Ordered on line for pick up in 30 min. Straight and easy for pick up. The food is good too, Prawn biriany taste was well balanced, the spiciness of the prawn sauce and the combination of the biriany was good. Paneer with spinach curry was...ordered also, The taste was a bit different from what I'm used , a bit to the sour side, but it was ok. The kitchen and the environment looks very clean.More

My 5 stars are solely based on their chicken, mutton briyani & the mutton fried rice that my family & i have enjoyed numerous times! Their chicken briyani ($11) is the closest to a proper homemade briyani! We usually get take away & i recommend...take away in this case cause 1 take-away serving of their chicken briyani is more than enough for 2 ppl! Chicken is well cooked, spices are just right & authentic. My fiance's fav from here is their mutton fried rice & he says it's one of the best around here too.More

Our first time at this restaurant. Fish head should'nt be cooked with coconut milk to get the Indian Taste. Should use punch poora to get the kick taste and smell just like Muthu's Curry & Banana Leaves. Fried Okra or Ladies Finger is a No..No......It's tasteless. But their Chicken Masala, Lamb curry and prawn masala are not that bad. We will never come back again. Sorry...More

If you are in little India area in Singapore and don’t taste the food here- it’s waste! They serve delicious food with good service as well. Try the fishhead curry- their speciality :)

Two of us went here for dinner. This place is near Mustafa's a store open 24x7 hours in a part of Singapore called Little India. After a wait of about 5 minutes a waiter appeared. The waiter, a man who looked glum, and unfriendly asked...what we wanted to order. My co-diner ordered a meat (lamb or mutton) briyani, a dish containing rice to which some sort of spice sauce is added, and therefore not white as one would expect of rice. I ordered a prawn dish. We also ordered drinks -- we had lassi, a yoghurt drink. After a wait of about 10 mins, the same waiter arrived with our orders; he just carelessly and indifferently slid the plates on the table. There was no cutlery perhaps as diners typically consumed their food with their fingers, as is the custom at Indian restaurants. I asked for cutlery and he glared at me. I thought he was being very rude. He brought the cutlery, dropping them on the table, as it were. Never one to accept rude behaviour, I asked him why he was treating us and the food in the way he did. He just glared at me. Perhaps he had some problems. He should not be serving if he had other things on his mind -- he added no value to the restaurant, but detracted from what little value the restaurant was offering. My companion in response to my question about his briyani said, that it was very, very ordinary. I noticed that the prawns were not properly cleaned as the the digestive tracks of the prawns were still on them. It seemed to me that all the cook had done was to throw in some rice into pre-cooked prawn curry of sorts to coat the rice so as to give it a "curry look". And it was piquant or really hot in the spice sense. Really bad quality.More

Offers Table service. Located near the Mustafa Centre and no parking available. Air conditioned restaurant and it offers various types of Indian cuisine and food tastes good. Clean restaurant and offers table service. Price-wise in the mid-range. I would go back again.
