It was a drizzly evening when out taxi took us to Samy's. We just ran the Half-Marathon at the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore and was in need for a calories replenishment. Any replenish we did! With a hefty serving of rice and vegetables on a banana leaf we started with fried white pomfret (a MUST have) followed by curried crabs... More

If your taste buds are looking for a melange of spices, then Samy's curry is the place. The restaurant is housed in an old building which adds to the charm.You can chose to sit outside or inside, I would recommend outside. The restaurant boasts of food cooked with asian ( Indian) spices which lives up to expectations. Food served on... More

This restaurant serves a combination of south Indian, Sri Lankan, Malaysian cuisine on a banana leaf. Its great as an experience for the locals and expatriates but since I was visiting from India, I found the food strongly pungent and not remarkable.

We went for lunch. Make sure you arrive before 12:15 in order to get an outside table, inside it is rather hot and noisy. The fact that most customers are Indian/Asian tells you that it is an authentic place and the food bears that out. The building is quite modern and a 20 minute walk from the nearest MRT station...

My husband and I go here every time we come to Singapore, (2x per year), and the food is still very good and spicy and we love the old colonial feel of the place, like a hilltop family house, NOT at all a "coffee house". Sure, it is not luxurious but that is what makes it authentic. The curries are... More

I find the food is above average but when the bill comes it always makes me feel it seems to be more expensive than what I have expected. But the food is really not bad if you like Indian food, but the ambiance is like coffee shop... they have not renovated it since long time ago... wonder if they will... More

I came solely for the Fish Head Curry. It was delicious. Beyond that I wasn't too enamored with the experience. It's simply not good enough to come back.

It has been over 12 years since I last ate here, and recent reviews suggest that the place is not what it was. So it was with some trepidation that I made a booking and arrived. I need not have worried too much. True, it is more expensive than it was (mind you, we did not hold back on our... More

Went to check out Samy's curry at Dempsey after hearing so much about it. Nothing to say about ambience. It's like a huge coffee shop. Only cooler. Food served was way too little. I don't mind paying for good food. But the portions were disastrous. 8 miserable half-thumb sized cubes of mutton swimming in ordinary curry for $10. That's stupidity... More
