While I was still working in PJ, Raju’s at Jalan Gasing had always been the top choice for Banana Leaf among my colleagues. There are a couple of reasons they like this place but the main ones are: fried chicken and a large outdoor seating that could accomodate big groups.
Strategically located near the green lung of PJ – Raju’s is quite cooling even in a hot afternoon much thanks to the many big trees around that act as nature’s umbrellas. So, when compared to the other Banana Leaf restaurants that are usually cramped, Raju’s dining environment is more open and inviting.
Raju’s mascot would be the first thing to greet you upon reaching the restaurant. I am still struggling to decide whether it is a smiling tosai or cigarette.
I am aware there are many complaints about Raju’s service. But I had been here quite a number of times and we never had problems with the service. You see, friendly service with a smile! That, or because of my camera.
Although they are also famous for their roti canai (how good I don’t know since I never tried), Banana Leaf with fried fish are what I always order here. Yeah, I am not exactly a big fan of their fried chicken – a bit too tough for my liking. If you are wondering, that vague looking piece of dark thing is actually a fish roll, ok?
