Sri Nirvana Maju, Bangsar Baru

I finished work a little late last week and felt like having banana leaf rice. My favourite BLR place, Devi’s Corner closes at 9pm, so I was left with Sri Nirvana Maju (since I didn’t feel like driving out of Bangsar).I had the banana leaf rice and a piece of fried chicken. I love my rice laden with curry (nasi banjir) and I like the fish and chicken curry combo best. As usual, the chicken was overfried. The skin was crispy, but the chicken was dry except for the center. o_0 The banana leaf rice cost RM5 while the fried chicken cost RM3. Price-wise, it is cheaper than Devi’s Corner, but the latter offers a better selection of side dishes and juicier chicken.

Ambiance: 5.5/10
Price: 7.5/10
Food: 6.5/10
Verdict: Decent banana leaf rice but the chicken tends to be over-fried.

    The arrogant brother n sister team runs the shop! The brother( short med built) always at the cashier counting money frequently! Once we complimented on the fresh cut rose blooms at his counter top,he replied they are Gd hearted souls and that’s the reason the roses look good and Not for Others!! In another incident,A slightly taller fairer man,Indian National also sits at the Cashier counter and is a Brahmin woman chaser! Once a friend of mine was sitting at another table and he was gleaming with a big smile and frequently approached only her for any further orders! In fact he was even slapped by someone once! For your info,The present price of NIRVANA MAJU has escalated so much they do not serve even plain water to customers!They charge for it too! When you realise the price increase and ask the cashier for the breakdown, he snobishly replies you are getting fresh food n you have a price to pay! Mind you, they only serve basic foods already prepared early in the morning. Various meats and seafood are marinaded in the same masalas and deep fried when an order takes place. So patrons feel So much joy that they are getting great Fresh indian Foods! Truly it’s just basics! The only jolly Good truth is they are sitting on a prime location! That’s the only reason they are minting for their basics. Much better Indian restaurants sit on Lorong Maarof and you are spoilt for choices and great value for money and souls! Then Why patronise NIRVANAS? It truly SUCKS!!
