We were strolling through Little India in Georg Town when we came upon Restoran Kapitan. It's a no frills looking place but they had a great selection of classic Indian dishes - great tandoor, delicious Butter Chicken and garlic naan. they don't serve beer but a guy at the next table went around the corner to a little shop and brought a couple beers back which we thought was genius.

Very good food at a good price and fast service. You can get completely full for under ten ringit. A meal like this back home would cost 30-45 ringit. If you like good indian food then search no further.

It is a popular place and some of the food choices is indeed good to excellent but come on a busy day, or on a day the waiters feel busy, and it's a nightmare. Long wait to order, wrong order, some of the food arrived as we were leaving and they still charged us. We tried to argue our case with the woman at the till but she was too busy chatting with someone else to even pay attention. Basically this place is doing well so the management feels it doesn't need your custom and the staff knows it. It was very dirty too.

We were recomended the lamb, but did'nt have too much time. The dahl and nan and other side dishes were tasty and it was very cheap - and full of locals. Worth a try.
