Makhan by Kitchen Mafia @ Petaling Jaya

Kitchen Mafia strikes again: The team that runs Section 17's hugely popular restaurant Hello has unveiled its new venue, Makhan (a reference to the Hindi word for 'butter'), tackling northern Indian & British comfort food with a contemporary flair.

Tongue-to-tripe dining: For the ideal introduction to Makhan's repertoire, start with a bar snack of beef tongue chips that convey full-bodied offal flavours (RM22), then moo-ve on to more bovine bodaciousness with the beef parts vindaloo (RM28, comprising tenderly braised tongue, tendon & tripe) & steak pie (RM38, with slow-cooked brisket, carrots, leeks & shrooms).

Makhan's northern Indian offerings hit enjoyably mellow notes: The lentil-rich dhal makhani is deliciously creamy (RM14), while the classic butter chicken can be substituted with smoked duck for a more savoury punch (RM26). Pair with garlic-&-herb flatbread (RM8) or better still, the fluffy, fragrant & flavoursome pulao rice tossed with tasty chicken tikka (RM16), bolstered by tomato chilli chutney & coriander yoghurt (RM2 each).

The British section is more compact, but the classics are accounted for, from crisply battered fish & chips with mushy peas (RM36) to bangers & mash with smooth, succulent sausages that come in a choice of chicken, beef or robust lamb (RM38).

  1. Is this the one opened by celebrity chef, Sherson? I follow his shows ;) When you say...unveiled its new venue....does that mean the old one (Hello) is no longer around?

    1. Contact.ewew: this is Sherson & Johnny's place, ya ;) Hello is still going strong, just one or two kilometers away from Makhan - so you can choose which one you'd prefer to visit based on what you feel like having! ;)
