A few years ago Samy's was a reliable go to for a good fish head curry and a reasonably priced decent Indian meal. We went there recently as a last minute impulse and regret we ever did. While the service was helpful and polite and the setting absolutely fine,the food was a major let down. The fish head tasted of... More

Don't bother with Samy's. The curry lacked gravy, the lime juice lacked flavour, and the venue lacked style. Banana Leaf Apollo in Little India is so much better.

Well perched atop a small hillock and amidst must greenery this place was earlier a colonial building now converted into a south indian style eating place. Our initial apprehension of quality of the preparation came true when we had our... More

I came here as I had fond memories of this place since my childhood - yes, this place has been around for a long long time. The store is located on Dempsey Road , so we had to go there by taxi. The food is as good as it was back then. However, there are many new Indian restaurants that... More

Authentic Indian cuisine with nice atmosphere and reasonably priced. Good centralised location to chill and chat up with old buddies over food and drinks. They sell alcoholic drinks too, so for Muslims, do beware.

Samy's curry used to be quite sought after by both tourists and Indians. It was serving quality food in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. I have even conducted parties, brought my colleagues for lunch/dinner at this place. It used to be a place of satisfaction. However in the recent years, it seems like samy's curry lost chef samy for some... More

Had dinner there last night and was pleasantly surprised. Good authentic Indian food served in a traditional way on a banana leaf by great staff. Ordered what I thought was enough for 2 hungry diners and we had heaps of food left over - very generous servings. The next pleasant surprise was the price. I will go back often!

Moderately priced, excellent food, convenient location is how I would describe the Samy's Curry at Dempsey Hill. The Chicken Masala, Fish Fry, Mutton Sukkha, and the curries with rice and awesome. Unlimited supplies of papad's..... With a selection of Beer, Wine... What more could one ask for.... All this at a price ( the bill ) which brings a smile... More
