The shop is just a typical, average muslim indian restaurant. The food was ordinary in taste and quality. We can stomach that, but what's annoying is when the time came to pay the bill, the owner overcharged us, maybe he sensed we are not locals. When we asked for explanation since we can calculated the food bill by referring to... More

Very bad food and service was horrible.. The food takes ages too arrive and when it does its not even hot, it's cold and there is a stale smell that emits from the food they serve.. Very bad, I recommend not coming here..

Delicious "roti canai" "roti telur" etc. The curry however is very bland, tasteless. The noodles are tasteless at the Kensington Branch, but was rather tasty at the Bandar Indah branch. Doesnt really have that "mamak" style, more to Sabah style. Oh well..

It's not that we didn't like any other food, in fact, we love all kinds of food, Habeeb was just THAT GOOD. They give you a very healthy serving of rice to start and you can either choose from...

Our expectations were too high I think, after the reviews and lonely planet. The restaurant was quality wise not different from which you can find in any other Malaysian city. Really not special or very tastefull. Besides that the boy who was working there wasnt helping us in a good way. He looked very bored, playing with his mobile, and... More

Very good and affordable option. Next to KFC downtown. You chose your own food on a small buffet, around 15 options, both meat and fish.

Great local food, cooked quickly and one can watch the world go bye as situated on the main road. Reasonable price and a great menu of both local and western food.
