Mr Kabab & Biryani @ Precint 15, Putrajaya

Putrajaya is not exactly a famous makan destination in Klang Valley, no?

If you're a fan of Biryani rice, then you should reconsider!

Located at the Diplomatic Precint (aka Precint 15) is probably the best restaurant in Putrajaya; Mr Kabab (yes, with an "a" instead of an "e") & Biryani. It started out small and now has taken 4 shop lots in just a few years.

The restaurant serves Middle Eastern-Pakistani cuisine, which is mostly (you guessed it) kebabs, mandi and biryani rice (about RM13 and up) and nan breads and tandoori chicken. Not the biggest menu in the world but what they lack in variety, they make up in taste.

Rice rice rice

K: The long-grained rice is fluffy and flavourful, the meats (chicken, lamb or kebab) so tender, it only needs a little bit of prodding to separate the flesh from the bone. The rice dishes are usually served with a lime, curry, tomato chutney and a large green cili (an optional bit of heat).

TJ: I find that mandi rice has a milder but rich taste compared to the more robust briyani.

Nan & Tandoori Chicken


Mr Kabab also makes fluffy nans (RM4 and up) that is served with dhall. I hate cold rubbery nan but Mr Kabab's nan tends to stay soft longer than most. My grandmother loves the nan, especially with the juicy tandoori chicken (RM7). I can eat the nan on it's own, mopping up the dhall clean.

Nina - The not runny dhall is full of big chickpeas and lentils. It tastes great and very flavourful without excessive sourness. TJ - On rare occasions, the dhall is too "fresh" meaning the chickpeas and lentils haven't been stewed long enough to soften.

K - For the drinks, a must have is the mango juice. Yes, mango juice, not mango lassi. It's thick, creamy & delicous. Yum yum!!

Mr Kabab is at a corner near the Putrajaya Immigration Office & Dewan Seroja, facing a park. It's about a few blocks opposite Mydin.

In short - good food, generous portions for a reasonable price. A must makan spot in Putrajaya.
