For many of us, there seems to be only two versions of Halal Indian cuisine served in this country. The high end, and the 24-hour mamak shops. There’s certainly a gap to fill isn’t it? That’s where restaurants like Ratha’s Famous Raub Curry fits in, a casual dining that serves just what we love most.

Ratha’s is a family own restaurant, and the original restaurant at Raub is one of the highest ranked eatery at the location on TripAdvisor, and this Damansara Uptown branch is operated by the second generation.

The restaurant is located at the side of Uptown facing LDP, which offers slightly better parking situations compared to the parking hell that is the “inside” of the commercial area. It is air conditioned, clean, and brightly lit, while offering a no-frill experience.

The menu is a simple laminated sheet, but offering is quite comprehensive. There’s seafood, poultry, meat, vegetable, and other individual dishes if you prefer not to go with steamed rice.

For dinner, we shared stirfry bendi, sambal squid, curry chicken, and fried lamb for the three of us, and they turned out to be quite delightful and properly flavored while not being overly spicy. I’d wished that we ordered their famous fish head curry, but perhaps that would be more fitting to a larger group.

Discuss : KY eats – Ratha’s Famous Raub Curry, PJ Uptown

  1. that fried lamb is the one that’s legendary! 🙂

  2. Ahh… save some fried lamb for me!

  3. I guess this is where people usually say Damansara Uptown? Ah yes! I see the address now. The stir fried bendi, sambal squid, curry chicken, fried lamb…all look really good. So if one wants to try the original, one would have to go all the way to Pahang?

    • suituapui: yess, there’s uptown, there’s old town, tho there’s no downtown PJ

  4. KY drive me to make curry when I see your entries on curries. When I visit my family in Hawaii drive to Kahuku Fiji Market and Curry House. Owner from Fiji and is Indian. His family run mom and pop general store and take out eatery.

    The supermarket in my neiborhood sell goat meats going to try making curry with it .

  5. Great recommendation. Thanks!

  6. Fried lamb and sambal squid for me plssssss!

  7. I’ve tried a lot of their stuff that’s available during breakfast time and they’re all good. But I’ve not had these dishes with rice (available for lunch and dinner) with the exception of curry chicken…and their signature fried lamb I heard is really good. I’ve even cooked curry chicken and fish head curry at home using their pastes with success! 😉

  8. Heard that their nasi lemak is quite decent, you can try that next round.

    Lamb here is nice. But you should also try daging merah loqstaq in Sg Penchala, KY. Lotsa hype on the internet.
