I've long been a fan of the well-known Restoran Kapitan just opposite, but was disappointed to find how small their portions have got in the last few years, so decided to give Ros Mutiar a try instead a couple of times on my last visit. It's a fairly typical Indian 'nasi kandar' style restaurant (a buffet selection of meat and... More

This review is for their restaurant as well as their guesthouse upstairs. Firstly, i ate plenty of times here. The food is almost as good as the very popular kapitan's (located opposite). May be not the tandoori or naan. But what's to be noted is this is a cheaper alternative. Has a very friendly vibe. The chef and the manager... More

This restaurant was awesome and would highly recommend! It's easy to walk past a place like this as there are many like it in Penang which seem to offer similar things. This one was awesome though- delicious authentic Indian food- so tasty and well cooked and very very good value for money! They have vegeatarisn options too- the veggie platter... More

Tasty food, OK atmosphere. There is so much variety here that it can be overwhelming. We told the manager that we wanted nasi kandar and please include mutton. He said he would make a nice selection for us, and if we don't like it, it's free. We each received mutton curry, a whole spicy prawn (eat the entire thing), an... More

We ate during one afternoon but unfortunately we were too early for the tiffin menu. We found the naan, chicken and curry dishes to be very good and glad to say we did not suffer any digestions issues after like some other reviews. The masala chai both hot and cold were very good along with their lassi. Admittedly the place... More

I specifically requested 2 things: 1) garlic cheese naan (not crispy or hard like it was reheated with microwave or overcooked). I emphasized that i didnt want any hard or crispy naan bread. 2) fresh soya milk, nothing added. #2 was butchered, but because i later found out they didnt have fresh soy milk.. Ok. Fine. They went ahead and... More

I ordered Nasi Lemak early this morning and they brought me a cold plate looking like left-overs from other customers or food from yesterday. I wish I made a picture... I am still wondering why I ate it. Also, the lasi are made of syrup instead of real fruit and the roti cheese that my girl ordered wasn't that good... More

We went to ros mutiara for dinner on the second day of being in Georgetown. Alas on the night itself, two of us started having diarrhea and vomited. The rest followed. By the morning four of us had shown signs of food poisoning. Now they are still in recovery and it's been four days. Avoid the nasi kandar at all... More
