Betel Leaf was started in 2009 to provide a tasty, authentic Chettinad experience in Kuala Lumpur. Chettinad is the homeland of the Nattukottai Chettiars, who are well known for their hospitality and their food. Their cuisine is renowned all over the world for its use of spices in their highly aromatic cooking, particularly in non-vegetarian dishes.
We strive to ensure that our food is flavourful as possible, using only the freshest ingredients. We rear our own goats and rabbits, and grow vegetables at our farm in Mantin, Negeri Sembilan, and most of the spices used in our cooking are imported from India. In keeping with this tradition, our chefs have been brought in specifically from India to ensure that our food is as authentic as possible.
With our classic South Indian ambience, as well as our artefacts, sculptures and paintings, we hope that your experience is as enjoyable as possible.
Private dining space is available for events and functions (PA system available). Please contact us for enquiries.
