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.

Samy's curry used to be quite sought after by both tourists and Indians. It was serving quality food in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. I have even conducted parties, brought my colleagues for lunch/dinner at this place. It used to be a place of satisfaction. However in the recent years, it seems like samy's curry lost chef samy for some... More

Had dinner there last night and was pleasantly surprised. Good authentic Indian food served in a traditional way on a banana leaf by great staff. Ordered what I thought was enough for 2 hungry diners and we had heaps of food left over - very generous servings. The next pleasant surprise was the price. I will go back often!

Moderately priced, excellent food, convenient location is how I would describe the Samy's Curry at Dempsey Hill. The Chicken Masala, Fish Fry, Mutton Sukkha, and the curries with rice and awesome. Unlimited supplies of papad's..... With a selection of Beer, Wine... What more could one ask for.... All this at a price ( the bill ) which brings a smile... More

Met here with friends who live in Singapore and recommended Samy's. Loved the friendly atmosphere, the unusual eating from banana leaves and the continual circulation of various curries to try. An experience enjoyed all the more by catching up with friends not seen for several years. If you have time to spare, try the Samy's experience.

We went to Samy's on two or three strong recommendations. Masala chicken was amazing the rest was ver nice but really just standard fare. We had veg of the day and gobi (cauli) and tandoori fish - which was tiny but tasty. We had a nice meal and it was certainly good value but not sure it is worth the... More
