Had Sunday lunch here. Hugh portions of food. Unlimited papadum to soak up all the wonderful curries. The lime juice which came in big cups were great to wash all the rich food down.

We visited Samy's on a stopover to Singapore recently as we wanted to sample the fish-head curry for which the restaurant is famous. As well as this we the paneer cheese with veg, the assorted naan breads and fried pomfret. All was consumed on an environmentally sustainable setting of a banana leaf! Highly recommended.

Samy's Curry is the go to place for fantastic curry and rice. Our favourite is Fish Head Curry and the Fried Fish. It is situated in Dempsey Hill, which has a great feel to it as an area. But this is not a posh restaurant, it is a hybrid of restaurant and food court environment. You will never see this... More

The serving size is very generous - I ordered a small one and it was definitely enough for 2 people to share (perhaps with a couple extra sides), medium and large sizes must be huge. Chicken tandoori wasn't that great though, deep fried and very dry. Rice and side veggies are... More

A very traditional Indian restaurant where you can eat with fingers also you have no plate. Your plate is a banana leaf. Yummy food and a great experience . Just be careful if you use fingers to eat it will be hard to take the stain of curry of your fingers nails! The place has no luxury but food is... More

Samy's Curry was very crowded for a weekday lunch but despite the crowd, their staff were very prompt and patient in their service. In terms of the food, they are a tad too spicy but very flavourful and nice. The curry fish head was soft and complemented well with the naan.
