Had the beriyani, gobi cauliflower, fried chicken and mango lassi. The rice was so nice and warm, chicken was crispy and cauliflower was so sweet. The aunty was so friendly and generous with the rice and curry portion.

I really liked it here. The place is a bit scruffy, but it is clean. The service is good enough. The food is awesome. I love a good curry and this is right up my street. Rive served on a banana leaf with your choice of 'gravy'. Choose the meats or veg you want to go with it and there's... More

Some of the buffet selection looks and tastes a little bit tired -after peak hours. On the whole, was ok.

Not as good as expected. The facility is basic, nothing fancy. Food taste is average, limited choices. Service is average. With the facility given, price should be cheaper.

Decided to have curry for dinner on Saturday evening given the rainy season lately. Tried Foodpanda delivery as was lazy to get out of the house. Food was still warm and taste was delicious when delivered. Ordered the fish curry . Loved the taste . Spicy yet wanting to have more of the gravy . It complimented well with both... More

Have eaten here twice now, and is becoming one of my favourites when in Singapore. A great South Indian style curry fix - and a very nice place to sit and enjoy a cold beer with your food. It is housed in an old colonial style building with a verandah and fans for those who want a 'tropical' experience -... More

I am not a curry fan at all. But this place may have been the best food I ate for my entire trip in Singapore. Tucked away off the beaten path, it is what I would consider your hidden gem of dining. Very humble service and very accommodating. We sampled every item they had except the fish head soup and... More

Very over rated place, food was pre cooked and chicken was completely dried by re cooking it. Place looks run down and dirty, waiter was very unfriendly and smelly. Would recommend to go to another foodcourt place, better quality and half the price.

Ok- this place is probably a local secret- it is NOT a 5 star cuisine dining restaurant- its looks hide what you will get and that is amazing real no frills Indian food. There are definitely no frills here but it's the best Indian I have ever eaten! There are no plates and to my knowledge no menu that I... More

Don't expect fancy table cloths and fine dining but just a family run restaurant that has been serving up authentic Indian cuisine. The late Mr Veerasamy arrived in Singapore in 1950 and in 1963 started a road side stall before opening his Samy's Curry in 1970 on Pearl's Hill. 5 years later he moved to Dempsey Road and the rest...
