My one night stay at Corus Hotel did not include dinner. Not wanting to splurge on Japanese meal at Komura in the hotel which is known for its buffet and unique ambiance, I decided to drive out to a destination where I had been longing to try.

Ampang Tandoori and Naan Stall

… and that destination was none other than a stall which is said to serve delicious tandoori chicken and naan bread. It is situated opposite of Ampang Point (across the main road) and the stall is sharing the vicinity with other food stalls. Unlike other hawker places which I have been to, you are free to sit at any table and order anything from those stalls and they will serve you without any objection.

Tandoori Chicken in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur

This particular stall (some called it Arumugam Tandoori & Naan) has been around for years and with its specialities, they only serve a variety of naan breads, tandooris and masala dishes. If you are craving for roti, you can proceed to another stall… which I did to order a piece of roti pisang.

Famous Tandoori Chicken in Ampang

Apart from the roti pisang, the food didn’t take long to arrive. First up was the tandoori chicken (RM5) and butter naan (RM2). Slightly charred at the edges, the meat was pretty flavourful albeit dry (for the breast part). It is definitely better than any other regular mamak stall at your neighbourhood… unless you are near to Pak Putra in Malacca.

Naan Bread in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur

The butter naan was surprisingly thin… thinner than I usually had at other places. But it was not as thin as chapatti. Nonetheless, it was still fluffy soft and fragrant from the overdose of melted ‘butter’ on top of the naan.

Roti Pisang and Chicken & Beef Satay

Crispy with loads of sliced banana hidden beneath, the roti pisang was pretty good. The chicken and beef satays (from other stall – RM9 for 10 sticks) were rather ordinary. The peanut sauce was wee bit watery and lack of kick.
