Every now and then I tend to crave for Indian makan at Race Course Road. And moore often then not, I return to my favourite, The Banana Leaf Apolo.
One reason I love about Indian makan at this area is the free-flow rice, two vegetables and papadum. Can be considered as a vegetarian meal on its own! The briyani featured fluffy long grains of basmati rice that were light and gently spiced with cloves, star anise, cardamon etc.
Their most popular dish is probably the Curry Fish Head ($22 for small). The flesh was moist and the curry an aromatic blend of spices with a slight tang.
We also ordered the Black Squid ($9 for small) which was deliciously cooked in its own ink. Wonderful with plenty of rice. Moohehe.
While I usually go for the Marsala Chicken, it was the Tandoori Chicken ($12 for half) we had this time round. Lovely smoky aroma from the grilling. Best enjoyed while it's still hot!
And no. We didn't kena strip searched lah. LOL.

Chew On This: They now have i-pads on some tables to take orders. Looks like this traditional Indian restaurant is going a bit high-tech!
