    Mohd Yaseen Nasi Kandar is authentic penang-styled Nasi Kandar that gets our mouth watering. They consistently serve up dishes that are just great.

The curries here have been dish out deliciously for many years now and that’s why we just cant get enough.

    They have their own channels on their tv’s, their own tissues and aprons. It’s no other than the original kayu nasi kandar. Forget the history of what made them who they are now. What is important is their food and their food is still amazing. They serve thick curry, spicy sambal, perfectly fried chicken and a lot more sides. This place is worth the visit anyday!

    Lotus is well known in KL to deliver quality indian food. Their system of ordering can be confusing (some self service, some order at the table) but their food is well worth the time. They are famous for their deep fried food but what makes this restaurant what it is, is their nasi kandar with thick flavorful curries, crunchy fried meat, and tender braised mutton. You’ll be surprised how colorful their food is!
    Tips

    Parking is terrible here. Take public transport if you can.

    Terrible method of ordering.

    Syed Bistro (formerly known as restoran syed) at Bangsar is an upscale nasi kandar joint that provides air-condition and good service. This place is slightly more expensive than you would expect to pay at local joints but since it is a franchise, it’s quality assurance behind those extra charges. Their tender lamb shank is worth a try. Pile up on their crunchy cabbage, some sotong and pour those curries until your heart is contented.
    Tips

    More rice is better than not enough rice.

    Good service and cooling environment.

    Hailing from Penang, Line Clear Nasi Kandar has finally opened up a branch here in KL. Located in Kampung Baru, this insanely long-queued-restaurant has been the spotlight of nasi kandar in Penang for many years, even until today.

A huge variety of dishes to choose from, with the fried chicken and sambal sotong being some of the more popular picks. Don't forget to flood them in curry!

    Tips

    Come early and avoid peak hours.

    Things to expect

    TG's Nasi Kandar has been voted as one of the best nasi kandar restaurants in KL. It has even appeared on local newspaper and is evident by the amount of customers. The only issue is, the restaurant is fairly small, so it might be a little tight. However, all will be alright when you have a taste of what they have to offer. Deliciously cooked dishes spread across multiple lines, with each one of them tempting you to go after it. From fried chicken to sambal fish, stir-fried vegetables to curry, there's just so much to have here.

    Once a haven for shisha, Restoran Al-bakarth does surprisingly well in the nasi kandar section. They may not have the widest array of dishes on display, nor do they have the most stunning looking ones. However, what they offer is a solid tasting, delicious and worthy of recommendation set of dishes. It goes great with rice as well as a spoonful of curry. In short, they may not excel in nasi kandar, but it's sufficient to satisfy your cravings.
