From start to finish, it had been a lovely experience. The walk around the farm & then the little restaurant/cafe right in the midst of greenery is really an experience to behold.
Food was fresh & I savoured every bite.

I have been stopping here regularly for lunch, on a round the island weekend cycle ride. The history and environment of Bollywood Veggies is fascinating, and I never tire of wandering round the garden to see how many variety of bananas are growing. Poison Ivy restaurant is basic, but the food is amazing. I like the Banana curry with brown rice. At weekends the restaurant is full of families with young children plus the occasional coach tour. The staff are very attentive and if you're lucky, you get to meet and talk with Ivy, the owner, who is definitely a legend in her own lifetime! This is a part of Singapore unlike any other - and let's hope it stays so.

Tucked away in the back woods of Singapore's Kranji, Poison Ivy continues to wow with it's interpretation of SE Asian fare. The warrior curry and curry chap chye are yummy; as for the brown rice, tastiest we've ever had !! Best of all, Ivy herself was there and engaged us all with her warm banter!

This restaurant is way out in Kranji, surrounded by trees and a massive vegetable and fruit garden .,.. That's the appeal. Food is really good. Prepared from home grown ingredients without the use of MSG and too much salt or oil.

Believe it's recipes are almost nonya. Ranging from banana curry, jackfruit lemak to chicken lemongrass stew or curry Lots of vegetarian food. Lots to choose from!!

We are frequent "visitors" . Never disappointed . If you've not tried you must.

Paired with the herb garden/fruit farm Bollywood Veggies, and run by the larger-than-life Ivy, it's become something of an institution for us.

The menu is quite short and unchanging, but several tasty curries and fried starters (Moringa Tempura of note) make it a tasty meal each time and the sago and banana bread puddings sate any hunger with ease. Walk it off with a short walk around the farm/garden or nearby Sungei Buloh.
