Sri Ananda Bahwan

Indian in Ipoh

This simple but choice-packed restaurant in Little India is part of a Malaysia-wide chain and is excellent value. Mop up chutney and dhal with a fluffy dosa, or order the generous banana-leaf lunch special, with mountains of rice and spiced veggies.

For dessert take away a box of barfi – fudge-like confectionery in flavours from cashew to chocolate – or some deep-fried, syrupy jalebi.
