Restoran Ismail @ Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Kuala Lumpur
Restoran Ismail is a restaurant that has been around for more than three decades. Located in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, this restaurant has made a name for itself and is mostly sought for their Briyani. Despite there being many restaurants that sell Briyani, the preparation at Restoran Ismail is quite unique and has a taste of it's own.
The Restaurant In TTDI
It's quite easy to locate this restaurant in Taman Tu Dr Ismail. They are located quite close to the Fire Brigade and Celcom. Being located along the main road that comes into TTDI, that has given them another advantage in terms of location. The restaurant has got a lovely design and is good for singles as well as families. Once you are here, you could just order the dishes at your table itself. If you're in the mood to try out more dishes, then I would recommend heading to their food counter and selecting those add on items that you would like to have.
Regardless of the type of Briyani that you go for, Dhalcha and Cucumber Acar are compulsory items that would be served. Both are prepared according to traditional methods and I must confess that they are quite authentic in taste. Quality if ingredients used are also premium ones and that ensures that the taste is consistent. My rating for both the above items shall be 9/10.
Mutton Briyani Rice Set @ RM 16.50
When you order their Mutton Briyani Set, it comes with a plate of Plain Briyani Rice and some Mutton Perattal on another smaller saucer. Their Briyani Rice itself is so good and the fragrance is awesome. Even taste wise, it is so good to be eaten on it's own. I would rate their rice at 8/10. Their Mutton is also equally good and they are usually lean cuts without any bones. Again, the Masala is just amazing and goes so well with the rice. My rating for their Mutton shall be 9/10.
Chicken Briyani @ RM 14.50
As for their Chicken Briyani, you could choose to have a large piece of Fried Chicken which is one of their top sellers or even Kurma Chicken. Knowing that it is their top seller, I decided to go for the previous and it was a choice that I did not regret. The Fried Chicken was so crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside. The marination was simply perfect and it was definitely a taste to remember. My rating for this shall be 9/10. Besides the Dhalcha and Cucumber Acar, Appalam is also provided with all Briyani sets.
If you're a fan of Briyani, I would recommend visiting Restoran Ismail that is located in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Kuala Lumpur. They have been around for more than three decades and their signature Chicken Briyani and Mutton Briyani are a must try. Good food, reasonable prices and speedy service.
Address: No. 22, Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad, Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur.
