Indian Food at Malacca-

Hola foodies/travellers! Presenting Episode-02 of Travel&Spice for your dose of spicy travel, where travellers share interesting stories about their favourite meal, restaurant or food encounters.

Today, Bronwyn Leeks from Smiths Holiday Road shares a beautiful Indian dining experience at Malacca, Malaysia. Do check out their family travel blog that shares inclusive and accessible adventures across the world.

Over to Bron…

The UNESCO city of Malacca, lies south of the capital of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. It takes 2 hours to arrive by bus from the airport. Malacca is famous for its street art, river, colonial history and of course it’s amazing food.


With such a blend of many cultures, there are some amazing cuisines to try when visiting this historic city. It is an easy city to spend a few days and very walkable. We were staying in the old town area just by the river which was the perfect spot to walk along the river and discover many street arts, meet local people and sit at many of the cafes looking onto the water.


For dinner, we chose a restaurant just down from our accommodation on a street corner just opposite the Little India area. We were all excited to try the vegetarian set which was presented on a banana leaf: 3 different curries, rice, pappadam and a raita. We ate with our hands and drank an amazing mango lassi too. This meal cost RM 8, which is around 2.50 AUD.

Restaurant: Selvam

Address: No. 2 Jalan Temenggong, Melaka 75000, Malaysia

We ate here 3 times in 5 days as it was so great!

Make a note, guys. Thanks to Smiths Holiday Road, you now know where to head to for a finger-licking (quite literally) Indian meal in Malaysia.

  1. That’s a pretty cheap price for what sounds like a really delicious meal. Papadum are almost always on my list when I visit my local Indian restaurant.

  2. Loved the smile on kids face. Indian food is no doubt very tasty and it’s a treat to find it. I have noted Smith’s Holiday for my next Malaysia trip 🙂

  3. I can’t believe how cheap the food was there – especially considering it looks incredibly tasty! Love raita too – it’s my favourite thing to order when eating indian food.

  4. I love Malaysian food so much! Goodness I’m always reading your posts before dinner time. I’ve only been to Langkawi, Malaysia, but Malacca seems to be the place I should go to next! Great post by Bronwyn!
