“Fish Head Curry”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

While Muthu's serves a variety of dishes this is what they are known for. Easy walk from the Farrer Park MRT Station in Little India.

“Scrumptious”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

One of my favorite places for Indian food. While there are many other more affordable places in Little India, Muthu's is always a crowd pleaser. It's one of my usual picks for Indian food and my friends have always agreed that it's a great choice.

“Soggy rice, cold curry”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Visited the Suntec branch with friend for lunch. We got there early hence it was rather empty. Ordered two curry dishes with white rice.
Pappadum was available while we wait for our meal. It's tasty but gets soft really fast.
Took about 15 mins before dishes arrived (we had to get refill of the pappadum after frantically trying to get their attention).
Rice arrived steaming hot but was disappointing because it was soggy and nothing like basmati rice that you'd expected from a good curry house.
We had the chicken Marsala which was piping hot and pretty good but the lamb curry stirfry with cashew nuts was horrible! It was served luke warm and tasted fatty. It was dry and the meat was tough and tasted like days old curry.

Overall, not a good experienced and will probably not visit if I can help it.

“Best Fish head curry! Mind the spice levels”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This is my fav spot to sample the famous Singapore Fish Head Curry! They serve free rice; popaddams & veg curry with all dishes. Also go for the Dry pepper mutton with draft tiger beer to wash it all down. However, mind the spice levels.... if you are unaccustomed to Indian spice levels, you will definitely break a sweat

“Authentic cuisine!”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Go and enjoy your food served on a banana leaf as plate and use your hands if you like, as many people do in this restaurant.
Food is good quality for the price you pay, and it is actually quite nice.
The place is packed with locals enjoying their food much. The draft beer jugs are very refreshing.
Food comes either immediately or takes quite a while. I suggest you order something that is already prepared first (there is an area where you can see what it is available right away) and then ordered other dishes immediately soyo can have your food cooing as you eat.
The place is very close to little India main street and there is a big public parking right in front of the restaurant, at 50 cents per 30 minutes on weekends.
