We've been recommended this place for a good Indian. It was ok but we were not impressed by what we had, or let's say it this way, we had much better elsewhere. We saw hanging on the wall pictures with the word Tamil. So probably this is tamil cuisine that we are not used to taste. We are more often... More

Great food, spicy and hearty. Staff are attentive and friendly. Its difficult to go to Dempsey Hill & choose to dine at a different resturant other than Samy's Curry, especially since Indian food is probably my favourite! The mutton is to die for and they are obviously doing something right with their mutton dishes! Accompany your food with a cold... More

This veritable curry house has been serving up Masala flower crabs and fish head curry at the foot of Dempsey hill for many a year and predates most if not all of the more recent restaurants and bars here. If you like your fish head curry spicy this is the place to go. Food served on banana leaf, free flow... More

Three adults and 4 kids 5 to 13 years. Authentic restaurant in great setting - highly recommended to seek it out. Very super fast service. I recommend order a few different dishes and some naan and sharing with others. Mango lassi 10/10!

Highly overpriced indian food. All Pre-cooked, and rather small servings. Many other places offer better quality and more value for money.

If you want up-market, romantic, exotic, or a range of wine with your Indian food, this place is not for you. If you want a really interesting experience, with as basic and good as it gets Singapore Indian food, then head to Samy's. Interesting location, near the city central areas, and with a few other local-looking places in the same... More

We always make a point of eating here whenever we are in Singapore. The best Indian food we've had in a very relaxed, informal setting. We'll be back, again!
