Probably been there for few dozen times in last few years and food is always good. This time the rice set with side of veggie and Rasam was as usual fantastic. It was full house during Friday lunch time. Masala chicken was hard though, disappointing....P Ambience is great, a must visit restaurant in Singapore.More

First when you arrive, you are greeted curtly to get your checking in done. Then they say "you cannot share rice" - so it doesn't matter how many dishes you order? That's really in poor taste. To top it off, the fish head curry was...not fresh and the masala chicken was so hard, we had to order a drumstick in addition. The potato cutlet has a strange vegetable oil taste. It all just leave a very sour taste on my lips.More

We came here on Hari Raya Haji public holiday. They are normally closed on Tuesdays but decided to open today to cater to the holiday crowd but it wasnt crowded when we went for lunch. We had byrani and naan with masala chicken which was...just about spicy enough for us. Washed it down with coconut water. Tasty and rich indian food for a treat once in a while.More

A heritage establishment since 1935. Popular with locals as well as visitors. Order and the food comes very quickly. The rice comes first, briyani or white. Ordered their curry fish head, chicken tikka, and butter, cauliflower, paneer( cottage cheese with spinach), black squid and naan(...garlic and plain). Tastes was acceptable, nothing awesome but in general tasty Indian food. Lime juice, mango lassi was refreshing. Service is ok, whilst the environment is an open space in a colonial building. The floors looks kind of untidy just before closing. Price is mid range.More

Simple , normal ‘restaurant’ in an up market area. Price wise reasonable but on the higher side. Place is ok - you will be taking the odour back after a meal especially if you’re seated inside . Food wise is good - the usual chicken...tikka , Gobi, masala chicken , butter chicken , naan , and of course the white rice and briyani rice served with potatoes and daal. Mango or sweet lassi is ok - nothing to rave about here . Ambience is ok but wear proper shoes - not slippers - as the floor can be oily . Car park is abundance if you don’t mind walking. Overall - it’s good and worth a try and revisits. And yes - make an appointment as the place can be pretty busy .More

Food was average, fish head curry the meat was tough, find the Chinese type better, but maybe its personal preference. Curry mutton meat was also tough. Won't be going back.

This place is a cult. Everyone has their preferred phở or burger joint. Samy’s is my fav place fir fish head curry. If you dare, best way to savour your meal here is to eat with your hand. Then you will understand what finger lickin’...good really means!More

I dont know if anyone from the restaurant reads this page. Perhaps best contacting the restaurant directly.

Yes. Shoes are recommended though, as the floor can be greasy.
