    Penang Indian Restaurants and Food

    Kedai Kopi Yasmeen is I think the name of this place on the corner of Chulia Street and Penang Road, bit scruffy like most of the places in Georgetown and also doesn't sell beer, probably Muslims or something like that.

    I know there are other threads on this forum with this exact same restaurant on, but I really don't think a forum can ever have too much on it about lovely Indian food

    As you can see in this picture, they have gallons and gallons of different curries.



    My chicken curry with yellow rice, yep half a chicken so there aint no hunting for bits of meat, whole lot with soft drink came to about 7 Ringgit.

    It's been several years, but Penang Indian food is great.
    For about five weeks, my staple lunch was roti and a vegetable curry at a little shack place in Batu ferringhi. Night time, would vary. Washed down with guinness.

    THE best Indian rest. in the world is the Kashmir in the basement of the old hotel Penang. Been there for years and run by the same family for generations.

    Don't recall the street name but its across from the Novatel and down the street a couple of meters towards the V intersection.

    Worth a look for anyone in the area that loves Indian food.

    E. G.

    I have to agree about the Kashmir, it's on the corner of Penang Road and Leith Street.

    This place is on Leith Street and was never open when I went past last week, says they got the best Tandoori, the place looked brand new but the sign says it has been open since March, anyway I didn't see it open

    Respectfully disagree, Dant. Trendy but the food was third class.

    You seem to be under the impression that your post here is worthy of allowing you to put a link in, cant see why myself.

    Passage Through India have a branch in KL - that was good!
    Also in Bangsar there is a restaurant run by a Sikh community group.
    All the staff are Sikh mom and pop types and change every day .
    The moms do the cooking and the pops are the waiters.
    No Menu just what mom wants to cook that night - its is REAL home cooking and bloody great!.
    No price list either - you just make a donation to the group ! ( based on how much you enjoyed the meal )
    We had some wild evenings there- draft Guiness and some whiskey at reasonable prices as well.

    ever go there E.G ? That crazy bugger Dilsher and sidekick Carol were the people to go with!!! LOL

    Delete that last sentence Replace with - Our legal director and his deputy were good company there !

    Ali Selamat Cafe, Chulia Street

    This place in an Indian and Western food restaurant, I tried to keep away from my normal Indian place and was going to try some Western food, I thought I could do a few days without an Indian, I was wrong, spent most of my time in Little India, damn they got some good food there, anyway this place is open 24 hours and is on Chulia Street.



    Look at the choice of curries, how could I order beans on toast.



    Not really into all this stainless furniture.



    I plonked the chicken into the rice dish for an easy picture

    Just thought I should mention this, the Tai Wah Cafe on Chulia Street isn't a cafe and doesn't serve food anymore, just sells beer and drinks, so don't waste your time there waiting for a menu like wot I did

    Down the little alley way beside the Kedai Kopi Yasmeen I always thought was a small market as it was always packed solid, it's actually just a couple of Indian food stalls, loads of tables and this was the only time I saw that it wasn't packed solid.



    The Indian Roti stall.



    Anyway I went into the Kedai Kopi Yasmeen and had a chicken curry for a change.

    Hey why not you go to Merlin Nasi Kandar...located under old old pre-war hotel called Merlin Hotel near Penang Street. The business only at noon...this is the best nasi kandar I ever taste...fish curry and chicken curry are my favourite choice.

    Restoran Kapitan

    Actually the best curry I have ever had for a great price was at Restoran Kapitan in Chulia street in Georgetown. I had a butter chicken that was so tender. Hmm the water is still running in my mouth when I think about it.

    It is on the corner of Chulia and Kapitan street.

    +1 to that.
    I am from North india and was in penang on 12th May,2012. The tandoori preparations in Kapitan were fabulous. Would definitely go there again. Pretty popular with locals too.

    I was in there about a year ago, and apart from only having about half the menu available, it was alright. Not spicy enough for me. Luckily, I can buy proper British curry in Udon now, so it's all good.

    What would that be, some milk-toast with sprinkle of pepper and cumin, with a side of mushy peas???


    A good curry should be hot enough to make the top of your head sweat without burning the palate.
    A Vindaloo is what should burn your face off

    Most Indian curries have little or no heat.

    Yes, a British one. The Indian vindaloo is very different, and yes, I've eaten both many times.

    Anyway, Yanks know as much about curry as they do about subtlety.
