“Carpark food heaven”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

It took us a few goes to find this place after it was recommended by the Pakistani silk merchant in the main street where I bought some beautiful fabrics. Not just up the street as we had been led to believe. However a cab ride the following night brought us it a strip shopping centre where the carpark was packed with tables... a good sign.
We had the famous tandoori, a mutton curry and prawn curry and the sensational lime juice that is so popular everywhere. What a fantastic meal.. wonderful flavours and the naan bread, especially the Kashmiri naan.. studded with dried fruit and almonds was to die for.
We went there by cab and arranged for the driver to pick us up an hour later, we came back early so he could eat there too!
worth the search and so cheap.. about $15.

“Naan better?”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Yes there is, but this place is not too bad at all. Popular with locals and tourists, its mass of tables are sprawling across several shopfronts, so when busy you need to get the waiter's attention. However, no problems with service. Food was good. Tandoori and Naan baked on the street from several large clay pots. The toilet of this place is a tourist attraction in itself. Only time i have ever photographed a toilet. It should have its own rating.

“Likely one of the best Tandoori's you will find in Malaysia”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Tandoori and Naan sensational - the chicken very moist, not dried up like many other places...can order the leg or breast. They are constantly cooking 100's of pieces of chicken.

Other dishes good as well, all very solid - vindaloo, rogan josh, spinach etc, but the Tandoori quite clearly the showcase, so save room for 2 as opposed to the other dishes if need be.

Restaurant in a block carpark but they do have inside seating. Might need some mosquito repellent if outside. Service a tad slow, but to be expected...the place was packed.

“Great tandoori chicken and naan”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Chicken tandoori as good if not slightly spicier than the best ive ever eaten at restaurant osman kempas, johor bahru. We chose potato naan and it was really good...have to go earlier though. Waiting time 40 mins when dinnertime!

“"Curry in a Hurry"”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

My partner & I went here as we read the reviews on TripAdvisor & thought we would go & see if they were correct, well they are. Very much so in fact, yes the place is extremely busy but with good reason the food is superb, we arrived around 7.30pm & as people were getting up their seats were filled instantly, you would think with that volume of people that the service would be slow but it is actually quite fast.
We sat opposite where they were making & cooking the Naan bread, the speed, precision & taste is all equally amazing. They have a good selection of Meat & Vegetarian options using good quality ingredients & for price breads averaged between 2 to 4 RM & mains were between 4 & 8 RM which was very reasonable.
The service was attentive without being obtrusive, if you wanted more of anything it was there in minutes. We highly recommend to anyone going to Melaka, the reports are true this is some of the best Indian food we have had & I think we will be back.
