    Restoran Lot 85 serves one of the best nasi briyani in town. Apart from that, they are highly commendable for a couple of other signature dishes as well, such as their Kari Kepala Ikan (Fish Head Curry). This dish has a moderate curry taste, not too thick nor too runny and it is embellished with fresh coriander leaves and slightly raw ladies' fingers on the top. For a more pleasurable meal, get some finger-licking good fried chicken too!
