It is a British era bungalow house converted into a restaurant. We all felt jawdropping on the moment we went in. The lunch menu had 1 veg starter(Tandoori... More

If you ever feel like eating authentic North Indian food at the most awesome Black and White Bunglow just off Orchard Road, Song of India is the place to be. The food (both Ala-Carte and Buffet) is awesome and elaborate, servers are well mannered and trained to remember your order and not write it down. Decor is stylish and colonial.... More

Situated on Scotts Road in a converted colonial villa. Decor doesn't quite live up to expectations. Service a bit pretentious - attempts to offer high class but doesn't always deliver. Waiter opened another (expensive) bottle of water without asking us first, and served the wrong beer from what was ordered. Food is very tasty, albeit rich and heavy with gravy.... More

first time I enjoyed dessert at an indian restaurant. food was pretty good. service was warm, if just a tad laid back. the staff know their menu pretty well, which is rather unusual these days. nice ambience. would come back again.

Hmmm so where do I begin.... Ok so we went to Song of India for lunch. The restaurant is housed in a nice old style bungalow on scotts road which was our main attraction. The building was impressive. We were ushered into a large seating area not lit very brightly. The place smelled a bit stale to us and reminded... More

We've fallen in love with Indian food since moving to Singapore and the food experience at Song of India is terrific. We enjoyed a couple of appetisers and main courses and were thrilled with each of them: fresh ingredients, uniquely and carefully prepared, and well cooked. That said, we found the atmosphere overly formal, the prices way too high, and... More

Had been here couple of years ago and loved the ambience and decor of the place. Their wine list had struck me as impressive and so we went again to celebrate the start of 2014. Been meaning to write a review ever since! The ambience and decor continue to remain the only highlights of the place. Service was terrible and... More
