We always go to Selvam every time we are in Melaka. They moved! The new shop is now next to the Indian DVD/video shop or near Public bank.

It was fairly busy when we arrived. It was 9 of us but they are very accommodated and quickly put tables together.

The food was same as before. Love the spicy squid. Their Biryani rice tasted so nice.

Unfortunately, nothing is not spicy so it was hard for the children. Our children loved dearly of their popodum.

This restaurant is about 100 meters from the Discovery Cafe. It is a no frills place with little decor and an open store front. I went for its simple but tasty food. I ordered the southern Indian food on a banana leaf; then added a piece of fish; a Thosi and a cup of milk tea. The service was fast; and the waiter even made some exaggerated gesture to let me take a picture. The fish was ok, the various sauces were good; and the Thosi was excellent. I enjoyed my meal with the milk-tea. It was well worth the trip.

Delicious Indian - Malay food. Not quite Indian but has an interesting Malaysian twist to it. Looked fairly hygienic (at least more so than some of the more grimy places down the road). Food tasted really good

from a loyal selvam customer .... please don't be fooled or tricked into thinking that the indian restaurant 'Sri Maja' which now occupies the building where Selvam USED to be, is the genuine thing because it's NOT ! Selvam has moved across the road by the traffic lights on the opposite corner, if you stand anywhere on the road junction you can't fail to see their name above the windows. Never accept second best

I found this place by chance, although I recognised the name from Lonely Planet. I had the vegetable thali (rice with light curry sauce/gravy,poppadoms and three types of salad) and added on a portion of chilli chicken too. The food came quickly, there was loads of it and it tasted superb! My entire meal (including an iced tea came) to 10RM, which is less than £2. Just amazing :)
