“Great satay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Just to get the ho hum taste of "fusion Asian" out of my mouth (see my last review) I decided to hunt down Singapore Deli, an unpretentious restaurant in the heart of Karama.

This restaurant feels like it belongs to a hawker place in Singapore, though it caters more to the Indonesian side of that melting pot of a city. The satay is great, with the right balance of peanut goodness and spices. Sadly, the Lhaksa soup was a slight letdown.it had cucumber strips, which was a weird surprise. At 30dhs, it was a fairly steep letdown (for hawker style fare).

Next time I'll try the noodles or rice dishes.

Authentic restaurants like these should be encouraged because they make stronger statements than run of the mill (upscale) restaurants who could exist anywhere in the planet.

“Taste like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Nasi lemak is better than Noodle Bowl in Satwa or Noodle Bowl in Zayed Sport City. Love the nasi lemak sambal.Kuey Tiew is awesome. Sup Buntut is heavenly. Nasi Goreng is just as nice and they have teh tarik as well.

“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

This place is excellent! no descriptions on the menu but that doesnt matter - order anything and it will be great! get the blended milo, and any of the dishes with chicken. quite spicy but you can ask them to make it a bit milder, staff are great too.
