Its our first time here - the place is relatively easy to find, the curry bun tastes fantastic (portion good for 3 - 4 people), and the restaurant atmosphere is great!

Love the thick and strong flavoured curry wrapped inside the giant bun. Been craving for it since last tried it 2 years' back. Still as good! Hope the owner considers offering smaller version. The giant dough is too much for 2 persons, high chance of food wastage. Will always drop by when visit PD!

Tried lucky king bun due to their curry bun idea. The service was good and we all did well translating while pointing at menus. The curry bun was very tasty. The bread is like a brioche and inside was a very large helping of curry. In our case pork curry with potatoes. It was just what we wanted. Was quick... More

Decided to pop by this joint to fuel ourselves before a 2h drive into Melaka. The bun is pretty big, size of a volleyball? It's typical Asian style soft and mildly sweet bun with a hidden surprise in it. We chose to have the "yin & yang" a duo flavour bun of soy braised pork belly and curry pork ribs.... More

Just had the large chicken curry bun. The curry chicken was thick and flavourful. We were there before 12 noon on a Saturday and hence getting a table was easy. However the place quickly filled up half an hour later.

Description
In Malaysia's rich food culture, many love eating buns and rich curry. But while it is common to take buns with chicken curry, not many have tried baking the curry inside the bun. Now with Chicken Curry Bun, food lovers can savour a unique taste sensation like no other! Fall in love with a one-of-a-kind culinary creation - the original Curry Chicken Bun.The-Prestigious-Product-Quality-Award Sometimes also referred to as Port Dickson Curry Chicken Bun or Lukut Curry Chicken Bun or Seremban Curry Chicken Bun, it is a unique dish consisting of chicken curry with potatoes and thick gravy wrapped inside a gigantic bun. Best of all, it is not too spicy so that diners of all ages and tastes can savour it. Tuck into this must-try delicacy today! HISTORY The story of Lucky King Bun began in the quiet town of Lukut, Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan over three decades ago, when the husband-and-wife team of Mr. Chaw and Madam Lew brainstormed over new creating new food dishes. Being avid fans of cooking and baking with over 30 years' experience in the culinary industry, the pair decided to merge their expertise with a dish that required both skills. After much hard work and experimentation, the fruit of their labour was extraordinary - a sumptuous combination of chicken curry with potatoes and thick gravy wrapped inside a gigantic bun. Termed the Curry Chicken Bun, this wildly popular dish became an instant classic made famous through word of mouth. Today, the dish has become a massive homegrown success story with buns being churned out by the hundreds daily. However, it is still made with the same meticulous passion and quality as day one, with Madam Lew herself keeping a close eye on the entire process from preparation of ingredients to baking and cooking. The result - a mouth-watering delicacy that customers travel from near and far daily to savour! THE PROCESS Enjoying Curry in a Loaf is a simple and convenient affair, but a tedious amount of preparation goes into it as each bun is made fresh daily. Spanning about 6 to 8 hours in total, the process begins with cooking the curries as early as 6am. Over 20 different ingredients and spices are used to extract the rich distinctive flavour that customers love. Next, the curries are carefully transferred into bowls where they are first wrapped in grease proof paper before another additional wrapping of aluminium foil. The outer layer is light spread with butter to ensure that the bun will not stick to the foil after baking. Once this is complete, the freshly made dough is kneaded and cut by hand into evenly sized pieces to form loaves covering the individual aluminium foil packets. After being left to rise for several rounds, the buns are ready to be baked. Upon completion, the final touch is applied with egg yolk glazing to attain the buns' signature shiny golden brown finish.
