have been visiting this restaurant for along time, to eat chapati or rice with friends or family. A single meal of 2 chapatis ( rm2 x2), a single plate of chicken, eg; kimma chicken (Rm6), 1 glass of iced lassi ( yogurt) for rm 2.50...cents is a regular Punjabi meal: total costs is rm12.50 which is exactly usd3. An authentic sumptuous Malatsian-Punjabi meal. Not a Halal-Certified but. the suppliers are from Halal markets in Kusla Lumpur.More

Really loved the chapati with the varieties of self service food items. The chicken sambal was so good, went well with the chapati. The tea was superb too. Just a problem with parking.. busy street with narrow lane. There was a nearby place to park...but that guy charged us RM7 per hour and requested RM20 as deposit. Not even a proper parking spot. May need to improve on parking spaces but besides that , the place is great to eat. The laddo was good too. Must try placeMore

In this restaurant you can help yourself to chicken, beef and fish, all served in Indian gravy (with several types to choose from). (The exact choice of meat and fish can vary depending on the day and the time of day.) Rice and oven-baked flatbread...(referred to locally as "roti canai") are available anytime, though. Everything tastes excellent. Last but not least, they make awesome candy. Prices aren't high, and aren't low either. For a generous helping of several kinds of food, expect to pay 14 RM. For a small plate and a cup of tea, the price will be around 8 RM. The restaurant opens at 8 a.m., so it's a good place to have either breakfast or lunch.More

The hotel was opposite our hotel and not very appealing to the eyes, hence we just went in for a tea. Having a good experience with with the tea and the friendly/quick service, we tried dinner that day which was yummy. The overall prices are...also very reasonable. Sweets are also very tasty there. It is run by a sardarji and has authentic punjabi food. We went to the same place for all meals post the first visit. Home away from home :-).More

I was recommended this place as the best for Indian sweets and got a box to take away 20 ringget of a selection of the best. Food looked quite good too, tandori making breads. Food, they say, is better than the interior.

Justifies it's name, the taste is purely Indian and the dishes are made the Indian way. For a person searching pure north Indian food in KL, this is a paradise. Their paneer and aloo gobi is really delicious and the sweet lassi needs a special...mention. Tempting food ..can't wait to go here while in KL. Take away also possible so can eat in your hotel too. Owner is Indian so understands hindi. Their sweets are really tasty especially the Mysore Pak and the gulab jamuns unlike the aromatic smelling sweets in most of the south indian restaurant in KL. Easily gettable by LRT, just near to Masjid Jamek LRT station.More
