Brilliant Nasi Lemak House- a very good recommendation :)!


Nasi Lemak has always been one of my favorite food, from the sambal, to the rice, to the ikan bilis, to the egg and of course the added fried chicken is always a welcomed sight :)

The thing about finding the best Nasi Lemak in Malaysia is that we all have different taste and preference. Some of the main essence of Nasi Lemak are:-

  • Rice 
  • Sambal
  • Ikan Bilis
  • Fried Chicken
These elements will differ from each individual and that's what makes it so special. 

For me I prefer a mild spicy sambal that brings a bit of sweetness (but I dislike ikan bilis in the sambal) , the rice must have a strong santan smell but not too overwhelming and texture must be solid and not sticky. Ikan Bilis of course must be crunchy and the Chicken should be crispy and juicy (standard la this one)

So moving back to this place, I would say that they have similar standard as the Damansara Uptown Village Park Restaurant except Brilliant is not Halal

Okay. time to focus!

The shop does not have any fancy decors, just some portraits of their food and a LCD tv that plays Music videos the whole time. But it is very clean and quite spacious so it gives good ventilation!

Most of the crowd favs are already on the wall so most of the tables have the same food, as you can see the place was almost full when I arrive right before noon with Mom and Hui Min~.

For sure this Nasi Lemak + Ayam Goreng is a best seller and at RM5.80 it is definitely a good price for an awesome meal! The Rice and Chicken came out hot and ready to eat!

I ordered this dish, Pork Rendang + Nasi Lemak, Yes! Pork! Haha, pretty well made rendang but it's not spicy at all so if you like spicy rendang this might not be up to your standard, meat is tender though :)

Of course, the rendang ayam was also a good choice as the chicken is well marinated with the rendang spices as the taste sipped in as well. 

There are many other choices on the menu such as Wan Tan Mee and Chicken Rice as well, you could say they are also a "old town white coffee" kind of shop.

They might need to buck up a bit of service as the staff are not so experience with handling special requests :).

If you are ever around the area do drop by for lunch or dinner, it's definitely worth a try!

They have a branch in Kepong and Puchong as well. But the one i visited is the Kota Damansara Branch, it is right opposite Snow Flakes so you can't miss it!

25, Jalan PJU 5/10 (Dataran Sunway), Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Selangor 47810

Final Opinion: Recommended!
