Visited and appreciated by the late Antony Bourdain, this is a must go to place for some amazing sea food. Thier speciality is the fish-head curry - but you can get all the seafood - tiger prawns and other fish cooked in the same sort...of gravy. Alos a lot of other dishes that will make you want to go back for more. I've been there twice on my last two trips to KL and am waiting to visist again.More

I have tasted many Nasi Kandar in KL, but this restaurant by far serves the most authentic taste. It taste just like those Nasi Kandar I can usually get in Penang. The place is clean and spacious. They have various choice of dishes. The price...is a little bit higher than average, but I do not mind to pay for good food!More

I went for there for buka puasa and took white rice, fried chicken (sooo yummy), hard boiled egg and curry sotong. And of course serve with mixed gravy or kuah campur taruk atas. It taste so good and very delicious until you lick your fingers!...Recommended to try sotong curry and fried chicken. Also, the murtabak taste good too. Surau are available at the second floor with a shared ablution.More

Im not really a fan of Nasi Kandar, but like most of nasi kandar the taste is so nice. Actually I dont know how to differentiate with other restaurant. I only can classify into delicious or nkt delicious. So, here Nasi kandar is delicious. It...goes well with fried chicken compared to honey chicken.More

Have never been a fan of Line Clear Penang even though I'm from Penang. However, wanted to check out the restaurant and the food offered here. Tried the Nasi Dalcha (Nasi Minyak) which tasted average at the most. The Ayam Ros (a quarter chicken) that...is served with the rice tastes ok but it's nothing to shout about. Price was RM4.70 for the rice and RM7.50 for the quarter chicken Ayam Ros. Have had tastier ones before in Kayu and Tajuddin Penang. My sons tried the Nasi Kandar and their feedback was mixed, ranging from average to slightly above average. The fried chicken is flavourful but a little over fried. The size of the chicken pieces are shockingly small especially the thigh pieces. In terms of price, this restaurant is reasonable. A meal for 5 adults cost RM55. The restaurant is spacious and well ventilated. The restaurant does not provide spaces for parking but ample private parking is available at a cost of RM3 (evenings). Day parking is based on the hours parked. Staff at the restaurant are very friendly. All in all, a fairly satisfactory dinner experience.More

We've been quite a regular guest for lunch in this restaurant. However, in multiple occasions we've been served with overcooked/undercooked rice. Quite a big deal here for Nasi kandar as the rice plays a big part in the meal as you won't eat your curry...with porridge. The dishes are OK, but at times it goes too spicy. Overall is fine but nothing so great about it.More

My boss took me here as when we were deciding where to go for lunch. We drove all the way from PJ as he told me that the one in Ampang Point is not as original as this one. I must say that he was...right! The curry here taste almost the same as the one in Penang although it has been a long time since the last time I was at the one in Penang. What I mean is that curry from Penang has its own distinctive flavour/taste and this restaurant maintained the QC. My maiden visit here we had the fish head curry, sotong curry and the lamb shank. Burp! Parking was ample behind the restaurant. But please be reminded that between 12.30 - 1.30pm the place is pack. So timing to reach there is important.More

We were cautious of the hype as this is the KL branch of the famous Nasi Kandar Line Clear of Penang. So could this restaurant live up to the 'legend'? As far as the food is concerned, that is a big YES!!! The Biryani rice...was tasty but what made it excellent was the combination of all the curry gravies ('kuah banjir') that was added to the rice. The mixture at first looked alarmingly scary but somehow, the flavours just seemed to blend so well with just the right amount of spice and heat. We enjoyed the rich Mutton Curry. The mutton was cooked perfectly; the meat was tender enough not to require a jaw workout but not to the point of disintegration upon touch. The fish curry was good; not too sour and very tasty, though the fish did seem a bit 'fishy'. The fried fish and fried squid were well-seasoned; a little overcooked but this was the norm for nasi kandar style of cooking. Even the fried vegetables were tasty. We enjoyed the ginger teas ('teh halia') that we ordered to go along with the tea. The beverages were not too sweet as we requested and there was enough of ginger to give that extra heat to the creamy sweetness of the brewed tea. The service was decent enough; we did not face any rudeness or apathy. The waiters were very obliging when we deliberated over which table to occupy. Beverages were served promptly and the food was dished and delivered as ordered. For food of this quality, the price was pleasantly reasonable. Lunch for three people consisting of three generous servings or rice, mutton curry, fish curry, fried squid, fried fish and an assortment of vegetables plus five servings of tea cost us slightly over RM56 (less than US$13!). That felt like such a value-for-money deal for such an enjoyable meal. Overall, it was a satisfying experience. The great food, good service and value-for-money pricing will certainly attract us to revisit this restaurant in the very near future. If the standards are maintained, it looks like we at least have an authentic nasi kandar restaurant in KL that is as close as you can get to the famous nasi kandar cuisine of Penang.More

If you really want to experience one of the local flavours, this restoran will not disappoint!! The Malaysian Mamak are Malaysians of Tamil Muslim origin (just a fyi for those who wouldn't know)! This restoran as they call it there offer a variety of dishes...from rice to briyani, fried noodles, and other tasty curries, like lamb, chicken, fish head, squid!! Most of them wud be quite spicy! But the taste is really nice and a big choices of rotis to naan!! Worth giving it a shot if u want to experience the "mamak" food, one of the malaysian favouritesMore

in my previous comments few months back, i gave a big thumb up for the restaurant ...but that was a past glory..today i brought my family for lunch..it was worst..the waiter a bit rude and he even demanded me to tell him why i dont...want any veggies. .Omg..i just smile. the worst part was at the payment counter. i tried to be friendly with the teller ..greet him nicely but he glared at me ..when i asked was there any other Line Clear Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur ..again he stared at me n rudely responded with no..wow just like that. ..no more warm customer service with like before. A simple lunch for 3 adults and a kid cost us RM92..exorbitant price. the restaurant a bit dirty now. no more free parking at LC..u have to pay rm2 per hour highly not recommended for family gathering . Better go to Serai or other expensive restaurant at least the price is commensurate with the good service, cozy environment and different smoking area. Please avoid this restaurant.BUT pelita restaurant is betterMore
