Blessed Thaipusam, my fellow Malaysians. As part of the first festive public holiday of the year, we at Fork decided to share with our top picks for the best Banana Leaf spots in or near Batu Caves.
SS CORNER BANANA LEAF RESTAURANT
Located next to the MRR2 Highway, heading towards Kepong and serves banana leaf dishes for 24 hours. This restaurant has received multiple good reviews on various websites.
Address: 111, Jalan SBC 1, 68100 Batu Caves, Selangor
SELVAM BANANA LEAF RESTAURANT
A bit of a distance from the Batu Caves area but it’s worth spending an extra travelling 10 to 15 minutes from the famous Malaysian Temple, to Taman Baru Selayang. This restaurant is open everyday from 7am to 11.30pm.
Address: A2-G &A3-G,Wira Business Center,Jalan Besar SELAYANG BARU, 68100 Kampong Selayang, Malaysia
APPACHI’S BANANA LEAF & CURRY HOUSE
Another spot which is a bit further off from in Batu Caves is Appachi’s, which located in Taman Seri Gombak.
The area is known for its crazy traffic jams as there is only way in if you’re coming from the Ampang side of the MRR2. So it’s best to make a u-turn at the Greenwood intersection, and enter from Jalan Makmur.
Appachi’s Banana Leaf & Curry House is open everyday from 8am to 10pm.
Address: No. 21, Jalan SG 3/1, Taman Sri Gombak, 68100 Batu Caves, Selangor
RESTORAN CHETTY NADU BATU CAVES
One of the more famous spots as this restaurant is also known for their fried mee dish.
It is located about a kilometer away from Batu Caves and is easily accessible from the MRR2, coming the Kepong side.
If you are coming from Ampang, just make a u-turn at the infamous Jalan Kuching roundabout and take the final exit.
Address: Batu Caves No. 15G, Plaza Umno, Jalan Batu Caves, Taman Batu Caves, 68100
AMOS CURRY HOUSE
Another restaurant that rests in Taman Seri Gombak. However it has better accessibility as it is located in Jalan Damai, which is the first road you’ll see if you enter from the second exit of the MRR2.
Amos Curry House is open from 6am to 12am, everyday.
There you have it folks. If you’re in the Batu Caves and looking for a satisfying banana leaf lunch or dinner, do check these restaurants and let us know your thoughts and opinions about the places. Also if, you know of a banana leaf spot worth bragging, do inform us and we will do a review. That’s it from us at Fork. Have a Blessed Thaipusam, Malaysia.
