This Indian vegetarian buffet restaurant supports the cultural organisation, Temple of Fine Arts, with its proceeds. The staff is largely voluntary and you can pay as much as you want for your meal. There are many varieties of dosai, oothappam (rice and lentil pancakes) and curry to try.
I have heard of this place for a long while, but never have a chance to go there until yesterday. Along with my girlfriend, I went down to the Chinatown Point branch. Luckily, I have made a reservation in advance as the restaurant was fully book on the Sunday evening and those who have not made reservations have to be turn away. Buffet spread variety was justified and there was a staff stationed there to explain and recommend the different Indian dishes with patience. The ambience was good even though the restaurant was full. The taste is good as any other Indian fine dining restaurant. Service nonetheless good. I guess, most of all, attracted most diners to the place was its concept of pay-whatever-you-feel-justified. Later, I learnt from the staff that the money earned from the restautant is for charity purposes including providing free tuitions for needy Indian students. Eventually, I left the place with a happy mood after making a payment (or rather donation, I feel) of $10/pax.
One of my best discovery in Singapore! I assume the last 3 reviews are a result of a bad day within the staff as we just came back from a fabulous lunch. Everything was perfect: very nice lady welcoming us, sweet teenage girls inquiring if everything was ok, if we wanted drinks or infos about our meals, ladies refilling the buffet and global friendly, happy atmosphere. The food is amazing and the dishes are abundant, fresh and delicious! Lots of curries, dhals, chutneys and soups. I am a massive fan of vegetarian indian food and this place got it all. BOOK IN ADVANCE and enjoy!
I get the whole idea of having to pay how much ever u want and eat until you are satisfied but what is with the staff treating you like nothing ! When you pay them, they always seem to give you the look that says 'that's it ?' Not very nice you know ! They are not at all friendly and they have frowns on their faces the whole time . One man at the reception spoilt out mood the second we entered .
