“The Indian Restaurant at the Holiday Inn on Orchard Street”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The restaurant is located in the basement of the Holiday Inn.

We visited the restaurant for dinner as we had just flown into SIngapore and checked into the Hotel....

Food: We ordered vegetarian food, and the food was delicious, in good quantity, and well presented.

Service: Too slow, needs major improvement. Did not have regular glass for the kids to sip water... no way they could handle giant wine goblets.

No regular sugar - only Splenda

Its seems no one orders mineral water here. it took they 10 minutes to get us bottle water at room temperature (heated in the microwave).

The ambience: Quiet... I wonder why: Probably the price... expensive.

The restaurant is listed on Amex's website offering a discount, but the Manager refused citing 'Festive Season' - we visited on 23rd of December... so no major occasion.

Options: There are 2 Indian restaurants situated at a stone's throw... in Cuppage Plaza/ Terrace (the route from the Holiday Inn Hotel to Orchard Street)

Would I visit again...? probably NO.

“ood is ok, but service should definitely improve”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

When I'm in Singapore I usually stay at the Holiday Inn Orchard, which is conveniently located and good standard. The Tandoor North India Restaurant is in the basement and represent an excellent option if you don't want to go out and search in the thousands of restaurants around Orchard.
Food is very good, if you like the indian cuisine (a bit spicey for my taste, but ok)
Price is relatively high, but affordable (abt 120 S$ for a full dinner a la carte, it's 80 €)
Only issue is service: very formal but they leave your dirty cutlery on the table... and they are slow, so slow... 1 hour and a half for a simple dinner is simplly too long (even if I had nothing else to do :-) !)

“Decent food but over priced for one person.”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

On my own, so portions like the rice are for two, hence the cost. No real starter selection so ended up ordering two mains. Fatal mistake. Keema naan was good.
