MTR 1924

Made famous in India and having made its foray onto Malaysian soil sometime this year, MTR 1924 serves Indian vegetarian cuisine done exceptionally well. Their dosas are seasoned and cooked to perfection, their chutneys delicious and flavourful and their menu varied yet focused.

Kumar's

Located at DC Mall, Kumar's is easy to recommend, thanks to plenty of quality dishes like fish head's curry, chicken 65 and stewed spinach with dhal and aloo ghobi to keep your biryani rice or naan company. Besides a hearty menu, guests can look forward to value for money set lunches that will give you bang for your buck.

Sri Ganapathi Mess

Operating out of PJ Old Town for more than a decade, Sri Ganapathi Mess is one of the best spots in the Klang Valley to have quality banana leaf rice. Their fried dishes here are done à la minute to ensure freshness, they offer dishes you can't get anywhere else like fried mutton, and their crab curry is a flavour bomb. Need we say more?

Namaste India

Nothern Indian cuisine is the name of the game over at Namaste India, a loving tribute to the owners' memories growing up back home. The restaurant's meat curries are hearty and flavourful, while their tandoor specials definitely make a fine pairing with their soft breads. With a rich menu to discover, and the option to have Grab Food deliver it to you if you live nearby, there's not much to dislike here.

Situated near the Masjid Jamek LRT station, Betel Leaf is a popular downtown choice, serving authentic Chettinad cuisine since 2009. The restaurant boasts an extensive menu, a warm ambiance despite its weathered furnishings, and delicious dishes for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Order the gobi (cauliflower) manchurian for a spicy dish to whet the appetite.
