Featuring the south and the north Indian cuisine from the city and the suburbs, we scour to bring you a delicious roundup of the best Indian eateries and curry houses in town in this article of Best Indian Restaurants in KL.

#1 Pay to your liking @ Annalakshmi

‘Eat as you wish, give us as you feel’ was the initial concept at Annalakshmi, a humble restaurant established in 1984 with an ambition to provide a variety of vegetarian dishes for the crowd without a tag price on the dishes and the freedom patrons to contribute! Many many years later, they’ve revamped the system and set prices at night and a daily lunch ALL YOU CAN EAT buffet for RM18 (RM21 Friday to Sunday).


Not too shabby given the variety of this smorgasbord makes it one of the best vegetarian outlets in KL. The popular chapattis are the best place to start but, as with all good buffets, leave space so that you can try everything. Vegetarian food without the aloo gobi and paneer? No way! With an ala-carte menu option, one can possibly get anything and everything at Annalakshmi for the best price and ghee-some meals.

#2 Kerala @ KAYRA Authentic Kerala Cuisine

Did you know you favorite appam was originated in Kerala? Quick fact: Kerala is a state in South India on the Malabar coast, popular for its coconut tree-lined beaches and many waterways. In terms of cuisine, the region is famed for its seafood dishes and affinity for coconut in all its permutations – coconut oil, fresh coconut, grated coconut, sliced coconut, basically nut cracks for coconut.

Cr: @nurmiracle

Like in Kerala, the dishes here see multiple use for mangoes (the state’s favourite fruit) as well as seafood — a combination that results in tangy flavours. The Allepey Meen Curry (RM30), in which fish is simmered in ground coconut paste and raw mangoes for a cheerfully zesty curry. For something similar to our home cooked fish curry try out their Meen Muppas (RM30) — spice-laden fish curry in rich coconut milk. The aromatic Coconut Pepper Chicken (RM25), works just as well in its mushroom version, the Koon Pepper Fry (RM22).For more info on their menu, check out Karya’s official or facebook page.

#3 Dining in The Dark

Cr: @ethelwlt

One of the quirkiest upscale dining in KL, Dining in The Dark offers one-of-a kind experience. As the name suggests, it’s a restaurant in total darkness. In here, you rely on your other senses. You’ll be guided by waiters who are actually blind. Dining in the Dark has another purpose— to portray the struggle of being blind. The menu tells you nothing but the number of mains, appetizers and desserts. The rest remains a mystery where everything depends on your senses, especially tastebuds. Their menu changes every 3 months to keep things interesting. So if you’re tired of the usual dining experience, Dining in The Dark will boost things up.  This is a pork-free and alcoholic restaurant.*

#4 Barat


Barat literally means “West” in Malay. Unlike the name, Barat is an upscale dining in KL that revolves heavily around vegetarian cuisines. It’s an odd in the culinary world to find combination of fine and vegetarian. Also, the palates in Barat has a touch of Mediterranean to further elevate your senses. Unlike other fine dining places, Barat plays around with different areas of ingredients and style to find balance and bring the best to you. Their chefs pour passion into every detail to create exquisite dishes.  This is a pork-free restaurant.*

#5 Lai Po Heen

Mandarin Oriental

If you think dim sum spots are only limited to local coffee shops, think again. True, local dim sum spots have the local nostalgia touch. But at times they can be too noisy. At Tai Po Heen, you get to enjoy dim sum like royals. Inspired by the great ancestral homes of 19th Century Chinese tycoons, Lai Po Heen is truly stunning with its gold and white tones. Their dim sum are not only delicious, but also aesthetically pleasant. So what’s good here? Try out their Peking Duck and durian pancake, both are highly raved about.  This is a pork-free restaurant.*

1. Kelate Kitchen

Cr: @ayuhtravel

A new addition to the things to eat in Setapak, Kelate attracted tonnes of crowd upon opening. Their sinful volcanic teh tarik and nasi would make you drool just by looking at their pics. Kelate serves authentic nasi kukus, and some crowned it as Nasi Kukus Beratur because you really need to wait quite a bit to get your hands on it. We recommend you not to go alone as everything here is self service and the drinks section is separated from the food section. Another highlight has to be their Teh Tarik Madu Special. Vibrant-looking teh tarik served overflowing with bubbles, how could you not try it?

