“One of the must eat nasi kandar!”
Review of DEEN MAJU

Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 August 2018 via mobile

There was already a long queue when we arrived at 3 pm. This odd hour opening time nasi kandar restaurant (it opens at 2.30 pm) does not disappoint. Parking was non existence so park elsewhere legally or police will issue a summon or worst, tow your car away. During our time at the restaurant, police sirens and loud police speakers blared asking patrons to move their cars away. We were lucky to find a parking spot along Lebuh Cecil, about 10 minutes walk away, and a kind local couple sold us a one hour parking ticket. The food?
It was worth the hassle. After waiting in line for 15 minutes, we were served with one of the best nasi kandar in town. We order its signature dish nasi with ayam goreng berempah with sambal kelapa. We also top it up with telur sotong and okra. Marvelleous taste! All was cooked with perfectly blended spices. The chicken was fresh and crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside. The telur sotong was soft and melt in mouth. Perfect combination!
To top it all was the price. With teh 'o' ice, it cost only RM12.60!
Certainly recommend locals and tourists to give this restaurant a try.

There was a long queue but there is a great system to get the food out to the customers quickly. Fried chicken is freshly cooked as there was high demand. The most outstanding feature of this food joint is the gravy. The mix of a few types of gravy on rice is just the absolute best.

Best nasi kandar i have tried so far. With the amount of people queuing outside the restaurant at all time, you know that it is something special. Plenty of place to sit, price is reasonable, queue is moving very fast.

Pick your own dish and they will mix the gravy for you
Is quite standard that people will order plain rice + fried chicken(is a must) + other dish. Pay after you finish your meal.

Parking can be tricky (park at the road side just before reaching the restaurant)
Avoid weekend and lunch or dinner time (Less people)

Order:
Nasi + Ayam Goreng + Telur Mata + Kuah Campur + Bendi + Sirap Limau

= RM8.70

Please tell me if there’s any restaurant in Malaysia that can give this kind of price for the same amount of food; that also taste good.

To note; the queue line can be quite long on weekends, better come on weekdays around 3-5 ish.

Parking spot; park at your own risk.
