Best place to get the "Murtabak", i like it with the chicken. If you're just around the place then why not try the 100 years old recipe?

It was 26th Dec when we went to this restaurant. We had to queue up for over 30mins to get inside the restaurant. Once we were inside everything went smooth. Service was fast & food was good. I will gladly go there again.

Was looking at others on how they order. First, we went to the left restaurant, that's where we pick the food that we want (the service there I feel a bit cheecky). You gotta think what you want to order before reaching the serving table, since they are serving it rather impatiently. After getting food on a plate that we... More

We had Murtabak, the minced mutton and curry-spiced frittata, wrapped in a roti dough and fried, served with pickeld shallots and curry sauces. It was really nice! It was a stop as part of our food tour. Curries served were delicious-especially the beef.

Although slightly pricy, the portion sizes are quite huge and you end up leaving there full to the brim. I has the mutton curry and prawns and weren't that bad except for slightly cold. You do have to wait a little before being served but also downside would be ordering from one restaurant and taking the food to the other... More

Went to Hameediyah easily accessable via CAT (Central Area Transit) buses and stooping by at Chowrasta Station, they put up a very neat price tag so you may decide what you want to eat and custom to your need. Be sure to choose wisely since some of the item are a bit pricey for me as local, i just try... More

Went there around 2.30 and still had to wait for about an hour on the sidewalk under the hot sun before we were served. They had a variety of food and drinks There was also another rush for tables as it was full but managed to get a table finally. Food taste was a big let down despite all the... More

I went here to eat their murtabak which was tasty. They claimed as the oldest nasi kandar in the town. The history of this restaurant also written on one of the wall. The service was fast, and they open for 24 hours. But not all menu were available on the time I ordered.

It is probably me. I have had meals at various "nasi kandar" restaurants and when the opportunity to have one at this outlet presented itself, no time should be wasted. Queuing for a good 15 minutes for my turn to pick the dishes was to be expected. Had my meal..mutton, fish egg, squids, and honey chicken. Overall taste... well, something... More

Still one of the best in Georgetown. Nice cozy environment. The restaurant has two sections - one for food order and the other where you have your meal. Both sections are well maintained. Clean. Staffs were efficient in taking and delivering your order although queue was quite long when we got there.
