“Delicious with great atmosphere”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We dined here last week, and were very impressed with the dishes we ordered:
1. Vegetable samosas (not the standard defrosted variety)
2. Fish tikka (yum)
3. Butter chicken (absolutely delicious)
4. Eggplant/Brinjal curry (standout dish)

The service was impressive from the moment we were seated, the wait staff were warm, enthusiastic and provided good recommendation including the Portuguese wine which I very much enjoyed. We were seated upstairs, a quieter area than below, with barefoot dining and seating on cushions with tables low to the floor. The intimate and casual feel made for a great dinning experience.

Highly recommend this place and will certainly be returning the next time we are in Singapore.

“Absolutely lovely place ”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Nice place, extremely friendly staff and delicious food. I've tried tandoori fish and it was fabulous! Jusy and tasty. If you are not "hot chilly eater" this could be an option as other dishes tend to be hot. Highly recommend this place!

“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.
