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.

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.
