Excellent Indian restaurant in the heart of George Town. Loved my biryani and the naan bread was perfection. Restaurant is lively and service is prompt. Excellent value as well.

They probably have the best naan in George Town - especially the cheese naan. I think we went there three times while staying in George Town. The Dhal dishes were also really good. I can really recommend this place.

Came at 8.30 am, there’s only roti canai available. We asked for kuah kari, they said its still not prepared yet. The staff also not friendly.

Great Indian food, make sure to get the cheesy Naan! Also the chicken Biryani is the bob as well. Service could've been improved but other than that, great place to go!

We visited Kapitan four years ago and didn't have a great experience so we tried it again recently and were pleasantly surprised. We opted for a naan and tandoori chicken with some cold drinks and it was nice - as with any restaurants in Little...More
