We enjoyed the Indian food at Little India in George Town back in 2011, where we tried vegetarian food at Woodlands Vegetarian Restaurant (loved the Palak Paneer so much that we started ordering this dish whenever we go to Indian restaurants) and delicious tandoori chicken and naan at Restoran Kapitan.
This time, we thought that we should try a different restaurant, and ended up at the Restoran Daun Pisang Sri Ananda Bahwan, as it was the most crowded. There were a good mix of Caucasians, Indians and Chinese patrons, so we thought the food should be pretty decent. In all, we tried:
- Tandoori Chicken (RM6.50 +6% GST): This was not bad, and the meat was quite tender.
- Hariyali Kebab (RM7+): The meat was more tough, but still not too bad.
- Palak Paneer (RM12+ for medium): There was some confusion when the “palak paneer” arrived looking bright orange, when it was supposed to be cottage cheese cubes cooked in a smooth spinach curry. We kept reiterating what we ordered before they returned with the dish that really did not appear very green to us. It was the saltiest version that we have ever eaten 😦
- Garlic Naan (RM3+): We thought that it was abit undercooked, and the garlic flavours did not come out fully.
- Masala Tea (RM1.80+): I’m not sure what was the difference between Masala Tea and Masala Milk, for this drink was milky too. It was extremely sweet 😮
It was a rather disappointing meal for us 😦
