Have been to the restaurant more than a couple of times, I'd rate the quality of food and service here 2nd to none that i have experienced in an Indian restaurant anywhere in the world. So while I haven't necessarily eaten at all the to be experienced Indian restaurants, I'd still rate this place right up there - their signature cocktails menu is a winner too!

We - Indians - enjoyed our first experience at experimental Indian food at the eponymous venture of Chef Saha in Singapore. I wouldn't rate it as the tastiest Indian meal I've had (Indian food usually tastes better as you go down the $ chain when the food is spicier and unfortunately oilier).

The restaurant is a new comer to the Duxton area and is managed by an affable Indian who's travelled the world, speaks Russian and is a sommelier. What we appreciated the most though was that he was more than happy to customize and make amends to the set menu to adjust to our palate and likings for eg. he replaced my oysters with fish tikka and my wife's veg biryani to a gravy dish with whole-wheat chappatis. The decor matches the occasion but the music can be looked into.

We both opted for the set meals, I got the non-vegetarian meal whilst my wife got the vegetarian fare. These are 6 course meals with additional amuse bouche and optional 6 wine pairing. The meal began with a portion of pappadums and chutneys followed by a guava popsicle. Then came the first amuse bousche which was a fried wheat ball with a gazpacho. Next up was the first course - fish tikka (NV) and potato chat (V). The tikkas were tender whilst my wife liked the puree version of the potato chat - I had a bite too and enjoyed the same. Next up were 3 different types of idlis (NV & V) with espuma of chutney and sambhar. Because they didn't put soda in the bite sized idlis, they did feel a tad dry/hard, but went well with the sambhar - may be they can make slightly bigger and fluffier idlis in the future. The next course was chicken lightly fried in bread crumps (NV) and tandoor cauliflower (V). The chicken was slightly dry for my liking, the cauliflowe was good. And then another amuse bousche of ice. Next up was prawns in dry masala (NV) and crispy fried sliced okra (V) - I loved the prawns, the best of my 5 savoury courses, had a bit of zing, the okra was good but way too big a portion. And then the final savoury course, lamb biryani (NV) and specially crafted cottage cheese with peas in cream sauce & chappati (V). The biryani was light and the pomegrante added a different dimension to the taste. I didn't taste the V main course, but my wife approved of that too. Lastly, they only had pear kulfi on the menu which was more of a sorbet (water instead of traditional milk kulfi) so I requested for a change and am delighted that I tried their gulab jamun cheesecake. Nothing like I've ever eaten before. Very unique take on 2 different desserts.

All in all a great meal. Though I do have a few suggestions (1) may be reduce the courses or offer 2 set meals, 4 course and 6 course (2) 6 wines of 100ml may be one too many for week-days, so probably reduce the offering to 75 ml from 100mn currently (3) may be add Indian masala chai (or his take) to wrap up the meal or a lassi/buttermilk as one of the courses.

The meal was adequately priced for all the offerings, but I did find the wine pairing and the Indian wines a tad too pricy.

5 stars to Sagar for accommodating to all our requests and enthralling us through the evening.

It was a fun evening with friends at the new Saha in Singapore. I have never seen Indian food in this avatar. The highlights were delicious food with stunning presentation, warm & welcoming ambiance and of course Chef Abhijit Saha's presence. Cant wait to be back to try the Indian Tasting Menus.
