Just walked too have a lunch. The man in front of kumars with the knifes was very friendly and asks for coming. There was a buffet with different typs off chicken and pork. Everything was summed up when you had everything you wanted! Yummy food and 3$ for a full plate what you want is good!

Only in Cameron Highlands will one find roti canai cooked with strawberries. Something unique but worth a try at Rm5 a plate. The Vades were the best in town. Food is good and reasonably priced.

Nothing special; the usual mamak style restaurant, can get your thosai, roti Chennai, naan and tandoori chicken. Pretty much same taste as every other mamak in Tanah Rata. I did feel that my bill here was higher than what I would pay at a similar restaurant in KL?

The place was like any "mamak" restaurant you'd find in Malaysia. Service was good, but the food was just average. Pricey, for a "mamak" - we paid RM 43 for 2 Maggie-goreng, 2 mee-goreng, 4 hot teas and 1 vadai. Not a place I'd go back to

Tourist TRAP...it's a rip off place for tourist. They overcharge tourist compared to locals. They charged GST on hand written bill,no GST registration number. FOOD is more expensive compared to KL. FOOD taste is acceptable. PRICE is way too high for Cameron Standard.

They serve vegetarian fried rice and fried noodles as well. I ordered fried rice when i was paying a visit in Cameron Highlands. The fried rice tasted actually quite spicy yet it's still nice.

So many better places nearby. Our food was cold. Drinks had to be sent back. The food was not as described. The South Indian food was Chinese food with a few spices on top

We have eaten a dinner here and it has been the absolute low point of our holiday. We have dined in Indian restaurants about 10 times in a bit more than a week in KL, Langkawi and in Tanah Rata and they were all leagues better than Kumar's. The naan was tasteless, so was the tandoori chicken. The sauces, lassies... More
