This quaint, tucked away, old-school vegetarian restaurant is totally underrated. Their thali meal, appam, ghee dosai, pongal and vadai, and just every single thing is amazing! The food is inexpensive, and yet just plain fantastic! Authentic South Indian food that is reminiscent of the food...More

We had puris and vadai which were both delicious. Serving sizes are smaller than expected but it's no problem as prices are low. Woodlands is a good alternative but to my taste not quite as good as Komala Vilas or MTR1924. Your mileage may vary.

With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander
past traditional barbershops while local residents in
brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from
decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful
shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge.
Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,
