“Standard Malaysia Indian food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

The food here was cheap and satisfying. Ate Roti Telur (pita egg bread) and Nasi Lemak(coconut milk rice with boiled egg and chillied anchovies). I ordered the half boiled eggs but never get to eat them since the waiter forgot to prepare them. I had to cancel the order since we had to go somewhere else.

Order here if you can tolerate or digest Indian food.

“Good and Cheap Indian Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Good and Cheap Indian Restaurant on the Main Street of Tanah Rata.
We tried their Vegetable Banana Leaf Set meal; which came with steam rice, 3 kinds of vegetables, Papadams and Curry Potatoes.
Their Tandoori Chicken was also quite tender and delicious which came with a naan bread and Peppermint sauce.
Good Mango Lassi too!
What a bargain, all of this for below RM 20.00.

“Great food, superb service, excellent value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Was recommended here by the masseuse further down the road. Staff were friendly and very welcoming. I ordered the mutton and vegetable curry, but the waiter recommended the claypot mutton curry, and they added in extra vegetables free of charge. Roti was delicious and they also gave me a bit of rice, again no charge.
My friend had the vegetable banana leaf set. His came out first and I instantly had a case of food envy! However, it soon subsided when my hot pot came out bubbling fresh and smelling amazing. Staff greeted me with a smile when I walked past again the next day and asked if I would be visiting them for another meal. Very satisfied overall and would definitely eat there again!
Mutton claypot curry 10MR
Mango lassi 4.50MR
Vegetable Banana Leaf Set 7MR

“eat here at your own risk”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Its amazing how different the reviews are on some of these restaurants, some people must have cast iron stomachs , these Indian resturants on this strip of main road have the food cooked and displayed in plastic shelving and this is where it sits day in and day out
We stayed in Tanah rata for 4 nights and saw this food sitting there for that time minimum- no way you have been warned
The staff perhaps for this reason are very aggressive if the place looks clean which it does not and the food looks good you may give it a go but we did not Try instead the Hill station cafe and the golfers cafe i have put reviews on for these
