Restoran Basil Leaves @ Kajang, Selangor

If I ask for one name that would come to most peoples mind when they think of Indian food in Kajang, that would be Basil Leaves. Over the years, this restaurant has brought itself to be in a prominent position. 

Restoran Basil Leaves along Jalan TKS 1

Clean and Air-Conditioned
Basil Leaves  occupies two shop units in Kajang Sentral and the entire restaurant is air-conditioned. Not only is the place comfortable, it looks very posh as well. I have posted their entire menu a number of times before and shall not do that again this time as there are so many pages to it. Please look into any one of my previous blogs on this place and you would be able to see it. 

Poori @ RM 1.90
Poori is something that we all love and I have tried this at a number of restaurants and in my opinion, these guy's do the best one in the Klang Valley. The bread is so soft and tasty, so much so it is even good to be eaten on it's own. Non greasy as well. The only setback would be the portion of Potato that they give which is quite stingy. If I were to rate this, I would definitely give it 9/10. 

Ghee Roast Thosai @ RM 3.10
Their Ghee Roast Thosai is definitely the best that I have tasted. It is huge and comes with a generous amounts of ghee. Crispy and it's so tasty. It also comes with two kinds of chutney and some Sambar. If you're one who loved Ghee Roast, do give it a try here and you'd definitely be impressed. My rating for this shall be 10/10. 

Bru Coffee @ RM 2.60
After a delicious meal, having a cup of Bru Coffee is a must and this again is a drink that is perfectly fixed at this restaurant. Again, this deserves a rating of 9/10. 

The Bill For The Evening
I have tried Ghee Roast and Poori at so many restaurants in the Klang Valley and I feel that Basil Leaves does it the best. Huge contrast with the rest and I always leave satisfied. If you happen to be in this part of town, please do give this place a try. Truly worth the money spent. 

Address: No. 85GG & 87GH, Jalan TKS 1, Taman Kajang Sentral, 43000 Kajang, Selangor.

Opening Hours: 0700 - 2230 Daily


  1. Dear Mr Venoth,

    I enjoy reading your blog, it's informative. I would like to thank you for calling our Sambar as Sambar and not Dhal Curry just to please the masses. Keep up the good job.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words of support. I always try using the Tamil names like poriyal, perattal, kulambu etc just to educate the non Tamil readers. :)

  3. I really love reading your blog, and thank you for posting the menu of basil leaves last time as I'm now a regular patron of the shop after reading your review on it. Keep up the good work and keep eating my friend!

    1. Thank you so much for the kind feedback. Truly appreciate it.

  4. 6 of us visited this restaurant on Monday at about 2pm after reading your blog. Ordered fish curry, fried fish, manchurian chicken, mutton curry and fried ladies fingers to go with white rice.

    It was simply amazing in flavour. Portions were slightly smaller than expected but I guess because we were hungry, there weren't anything left behind.

    Good food indeed . . Thanks very much Venoth !

    1. Wow, I am glad that you all loved the food at Basil Leaves. And Thank you so much for the kind feedback Jaaine. :)

  5. Their food is overpriced and so average. It is in Kajang not in a posh KL area. Their waiters are mostly grumpy. The aunt is the shop is nice. The uncle is bit creepy trying to take your pictures without your permission - even if that is to put in their website.

    Desperate times, we to this place.
