We were taken here by friends as we did not want an expensive night out. The service was good but the food was average. My meat curry was very dry and my friend's chicken was not what he expected, so we were not over-impressed.

we were really looking forward to eating here. A good friend who traveled to Singapore raved about this restaurant. The food IS not all that much better than what's in New York, or any medium size city in the US. The rata is good, but the naan's are just so so.

Food wise not too bad service reasonable, a little pricy, with most dishes, nothing very special about the dishes, which is available at others but at a Budget price.

This is an amazing place to have best fish head curry. It was yummy and mild spicy, best with rice or plain naan. The atmosphere is great not too fine dining setup. Try the Sri Lankan crab, another great dish. Overall worth for money. Must try at least once.

Muthu's curry has been around for some time and their signature curry fish head is one of the best in Singapore. They serve reasonably good Indian food, tried the chicken kebabs, Tikka, Tandoori, squid, curry mutton, Naan breads, briyani etc. However the service staff at Dempsey outlet are not attentive and stretched. It is very difficult to get their attention... More
