Vanakkam🙏🏼 "Today's Special Menu" items are seasonal. Regular items everyone knows what to order or expect. In doubt ask the waiters they will say what they have. Locals 🇸🇬 can venture to the today's special. Tourists 🌐 opt for the regular items: Light Eaters - Paper thosai or appam w/ red sugar & coconut Heavy Eaters - Full South-Indian vegetarian... More

I've been coming to this restaurant with my family for the longest time. Don't need the menu anymore. The best appam, rava dosai, masala dosai... Freshly made, friendly crew. You can't go wrong when you see so many regulars.

Long time Singaporeans told me of this place and after many trips, finally able to enjoy it on a Saturday morning, before the hoards arrived. Great Prata and other breaded items, so tasty with authentic sauces. Staff are friendly and easygoing. Reminder some of the items are finished (sold out) by around 1030a. So get there early for a table... More

My friend and I went to many Indian restaurants during our stay in Little India. I had some of the best food of my entire life during this time and Woodlands topped them all. The food is absolutely divine and the staff is very friendly. I cannot recommend this place enough.

My friends couldn't eat all of it, but I like this kind of meal. You can see the huge size of Batura and Dosa. The dishes served will provide you the taste of sweet, sour, and spicy what Indian have. Have a great journey to feel the atmosphere of India!!

In comparison to the choices available - this one is quite bad...it boasts of a 4.5 rating which might be quite old. Good things is that it is not priced high and the menu is rather simplistic but it ends there.

For traditional South Indian snacks, my favorite restaurant in Singapore. Despite the rise of many newer restaurants, this place retains its quality and homely atmosphere. Expect to see some of Singapore's who's who at the restaurant enjoying the food. Service is simply superb-the staff know many of their customers by their first name.

Vegitarian Restaurant in the Little India. You can enjoy variety of vegetarian foods here with the aircon. Today we enjoyed breakfast here, masala tosai and masala tea. Very yummy. We tried lunch the other day and it's also tasty. The rest. is very specious and clean. Staff can understand English. Many local people come to have breakfast casually. Lots of... More

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.
