|Basic Meal @ RM 6.00|
|Mutton Varuval @ RM 9.00|
We then ordered a plate of the following dishes which you would be able to see from the photographs.The first dish was Mutton Varuval. Honestly, this is not Mutton Varuval. Somehow, this is a hybrid between Varuval and Parattal. However, the meat was tender, lean and of good quality. Taste was not that great. I would rate this dish only 5/10 .
|Chicken Parattal @ RM 7.00|
This dish was much better than that of the mutton. Meat was mostly tender and the gravy was good. The portion was small for the price though. Rating shall be 7/10 for this dish.
|Tenggiri Fish Fried @ RM 5.50|
|Onion Sotong @ RM 8.00|
This dish was also good. There was a funny thing that happened when I ordered this dish. I told that Tamil waiter who took my order to get me a plate of fried squid in Tamil and he said they don't have that. His reply was in Tamil too. I then told him that I just saw it at the frying station and then I replaced the Tamil word for squid into the Malay word Sotong, then he understood. Kind of funny right. Your a Tamilian from Tamil Nadu India and you cant speak proper Tamil. Well coming back to this dish, it should not be called Fried Squid in Onions. It would be more appropriate to call this Fried Onions in Squid. There was a great deal of onions and limited Squid here. This was disappointing. Taste was good though. My rating for this dish is 6/10 . The lower rating is not for the taste but because I feel it is too expensive for the quantity and the feeling of being cheated by putting so much onions in the plate and just a few pieces of Squid.

On the whole, I think there is great room for improvement here but I doubt that they would as they seem to be quite arrogant. This is mainly fueled by the huge amount of customers. If you see carefully, most of their customers are not Indians but the Chinese, Malays and Foreigners. The Indians would be seen heading to other Banana Leaf Restaurants as the taste is better in many of the restaurants out there. The price is also very expensive and it is simply tourist price. Service levels also have got to drastically improve.
