Anjappar Authentic Chenttinaad Restaurant (Singapore)

Rachel and I popped by Mustafa Centre a few weeks back to help her dad exchange some foreign currencies. It was then that we realised the stretch of shops along Syed Alwi Road, directly facing Mustafa, touting cheap CDs and other souvenirs have all been replaced by a whole row of spanking new air-conditioned restaurants serving various Indian cuisines.

This is probably a sign of the growing rich and affluence expat Indian families moving into Singapore as the Little India locale shift in their shop mix to cater to the needs of these new immigrants.

I am a fan of Indian cuisines, drawn to the aroma of funky spices, used generously. Hence we decided to try out a few of the restaurants in the stretch, one at the time.

For a starter, we chose Anjappar as it is the only one which has an international franchise in other countries like Canada, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. It has two outlets in Singapore, the other one is located at Racecourse Road.

Please see the video review. http://youtu.be/xBhM5ifbOiA I do not recommend this place. They should improve in everything. One of the worst customer service.

We brought our guests there recently as we previously quite like the food at anjappar opposite mustafa. We thought they should be the same. We were 'forced' to order a lot of food, we did raise our concern but the service staff just angrily left the table. To avoid further delay (CNY dinner crowd), we called him back to order. We found out that we were right that it was too much for us. If the food is delicious , we wouldn't mind that, but all our guests all politely said they had taken something much better than that. Worse was the price. Simply not worth it...

Disappointed with the Race Course Outlet

We are regular patrons at the Syed Alwi Rd outlet, and we never had any complaints, till one fateful day when we walked into the Race Course Rd branch. For starters whatever we tried ordering was "Sold Out" then finally when we managed to get "some" food it was of very bad quality. But what took the cake was a simple drink of sweet n salted lime soda. when it was served to us it was just thick sugar syrup which was undrinkable. We called the head waiter to inform n he said he will get it changed, 5 mins later we got the same drink again. We called him once again and told him its the same, too sweet and not drinkable he then called the waiter and told him "throw this in the dustbin". Apparently we were to get a new set of drink; but guess what? We still got the drink in the very same form, we called him and told him, it's still very bad but don't have to change it. That was the first and last time to the Race Course Road branch of Anjappar. I fail to understand why would they jeopardize their brand when they don't have the capacity to run a second branch as good as the first one!!!

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
