[Kuala Lumpur] Banana Leaf Rice @ Restaurant Sri Nirwana Maju, Bangsar

It was a fine Sunday afternoon that everybody is looking for lunch.
We dropped by at Bangsar area to look for lunch as was particularly attracted by the long queue outside this restaurant called Restaurant Sri Nirwana Maju, which apparently been very famous for their banana leaf rice around the neighbourhood.

Restaurant Sri Nirwana Maju is located at the very busy area of Bangsar, it could be very difficult to find a parking if you are here during peak hours especially lunch time. There are a few banana leaf rice restaurant around the same area, so do not get confuse by them, though all the food they serve are about the same.

If you are looking for authentic Indian Food / Banana Leaf Rice in Kuala Lumpur,

Restaurant Sri Nirwana Maju would be the one. 

The queue was rather long that many people stood outside the restaurant and even under the sun just to wait for a table. You might want to consider going early or during off peak hours if you don't want to wait in queue. But I didn't regret queuing for it.

Restaurant Sri Nirwana Maju is somewhere around Bangsar Village Mall 1 or Bangsar Village Mall 2, you just gotta get to that area and slowly find the place. It may be a bit difficult to find but you just gotta find it if you are craving for it.

This is how they you will be served! There will be plain white rice, 3 types of vegetables (cucumber, long beans and fried bitter gourd) maybe vary every day and 3 types of curry(vegetarian curry, fish curry or chicken curry). That's not all! You will also get papadam(my favourite) and their signature homemade fried salted dried chili & pickles too.
A set of banana leaf rice that consists all the delicious sides with free-refill basis at only RM7.50!!! and furthermore this is in KL! Not even in Penang you can get such cheap great deal!

Ready to dig in with your hands?
You can also ask for cutleries if you do not want to eat with hands, but what's the fun of having banana leaf rice then?

There are variety of side dishes available at the restaurant too. We have ordered the Sotong with Onions at RM9.50 per plate and judging on the portion we get it is rather pocket-friendly.
Not to mention that the sotong was properly seasoned and rather flavourful, but also very fresh and chewy, just cooked to perfection and at the right texture. Many people out there could not get a squid cooked perfectly.

I've also ordered another chicken dish and it was Chicken Masala if I'm not mistaken. I also forgot the price of this dish, should be about RM8.00 for a plate of 5pieces of chicken. The chicken was soft and tender after long hours of cooking, the sauce just went deep into the meat that made the chicken so flavourful, though it could be a little bit salty.

Also I've found a video interview about Restaurant Sri Nirwana Maju which was published recently by CoconutTV. It was the owner that was interviewed and she was really nice!
She personally work for the restaurant and run the restaurant with her staffs, she was friendly and welcoming though the restaurant was really busy!

My overall experience at the Restaurant Sri Nirwana Maju was a lovely one. I would really want to go back and revisit this restaurant one day. So any of you would like to bring me there again?
