Don't expect a fancy restaurant as it feels more like a canteen - long tables which seat about 18 people and all tables are placed very closely next to each other. It is also a bit noisy especially during peak times.However,there were plenty of locals with their families which is always a good sign and we were certainly not disappointed by the food.

We sampled the fish head curry as well as some other dishes and everything was just great.I particularly enjoyed the Naan bread with coriander as it was delicious

A must do whenever I am in Singapore. The masala prawns, mutton fry, etc are too die for. The ambiance maybe more like a canteen but this is Indian food that I have not found in India.

I rate this place high because of a few things: 1) Indian cuisine: I really love the Biryani and Tandoori Chicken they serve! It really reminds me of the foods I had in Kerala back in 2011; 2) Waiting service: waiters never hesitant to deliver foods fast and are really hospitable; 3) Cost wise: Very affordable and comes with a bang! and 4) moderate location: walking distance to my hotel room (Amara)!

This is the real thing - a very authentic curry house - but with a funky modern twist (which may end up being common in many places) but is fun as it is new - you order your meal on an iPad fixed to the table! The signature dish - Fish head curry - is delicious - but you have to Order this for two. Every dish I tried is delicious and the kulfi for dessert is gorgeous!

I stopped overnight in Singapore just to eat here again. It is about the 30th time I have been there and it has never failed to impress. It is large, noisy, clean and service is quick. Beer is cold and quick to arrive and the staff are attentive but not in your face.
As always. I had their signature dish fish head curry which comes in a large bowl. Table cloth is a banana leaf, and rice is brought around in a stainless steel bucket and dolloped out for you. Also had Mysore dry curry mutton. This is no fancy restaurant at all but it provides great food quickly and consistently. Price of meal was around $20 including drinks. Outstanding.
