Visited the place for some good punjabi food and they didn't disappoint. The Kari, Cholle and Daal were all on point. Very traditional and authentic just the way you'd expect it if you were in Punjab. It's a very basic setting and being a popular restaurant amongst locals, the waiters are often rushing around. Don't wait to be attended to... More

It's a serve yourself type place. The naan is made fresh if you order one. My meal of tandoori chicken, naan, and 3 veg was 12.50. That's the same price as I paid for a much smaller, less yummy meal at a much more famous place. I'd come here again, no problem. Don't be put off by the appearance of... More

The restaurant is not known for its ambiance or celebrity chefs but it is very authentic and very popular among local people. I was taken there by a local fellow while we had a little photowalk around various parts of KL. I'm not expert on Indian food but this one was very tasty. Their rice biryani was one of the... More

I always have lunch here when I am around Masjid Jamek area. I tend to go on weekdays for lunch as this restaurant is popular with office workers during in the afternoons – and for very good reason. The food is good, there is plenty of choice for vegetarians, vegans and non vegetarians / vegans as well. It does get... More

The naan, fried fish, chicken curry and papadam are the best! Not a place to go for the atmosphere. After you choose the food you want to eat, you sit and a man will come to "count" how much your meal will cost and write on a piece of paper for you to pay at the counter later. Be aware... More

This place is 5 mins from LRT Masjid Jamek on jalan melayu. Forget about the ambience & go for the food. Enjoyed their naan hot from the oven with moong dal, and lassi. I was there in the evening so it was not crowded. Will visit again to try out some other dishes. They have good variety of indian sweets,... More

I understand that this restaurant got its name from the slogan 'Jai Hind' of the Indian National Army whose supporters used to meet here prior to independence.This restaurant serves good Punjabi food in the center of the town. It tends to be crowded at lunch hour especially between 1230 to 2 pm as it is frequented by both Malaysian and... More

I just go for the capati, so I cant comment on the rest of the menu. The capati is always soft and freshly made. I didnt give a full 5 out of 5 because of the cleanliness.
