Fantastic place! Loads of different types of food and friendly service! We visited a number of times, the service was always good and timely. They also don't overcharge you because you're a tourist.

Basic looking restaurant with local food but you wont get better tasting food anywhere from any top class restaurant. We ate until we were full for around 15MYR per person. If you like tandoori chicken come here.

This place never fail you. Open 24 hours, and suprisingly the crowd is always there at all time. Service is efficient. Great place for meals, snacks and drinks. Very popular with the locals and "THE" place to go when you need local food.

Very fast and cheap. The place is very loud - but this makes this place special. It was ok. Without wow effect. Food was good.

Great place to hang out with family while having supper or watching football. There's plenty of food to choose including desserts and soup

So you're in KL. Maybe a quick one, perhaps for a long time. Doesn't matter. Pelita is the name you should know. Well, it's the name that every locals know. Nasi Kandar is Malaysia's take on fast food. Get in queue, order your base of white or brianni rice then select your toppings such as curry chicken, masala, kurma, eggs,... More

This hotel located in front of corus hotel kuala lumpur. Very cheap food prices but too much crowded. Poor cleanness.
