Best South Indian Restaurant In Kuala Lumpur

In 1924, two enterprising brothers with a culinary background set up Brahmin Coffee Club - a small restaurant on Lalbagh Fort Road in Bangalore to serve coffee and idlis. With a focus on hygiene, cleanliness, discipline and practices the restaurant grew in popularity. Subsequently, the restaurant was renamed 'Mavalli Tiffin Rooms', or MTR for short, after the location where it was situated. MTR shifted to its present location on Lalbagh Road, Bangalore, India in 1960 and has since been much loved by food lovers and the public alike.


Today, MTR is being managed by Harishchandra Maiya’s children Hemamalini Maiya, Vikram Maiya and Arvind Maiya. They have focused on expanding MTR's nearly 90-year old business to bring it's food to the world. There are 10 MTR restaurants in India and abroad, including Singapore, Dubai and Muscat. It is now Malaysia's turn to experience the legendary taste of MTR’s south Indian delicacies that have delighted India for close to nine decades.
