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.
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 .
I have been to this restaurant couple of times. Interior is good, but nobody is there to look at you..you have to stand up in queue, wait until your turn and when your turn comes you find that your plate was so small for taking all those items presented there. Other than this I did not like taste of food there. Konala Vilas restaurant in Little India is far better than this.. the only thing is they do not have proper infastructure. At the end while going out of there is counter where you have to pay money whatever you wish to pay..they say they do not have rate cards..But then when we pay they ask anount and no. of people..why so? Instead of this you could have kept proper rate card as like others do..Tke proper money and give proper food..that's all
ok we do not know about their food and we ask politely, can't they just answer with courtesy even if not really go out of the way helping us figure the food out with explanation? theres a man at the reception. we go and stand there waiting to be seated, he looks at us and keeps doing his work. then we enquire him if we can get a seat, he calls a lady who comes and asks us curtly without even a smile or looking at our face if we have a reservation. when I ask if we need to make it to come as a general question she retorts back that's how it works here. so rude for nothing! next when I asked about the food, what cuisine is it and if it is a buffet only, she's like tell me if you want to eat or not then you can ask me questions. being a vegetarian brahmin from south India let me tell the management that this is neither our community culture or Tamil culture to treat a guest and customer like this. if you are busy or tired or anything just let the customer know and get someone else who can help us. it is really disheartening to come to Singapore and see my own people treat me like this. Ruining my Sunday afternoon lunch expectations. and when I speak in Tamil, you answer me back in English though you speak to your staff in Tamil. why is that? may be you treat me better if I speak English? what a shame.
