But where to find the best roti canai in Klang Valley lah? Relax, we have you covered with our picks of the best roti canai stalls in the Klang Valley! Listed in no particular order.

If you live close around the Sungai Penchala area or the neighbouring TTDI community, then 123 Corner is a good bet for a delicious serving of roti canai. Come during the morning hours and you’ll feel right at home among the local patrons who frequent the place. While not a mamak in the traditional sense, rest assured that you won’t be left wanting where food is concerned!

Reasons to visit/tips:

  • Be sure to order the roti canai ahead of everything else. Given its flaky texture on the outside and its delectably soft insides, roti canai perfection like this is hard to beat! Order it with your choice of curries for maximum oomph.
  • 123 Corner also offers a fantastic nasi lemak for those who want a more sinful indulgence. Fragrant santan infused rice with crisp anchovies and a fiery sambal make this hard to resist!

No, it isn’t housed inside of a mansion, before you ask. Selangor Mansion tea stall can be found close within the proximity of Masjid India in the very heart of Kuala Lumpur. Having prepared their signature roti canai for decades now, it’s easy to come to the quick conclusion that a restaurant with such staying power would be sure to impress.

Reasons to visit/tips:


  • Mansion Roti’s signature method of serving their roti canai is with a tasty flood of soft-boiled eggs, dhall, fish head curry and sambal, aptly named roti banjir. You’ll be surprised to know that despite the gravy and soft-boiled eggs, the roti manages to retain much of its texture.

This is another entrant on our list that doesn’t serve roti canai in a traditional mamak setting. Warung Pak Hassan while known around town for their scrumptious nasi lemak and accompanying lauk, also happens to know their way around a delicious roti canai. Garnering packed crowds within their modest premises, this little stall keeps brisk business around the clock.

Reasons to visit/tips:

  • Their roti tampal is a unique menu item that isn’t found anywhere else, served with a fried egg seated right on top of your roti for a little protein boost. But that’s on top of the fact that the restaurant offers unlimited top-ups of chicken feet curry. So don’t complain about not having your fill!

4. Restoran I.V @ Jalan Pandamaran Jaya 62

Klang may be most famous for its number of bak kut teh outlets, but it’s no slouch where roti canai is concerned either. Travel along Jalan Pandamaran Jaya and you’ll stumble upon Restoran I.V, a popular watering-hole for locals living around the area. Considering how locals are in the habit of referring to the establishment as ‘Roti Canai Pandamaran’, you get a good idea of what the restaurant is famous for.

Reasons to visit/tips:

  • Start off with a basic roti canai to gather the full extent of buttery flavour that a well-prepared disc of flatbread can offer. Roti canai from Restoran I.V is renowned for a thoroughly cooked roti canai that yields easily to pinching fingers, without any of that stringy texture you’re bound to find in undercooked dough.
  • The roti telur bawang is also a highlight worthy of your consideration. Chock filled with onions that give a sweetness to the buttery roti and filled with eggs, it’s a splendid alternative for those who are looking for a more filling meal.

Chances are if you’ve Googled ‘best roti canai’ in the past, you would have stumbled on Valentine Roti on more than a single instance. That’s owing to the fact that they literally have the phrase ‘Best Roti Canai’ in their name. But that isn’t to say that the title isn’t well earned. Drawing in crowds at all hours of the day (off-hours included), keep your fingers crossed that you’ll find a vacant table!

Reasons to visit/tips:

  • A masterful rendition of roti canai handed down from one generation to the next makes this place a must-try. Properly crisp and toasted to a golden brown, a thin and well-cooked roti canai leaves nothing short of sheer satisfaction on the tongue.
  • Valentine Roti also offers a house-special Valentine’s Roti, which adds sardines, sliced cabbage, chives and tomatoes into the roti. The end result? A crisp outer layer with a delectably tangy, moist filling.
