The Prata Place

The Prata Place

The Prata Place is located along Upper Thomson Road. Went there around 930pm on a Saturday. The place was packed. Found an empty table indoor, hence we sat inside. It was very noisy, everyone seems to be talking very loudly.

Teh Tarik $0.90

Teh Tarik, tea with milk that is poured from one container to the other container from a height. Hence, the bubbles as can be seen in the above picture. My verdict, it was way too sweet!

Plain Thosai $1.40

Plain Thosai, it was crispy, thin and plain. Can’t comment much as I do not know what to look out for when eating this. Put it in this way, its not my cup of tea.

Plain (Kosong) Prata $0.90 per piece


The Plain (Kosong) Prata was delicious. It is very crispy. The sides tend to be very thin, however as you eat on, the middle portion is fluffy Moreover, it is not oily. Certainty better in terms of size, taste, curry and price when compared to Jalan Kayu pratas. To make it even more heavenly, dip it into the curry sauce!

Egg Prata $1.50

The Egg Prata did not disappoint too. It was crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. Not too oily and easy to tear apart with the fork.

That reminds me, this place is halal-certified. There are lots of variety of food. For pratas, there is even floss or red bean prata. However, do that your shirt, hair will smell of curry and prata after eating here especially if you eat indoors.

Shami Banana Leaf Delights (Northpoint)

This is probably the most popular stall in Northpoint Food Court. It is the Indian Stall called ‘Shami Banana Leaf Delights’, quite a mouthful isn’t it.

There is a queue at the stall. With about 3 servers, I waited about 5-10minutes. And the food you get is warm, not cold due to the constant crowd. Hence, most items should be quite fresh in the sense that it is fresh piping warm from the kitchen behind.

Chicken Briyani Set $6.00

This set cost $6.00.  Chicken, 2 pieces of crackers, bean sprouts (your choice of vegetables) and a huge portion of rice.. It used to cost only $4.50… but well inflation again.. They should just cut down on the amount of rice they give and lower the price. Many people especially 2 females will tend to share just 1 plate of this, because the portion of rice is really alot. Looks delicious right! The rice with curry was nice, every single grain of rice was well cooked.

2 pieces of crackers and bean sprouts

Crackers were surprising still warm (normally its not warm) and was crispy. Bean sprouts cooked just nice with a crunchy taste. It was not overcooked and certainty did not taste under cook (raw taste).


Look at this flaming red piece of chicken. Do not worry, it is not spicy. I wish it was at least a little spicy. Its just the colouring. Might look scary, but actually its delicious. The meat is soft and tender, easy to eat.

But something to note, please rinse your mouth after eating this. Shall spare the details, you will know why when you rinse.

Overall, this should be one of the best stall in Northpoint Food Court. Price is on the higher end but portions are generous. You are likely to be full, loaded with calories and carbos after eating the rice.
