    Our guest house owner had recommended this restaurant to us, and it was rated as number two Indian Restaurant in Melaka on Trip Advisor but it turned out to be the worst meal we ate in Melaka. My wife's noodles were very oily and my dosa lacked taste. Sure, it was cheap enough, but it doesn't matter how cheap it is if you don't enjoy the food. The restaurant was busy and most of the customers were foreigners. Service was good and i must mention that the fresh orange juice and lassi were also good, but we would never return here again. Cannot understand why this restaurant is rated so highly, maaybe we just had bad luck.

    Despite being given information regarding good Indian Restaurants by the owner of our guest house we decided to dine at the Boss Curry House as it was full of Indians when we passed by, a sure sign that it must be good. We returned an hour later when tables were available. We had a fresh orange juice, a lassi, a cheese dosa which w enormous, a vegetable dish and a couple more that i cannot remember. Three dips came with the dosa, a curry, a chutney, and a milky yogurt type of sauce. All were excellent and cost next to nothing. The restaurant was only opened recently so the guest house owner had not yet dined there, but he promised to give it a try after my recommendation.

    Vazhai Elai Banana Leaf Restaurant: Delicious Traditional Indian Dishes

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant being setup in an average ways. Very clean with great service. The staff here are very friendly. Most importantly, why I am giving this restaurant a high rating because of its food. The traditional taste of Indian food offered here is superb. Few choices of curry dishes taste really good. These curry dishes goes well with rice or even the Tossei/Chapati/'Roti Canai'. The seating being neatly arranged in this small space area but they do have a special air-condition room. As for myself, I regularly had my meal here with my Indian friends as I l really love the tossei. I highly recommend this restaurant for those who like Indian dishes and also who ever wanted to taste a really good tossei. I also noticed that this restaurant has been officially opened by one the well known Malaysian Minister.

    Favorite Dish: The most special and delicious dish here that I like the most is the tossei. A basic tossei with Coconut based 'Chutney' make this place so special for me.

    Address: Vazhai Elai Banana Leaf Restaurant, Bandar Melaka

    Directions: On the main road where Kampung Jawa is at the back.

    Selvam: Chettynad Tamil Restaurant

    by cochinjew Written Apr 17, 2006

    Very Tamil restaurant popular with sari clad visitors from the Interior. Good Chettynad style food. Banana leaves and the ambience unchanged, from the looks of it

    Favorite Dish: I order the lunch which comes on a banana leaf, with rice and several vegetable curries and then ask for fish curry . you can also for chicken or mutton. and mango lassi to boot.
    rice and vegetable curries are replenished as you like but for me, one round is enough.

    lunch time crowd at Selvam selvam chetty rest in malacca menu du jour and tout l jour
