Good South Indian food!

Komala Vilas one of the legendary restaurants in Singapore, been around for ages now and still continues to be popular among locals as well as tourists. The food is served on the traditional banana leaf which makes the experience very enjoyable :)

I would say this is one of the best South Indian Vegetarian Restraurant in Singapore. Mid priced, do not expect hi-service levels as management being run as old school style and traditional. Nevertheless the staffs are attentive and reasonable.

We went here and tried their bathura. It was delicious and came with hot thick fries. We also ordered the salt lassi and I must say that that was also quite refreshing. I would definitely love to go there again to try their other mouth watering dishes.

This is an average looking place with a medium-high price tag for the items served. Food is good, especially the authentic Sambar. It's yumm! Do try this when you visit Singapore.

Komala vilas arguably remains one of the best South Indian food restaurants in Singapore . I have been there multiple times over the last 10 years and the quality and consistency of the food remains excellent. My preference is for the Sunday rice meal, which has an excellent variety of vegetables. The service at both of its outlets ( serangoon... More

We tried Komala Vilas during our Singapore visit just because our PM Modi dined here during his last visit. We went for dinner and found that the place was little crowded, bit overpriced and lack of cleanliness when compared to our regular restaurant. The service was also slow and the lady at the counter was bit rude and declined to... More

Visited several times since 2010! Good food, express service, sumptuous meals! But they can improve on the appearance near wash area and entry to kitchen as it leaves a question mark on cleanliness but nevertheless to say I am a regular customer and I have never had any Gastrointestinal problems so far after consuming food there!

Komala Vilas has always been the iconic Indian vegetarian restaurant in Singapore for decades. It pulls such a crowd that you are always waking in line anytime of he day. Their meals are generous and tasty. A very good value for money.

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.
