This is a legendary restaurant on the island located right next to the Sikh temple. Contrary to misconceptions, it does not have anything to do with the temple and is not run by the temple. It's a rather simple restaurant with 2 seating areas; 1 air conditioned and 1 not. The décor is nothing to write home about so don't expect a fine dining atmosphere but it is clean, functional and very well run. I always go for the ac'd room. The waiters are amazing and have been there for many many years. They know the menu by heart and will advise you what to order.
If you want a simple curry, this is the place. You will not get the typical buttery creamy rich north Indian curries, rather less rich home made authentic simply spiced curries. My favourite dishes would be the Mari Chicken (black pepper), Jeera Chicken (cumin), Chicken Curry, Prawns Masala and Fish Masala. Really lovely curries. All of them. They also have an excellent selection of vegetable curries on offer. Another fantastic concept is that they continue to bring you hot hot freshly made chapatis until you are full and tell them to stop. Along with the meal they serve a sliced vegetable salad consisting of tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, red onions, green chillies and lettuce.
This place has been there since the 50's and is an institution in it's own right. My father has been taking me to Singhs since I was born and I hope to continue the tradition. You must go. I always do when I'm in Mombasa.
