Apart from sourcing for more fun places in Johor Bahru, we also try out various cuisine and bookmark our favourite makan hunts. Recently, we have added Spice Villa as one of our favourite spot whenever we crave for Indian Cuisine. Located within Holiday Villa Johor Bahru, opposite KSL City, it is convenient to drop by for lunch or dinner after completing our shopping trip.
Fine dining @ Spice Villa
I still recall Hubby and I were absolutely clueless on what to order on our first visit last July. It was way past dinner and we were trying to find some light food for supper. Totally unfamiliar with the names on the menu, we were thankful that the staff helped us and recommended delicious dishes. The current menu has been improvised with more items and they have also included a short description along with the name of the dish which is really helpful.
We had Garlic Naan and Butter Naan with Butter Chicken Masala for supper that night. Eating the naan on its own is delicious, dipping it into the masala makes it even more heavenly.
Garlic Naan (RM4.50)
Butter Naan (RM4.50)
Cheese Naan (RM4)
Butter Chicken Masala (RM19.90)
We brought the children back on our next visit and they enjoyed the naan as much as we do. This is our must order whenever we dine at Spice Villa.
On other visits, we tried out other dishes as well. I love Briyani as it is a flavourful rice dish made with spices. Every grain is tasty and fragrant. Spice Villa also offers a variety of briyani and I like it plain. :)

Plain Briyani (RM10)
Fish Head Curry is one of the signature dish at Spice Villa. The gravy is rich and not very spicy. Fish meat is tender and fresh. It goes perfectly well with briyani or white rice. We also dipped the naan into the curry to taste. A great dish for all to share.
Half Fish Head (RM35)
Occasionally, they also introduce special dishes to spice the diners' taste bud. We had a Crab special on our latest visit last December.

Price may be a little higher but we appreciate the nice ambiance, great service from the friendly staff, especially the manager who speaks many languages, making us feel at home. Their naans are super addictive that keep us going back for more.
