Pelita never disappointed me. I've spent 3 months in KL and Pelita became one of my first favourite there! Always tasty, Always good quality and Always went home happy!

they have a few outlets all over KL and malaysia. they have moved from the previous location. but still along jalan ampang. the prices are on the high side compared to other indian muslim resto. they serve authentic indian food. it more like buffer. you choose the dishes which are precooked and you pay accordingly. service is average.

I was recently visiting KL and went to this restaurant but the Bangsar branch located in JLN Telawi 5. The Bangsar one is much more better place specially when you seat outside. The foods are amazing specially soup Lida, garlic cheese nan and chicken tandori. I recommend it.

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.
