    If you love cheese naan, along with a good dose of tandoori chicken, as well as briyani, then you have to get yourself over to RSMY House of Real Briyani. The extreme cheesiness of the cheese naan goes really well with the spicy, aromatic and flavourful tandoori chicken, as it balances out the richness of the cheese.  

    Tips

    The curry is ordered and charged separately than its cheese naan.

    Things to expect

    A long queue; this may be tiring, but the manager is pretty fast in setting up new tables for customers.

    Tandoori Chicken can be found in many mamaks in the city centre, but with choices abound, some are just somewhat different from another. Here in Chapathi Recipes, you’re looking at their Chicken Tikka Booti, cooked to tantalize your palate with authentic flavours. The chicken is well marinated too, with spices and herbs emerging even from the core of the meat. The adept skills flaunted at the tandoor also plays a great role in charring the regal dish- virtually a compulsory element for a Tandoori chicken. 

    Tips

    Parking alternatives can be found in Giant or Ikon.

    Things to expect

    Comfort food all day.

    When it comes to first impressions, Restoran Mahbub wins all the awards. Occupying three shop lots and with even more tables spilling towards the CIMB bank next door, it really makes you wonder, "What makes them so popular?". Well, two things: Their Nasi Briyani Ayam Madu and tandoori chicken. Do not be afraid of the over-saturated red on the tandoori chicken, as it derives from the excessive use of spices - meaning to say, a more flavourful chicken! Paired with a piece of naan, it just can't get any better than this.

    Tips

    Reservation options available.

    Things to expect

    A huge and casual dining place with amazing food.

    Devi's CornerPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Devi's Corner is a great place for banana leaf rice, there's no doubt about it. Their range of curries, especially the crab curry has been voted by the public as one of the most addictive, satisfying and delicious curry available in any banana leaf restaurant. With that being said, their tandoori chicken is also one of the better ones out there. With a nice seasoned rub and cooked till tender perfection, a serving of it would pair really well with their aforementioned banana leaf rice. 

    Tips

    Only available after 6:00PM.

    Arumugam, otherwise known as Uncle Aru's Tandoori, is a humble and possibly most sought after stall for a good serving of tandoori. It is located right next to a guitar shop, in a hawker center, so do not expect much from the ambiance. On the other hand, the tandoori here is done to absolute perfection. The chicken is marinated with enough seasoning to feed a family of six, charred beautifully and cooked tender-soft. Ordering one of these along with their cheese naan is gonna be more than just amazing.

    Tips

    It gets really packed at night. Come early if you do not want to queue.

    Things to expect

    A hawker stall.

    My Papa's Naan is another great place in KL to order a delicious serving of tandoori chicken. Not only is it seasoned with a good balance of spices, the tenderness and juiciness of the chicken really comes through. Perfectly done, it goes incredibly well with some naan. For those hardcore food goers, opt for the cheese naan with additional cheese for that added richness and flavour!
