Institution.

The dining experience cosists of fragrant rice (white or saffron), dhal, assorted veggies, choice of meat (chicken or fish) - while seated at the alfresco area watching the ever-polite servers keeping themselves busy. Just like in the old days.

Took 2 of my friends to Samy's. From the 'plates' - banana leaves, delicious curry, fish, chicken, shrimp, their own special lime drink - excellent. A reservation during peak times is important. Ask to be on the outside veranda.

We had the banana leaf set, the smallest fish head curry they had, tandoori chicken, fried cauliflower and some mutton dish. We would have been happy with just the rice and fish head curry as everything else was mediocre. Papadams were good and they are happy to give you seconds if you ask. In fact they would give you more... More

Samy's always the best after an over indulgent evening. The right flavours of the rice and curry and excellent mutton and chicken and the prawns. Been going back for years.

Went with a group of friends for lunch at Samy's. Dempsey area is close to town and parking is free (really rare in Singapore these days)! Despite being a Monday, the restaurant was 80 percent full when we arrived at 12:45pm. It was a hot afternoon and the intelligent staff suggested seating us in the air-conditioned area. Fiery curry on... More

Went there with a group of friends and ordered the fish head, prawns, mutton masala, squid, cauliflower and butter chicken. The service was extremely helpful and courteous considering there were 15 of us and we kept changing our minds. Apart from the mutton masala the food was quite average

I've been to Samy's many times over the years since 1997. The location (in Dempsey Road) hasn't changed, but the surroundings, ambience etc have have. It's just not as much fun as the old days. Today's Samy's is much more expensive, and the helpings a bit on the mean side. The food just doesn't seem as tasty. If you must... More

We went as a family of four and enjoyed the food throughly. We ordered the masala chicken, mysore mutton, fish head curry and biryani rice. The food is served with cabbage curry and cucumber raita in a banana leaf, which is like a coolant for the spicy and tasty curry's. You can ask for a helping of vegetarian sambar, chicken... More
