“Delicious but very expensive.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

Delicious but very expensive. We never fail to impressed, and would go much more often if not for the prices. The Long Island iced tea cocktail is fantastic.

“Overpriced, overhyped, poor tasting food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2011

Went here as recommended by a colleague at work
Nice enough Ambience, though a little sterile.. would be nice with little touches like Candles, you can tell its quite a classy place though
Professional service absolutely no issues at all on this

I dont mind paying for excellent tasting food and pay you certainly will do, but then its Singapore and in 'Expatville' Dempsey Hill things tend to be very pricey and a bit cliquely

The prices are about $30-$35 for a basic meal (vegetarian dish) including the standard 10% service charge and GST.
The food quality was poor - some of the ingredients overpowered the dish like Bayleaves and especially Cardimon. I dont understand why restaurants put so much in food that all you tend to taste is Cardimon - its just cooking incompetence in my opinion

I had a vegetarian dish and the wife had a lamb dish. The Vegetarian dish was much better than the lamb dish

Portion sizes were quite small - you could easily finish them (but we didnt finish the Lamb as it wasnt edible due to the Cardimon).. which you cannot say that for a number of Indian places

We had a couple of dishes, rice, Nan and bottle of wine (no starter - was expensive) and the bill was about $200

As stated wouldnt mind if the food was good but it was poor..

Ambience/Place I would give 3.5/5
Food taste 1/5 (The rice/Nan was ok! and thats what the 1 is for)
Food Portion 2.5/5
Overall 2 our of 5 at best

We wont be going back there and wont recommend this to any of our friends in Singapore

“Great find for Indian food in Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2011

We ate here last night having previously walked past this place to eat in other Dempsey Hill restaurants. We did not know what we were missing until last night.

Wonderful atmosphere and service, but the special buffet in place for the festival of Deepavali allowed us to try new favors along with older favorites. The deer curry and the quail curry were outstanding and the chicken Korma had much more flavor than this normally rather bland dish.

Wil definitely be back.

“Excellent place for Indian food. Smart, wonderful staff and good music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

Have been thrice to this place in the last 3 years, and the service was always excellent, the staff very courteous, and the food yummy.
The price is definitely a bit on the higher side, but well worth the money. I guess 60-80 SGD per head would be a close estimate
Another great thing - great music. Not too loud, not too 'gaudy' and not too old too :)
Definitely recommend

“lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2011

The place has indoor and outdoor seating. It was pretty quiet on a weekday night. We chose outdoor seating, which was really nice. The food was pretty good. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Overall a very pleasant visit and I would recommend that place to anyone. chicken malay ticka was really good.
