Haven't been here since the '90s, and outwardly it hasn't changed much. The food is served on a banana leaf with a couple of side dishes (nice). The food was ok, but not justified by the price $50 for two (without beer) - and that was two small dishes and a small veg. All the same, we enjoyed it, however... More

We spent the day at the Singapore Botanical Gardens and Samy's is a little walk off from the gardens and quite a long walk from the nearest MRT. However the walking pays off. Huge portions of biriyani and tasty Indian dishes accompanied by the restaurant's own lime juice were simply great. The staff isn't the most smiling-customer service type but... More

An Australian friend recommended me this place, a large banana leaf placed in front of you, & small portions of delicious meat & curries poured on & on, a good place to have your Indian food fix. Definitely a 4 out of 5, will return soon for finger licking good

My wife and I had lunch a la Samy's today and we wern't hungry afterwards. Thats about all I can of to write in praise. On the other hand: the food is average, the waiters are almost awake, the lamb curry did have flavour but of what I am not sure. The price for 2 including a cup of tea... More

I can say that I've pretty much grown up on this type of Indian food (25 years), and my dad started eating here in the 1980's. Nothing much has changed except for the service staff and the portions (because of natural inflation I'm guessing). We usually order our food to go, and we will be eating it for the next... More

Having visited Samy's 6 years ago with my family I felt it would be a great place to take my new Husband to experience the fun and amazing food. It did not let me down, the food is sensational and was a great New Years Day dinner for me and my husband on our honeymoon. We booked a table in... More

We came here on the recommendation of a Singapore resident who said it would be one of the best curry's we've ever had... he wasn't wrong :-) Samy's was just fabulous... if you are looking for a fine dining, five star, high end dining experience, this is not it ;-) but if you just want authentic Indian food and some...

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.
