I got recommended this place from someone I know and it definitely did not disappoint. We had the Thali (one each) and it was amazing. We got 2 types of bread and some papadums with it. We were so full at the end we couldn’t...More

We first went to the New Woodlands back in 1989 on our first Singapore trip, though the location may have changed since then, so decided on a repeat visit to see if the thalis were as we remembered. We were not disappointed. One never knows...More

Well, must say that the appoms are actually better ! They are freshly made and served immediately - that's how they are eaten by the way, with a little coconut milk and palm sugar. Vegetarian meals are great with a variety of dosas, vadais, biryani...More

With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander
past traditional barbershops while local residents in
brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from

shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge.
Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,
