I never miss a chance to eat at the Singh Restaurant when i am in Mombasa. The food is to die for. The clientele are of all races but perhaps 50% of them are Asian which goes to show how authentic the food is.The non-smoking room is air conditioned and the toilets are spotless, not a statement you can make...

Don't call yourself an Indian if you've been to Mombasa and not eaten at Singh Restaurant. I live in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania - And occasionally drive down all the way to Mombasa just for their food, its worth it :)

Excellent pricing and excellent taste - That's all I can say. I visit this place every time I am in Mombasa. The menu is exhaustive and have tried out several items - veg as well as non veg. I am not specifying anything in particular as all of them are fantastic. My favorites are the dry items though. The place... More

Located in the bustling town of Mombasa, getting there may be tricky and parking space is quite limited. However the reward for that is great tasty food with unbeatable prices. The food arrives quite fast and served by courteous waiters who never get the order wrong. Try the Goan fish curry or mutton masala served with plenty of roti. Part... More

In April 1962, as Mombasa was growing into one of East Africa's busiest ports, Dalip Singh Wilkhu had a vision. While working as a signal operator for East African Railways, he was inspired to feed arriving visitors while preparing packaged meals for those preparing to depart.

Singh Restaurant was born. Since then, Singh Restaurant has fed generations of people from various walks of life... Providing lunches and dinners for entire groups of workers, for families, for individuals... And becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region, and drawing visitors from nearby cities such as Nairobi and Dar es Salaam.

Our success comes from high quality in all aspects of our business, from the food we serve, to our operational efficiency, to the atmosphere we provide our visitors from the moment they walk in, until the moment they depart.

Our quality of food and quality of service has helped Singh Restaurant gain recognition as the most highly recommended Indian restaurant in Mombasa by sources including TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet.
