Restaurant Jaipur Curry House – Banana Leaf Rice @ TTDI

What do you do on the eve (lunch hour) of Chinese New Year?
Well, eat banana leaf rice of course.

And it seems that most Chinese people had the same idea!

While designated members of the families are busy preparing for their reunion dinners, the others congregated at malls, mamaks and Indian shops for their sustenance.

Out of the lack of options, I joined the fray, as I do every year when the CNY festives looms near.

My lunch cost me RM11.50. I asked the fella who calculated it what justified RM11.50.
His reply: Chicken 2 small pieces RM3, drumstick RM4.50 and small rice with 2 small portions of vegetables RM4.

Ah well….
Truth to be told, food wasn’t too bad. I think Devi’s Corner at TTDI (just down the road at the corner from here btw) fares better though.

On another visit we had the banana leaf rice set. The basic (vegetarian set ) comes with rice, 3 types of vegetables and some papadoms.

Not bad for RM5.00/set.
Being typical gluttons we added on a fish (RM5.00) and a small plate of chicken (RM5.00).

The curries, the fish and the chicken were all fresh, moderate on the grease (anyhow Jaipur is south indian, where the culinary style can be a bit heavy on the oil) and the vegetables are not overcooked. Everything here bordered between good and decent.

Last but not least, we washed it all down with some fresh, sour & appetizing rasam.

There was nothing particularly memorable here at Jaipur. I came here as I was trying to avoid the more popular BLR outlets on the eve of a public holiday. But my overall dining experience was above average in terms of quality, service, and pricing. Errmm, ok, maybe not the pricing.  😉

    Gosh, it’s like all food is expensive these days. I guess the economical option really seems to be: buy food from tesco and cook sendiri, rite. ok, I need to learn how to cook, just in case! 😀

    The food may be good but the service dished out by the plump Indian guy behind the cook is really horrendous ,bordering “reverse apartheid”. I am a resident of TTDI and a regular to the rest. Every time I will order to “ta pau” for my kids. I noticed each time when I order, other customers who turned up after me being served first despite my order came earlier. I choose to control my anger until last week on Thaipusam day.On that day I was the first to turn up to order at around 8.00am in the morning and ordered 4 roti telur and 2 roti canai. The cook prepared my order and put in in the tray. Subsequently there were 4 non-Chinese customers turned up to order. To my dismay, the 4 customers were served first by this plump Indian guy leaving me the last . I was really furious and gave him a piece of my mind. In all my 46 years living in Malaysia and I never felt so discriminated until this incident. The plump Indian guy is a racist [email protected]#$*h and I promised myself I won’t patronise this restaurant again, no matter how good the food is.

      OH my.. I’m so sorry to hear that though Í’m not surprised. Yea, I agree. If you do experience such cr*p, pls do tell them off! And if I were you, i wont patronise them again either!

    The service is just getting worse everyday. The staffs are rude and the boss… hhmm 2 x 5 only. I’ve realized the food quality and specially the service has gone down the drain. Don’t waste your time going here, i’ll personally recommend the new Curry Leaf Restaurant in Uptown. Better than this shitty place any point of time.

    Hey there, just came across your review. Just a tiny little thing. Jaipur is technically the largest city and capital of Rajashtan which is in the Northern India. So, it’s basically Northern Indian not South as you mentioned. Btw, your food reviews are really good. Good day 😉

      Hi Sharon thanks for the info!
      I’ve not explored india at all and there’s so much more for me to learn about its culture and cuisines.. but the Jaipur restaurant – have you been there?
      It’s very banana leaf based food – and didn’t seem Northern at all.
      But of cos I could be mistaken.
      Maybe I’ll drop in again and ask the staff 🙂
