I think they serve the best Indian banana leaf rice in town. Love their dry curry chicken and they serve really nice rasam too. Which I found its able to cure sore throat!

Been here every year and you should to if you're visiting Kota Bharu. Street style quick lunch or night snack after a few cold beers would be best, it's not a fancy restaurant with a huge menu but taste knocks it out the park every time.

This is also a South Indian Restaurant, cheap on pocket. The restaurant has been around for decades and you can see the pictures of the restaurant since their opening and times of flood in KB, adorned on the walls.

Food taste: 6/10 Food variety: 2/10 Cleanliness: 4/10 Service: 3/10 Overall: 5/10 Im suprise! The taste still same after 15 year. Meena Curry an indian banana leaf rice. They unlike any Indian curry house, they serves curries that are influenced by a mixture of local and Indian styles.

1. Typical Indian restaurant set up with pictures of the flooding history including the most recent one. 2. The curry fish that I tried was so so probably because it was not warm up, curry-wise Southern Indian type, not too spicy. 3. Food selection was few in between.

One of the best Indian cuisine. Chicken varuval is their speciality. Didn't try them But everyone who came after me ordered them. Order fried fish with banana leaf. Good taste and customer service.

The food here was highly recommended, but when I tried their special chicken I found it too sweet for my taste. This is a feature of northern Malay cuisine (the addition of sugar to savoury and hot dishes) and it appears the proprietor of this Indian restaurant has adapted to local palates. Also the floor was extremely greasy, to the... More

Says the owner. I don't know about being the best, but it is pretty darn good chicken. We love coming here for rice on banana leaf with lots of Meena spiced chicken and poppadoms. Never really tried the other foods they have like curries and others, but we swear by the chicken. I would say the price is a little... More
