This used to be one of my favorite indian restaurants in the area, still is. I like the fact that it is located within a row of shops that people often overlook. It works for me though because the quiet, ‘hidden’, underrated element, is one of the reasons why I like this eatery.
They have been around for some time now and has a high rating score on Google – an average of 4.2/5 from almost 600 reviewers/customers. So, rest assured that food is good. Customer service is awesome too. They are almost always polite, accomodating, welcoming and attentive.

Salted Egg Briyani, 24.90 ringgit
Long story short, as I was scrolling their Menu, I came across this page …
Notice the “Salted Egg Briyani”?? I certainly did. The only ONE in the world? A perfect CHINDIAN dish? Fulamakkkk!! I must give this a trylah.

This dish was da bomb! They were right, this is most definitely a CHINDIAN dish. The Salted Egg from the Chinese side and the rest of the briyani from the Indian end, a surprisingly delicious combination.
The first thing to hit you would be the tantilizing and hunger inducing aroma of Salted Egg. You’d start salivating in no time. Digging into it was simply divine. You’d get chunks of boneless chicken nicely coated with salted egg. Soo yummy! The long grained rice had a nice mix of flavors. What hits you immediately is the distinct taste of salted egg but with a twist because you’d also get the underlying flavors typical to a briyani – the spices and some heat. Delicious!
I honestly wasn’t expecting much but the dish sure did exceed my expectations. It certainly is worth a try if you are a fan of salted egg and indian food. Chindian food it sure was.
