The coconut chutney had definitely turned ! Probably from keeping it for two days. Go to MTR instead. Cleaner and tastier.

We went there but didn't find the place to be clean, they had too less staff (may be on that day) as no body came to take orders for almost five minutes, ultimately we left without having anything and surprisingly nobody even bothered to ask...More

Impersonal service - even unpleasant . Quality of their specialty - idlis - not anywhere near what they used to be. They have lost a lot of loyal clients

Came by this place for breakfast and I was blown away by the quality of the Idli and Thosai. The chutney that they provided was flavorful and went well with the Idli and Thosai. Just a tip, don't order their coffee, it isn't really that...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
decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful
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,

Too early to make a judgement for the hospitality they have earned. They are known to serve people at reasonable rates. Their purpose is very clear : serve food. As Subham said; this may be a One-Off situation.
