    Sri Nirwana MajuPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Sri Nirwana Maju is definitely among the popular ones! Get ready for a short wait for a free table since you will most likely find it crowded. The banana leaf rice set will not leave you disappointed since the side dishes that come with it are irrevocably the best! Especially their fried bitter gourd. Some of you may squirm when hearing bitter gourd, but trust us, it is far from bitter and close to heavenly!
    Tips

    Order the Indian rice (lower starch content and sells out fast)

    Things to expect

    A lot of people and food.

    Jaipur Curry House is so good that by the time it is lunch hour, you will find masses of people already sitting down on a table that you could’ve gotten, if you had arrived earlier. So what is it that draws such a crowd so fast? The answer is scrumptious food, my friend! Nothing in this establishment falls short from the phrase “yummy, yummy in my tummy”, not their vegetables, not their fried meats and fish and especially not their rich curries!
    Tips

    Get there early to beat the crowd.

    Things to expect

    The chatter of a lot of people enjoying their meal.

    Best with

    Blueberry lassi.

    Restoran Chat Masala is an oldie but still a goldie. It has been around for a decade now. It offers a range of Southern and Northern Indian food, but let’s focus on the banana leaf shall we? The banana leaf rice is untraditionally served on a metal plate, but the food is as traditional as it gets. Imagine fragrant rice (YUMMY!), opulent curries, crispy vegetarian side dishes, rasam and papadam!

    A good place to dine after a tiring day of going to the various indian shops in the neighborhood.

    Chef Ravi Corner Pork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Another restaurant that has banana leaf rice as their specialty in KL, Chef Ravi Corner's banana leaf rice is a must if you happened to be at Sentul. Their spicy dry-fried, chicken/lamb or varuval is to die for. Not to mention their chicken masala too, which is also one of their very popular dishes to eat with banana leaf rice, but if you bored with meat, don't worry, Chef Ravi Corner also serves fishes. The fried Pomfret or bawal probably the best dish that isn't meat at this restaurant and it goes well with the banana leaf rice too. This fried fish is fried to perfection and seasoned with some masala on top. Crispy on the outside and soft, white flesh on the inside. Honestly, what's better than that?

    Tips

    Their dessert, Payasam is a must try

    Things to expect

    Can get a little crowded during lunch hour
