Cactus View Restaurant

Restaurant, Chinese, $$$
Save to wishlist

Cactus View Restaurant is located near Cactus Valley and Big Red Strawberry Farm, where you can enjoy BBQ and steamboat on the same pot. The large portions are enough for five people. While waiting for the marinated pork ribs and bacon to be grilled, indulge in warm soup along with assorted seafood and vegetables. The best way to enjoy the grilled meat is to dip it together with the spicy sauce. Make your meal even better by ordering the bak kut teh (pork rib cooked in herbal broth). It is an enjoyable meal to keep yourself warm in the perfect cool weather.

Singh Chapati Urban Restaurant

Restaurant, Indian, $$$
Save to wishlist

Singh Chapati Urban Restaurant is the only North Indian restaurant in Cameron Highlands. They serve various traditional Punjabi dishes including their weekly specials of briyani. Have a cup of aromatic Masala Tea while waiting for your food to arrive. We suggest having soft Paratha (a type of Indian bread) together with rich Chicken Butter Masala. Have a taste of either Chicken or Mutton Briyani (either medium or very spicy) as well. A word of caution: it might take a while for the dishes to arrive at your table, but they’re certainly worth the wait.
