Delight in fine Indian cuisine as you dine just a stone’s throw away from the heart of Orchard Road. Situated in a black and white heritage colonial bungalow, its tasteful interiors and lush green surroundings offer you an intimate dining indulgence amid the bustle of the city.

Great place for a special occassion!

After having eaten at The Song Of India twice now, I would definitely recommend it to all those looking for a "fine dining" experience. The location is fantastic, set in a colonial style black and white bungalow right on Orchard Road, beats the fancy malls & high rises any day. The ambience was... read more

Indian is one of my favorite foods, and for past 8 years... this was one of my favorite places when in Singapore. What a disaster last night was. Took 30 minutes to get anything... then most all that came was either cold or cool... Tandoori lamb chops, Tandoori shrimp, cold.. s/b hot and sizzling... scallops cool. Chicken curry cold vegetable... More

We booked The Song of India for our family dinner as it had good reviews however our experience turned out bad. We ordered one of the lamb dish and the Lamb meat was smelly and spoiled. This is totally not acceptable for a fine dining restaurant. Even though the Chef came and apologized however the rest of the staff behaved... More

I went to Song of India for a nostalgic dinner with my girlfriend who now lives in New York, where she is spoilt for choice when it comes to dining out. Being of Indian ethnicity, she is particularly harsh in her critique of Indian food, and rightly so. However, we were both delighted by the stylish takes on traditional Indian... More

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

This restaurant was good as have eaten there few times in past. Was one of my favorites of Indian fine dining in Singapore. 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

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
