If it isn't it should be! What a poor excuse for a restaurant. In a country with some of the finest Indian food, this place is a let down. And the service? They don't understand the term. Just say 'no'.

We had an overseas guest and was looking for a nice restaurant (which had vegetarian options) near the Marina Bay area, where we could admire the skyline after our dinner. We dined at Mirchi on a Tuesday evening. Food was excellent! Service was good. The waiter was helpful. The price was definitely reasonable too, considering the area. Would be nicer... More

Wanted to have Indian preparations after roaming around the Merlion park at One Fullerton. Most of the eating places around were serving sea food. This restaurant in Esplanade mall on second floor was a nice alternative. Good and tasty food made to your order, and as per your requirement. Our kids wanted less chilly, and no milk preparation. They did... More

We hopped by Mirchi on a weeknight when the craving for hot spicy Indian food hit us. I quite like the entrance to the restaurant, the glass panels and red stained glass that adds a pop of colour is very beautiful. The decor and ambiance are quite nice. We ordered a Kadhai Paneer, Baingan Bhartha, Veg Biryani (that comes with... More

Visited here on a weekday and there was only 1 other party in the restaurant, so the ambience and atmosphere was lacking a bit. Food was great though - we were in a large group and shared a bunch of dishes... all of which were tasty, spicy and cooked to order. Would definitely come back, but might try a Friday... More

Indian Restaurant in Esplanade mall.. Average Indian food , reaonable prices, slow service - only one guy attending all the tables... Curries were fine but quantity was really less... Ambiance was average indeed and can be improved to attract more tourists... Overall, an average experience for Indian Cuisine but the only one in the sarroundings...

Cliched Indian restaurant. Ambiance - cheap decor. Felt like it was a hole in a wall. Although restaurant was clean. Service - courteous, but could have been a lot warmer, more welcoming and more attentive. They weren't any of that. Food - good. Could get something similar elsewhere for much cheaper. The evening didn't leave a bad taste in our... More

I visited there yesterday. Generally they ask for one day prior reservation, we were not able to book it in advance but on our request they entertained us. Food was also nice. Mirchi Pakora was one of the finest 'Pakoras' I ever had in Singapore.Tandoori Chicken was also good. Their Signature dish 'Chicken Shahjhan ' deserves a thumps up. They... More

The restaurant scores on location, décor and staff. But the food leaves you wanting for more. Either in portion sizes or taste. Its not bad, but that's exactly what you don't want.

What can I say...The FOOD on this night 27 Oct was excellent Northern Indian fare - fresh ingredients, tasty Goan Fish Curry, sumptuous Aloo Gobi, delicious Tikka Masala. Thank You Mirchi @ Esplanade. The service on the other hand, in spite of the restaurant only a quarter full, was not great...needs work ...and waiters could be more attentive to patrons.... More

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
