Still Serving Great Curries

We had a Mother's Day lunch at Samy's Curry. Not having visited for more than three years, the food was as good as before.For the four of us we ordered a fish head curry, masala crabs and chicken masala. All met our expectation. However, it is spicy for those who are not used to it. We booked in... read more

Being an Indian myself, the expectations of an Indian restaurant would be at its peak but only Samy has successfully made me return countless times. Pros: served on a banana leaf with unlimited refills of rice and vegetables rarely seen nowadays in Singapore. Dishes have a home cooked touch. Recommended dishes are the fish head, masala chicken and Mysore mutton.... More

Samy's is traditional in a positive way, traditional architecture, plenty of space and the best curry I have had in Singapore. Plenty of choices and generous portions that just keep coming. Excellent dal and lassi drinks. A touch of the Empire but rather like a film set! Fun!

Location is a little bit remote but in a very nice atmospehere. Food was good, but not spectacular. Curry fishhead was very good Chicken dishes average. Naan soso. Lassi was mixed with too much water and the ice cubes made it worse after a while. Comparing it to another well know restaurant serving indian dishes on banana leaves in Singapore,... More

Not bad food ...terrible service though. ..sorry, but you can't ride in tradition forever...you also have to show some respect to customers ... stop being rude - your food is good, but not that good.

Took my son and husband here as their first experience of a 'banana leaf restaurant'. Had fish head curry (all mine and very delish!), chicken tandoori (best ever according to my husband), and some other small dishes (they were ok, but these two were the standouts). Very worthwhile to visit, good quality, local food.

Nice food and staff. Ate here with my in laws as they wanted to show me fish head curry. Food court style/hygiene in my opinion and I'm getting used to it after dining local a few times now. Food is good and the hygiene is probably better than it looks like with european eyes. Both chicken and fish dishes was... More

I used to patronised Samy's curry even my daughter told me that she found baby cokroach in her cauliflower. I have stopped going for a while since I witnessed with my own eyes how unhygienic the serving staf were. The banana leaves used as plate dropped on the floor and the particular waitress picked them up and put them together... More

The friend i was staying with took my wife and myself to this restaurant. He was a regular customer and we weren't disappointed. though the menu is brief whatever you order is really tasty. Everything is served on banana leaves. The bill was on the cheap side and the cooking puts many British curry houses to shame. Apparently the staff... More
