“Don't waste your money.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

Entree was excellent - chicken tikka. Main course terrible. Lack of proactive service and had to constantly ask and chase. Tried to pass off Beefeater as Bombay. Good atmosphere but overall experience poor. Terrible value for money given the price.

“Great experience, again :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile


Had business guests in town who wanted to try good Indian food. We selected Song of India considering our previous experience there. This place has a unique ambience than all other Indian restaurant, esp due to its location being in the old colonial bungalow. Each time you walk in there, the place gives you such an unique feel that you feel like sitting there for a longer time. Even though place was well occupied, we were seated quickly and attended to promptly. We were looking for something different from the usual Indian food and Chef Manju was kind enough to help us go through the various options and help us choose the food. Tomato Shorba and the chaat platter which we took as starter was awesome and just the way we wanted to start the evening. As part of main course, we liked mirchi ka salan which was lot different from what we had at other places in Singapore. As dessert, Mango Kulfi was the most suitable choice to finish the meal. Overall, lovely food and a lovely evening spend thanks to the Song of India team. Would look forward to next trip there soon.

Me and my friends went for the lunch buffet , we tried almost all the dishes , good food with quite a bit spread , but its worth to have this buffet at such a affordable price.

“Nice ambience but disappointing food...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Would give this establishment an average rating at best as its ambience saved it for being poor. Overall nice presentation and ok service but food was certainly below my expectations.
