3 Indian restaurants in KL to try this weekend

Since Deepavali and Diwali (yes, there is a slight difference between the two) are four- and five-day celebrations, the festive spirit continues on into the weekend. After you’ve attended the open houses and indulged in these popular snacks, move on to any of these Indian restaurants in town for a true feast that each stand out on its own. 



nadodi kl

The word means nomad in Malayalam and this fine dining restaurant describes its offerings as Nomadic cuisine. Try any of their degustation menus and you’ll understand why. Every dish will bring you on a journey of flavours from the southern lands of India but the execution is a modern and creative interpretation. Our recommendation: Prepare your palate and your stomachs for the 10-mile journey.

Address: Lot 183, 1st Floor, Jalan Mayang, Off Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, 50450 Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours: Dinner only with three services (closed on Sun)