#3 Hong Lai Restaurant

Cr: @mscarolinelzt

Locals are no stranger to Hong Lai, especially the Chinese. Having known to serve the best 月光河 (yue guong hor) in KL which means stir fried Hokkien Mee. You know Hong Lai has some serious good skills. Still uses charcoal as fuel to fry their noodle, you can smell the aroma from far. The dark, charcoal-like Hokkien Mee is incredibly mouthwatering. It packs a lot of flavors, especially wok hei thanks to the charcoal and black wok used to fry it. If you have not tried KL style Hokkien Mee, you have visit Hong Lai at least once. It’s one of the things to eat in Setapak you musn’t miss.

#4 Mali’s Corner


“Boss, koay teow basah satu!” Located in Taman Bunga Raya, Mali’s Corner is loved by the neighborhood. Different from Chinese-style koay teow, Malay’s style comes in more wet, soaked in prawn gravy. Mali’s char koay teow basah has an omph to it that set others apart. Wet, creamy, filled with char-grilled flavors. Paired together with their prawns is great. Besides koay teow, Mali is famous for their nasi lemak as well. You could literally smell the fragrant of coconut rice from afar.

#5 Wei Ji Claypot Chicken Rice

食La Vie

When talked about Claypot Chicken Rice, many would drool over the soy sauce glazed rice and chicken all cooked in one claypot. Indeed, claypot chicken rice is a favourite to many, and Wei Ji serves one of the best in town. Every order in Wei Ji is made fresh. We mean from cooking of the rice in the claypot, then mixing all the ingredients in including the spotlight, their sauce. Now you wait till everything cooks up over high heat, and you’re served. The flavorful, oily rice paired with their dark sauce marinated, tender chicken is heavenly. The salted fish in the rice complemented the whole thing.

#7 Hayaki Kopitiam

Set in Platinum walk is Hayaki Kopitiam, don’t be fooled by its name, it’s actually a really casual cafe. Serving Kelantanese dish, Hayaki has become a favourite in many. Their prices are fairly reasonable and portion is quite generous. Our recommendation? Nasi kukus of course, it’s a popular dish in Kota Bharu. Their other rice dishes such as nasi kerabu and nasi lauk are equally good as well. Hayaki Kopitiam is yet another unique things to eat in Setapak. How often could you get Kelantanese food outside of Kelantan? Chances are pretty odd.

Cr: @shafilayusup

Weekend calls for gathering, supper and other shenanigans. Burger, of course has to be Malaysian’s top list of supper. Burger Kaw Kaw is an atas looking roadside stall burger with bright lights, tents and ample spaces. Expect price to be on the higher side, but on hold, we’re not done yet. The portion, however is a lot bigger compared to others and they serve gourmet burgers ala-local style. Extra sauces are put on the table, you could drench your burger with as much sauce as you want.

#13 Thai Food Home Recipe


A true hidden gem in Setapak, and we mean it. Located in a secluded landed house with zero signage, only locals of the locals will know. Their operating hours are not fixed so it all depends on your luck. There’s no menu to refer at, only a few pictures hung on the walls and you order based on that. Our highlight of has to be their Thai spaghetti, a unique combination of East and West. You get to pick a flavor from three different curries— red, green and yellow. It’s like you’re having tomyam noodles but in spaghetti form, oddly satisfying. Thai Food Home Recipe is indeed one of the unique things to eat in Setapak that you have to try out. Owh did we mention that the owner would lock the gate, preventing more customers from coming in when their food is sold out?
