As an Fellow indian, it can be difficult to find for good indian food which really fills you up and satisfies you. I am glad to say that this is considered to be one of those places which does this. Rice will keep coming in while you finish your food on the Banana Leaf provided and the curry and the... More

I love this place, my family has been coming here for ages. The food is always a treat, as well as the vibe. It's a bit more old school than what Singapore normally looks like and there's lots of bars in the Dempsey area to check out for a drink after. Definitely a cool add-on to the Singapore experience. I... More

Whilst Samys has rather overextended its menu recently, the old standbys are still v good: mysore mutton, chicken tikka, fish head curry, etc. All served on a banana leaf with a pile of rice and swilled down with icy draft beer

Not the service, ambiance or other Indian food. The Fish Head Curry was exceptional, but the rest of the meal was average, and servers had minimal English-language skills making ordering an adventure.

Samy's was recommended to us by a coworker who lived in Singapore for many years. This is off the beaten path for tourists but worth the trip! Very reasonable prices, friendly service and great flavor- This family owned and operated establishment is a must on any list of dining places for a visit to singapore! And Dempsy hill is a... More

Samy's Curry is one of the oldest Curry Restaurants in Singapore, situated in an historical colonial house. The Food is served in banana leaves. The ambiente is not high class, nur the food is autentic and realy good. I Love the chicken tikka Marshalls, the dry mutton Curry and the Büroangestellte Rice. The service is typical Indian.

We had a nice lunch here. The only thing we found too oily was the squid. Picture & actual presentation totally off. Naam, fish-head curry, tandoori chicken was delicious.

Probably through all the advertising on various food shows this place has become a bit overpriced, the same - btw excellent - quality of food can be had in Little India for about half the price. If you are only briefly in town you cant miss with this one but if you have more time on your hands dive into... More

Invited by family for lunch. Havent been there for years. The food is still good. Chicken masala as usual spicy and good. Naan has not changed. Portions served are smaller, no complains from me because the quality is there. All of us enjoyed the food. Try the fried promfret. Very nice.
