We almost missed the turning into the tiny lane leading to Pia's the Padi but saw the signpost just in time. Driving down from Tanjong Rhu to Ulu Melaka about 5-10 min after the Gunung Raya turning, the turning to the restaurant is on the right side of the road.
On this weekday during the off-peak season, we were the only guests in the restaurant and Jimmy simply decided what dishes to cook for us after checking with us whether we had any dietary preferences (no... not really...) and how much spice the adults would like (we indicated a spice rating of 3 out of a 10 point scale). The next 20 minutes or so was spent soaking in the surroundings while waiting for the food which turned out to be: beef rendang, fish curry (a creamy kind of masala), butter chicken and vegetables, all accompanied by a generous serving of rice and crackers which my two girls (6 and 8) devoured. The food was well-done and reminded me of the curries I had in the UK. We rounded up the meal with a mango Lassi and the home-made chocolate cake and ice-cream (total cost approx. RM180). Overall, a most memorable and enjoyable meal. Those with children may want to bring insect repellent considering the location.
