    The title holders of the best claypot biryani and naan breads in town! Restoran Kapitan is an affordable, family-style dining place which is continually bustling with tandoori zealots. The cheese naan tops the bill here. Fluffy naan topped with a lustering layer of cheese, served with dhal, sliced onions, mint sauce and their unique red sauce. You’ll be spoilt with choices looking at the eclectic side dishes, yet the regular crowd pullers are their classic crimson-coloured tandoori chicken, chicken milani and chicken cheese kebab. Try their energy booster – hot badam milk. Pure cow milk, ground with cashew nuts, raisins and almonds sounds peculiar but it’s thick and tasty.
    Tips

    During peak hours, be prepared to repeat your orders and get bored of waiting.

    Things to expect

    Complete feast of tandoori excellences.

    Best with

    Variety of side dishes and curries. End with a shot of badam milk.

    Sri Ananda Bahwan Tanjung BungahPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Sri Ananda Bahwan is a garden-style restaurant with an effervescent ambience and good service located right opposite Flamingo hotel. Unlike their other branches, it’s got fairly dimmer lights and is wooden themed, suiting the Tanjung Bungah beach which is just a stone’s throw away. As you walk in through the main entrance, you’ll be welcomed by colourful and tempting kebabs in long skewers, pleading "come and get me" alongside a wide selection of Indian dishes. The cheese naan here comes in a basket, sliced into smaller pita sizes and the cheesy portions are much crunchier. No worries herbivores; there are as many vegetarian dishes too. Their sweet and spicy Mushroom Manchurian is a perfect match for your cheesy goodness.
    Tips

    You’ve got to park at the housing area behind the restaurant as the front parking is always occupied.

    Things to expect

    Calming atmosphere, scrumptious meals and beers are available.

    Best with

    Try their Mutton Tikka - tender pieces of meat with thick gravy.

    Price

    RM15.00 to RM25.00

    Nestled in the crowd-chocking Little India, Karaikudi is widely known for its great punch of Chettinad (South Indian) style cooking and picturesque interior. You will likely be besotted when you walk in as the vibrant adornments, artistic photos, giant lamps and exclusive copper utensils sets the South Indian tone. Your first bite of the cheese naan will sound the alarm to order the next one immediately - feathery soft bread with gooey cheese that goes well with all side dishes in the extensive menu. You will constantly hear "ummmmppphhh" and "ooommppphhh" murmurs from the neighbouring tables. It’s close to crime to leave this classy restaurant without tasting their Sizzling Brownie – chocolate brownie on a hot plate served with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and cashew nuts.
    Tips

    Listen to the waiters’ recommendation if it’s your first time; they know best.

    Things to expect

Tandoori chicken diced into pieces, addictive Chili Chicken and Vegetable Makhanwala dovetail these warm naans delightfully.
