Located in India, opposite Mustafa centre, the Indian crowd never ceased to flow in, and getting a seat can be tough. Food quality if fairly ok, compared to other indian hotels around. serves 24 hours, which made us go twice since we were running late and the others had already closed!

Great food but a few things were oily. Prices are competitive. Service is fast. Worth a visit. Lost one star just because of oily stuff in some items. Otherwise, a great joint. There is one in Little India and the other on Terminal 2 of Changi Airport.

Veggietarians delight and those not wanting to eat anything meat, this is the place for you. A bit small and tight in seating, yet value for money on food and drinks. We had the Tawa Chappathi set, Masala Thosai, Murtaba. All served pipping hot and in hearty portions that amongst 3 people could feed a family of 5. Delicious was... More

Although our trip to Singapore was relatively expensive, the only thing that was reasonably priced was the food. And this was the case with Ananda Bhavan too. We visited Little India to have a look at the Mustafa Centre and on the way back to our accommodation we came across Ananda Bhavan. Being a huge fan of curry, we decided... More

Had a very good experience in Anand Bhavan, staff was polite and I think it is the best vegetarian restaurant in Little india, Couldn't find any other option other than this. Special mention for masala dosa, chole bhatture and the ginger tea :) and it is also 24*7 which is really convenient for everyone. And the service is damn fast,... More

Located very close to the Little India MRT, this restaurant is one of the best places where you can enjoy authentic South Indian dishes. From the Pongal vadai, Poori, Masala Dosai to the Coffee, it is just as you can have it in South India. Makes you feel extremely at home!

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.
