Nestled in the middle of the bustling Little India, this gem serves authentic South Indian food at moderate prices too! The staff are helpful and know their job very well! Excellent for a mid-day meal / lunch. Do try the South Indian meals there served on a banana leaf with sambar, rasam, rice, curries, papadam etc with refilling too :)

We always try to bring visitors here to try and see another part of Singapore. It's a place they otherwise might not enter, but we have been here several times already and the food is good and you shouldn't get any Delhi Belly here. We usually start with the dosa's which are as good as funny looking. Then you add... More

I have been here couple of times. I found the vada very good and crispy. The quantity served could be better as I felt the dosas and vada being a touch smaller. But they were tasty and well made. The place can get busy on weekends. The service was good. Coffee taste can be improved to match the Chennai Woodlands... More

Looking for authentic Indian in aircon comfort with great service? This is it. Authentic Thalis. Great food & clean surroundings. Unfortunately for some: no alcohol served or permitted. Order the mango lassi instead

This South Indian restaurant is in Little India just off Serangoon Road. They serve typical vegetarian fare such as masala dosa, rava dosa and thali as well as many other dishes. The mango lassi is excellent as are the other dishes. It is very clean and the waiters will help those unfamiliar with the cuisine. An excellent choice for an... More

This is one of the best place in Singapore for South Indian breakfast/meals. The set-up is modest but it has its own regular clientele with many non-Indians as regular visitors. Items worth trying are doasa, uttapam, idlis, appam and of course set south Indian meal. Top it off with a cup (sorry, glass) of tea or coffee served in traditional... More

We expected more because of the very good reviews, though. The food was authentic Indian and ok for a quick lunch. The selection was not so big.

Love to go here regularly with family including mother. The food is typical South Indian meals. Prefer the Madras Biryani option that gets you saffron rice with all the traditional south India meal plate like rasam, sambar, curries and papadam. Tried the dosa's too and they are really nice. Easily one of the best south Indian eateries in Singapore. The... More

Came back here for another visit, this time with the family. First sampling of paper masala dosa for the kids, and it seems they liked it. Between us we had 2 mango lassis and a lime juice, 2 paper masala dosas, 2 prata sets (consisting of 2 pratas each) and 2 wadas, for a total cost of $31. Service was... More

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.
