Aunty Aini’s Garden Café
Batu 16, Jalan Sepang, Kampung Chelet, Nilai (06 7991276).
Away from the city glare in a serene village, this quaint little café offers more than just food. The noisiest thing you’ll hear as you sup at this restaurant is the chirp of crickets accompanied by the gurgling water features. Gorgeous atmosphere aside, the dishes served here are simple and uncomplicated. Absolutely traditional daging salai in gulai lemak cili padi, sup ekor and ikan jenahak assam pedas are favourites with the regulars. Halal. Child friendly. Mon–Sat, 11.30am–3.30pm, 5.30pm–11.30pm. $
SAS Restoran Ayam Kampung First floor, 9 Avenue, Taman Korporat Nilai, Bandar Baru Nilai, Nilai (06 794 0280).
This eatery only uses kampung (village) chicken in its kampung-style dishes. In a constant effort to bring the best food to all patrons, the restaurant introduced a new menu last year with more variety. Lempeng, berdegel and tauhu bakar are some of the new dishes alongside popular choices like ayam halia and ayam masakan lemak. Pork-free. Mon–Sun, 9.30am–10.30pm. $
