Description: In April 1962, as Mombasa was growing into one of East Africa's busiest ports, Dalip Singh Wilkhu had a vision. While working as a signal operator for East African Railways, he was inspired to feed arriving visitors while preparing packaged meals for those preparing to depart. Singh Restaurant was born. Since then, Singh Restaurant has fed generations of people from various walks of life... Providing lunches and dinners for entire groups of workers, for families, for individuals... And becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region, and drawing visitors from nearby cities such as Nairobi and Dar es Salaam. Our success comes from high quality in all aspects of our business, from the food we serve, to our operational efficiency, to the atmosphere we provide our visitors from the moment they walk in, until the moment they depart. Our quality of food and quality of service has helped Singh Restaurant gain recognition as the most highly recommended Indian restaurant in Mombasa by sources including TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet.

I have been dining at Singh Restaurant for almost 20 years and this place is impeccable in service and above all the food is scrumptious! We recently visited Kenya. It is one of the MUST places to eat in Mombasa. Very traditional fresh hot chappatis and chicken masala. Yummie! Keep up the continued success and folks visiting or living in Mombasa, dont forget to patronize the "Singh Restaurant"
We hope to see a SIngh Restaurant branch in San Francisco!

Singh is one of those restaurants you just can't go wrong with. Food has tasted the same for years now! The ambience is that of a simple but busy household, whose business is to feed its visitors with good food!!

This restaurant was started by a Sikh pioneer - Mr Dalip Singh and is still run as a family business by his son and grandchildren. For every main meal ordered you get hot chapattis to your table - as many as you can eat - Sikh hospitality at its very best. Great punjabi food - they really do go out of their way to cater for vegetarians and it's fully licensened too!

Came across this restaurant through a recommendation from a local Indian and was highly impressed with the quality and taste of the cuisine. The typical Indian restaurants that I have been familiar with in the US tend to have lots of cream in it but this food was very different and tasted over and above other places I have tried.

Would highly recommend and it will be my first stop during my next business trip.
