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

When I arrived I was immediately pounced on by the owner. He was very pushy and essentially trying to force me to spend more money. He keep trying to sell me different and move expensive items, and drinks when all I wanted was a dosa. The Dosa was very soggy and limp and not crispy like I hoped. I was... More

Went at 7:30 am for b/fast and we were greeted with hot piping south indian food. Great tasting. And within 10 min the place was full. So its obvious they are well known esp amongst the south Indians. Cheap food too! We paid less than 20$ for so many items we ate

This restaurant has the best dosas and vadais in Singapore. The desserts are great too. Have not tried their thalis, but judging from the standard of ther food, I bet its quite good too. I go back there for my dosa fix every couple of months. A must go if you like Indian food.

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.
