This is my all time favorite restaurant in Singapore. It's quite pricey, so I normally visit their Fortune Centre eat-out place which serves some of the popular dishes from their menu at 70-80% of the price at their fine dining outlet. I have tried many of their localized, veganized dishes, all of which have a very unique taste. My most favourite dish in Gokul's is definitely their Sambar rice. They serve the best sambar rice you'll probably ever have. Some of the other noteworthy dishes are their tandoori items, murtabak, prata. Hungryangmo has rated this as the best vegetarian restaurant in Singapore. So that should tell you something about this place! do visit

If you miss having a good Char Kway Teow, this is the place to go. Our non vegetarian friends thought it weird that we ordered non Indian dishes at an Indian restaurant. If you have not have had a decent vegetarian Char Kway Teow for years, then order that. It doesn't disappoint despite not having garlic and onion to give it a kick.

They boast to have the largest menu selection on the island and I think they are right. From Indian, Chinese, Peranakan, Malay to pastas and pizzas. Of course there are superb Indian food elsewhere, but Gokul serves an excellent choice with great taste.

On the outside, the place looks good. However, the inside is like a cafeteria. Hence, we tend to expect to pay less. Dosa range for S$7-S$9. All other items, including their local fare is S$10-S$16. We tend to spend on average $20/person. That's because we tend to over order.

Service isn't bad and they sure know their extensive menu well. Just expect to eat quick and go if you are visiting on a weekend.

This joint has it all,AMbience,excellent food choices,and well groomed and informed staff.

There are more than 400 dishes displayed in the printed menus.

South/North Indian ,Chinese(including Peranakan)Malay and some Eurasian dishes.

All the dishes are 100%vegetarian.NO eggs, Not even onions and garlic are used.

The food served is quite attractively placed on banana leaves which are then placed on CHINA plates.

Even if you were to try 1 main course a day,and partake in a meal a day,One year is insufficient

to go through ALL the dishes in the MENU.

You may have your food spiced according to your degree of pungency.

The way to order(for non-solo diners) is to request for different types of main courses and then

share those dishes(this used to be called 'COMMUNAL EATING' in olden CHINA.)

i.e.4 of you have a chance of trying 4 different dishes at one sitting.

They also serve a variety of sauces-always try as many sauces-this time around, try 6 different

sauces and stick to the ones which may suit you.

You might mix and match your own sauce with a dish which NORMALLY carries a sauce completely different from the one YOU have selected.

The ingredients used are rather quite fresh and no 2 masalas are the same.

The drinks list has an exotic(all vegetarian/fruits) flavor.

Remember- there is NO repeat NO MSG.

The Masala/Ginger teas are also a delight.

Altogether, this place is priced quite reasonably for the type of food served.

The restaurant also does catering for outside functions.

P.S.

It was first started by one of the two brothers who was a CHIEF-STEWARD with SINGAPORE AIRLINES.

We go to Gokul a lot. The food is good and it is very good value for Singapore. I love the dosas in particular. Customers are a mix of locals and tourists. Go early or expect to queue later on.
