Satisfied my craving

I was really in the mood for some good Indian food and Samy's took care of that craving. The setting is really nice in an old building, set amongst a row of other restaurants. We had the feeling it was a lot of locals, mostly expats, and some families, a knowledgeable tourist here and... read more

delicious fresh and spicy food. the mutton, fish head curry is excellent. i prefer their biryani rice with my meals and the leomanade and coconut water is a great accompaniment. always crowded so many time we call and order and take away. great place to tae folks from out of town or a perfect sunday lunch with chilled beer

Being Indian and living in Singapore, we visited Samy's Curry at Dempsey Hill last week, out of curiosity. We had visited Samy's about 5 yrs ago and being very disappointed, never returned. However, having seen good reviews praising the food and the location of this restaurant we decided to give it a try once more. We were disappointed. The Food... More

I came for brunch with my wife. They have excellent banana leaf rice with lots of extra options. I can recommend the Mysore mutton and the fried cauliflower. The service is pretty good. It's a little more expensive, but very good value given the location and the quality. Recommended

When I was living in Singapore, I reggularly had friends visiting, and I always took them to Samy's Curry. The atmosphere is very local Indian, and the food is served on banana leafs - something most foreigners are amazed over. Ask the waiters to just bring different types of food to the table, and taste everything they present to you.... More

Great for their briyani which is my fave in town. Prices though are a lot higher than what they used to be at their outlet in the old Marina Square food court.

On entering Samys it's not flash but don't be put off, order a lime juice or a beer and then choose your food which will be brought to your table to... More

Visited recently to introduce friends to the joys of traditional banana leaf curry. They were blown away. the food the atmosphere everything. I wish I could get a CD of the happy babble in Samy's to play when I make curry meals at home. A must visit whenever in Singapore

Indeed a great place to have Indian food. This former sergeant's mess in the British era of Singapore provides a rather lovely ambience for your spicy meal. A great place to bring friends, family and guests coming to Singapore. My favourites here are the Curry Fish Head, Fish cutlets, Fried pomfret, Chicken 65 and mutton masala. Try eating your food...
