Home Food Reviews Leaf Dining @ Solaris Mon’t Kiara

I’ve been eating quite a bit of Indian food, since I’m featuring Indian cuisine for the November issue of my FACES column. Here’s another discovery I made (ok, I didn’t really discover this. rif told me about it) in Solaris Mon’t Kiara – Leaf Dining. I actually wanted to eat at Little Korea, but he persuaded me to try the briyani here.I’m glad he did – I enjoyed the food. Mutton briyani (RM12) was good value for money. It was a pretty generous portion with abundant chunks of lamb in a thick curry sauce. For small eaters, I would recommend sharing this.The rice was more intensely flavoured compared to the other briyani versions I’ve eaten. Correct me if I’m wrong…but I think Southern Indian food uses a lot more spices and is less creamy compared to Northern Indian food. The pickled onions yogurt was tangy and refreshing.rif ordered the vegetarian banana leaf thali set meal (RM5.50) and a piece of fried chicken (RM5). The presentation was a lot better, and it was tastier than the two banana leaf rice shops in Bangsar Baru. We both liked the fish curry — it was thick, fiery and well-infused with spices.The fried chicken was reputed to be good (according to rif and a friend). It was nicely marinated and freshly fried, but the portion was so small! I could easily eat two.

Service was warm and friendly. The waiters were smiling all the time and they happily gave me more curry to go with my briyani. I liked that the place had air-conditioning, so I didn’t walk out sweating. Prices are quite affordable, considering the large portions and location.
