The atmosphere is buzzing with crowd of indians dining in this eatery. The orders were taken quickly and without fuss. The food arrived a bit delayed but the waiters were smiling and friendly. Gd service.

FOOD SERVED COLD We had our dinner at Sakunthala Changi Business Park. The food was served cold, Had to request the waiter to warm the chicken dish. The chicken dish was bland and with bones. The staff looked bored and ineffective. The tables and chairs...were uncomfortable. It is not a restaurant quality instead a run off the mill eatery, probably good enough for the foreign ah nehs.More

Sakunthala's at Dunlop Street is one of our first choices to go to when we are in off days. Do note that Sakunthala's has a few branches in Little India but the one in Dunlop Street is our favourite and is often the most crowded...compared to the other outlets. Prices are also cheaper here than in other outlets.We would like to highly recommend this restaurant.service was very good.our waitress Mr Prabhakaran is an adorable blonde,very personable and very efficient.Food was very yummy.I strongly recommend the briyani rice, Mysore mutton, chicken sambal, vegetarian foods,fish curry juicy pal appam,payasam and more.(ALL DELICIOUS MEALS)Thank you!!!!More

We ate some plain briyani with some mutton varuval. The meat dish was so different in texture. I simply wonder whether it was a recycled a few times and reheated. It tasted very imittaion. We saw many adverts promoting this restaurant. So wanted to give...a try. Hmm....though ambience was good, meat dises needs alot of improvement.More

Loved the authenticity of it all. Only non-Indians when we went; served on banana leaves; didn’t fuss over us; delicious dosa and veggie Thali. Great experience. Good price.

Sakunthala's has a modern decor which is more international than Indian (no Ganesha's, no Lakshmi's, no sitars strumming in the background etc) - and is a restaurant where the food, freshly prepared, is the focus. The comprehensive menu features a wide choice of traditional and...authentic vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes and offers them at reasonable prices. Service is friendly and efficient, with tables turning mostly within the hour. A useful address for Little India visitors - but less so for marriage proposals. Viator ColoniaeMore

Do note that Sakunthala's has a few branches in Little India but the one in Dunlop Street is my favourite and is often the...most crowded compared to the other outlets. Prices are also cheaper here than in other outlets. If you are a fan of prawn, do order their Malabar prawns. Its usually sold out fast so you got to go earlier during lunch to try this item that is actually NOT in the menu :)More

Granted they have a few branches but service quality varies so it depends very much on the manager
