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

This is the best Indian restaurant probably in the entire world, the chicken masala is simply heavenly so are the other food choices. You will never regret visiting this authentic Indian restaurant.

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.
