Great food served on Banyon leaves, assisted by very attentive servers. A gem, to be sure. Be sure to reserve an outside deck table for better ambiance and breeze..

Another must stop to eat at when we visit Singapore! Food is tasty and plentiful! The fish head curry is nice as well as the chicken dishes. The added ambiance of everything being served on a banana leaf, tops it off! Great waitstaff and quick eating experience.

Having heard about this Singaporean stalwart for many years and despite living there on numerous occasions I had never been. Everyone seemed to rave about it including my hero Mr Anthony Bourdain. What a let down. The food was at best average which given the hype and my expectations was such a disappointment. Had the lamb curry and various sauces... More

This place is really fun. The old building was a British military building 100 years ago but now it feels like you have left Singapore and entered India. The wait staff and the enviornment seem very authentic and the food was excellent. A really nice place to dine.

The food is delicious and spicy. The staff are courteous and attentive. They don't serve it hot though and tons of Mosquitos chew you up.

We were recommended to go to this place by a friend who had been on a recent trip to Singapore. She loved it, so I guess we were expecting big things! I booked before we left because we had been told it was a really popular place and very busy. I received a reply to my booking request three days... More

All the dishes are unique and quite unusual. We really like the chicken 63 and the butter chicken. The portions are good as is the service. It is not a luxurious place by any means but we have been many times and will keep going back as we like the down to earth feel and the food!

A local friend recommended Samy's as a place to take my wife. We has a great experience overall - very authentic food (try the fish curry), great wait staff (very patient and informative), and great ambiance. One piece of advice - most of the food is very spicy. It's so tasty that you want to keep eating, but if you... More
