Restoran Al Sarifa: My Favorite Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Restoran Al Sarifa

The Restoran Al Sarifa in Kuala Lumpur is one of my favorite dining experiences I have had up to this point in life. To say I like this restaurant is an understatement. I and my companion went to this restaurant multiple times across a couple day trip to Kuala Lumpur. It was my first taste of the delicious Naan cheese bread with different sauces to dip it in. It was also my first taste of the incredibly flavorful tandoori chicken. This chicken leaves everything orange so keep that in mind when eating it!

Delicious Food in Kuala Lumpur

The pictures below show some of my personal favorite food from the time I was in Malaysia. This was my first introduction to that tasty looking bread and orange charcoaled chicken down there. Needless to say this very dining experience shown below is what set the stage for me trying many other restaurants in Kuala Lumpur and around Malaysia that serve the same food. I have to say thought that this place was the best. I think that’s because this was the first place I ever tried it and also because there customer service as well as little detail in the spices and flavors compared to their competitors really make this specific restaurant stand out. Kudos to them and I can’t wait to eat this again one day.

Tandoori Chicken & Cheese Naan!

Tandoori Chicken and Cheese Naan(bread) are what I ordered every time at this restaurant. I would also order the delicious cheesy naan bread and then dip it in one of the sauces provided. The sauces are full of flavor and soak the bread like a sponge combining all of these things into flavorful heaven. The green sauce served generally has a bit of a minty flavor and is a bit yoghurty. The orange sauce is more of a curry sauce and has bits of pulled chicken in it. To wash it all down without losing any of the foods flavors, I would order a milk tea usually with ice.

What else is on the menu?

Aside from the 2 delicious items detailed above we also see a giant French toast looking thing. That was another type of bread that was a bit soft, but honestly didn’t have too much flavor. It was still nice to dip in the sauces though. You can view a more clear picture of the menu over here at this link. They have plenty of other bread options ranging from cheese to a variety of other flavors like garlic, butter and some local flavors that I wasn’t fully aware of what they were(Caya, Biasa, Cendawan).

Aside from bread you can order plenty of drinks like nescafe, hot or iced tea or other coffees. They also have many yoghurt drinks, juice as well as some syrup drinks called Limau/Sirap.

Ordering Random Things

I’m someone who doesn’t generally like to always copy what everyone else is doing so here is a word of advice. Don’t panic if your google translate isn’t translating the menu correctly. I would encourage you to just order something random and see what happens. That’s what I did with this flakey bread thing below. I don’t even know what it was called and honestly it was nothing special, but at the very least it did look very interesting. So just order someone and see what comes out. If you hate it you hate it, but maybe you will discover something new you didn’t know before and isn’t that the point of taking a trip?

Orange Fingers!

If you opted for the tasty tandoori chicken then I’m sure your fingers will end up orange like mine. I consider this more of an honor than an embarrassment or annoyance. It shows that the food was delicious and worth the dirtiness! It’s not always bad to wear your food if indeed it tasted very delicious…
