I'm not the biggest fan of vegetarian but even I found the food here delicious. Just be aware that you need to order and pay at the counter and the front rather than order from a waiter. Prices very reasonable.

We had a lunch here and it was fabulous. It's vegetarian but as a meat lover I wasn't disappointed at all. Everything was tasty and full of flavors. The setting is rather basic but the taste of the food was not.

Stayed 7 nights in Little India and we went here for 5 of those mornings for breakfast. The food was yummy. If you want traditional South Indian food, give it a try. My boys are hooked, and I will be back again. Thanks MTR 😃

We visited this restaurant in April 2017 and found the quality exactly in line with the original MTR restaurant in Bangalore. The authenticity of cuisine, presentation and the taste were outstanding. Doing this in Singapore speaks volumes about the processes implemented by the hotel chain. Only improvement can be to add more space to make the place bigger to ensure... More

With a legacy as long as MTR has since 1924 and the culinary advances that have been incorporated over the years by its founders, it is no surprise that the outlet in SG serves up a plethora of South Indian vegetarian delicacies at a quality that is hard to beat. The age old saying of 'You get what you pay... More

The food is awesome at MTR. Specially their rava idly and podi dosa. Coffee is good and so is the badam milk shake. Beware of over crowding and Long queues during peak hours.

Almost all South Indian tiffin items are available. Except their 'pongal' everything tastes good. Especially the aromatic coffee. The waiters can behave pleasantly to the customers. The way they serve can be a little polite and pleasant.
