pakeeza restaurant


we planned to break fast at Pakeeza, an indian restaurant. besides its bah's (my grandmother) 81st birthday!

as we entered around 6.45pm, we were greeted by friendly waiters, who had constant smiles, as if they were permanently carved on their faces. nevertheless, a warm welcome did made us feel comfortable for a dinner here. its not my first time though. this is in fact one of our favourite place to dine with my task force team. even auntie yan catered with them for her daughter (my cousin) sarah's wedding dinner.

although the place specialize in moghul cuisine, they served buffet ramadhan too with wide varieties of malay food and kuih. i never missed to eat my favourite there, their naan and tandoori chicken (ref pic: on my plate-- top second and third one from right). it was pretty nice, with a fragrant burnt aroma from the tandoori locked into it. i also specially loved their kuih ketayap. very nice than any other i have ever taste.

there were five of us including megat. so after addition of service charge and government tax, the bill came up to RM137. this meal was by far much more worthwhile than any other in the city. bigger portion, better taste, more variety. i doubt i can find a decent RM30 (adult) and RM7 (children) buffet ramadhan meal in an indian restaurant in kl for this portion. i guess to be fair, it isn't a head to head comparison.
