In a few weeks ago i had this Naan in Melaka Raya which is pretty good. It is situated just opposite station one cafe. The Naan i had was puffy, not greasy and it compliments the tandoori chicken very well. I always thought that was the best naan in melaka. But when i ask all my friends which restaurant serves the best naan in melaka, all of them unanimously agreed that the restaurant Pak Putra.
Unwilling to believe it just yet, i went to pak putra to check it out with my friends. According to my friends i learnt my dinner would cost probably up to 15 ringgit and above, so I was expecting a fancy restaurant with tablecloths and fancy cutlery, accompanied by air conditioned environment. But when i reach i was honestly shocked to see the restaurant looks like a typical mamak stall. But granted, i was being judgmental before i even tasted the food.
I ordered a naan cheese with a chicken thigh tandoori and a butter chicken as a side. Being a hungry man that moment, i hated the wait, especially when i see the man beside me was happily munching on his naan. After a 20 minute wait my naan and tandoori finally arrived. The naan i must say was a little more thinner than the one i had in Melaka Raya. Nonetheless, it managed to live up to its reputation. The Naan was still quite puffy. It was not greasy and it was not too chewy, and it compliments well with the tandoori. Although so, the main point in this restaurant is not the naan, but the tandoori. The tandoori is (hands down) one of the best tandoori i had. it wasnt dried up nor was it too greasy; and it was not too flavourful as compared to the ones i had in Melaka Raya. This tandoori was cooked to perfection. The butter chicken was pretty tasty, but for this i still think the ones i had earlier was better.
And to end the naan dinner, what's better than a cup of fresh mango lassie?
For the total of the meal, mine cost a little bit over 20 ringgit. It was a reasonable price for such a great food.
All in all, great food and reasonable prices. The only thing that bothered my dining experience is the wait and the environment. But then again, those are forgotten after the first bite of that chicken tandoori.
