Staff friendly not a huge selection.....the food was ok. Priced reasonably for Singapore. A bit out of the way so you'll need a taxi to get there . The place has a real colonial feel about it high ceilings with old ceiling fans. One thing staff friendly to organize a taxi minimal wait. A big plus the draft tiger beer... More

We reserved a table for 13 and were very pleased with the variety of plates, overall quality, and the service. Samy's is little difficult to get to as many have said--it requires a taxi from one of several MRT stations, but is near a few other interesting places on Dempsey Hill. The staff helped us with the selections,but we did... More

The place is not easy to locate since it's way off the main road. The food was very spicy and there is limited vegetarian options.

Situated amidst lush leafy surrounds, it's almost like eating in an Indian village rather than in a city like Singapore. We ordered fish head curry, lamb & chicken dry curry & calamari curry. All very good served on banana leaf. Only problem was there was no toilet paper in the ladies. When I told them, they gave me serviettes instead.

Very nice traditional Indian food, cheap compared to other restaurants but not somewhere I would rush to again.

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.

Our hosts in singapore wanted us to feel at home and hence took us to this much talked place ..... 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.
