Good value for money

Located bang opposite one of Musatafa entrance. This restuarant serves Indian food at good price without compromising on quality. We had our food regularly during our week long visit to Singapore. Only thing is it gets crowded especially during weekends given its location. Though they serve North... read more

Ordered for full meal. Service was quick. Food quality was ok. Not what you would expect a typical South Indian food to be thought. Reasonably priced.

We had dinner twice at this restaurant during our stay of 6 days in Singapore. Clean, neat and good service. Compared to the other hotels we had food, we thought the prices were reasonable too. Would recommend this anyone looking for quality Vegetarian food.

Located in Little India opposite the amazing Mustapha Department store. We ate wonderfully seasoned light vegetarian food. Wife had the biriyani special while I had the Rava Onion. Two bottles of water and one lime juice. Good service. We were the only non Indians there. Clean toilets. A interesting light lunch and experience total SIN$22.15

This is a good place. Its a safe bet for South Indian food. The prices are reasonably decent considering Singaporean standards. Service is fine. The sambar and other chutney's are authentic and found it well worth it alongside Dosa and Uttapam. When around Little India, if you decide on South Indian Vegetarian fare, this is one of the better places.

No nonsense South Indian joint. You can wrap up your meals in about SGD 20 for a family of 4. The Idli I did not like it much, they have although created some 7-8 small ones dipped in sambhar in a single potion, maybe my North Indian taste buds prevented me to appreciate the same. But this place is just... More

Good, reliable southern Indian vegetable dishes here. Nothing to rave about, and they seem to rely rather too heavily on potato, but I'd still eat here again. The food was also a bit spicier than other spots like Komala Villas, just as a warning to those who don't like spice. Still not particularly sweat-inducing, though.

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
