Laxshmi Bhavan Indian Restaurant - (SS14, Subang Jaya) Selangor
Its unavoidable, it just happens. Food eventually is the central topic before lunch time. Laxshmi Bhavan the colleague kept mentioning and the rest of us jumped in and said "Lets go today" And so, four of us in one car (to avoid traffic-parking madness) to arrive before 12.15pm. Clean, neat and organised the ambiance but just so as another Indian eatery. Cleanliness I must repeat again or maybe too soon to tell because the lunch time crowd hasn't arrived and that I didn't use the toilet. Speaking about food, aplenty of the ready on the self dishes, between the vegetarian and non-vegetarian selection and the fried things (chicken, fish and chicken). The way to the tummy - stand in the queue, look-see-look-see at the dishes, scoop and over the plate of rice and sit at any of the empty tables. Thereafter, we had to call for rasam, tairu (yoghurt) and papadam and drinks, unanimously, sky juice.
While tucking in, we agreed food is no doubt tasty, flavourful, not salty and cooked with the essential Indian ingredients such as curry powder, chilli powder, spices. curry leaves,coconut, dried chillies, lentils etc etc. The crispy fried veggies, crispy of course and chicken tender and juicy (chicken varuval/dry style and kicap chicken). But-but-but, sambal (egg sambal) you will be disappointed if you are comparing to authentic Malay sambal and to say these dishes were unique or I have not tasted before, sorry I won't. Service also a little let down. Instead of us calling to order the drinks, they should come over and ask. However, the variety is plentiful which I presume why customers were walking in non-stop after 12.30pm.
