“Different, friendly and fun”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant in Little india. The staff are just lovely, it is relaxed and casual and you can either eat upstairs barefoot on the floor or downstairs at table and chairs. Upstairs is air-conditioned and just really relaxed, with short tables and cushions, which was fun.

The food is excellent, a must try is the yoghurt rice and the prawn curry. However all the food we had, was really good indian food. The atmosphere and friendly and very light hearted staff alone puts this place on the come again list.

“Very entertaining and unique restaurant for Indian food”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We visited this restaurant while on a guided tour through Little India, Singapore. The interesting part about this restaurant is the spiciness ladder and who have met the challenge and thus got a clothe peg on the line. We decided to go to Lagnaa for lunch after the guided tour as we wanted to try the barefoot dining room up on the second floor. You will have to remove your shoes as you will be sitting down on the ground. So if you are worried about adding additional "aroma" to the surrounding, stay on the first floor. The second floor is decorated simply and the tables are really low, thus the seats on the floor. There is a round padded mat for you to sit on but we were not used to sitting on the floor so we were shifting into different positions every few minutes.

The food is very good. Had butter chicken, chicken masala, lamb and spinach with naan. We went for a the minimum level of spiciness and it is tolerable. According to the waitress, the chef can only take up to level 3. Oh, the waitress will sit down on the floor next to you to give you the menus and talk to you.

It was very quiet for us that day and we had the whole room to ourselves until near the end of our meal when 2 other patrons came up. The down side of sitting upstairs is that they may forget you were there after they delivered the food. So if you need some thing, you might have to go back down. A "I need service" bell might be good thing to have.

The lasi was very good and, according to someone who loves Indian food, best she has ever tasted.

Tip - if you want to have a glass of cold water, just go to the back door that leads to the restroom and you will see glasses and a water dispenser, so you an get your own water any time.

“a fantastic meal every time”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Have been visiting Lagnaa for about a year now and have a fantastic time every time! I recently visited and as it was my birthday month was treated to some wine. The service is so friendly, above any other I have received in Singapore. I always feel completely welcome. The food is wonderful, full of flavour with new options each month. I can't recommend a visit more.

“great food”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

This is another gem in Little India. Unfortunately the upstairs section was booked out, but we managed to get a table downstairs. The waitress was exceptionally friendly and was readily available for any questions we had. The food was traditional and very tasty. Slightly pricy, but well worth it.
