Hot, melted cheese filling stuffed in a crispy fluffy naan. Either served with dhal and other curries or you can simply enjoy it on its own. That’s cheese naan for you, one of the popular local comfort food commonly found in mamak restaurants. So, if you are longing for some ooze-worthy crispy goodness, check out these 7 Cheese Naan Spots in Klang Valley To Satisfy Your Craving in alphabetical order!
1) Murni Discovery @ Various Locations
More than just your usual mamak restaurant, you will find a diverse menu that also includes local food with a fusion twist. Among them is their Naan Mozzarella Beckham Special — soft and crispy naan loaded with mozzarella cheese, turkey slice and chicken meatloaf. Think of it as a mamak version of pizza and you’ll roughly get the idea. Of course, you can always go for the regular varieties such as Naan Cheese and Naan Garlic Cheese.
2) Restoran Nathan’s Corner @ Bukit Jalil
Nathan’s Corner’s version of cheese naan — well, to put it simply — is very cheesy. Or more appropriately, their naan is not only stuffed with melted cheese but also has loads of shredded cheese blanketed on top. Talk about maximum cheesy goodness from both inner and outer layers. Available with various add-ons like garlic, chicken, mutton and banana.

3) Restoran Mahbub @ Bangsar
Restoran Mahbub may be known for their signature Briyani Ayam Madu (honey chicken briyani) but their cheese naan is no slouch either. They use mozzarella cheese for the naan filling and comes with a side serving of dhal. For more varieties, you can opt for Garlic Cheese or Garlic Cheese Butter naan.

4) Restoran Mosin @ TTDI
What’s interesting about Restoran Mosin’s version of cheese naan a.k.a. Mumtaz Naan is that it comes with a mix of sliced tomatoes and herbs. Not to mention you’ll get plenty of cheese slices sitting on top of the crust while the cheese filling can be found within the soft and crispy naan bread. If possible, pair it with savoury tandoori chicken for a complete wholesome meal!

5) RSMY – House Of Real Beriani @ Medan Tuanku
Sure, RSMY may specialise in various briyani rice dishes like chicken tandoori and mutton. But most patrons would tell you this is the place to enjoy their signature cheese naan. Their cheese naan selection primarily consists of either regular cheese or garlic cheese varieties. You can opt for extra cheese as well. Then comes the ultimate cheese pull, all generously thick and gooey. Dip the cheese naan with dhal or simply eat it on its own.

6) Uncle Aru’s Tandoori & Naan @ Ampang
Just like the name suggests, they specialise in both tandoori chicken and naan varieties with the latter being the garlic cheese (though you can have it plain or with other types like garlic or onion). But let’s talk about Uncle Aru’s version of garlic cheese naan, which comes with generous portions of cheese and garlic stuffed altogether in a crispy naan. For a more fulfilling meal, do order their signature tandoori chicken to complement with the garlic cheese naan.

Big portion, huge varieties of local and Western food and fancy beverages (their signature Soda Herbs comes to mind) — that’s what you get when you dine at William’s Corner. For naan lovers, you might want to try their hearty cheese naan. And we do mean hearty since it comes with double layers of naan stuffed with creamy melted cheese. You can eat it on its own or dip it in one of three different sauces on a silver platter.
