Wandered around aimlessly in Capital Square, it was an unplanned visit to this restaurant who specializes in Indian and Pakistani cuisines.
Kadai Paneer Set w/ butter naan & briyani rice – The briyani rice was fragrant,while the kadai gravy very much similar to matar gravy, it was creamy with a good balance of sweet, sour and spicy, with chewy paneer cubes, it goes very well with either naan or rice. The naan itself was well-baked, tender, chewy with slight crisp, it was good with or without butter.

Followed HungryGoWhere to this restaurant. Small place with outdoor seating. Quick Service. One person was cooking, serving, cashier etc. Good food and real cheap. Good for late night if you are in that area

While stumbling around the Far East Square area for lunch, I noticed a sign advertising some Indian food packs for around ten dollars. For proper Indian food in Singapore (not just the briyani in a food court) you can expect ten dollar meals to be very mediocre.... This was not the case in a very good way!
Tried the chicken makhani meal which came with white rice, the daily veg, and a piece of naan for 11$. The portions were very good and all the food was delicious, simple as that. There were not even any inedible bits of spices either, everything was perfectly blended in allowing me finish everything down to the final grain of rice.

Featured on 8Days, Wine&Dine, and Exquisite, the decor is canteen-style, so this is really a eat-and-go place but there are several selling points:
1. Guilt-free healthy Indian food! less salt, less oil, less cream, no MSG.
2. “We don’t own a freezer,” says the owner; food is freshly prepared daily.
3. Chefs are from India, so there is a degree of authenticity.
4. The owner’s ancestry is from Gujarat, and it was the first shop in Singapore to sellGujarati dal dhokli, only available on Wednesdays 12-3pm.
5. Owner’s extended family lives in India so they buy fresh spices, pound and mix them themselves and ship it over to Singapore freshly.
A friend and I shared the angmoh-influenced lamb kebab wrap ($11) with plenty of fresh vegetables, a naan as wrap, and two sauces, a spicy one and a yogurt-based one. This is good lunch food, as I remember fondly of my New York Ah Beng Training Days when I ate wrap for lunch. There wasn’t a stench of the lamb. The texture of hot lamb and crunchy vegetables fit well together. The spiciness of the lamb was padded by the vegetables and the spice left a tingling sensation on my lips. Hot lips! Good to kiss any time!
Meat Platter ($20). The food came sizzling on the hotplate and the aroma was mouthwatering. Taste-wise, it was average for us–we thought the spices could be heavier–but the meat was tender and succulent.
My friend and I also had Chicken Masala set ($9.50) and Chicken Makhani(butter chicken, $9.50), which come with a naan each and are popular for lunch. The Makhani is definitely the better of the two. The masala was salty for us but the Makhani chicken has a deep roasted, very smokey taste that I like very much and can’t stop eating. The chicken really absorbed the essence of the tandoor (clay oven). I’d come back for this.
I don’t like lime juice ($2.80), because it’s either too sour or diabete-ly sweet, but here, the balance was superb. This is the only lime juice I can recall that I like but I wonder if it can be cheaper. $2, maybe?
In general, although I love spicy-hot food, I can’t take it but the food here is ok to my palate. Unlike my other experiences of eating Indian food, after eating, we didn’t feel heavy and lethargic. It tasted decent too. The price seems reasonable as the eatery is in CBD area. An eatery that survives 8 years in such a competitive area can’t be bad.
