A couple weeks ago I found myself at the South of KL for some work related assignment near lunch time. Naturally, after our appointment, we went to the most famous nari briyani restaurant for some well deserved lunch.

Our destination was none other than Kafe Beriani Gam Putrajaya.

Getting there can be a bit tricky as the restaurant is located right beside SKVE, you can only get onto SKVE from the restaurant but not the other way around. However, Waze/Google Map is your friend, so do use the link below for your convenience.

It is a bit of a road side set up with upgraded roof and rather proper table and chairs, there’s also some ceiling fans, though one should still prepare to sweat it out a bit on a hot afternoon.

Ordering is simple, get your nasi beriyani, then pick the type of meat you want to go with. There’s normal ayam (chicken), ayam kampung (village chicken), daging (beef), kambing (lamb), and our favorite – kambing kuzi – all of us ended up ordering the same, with an additional ayam kampung as center plate.

The briyani rice itself were perfectly cooked, fragrant and delicious enough you can have this even just with some sauce. As for the kambing kuzi, we love the tenderness and the rather heavy tasting marinate that makes it a little sweetish, compliments the rice perfectly. The accompanying sambal was on point too.

Expect to pay some RM 20 or more per pax, but if you love briyani rice, this is definitely worth checking out.

    whoah…. RM20+ pp

  2. i used to drive by the signboard to this place, back when work brought me to putrajaya at least three times a month, but i never managed to check it out. looks great, perfect for a post-lunch food coma! 😀

    • Sean: You should check it out one of these days, or is it too far from Sri Petaling? 😀

  3. Never a fan of briyani rice but I like lamb dishes 🙂

  4. Why “gam”? I prefer Indian nasi biryani to the Malay ones, love the fragrance of the spices used in the cooking.

  5. What’s with the word “gam” ar? Any story behind?

    • Charmaine: I believe it denotes the Malay way of making briyani, with overnight marination and more spices.
