasn't the smiley type, they were friendly enough and I have absolutely nothing to complain about.

Good food, good service and value for money. The waiting staff attended to is in a friendly and courteous manner. Food was served as soon as possible after ordering. Taste was surprisingly good. Will visit again.

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.
