Heavenly place for Vegetarians

As compared to my last visit the quality of food has been dwindled. We had hot and sour soup which was very spicy and not tasty. Then we tried veg cutlet it was very average and was not cooked properly. We were bit satisfied with the Veg fried rice at last. The ambience was good but the service was bad.

They have a pretty extensive Indian menu covering chaats, sweets, gravies, and bread. The food's not anything to write home about. The naan is good, sizzlers unique and interesting, chaat very average, but the paneer often tastes like tofu and that messes up the taste of the food. The ambience and service are decent. Overall, it's not particularly great value... More

I visited Bombay Cafe in Tanjong Katong Road regularly before it closed down in mid-2013. There is still a branch of Bombay Cafe at 79 Syed Alwi Road. It's a vegetarian restaurant serving decent Indian vegetarian food with influences from North and South India. Some of the better items are the starters, including papri chaat, paneer tikka, and black pepper... More

I loved this place because it had been some time since I've had some Indian food. And the food was quite authentic. We had parathas, samosas etc.. I loved the dal makhani or as they call it the Bombay dal. The Navratan korma was out of this world. It was brilliant. I ended up stuffing myself beyond what I would... More

A must go for every Indian food lover in Singapore. This is the place where i first ate my Indian meal in Singapore. It serves good chat and would advise to go for a buffet on weekends. I believe its worth it.

The Bombay Cafe was recommended by our local tour guide, the ambience and food didn`t let us down. The ambience was very good and enjoyable. The food was equally good, we ordered a paneer dish with naan. The paneer was very soft and taste was awesome, i never had such soft paneer in my entire life.

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
