As a follow on from my earlier review in 2013, this time we came back early (6.30pm) to make sure we had the tandoori chicken. Boy are we glad we did...it is seriously everything it is hyped up to be and more. It is one of the best tandooris I've ever had; the meat is succulent and juicy (unlike the typical dryed out tandoori one tends to get). Even the outside of the meat is perfectly roasted to have a springiness with slight charring which is the hallmark of a good roast. It was so good that 3 of us had 5 portions! The rest of the food is as good as we remembered it, although this time round the prawns were not as fresh as we'd have liked them to be. The new dish that we tried was the spinach mutton, which was excellent and certainly well worth a try.

We also ordered fruit juices this time round, and at RM5 a big glass, it is a steal. Bear in mind that they do add sugar, and you can tell them to hold the sugar.

3 of us ate about RM70, and we would certainly be back.

I never thought that I would enjoy Indian food in Malacca and was glad when a taxi driver recommended us the place. We walked from our hotel in Lorong Hang Jebat and with google maps it wasn't too difficult to find. We ordered tandoori, chicken masala, garlic naan, cheesy naan and spinach and teh tarik. It was delicious and the tandoori was not at all dry. And as there were only 2 of us, the waiter was very quick to separate the foldable tables for us.

I was recommended to this shop by a friend of mine. I walked from Jonker street towards Casa Del Real and slightly further to reach a row of shop houses on the right.

I reached the restaurant at 1630h but they only start operating from 1700h. They have variety of Nans to choose from and the side dishes. Truly an authentic Pakistani recipe.

This is a good reasonably priced dinner venue but don't expect fancy decor and executive service. Take your sit, eat your food and keep moving.

Great fluffy tandoori with many different flavours to choose from. Tandoori chicken was juicy (not the usual dry meat). Make sure to request more mint sauce from the owner as it complements the chicken well.
