“Ayam percik = good; nasi kerabu = mediocre”
Review of Yati Ayam Percik

Yati Ayam Percik
Ranked #5 of 145 Restaurants in Kota Bharu
Cuisines: Malaysian
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Yati Ayam Percik is located along Jalan Long Yunus in Kota Bharu. Not a fancy restaurant but they do have an air-conditioned sitting area. I have been patronising Yati since the days they were selling from a stall at the night market in the town centre. As you can surely tell from the restaurant's name, ayam percik is the speciality of the house and is a must-try. It's basically charcoal grilled chicken marinated in spices and served with thick rich sweet-salty coconut sauce mixed with local seasoning. Frozen ayam percik is available for takeaway. One serving of ayam percik cost RM13. Their nasi kerabu however is just average. Plus point: The restaurant offers a variety of traditional Kelantanese dishes including a mind-boggling choice of kuih-muih and desserts. Negative: I find the current prices expensive by local standards.

we visited this place to try the local specialities, expected blue rice which was optional or not available. Otherwise very good.

We went there and the restaurant did not disappoint. Food was good and service was prompt. It was a little late at night but staff were still helpful and courteous

Be warned when looking for this place it's a bit out of town, and also not where Trip Advisor has it located on the map, the actual address is 847 Jalan Long Yunus. I went there for lunch, and they were only doing take away, so I sat on a street corner to eat.
That said, the long trek and confusion/asking locals finding the place, plus only take away option were completely worthwhile. I ordered Ayam Percik + Nasi Kerabu, 5RM. Simply put, delicious! I tried the Ayam Percik at the night market in the city and it does not compare to Yati's, the cocunut gravy is the perfect combo of sweet and spicy.
