Don't understand the reviews about bad service. We found it very prompt and friendly. Had a great meal!! Very interesting building and just perfect. We were looking for a different Indian restaurant, but we so happy we stumbled upon Muthu's Curry.

Simple and clean with helpful staff. Great Crab curry and Biryani. Loved the Fish tikka. Nicely flavoured and washed with good South Indian coffee.

Decided to try out Muthu's Curry. We had initially intended to go Samy's Curry but unfortunately closed. Food served nothing to shout. Average normal Indian Restaurant. I bet those in Serangoon Road smaller shops are better. Service sucks. Ask for rice to be replenished but till finished my meal, that never come. Definitely not coming back

This has been by far the best curry we have eaten in Singapore... Absolutely fabulous... totally delicious and tasty food and great service... the veggie curry was probably one of the best veggie curries we've ever had... LOVED IT :-)

Great location, great value for fresh food, must try the yoghurt raita. Generously served with a heart not with mathematics like most singapore restaurants... A must try...
