Shobana's Kerala Kitchen Petaling Jaya

Comfort meal comes in many forms: oatmeal, pie and etc, but as true Malaysians banana leaf rice has got to be one of them. Located at Bukit Gasing, Petaling Jaya is a homey Indian Malayalee restaurant -Shobana’s Kerala Kitchen.


This restaurant is spacious and cooling as they are air-conditioned, so customers can have their meals comfortably. The interior is quite unembellished and plain; however they leave the decorating part to the dishes. They are open daily except for Tuesdays from 11am to 3pm which is the perfect time for people to go out and have lunch.

Speaking about lunch, the friendly owner has laid out their banana leaf rice set which includes the rice, curry, 4 side dishes and papadam, this costs around RM7.50++. Furthermore, the owner also served us a wide array of additional dishes for us which includes their signature aviyal, shark fish putu, seafood masala etc.

Our favourite additional dish was the fluffy shark fish putu, signature aviyal, crunchy fried cauliflower and the spicy seafood masala.
