They have two choices for you to choose from: Vegetarian Briyani or a Mint Rice Set.

You can also choose their Famous Mutton Bone Marrow Curry (RM20), this dish is a must try. It's unlike any other mutton curry you'll ever try. The meat just comes right off the bone and has a buttery texture that just melts on your tongue. The best part is the bone marrow, it will leave you bone sucking!
Other dishes also include a range of seafood for you to choose from. Like the Kerala Crab Rendang (RM20-25), the price is usually based on the size of the crab. You would normally hear of Crab Curry or Deep fried Crab, but imagine Crab Rendang together with your Briyani Rice. The crab is cooked long enough that the meat is smooth and has absorbed all the spices and flavor from the curry. Once you indulge into it, you would not want to stop.
Another seafood dish is the Sotong (Squid) sambal (RM9-RM15), the price is set based on how much you take. So the more you take, the higher the price is. Just like any other sotong sambal, the secret is in the sambal itself. This one from Grand Neelas Banana Leaf Restaurant is super fragrant and seasoned to perfection. You'll be surprised at how soft and easy it is to chew on it. Unlike other sotong sambal you've tasted where the meat is chewy and tough. Moving on to a much more familiar dish, the Fish Cutlet (RM5), legit the size of this cutlet is as big as ones palm. Very crispy on the outside, spicy and juicy on the inside. Fish cutlets are best made spicy, slightly tangy and enjoyed right away when it's hot.
