The food is very good, very tasty and spicy, according with expectations for indy food, the Manga Lassi is spectacular, is a must try. The place is not so clean, or at least is was not when we arrived, around 9:30 PM.

Came with two friends and we all tried different chicken dishes. Everything was spicy, and the rice sides are really enough rice for two people or more. Service was not great, but the chicken was super tender.

Very local Indian inspired dishes. The almond milk drink and tandoori dishes are the most popular choice for those who are into one of the typical Penang diversified food choices.

This was the BEST Indian food I had in my life. Okay, I also was really hungry but seriously: try their tandoori set with garlic and cheese naan. You won't regret it. The watermelon juice is delicious as well! The staff was not necessarily friendly,...More

3 times when I visited in Penang, I always come here for breakfast with bread and a glass of tea tarik. It is my favourite drink, warm in the morning. They also offer other foods like Nasi Kandar. The price is not too much expensive...More

We sat upstairs in the restaurant and had a brilliant meal! We usually just eat the yummy street food but we treated ourselves to a restaurant and it is one of our favourites in Georgetown! Kadhai chicken curry, nan bread and rice! Heaven!

Hello Restoran Kapitan. I would like very much to see if we can talk. I am interested in a Kapitan restoran where I live. I want to learn how you make good food and make it here in my city. You food is the best I had in Pilou Penang, so hope I can make it for some people here.
