the reviews on The Song of India - outside Tripadvisor - tend to make it out to be one of the best Indian restaurants of all time. that's a bold statement considering Little India is a 15-minute cab ride away from the place. That said, this is definitely delicious, authentic Indian cuisine, offering the traditionally diverse menu. My knowledge of... More

Went there for a xmas lunch and was the biggest rip off ever, the aircon was not working. Only one fan for the whole restaurant. Extremely stuffy inside, food was terrible, a xmas turkey turned out to... More

Good quality food with nice setting. At this price point suggest you can find better indian food at some competitors (Tandoor, Raffles, Yantra)

I found the atmosphere oppressive in an old, damp and musty colonial house with over-loud and frenetic taped piano music echoing round incongruously. The food is standard Indian with all sorts of decoration and a not particularly nice amuse bouche to justify the price. The vegetarian platter including "freebie" was acceptable as was the mashed aubergine. Did not think much... More

Went for a Saturday lunch buffet... The food just din't have the warmth you expect Indian cuisine to have! The restaurant smelt musty... The buffet was limited in spread... The cocktail did not justify its 16$ ++ price tag!

Although the prices are a bit high, especially the wine prices, the food is quite nice. We had a nice, tasty meal, we left the restaurant full and satisfied. The service was good, the waiters were polite. ( one negative note though; the bathrooms clearly have not been cleaned for quite a LONG time....)

Visiting Singapore from our home in Australia, after 2 days of Chinese and Malaysian style foods, whilst delicious, we were keen to experience a quality Indian Restaurant. But so many to choose from! We did not want to travel far from our Hotel (The Goodwood Park) due to Monsoonal Storms and The Song of India was a short walk away.... More

I took the amex platinum card promotion and came for ala carte lunch. Upon recommendation by the waiter, I took the chicken tikka, spicy prawn curry (main), lamb ginger (main), fruit and nut naan, garlic naan. It was quite a lot of food for 2 people but the prawn curry is really flavourful. The lamb ginger is soft and tender... More
