I had the VIP thali which came rice and biryani as well as couple of puri. Vegetables and Dahl as well as sambar and rasam. They generously top up the vegetables. Nice flavor and decent amount of spice.

I returned here last month for some dosas - first visit for the new year. 3 dosas and 3 masala teas for $23. Service was a little slower than usual but otherwise all good. Back again soon.

We first went to the New Woodlands back in 1989 on our first Singapore trip, though the location may have changed since then, so decided on a repeat visit to see if the thalis were as we remembered. We were not disappointed. One never knows...More

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
