McCurry Restaurant in Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur is now a big name in eatery business serving a variety of fresh, tasty and spicy Indian and Malaysian cuisines, delicacies, sweet meats and savouries.
Business has more than doubled at McCurry Restaurant and has been drawing bigger crowds than its usual daily since it won an eight-year legal battle with the fast food-giant McDonald’s over the use of the prefix “Mc” on its business signage.
“We are a truly 1 Malaysia restaurant serving Malaysian chicken curry and other local dishes to Malaysians of different races from all walks of life,” said McCurry Restaurant owner A.M.S.P.Suppiah who is now nicknamed McSuppiah by his regular customers.
“The restaurant brings all the different races together in true 1 Malaysia spirit and it’s a joy to watch my multi-racial customers relaxing and enjoying the food. This is a source of pride for me and McCurry.
Suppiah also saw a rush of new customers and although it's too soon to tell whether they will return for the restaurant's exotic dishes, he believes the customers will definitely be returning for more once they have tasted the gravy lip smacking taste of Malaysian chicken curry dishes.
“We have introduced new scrumptious dishes to tantalize the taste buds of all our customers.
“We have also spruced up the restaurant to make the dining rooms more comfy, casually elegant and roomy enough to host bigger crowds,“ added Suppiah who together with his wife Kanageswary Suppiah had worked hard to setup the restaurant in 1999 then known as Restoran Penang Curry House and renamed Restoran McCurry in 2001.
McCurry stands for Malaysian chicken curry. The food is delicious with the spicy curry chicken being a particularly big hit, along with the fish curry head and other exotic dishes.
The service was great, the atmosphere was a bit noisy but that's what you get at McCurry restaurant that is now drawing big crowds.
Business day lunches bring long lines so its better to come early as the tables are fully occupied. Its definitely worth making a reservation.
