“Fantastic!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Best Indian food we've had while travelling. Our waiter was lovely and very helpful. The restaurant was basic but looked very clean. We ordered daal, butter chicken, palak paneer, veg kofta and garlic naan. All were delicious. I don't eat chicken but the others were saying it was the best butter chicken they've ever had. Would highly recommend this place.

“My last visit to this resturant”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The quality of food and taste are deteriorating on my every visit, may be they don't like me :-). I never wanted to go here at the first place but my friends insisted and like I every time I was disappointed. With my older experience of eating heavily spiced/tomato "Indo-Chinese food" I tried to go for something that every North Indian restaurant should do well - "Tandoori Chicken". I did get Tandoori Chicken but at least half of it burnt. It was mostly black on one side and on other the meaty part was having the burnt crunchy black flakes all around. Serving staff is too less for a restaurant having a seating capacity of 50+ (just guessing the no. +/- 10).

Chef needs to work hard to really rock this restaurant, it is right on the busy street and looks neat and really has the appetite to attract people but the food, essence of dining surely lacks .

“Food was either too salty or too sweet”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Was highly recommended to try out by a friend - was sadly disappointed by the quality of food and was left nursing indigestion for the rest of the night. The Kheema was super salty, bhatura super sweet and the methi mutter was super sweet as well. The only thing that was dead on was the rice :)

I wondered if the chef/cook was actually tasting their food before it left the kitchen. I will not be going there anytime soon.

“One of the few restaurants in Singapore which comes closest to taste from India”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

It is genuinely difficult to find non South Indian food in Singapore. Though very good local Indian food is available at hawker centers and various chains like Apollo Leaf, Gayatri, Samy's Curry, to find decent North Indian and Indian Chinese food is a struggle. That is where Copper Chimney comes to rescue. All the dishes, while not excellent are close to authentic. The biryani is actually made on dum & the naan is not roti prata dough shaped in oval.
Just a pity that they keep on shelving some of our favourite items from menu like Murg Mumtaz & Darsaan. But the recent addition of Lychee Kulfi is excellent. My kids love this place enough to visit at least once in 3 months. So far nothing that we have tasted is negative. A perfect end to shopping spree at Mustafa.

“Shocked”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

If someone knows North Indian food on Syed Alwi Road then those are Copper Chimney people. We ate there in July and had one of the best meals in Singapore (we had tried 4 more restaurants on same road and it was our second last day there). They were a bit costly than others at SGD 20 per person but the food was good and we had a hearty meal there. Not sure about other cuisines but North Indian good is of best quality (we ate that only) .

Shocked to see them at 900+ Rank on TripAdvisor. It seems I need to explore more restaurants on my next trip. Will keep you posted when I do that.
