Our Northern Indian fave

You might ask what's with the map? Our fave northern indian cuisine restaurant must be Thaba Village Restaurant along MRR2 (it's B13 on the map above and click here for the link). I was looking for it's address in the net and found this map which points to the restaurant.

Anyway if you take AKLEH (Ampang Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway) - take the MRR2 exit and as you drive into MRR2 there will be a sikh temple on your left and drive slowly in the most left lane and turn the next left which leads to Kampung Ampang where Mei Keng Fatt fatty crab situates (my partner's friend's [from Brunei] favourite place). As you turn in, Thaba is on your right (a bungalow which is lit with multi-coloured lights).

We are taking out my best friend, Yo and his assistants Yeh & Ajak who were instrumental in running the Ruby Anniversary dinner a success tonight (my sister, her hubby and my brother have been invited along too).

What we normally order are Lamb Shahjahani Briyani (cubed lamb steamed with briyani rice served with hard-boiled egg and kenyan green chilli - heavenly. It's not oily and the lamb is gorgeous! Be warned, the portion can be big for a small eater but Yusof can finish 1.5 portion here. Make sure you order the Shahjahani Briyani as most of our friends and relative whom we recommend do not bother browsing the menu and end up with plain chicken/lamb briyani!), plain dhal, chicken tikka, kashmiri and garlic butter nan and the chapati (perhaps one of the best I have tasted in KL because it's not dry!).

Apparently the crab masala is brilliant too (we have not tried this, though!) Wifey loves the teh tarik here and so does Khadijah and Yusof. The iced lemon tea is done just right here...not too sweet to my liking! And to top it all, ask for banana flambe for dessert (NB: the kulfi is not that nice here).

Whilst you wait for your order, the ladies can shop at this little "bazaar" which carries items from Kashmir like pashmina, table cloth, cushion covers etc...!

Shahjahani Briyani...here I come!

Khan's sedap. There was one Indian restaurant near my uni dulu.. Anila's.. sedap gak tu. On mondays, got half price somemore.. so we got our monthly fixes there.

kat mesia ni, tak tau kat mana yg sedap. N kedai mamak does not constitute as Indian food to me haha.. **poyo jer saya hehehe

Kat ipoh ada satu.. apakenamanya.. i wrote it in my blog once. Memang marvellous n cheap too.

B2A- I think I have been to the one in Ipoh....My ex-landlady from UK belanja we all last year. It's the oldest Northern Indian restrnt in Ipoh kan? Very reasonably priced!

How much money should I spare for two adults to have the recommended food at the place you mentioned?

Dad of Four said...

Sherrina - If you are just having shahjahani briyani plus drinks witout dessert about RM35. The dishes range from RM7 (chicken) to RM20(crab/prawn). SElamat menjamu selera!

on my mind certainly constantly
