Banana Leaf Rice @ Devi’s Corner, Bangsar

I love going to Devi’s Corner when I’m hankering for a good thosai or roti telur bawang. They started serving Banana Leaf Rice a few months back but I only got around to trying it 2 weeks ago. Banana Leaf Rice is served on the 1st floor while the ground floor remains as the “mamak”. There were 5 side dishes to go with white rice served on top of a large banana leaf. I found them quite tasty, especially the red one on the left. Not sure what it is though – tomato sambar or tomato curry? The portions were pretty generous, unlike another “famous banana leaf rice place” nearby. There are three types of curry gravy to choose from – dal, chicken and fish curry.The papadam was freshly fried. Crunchy and very nice with curry-drenched rice. I was pleasantly surprised with their complimentary dessert – I think it’s a type of barfi (the yellow piece on the small metal place).Sis and I ordered a piece of fried chicken each (pardon the blur picture). Well-fried, the chicken was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. I liked it better than the often over-fried chicken from the other “famous banana leaf rice place”.

Lunch cost RM 32 for the 4 of us. That’s for 2 Banana Leaf Rice, 2 fried chicken, 3 thosai masala and 3 teh ais. Pretty reasonable don’t you think?

Ambiance: 7/10 (1st Floor)
Price: 7/10

Food: 7/10

Verdict: My new favourite place for Banana Leaf Rice.

Devi’s Corner
(Opposite Bangsar Village II)

    Hi simplegirl, thanks for dropping by. Yes, you should give their banana leaf rice a try! It’s quite worth the money. 😉

    Hmm… what is the “other famous banana leaf rice”? Cannot say the name one ah, lol! Could it be the same one whose USJ shop i just blogged about? They had overfried dried chicken too…LOL!

    Hehe…too close to Devi’s Corner ma. I don’t understand why they are so popular when the food is average and no QC!

    Hi Jinxy,

    Thanks for the comment and for dropping by! It was better than Nirvana at that the time I posted this. However, the quality has since dropped, and they simply charge customers as they like.

    I has to pay RM6 for the chicken after that! And they were very rude to customers. I've since stuck with Nirvana – prices are affordable and service is consistent. Nevermind the slightly over-fried chicken. >)

    Oh is it . Yeah i agree about the service in Nirvana is good and they are friendly too . The price also is reasonable . I always lepak there with my colleagues after work 🙂 .

    Yup, I like how quickly the food and workers are generally friendly!

    Hey there bangsar-babe,

    Ive been eating in Bangsar and Devi's Corner has been my all-time low cost indulging corner.After my Saturday dance and Sunday Yoga, i walk to Devi's for South Indian food and was never charge extra for it has been years eating there.

    Its a high possibility that you've been charged for the services. For example, if you were seated downstairs than its normal price while located upstairs are charged a little extra.They have their kitchen to cook for the food being served upstairs therefore prices are charged accordingly.

    Hope to meet you someday at Bangsar!

    i like this place too. More comfortable than “the other place nearby” and the food is pretty good. I do agree tho once or twice the food / service was inconsistent but it is still my go-to place for BLR. BTW i find the yellow lettering used in ur post is sometimes a bit hard to see. Maybe better use a solid colour for highlighting / emphasis instead? Cheers
