From the 80s to the early 90s, the more discerning in Singapore would invariably congregate in Jalan Kayu, considered by many to be the mecca of prata-lovers. Today, Casuarina Road (off Upper Thomson Road) is just as famous, and possibly even more popular, partly due to popular prata joints like Casuarina Curry Restaurant, which was started there in 1992. Casuarina Curry Restaurant is a halal certified 2nd Generation Indian curry and prata restaurant with roots in Jalan Kayu.
-the prata here is bigger than usual and cost the same!
-noodle dishes are all good
-rice dishes are not bad
-ambience.. i like.
-quite peaceful, hardly any big groups will eat here
-service is good but they tend to chat among themselves too much till they leave the dish at the serving area
-overall good, recommended, if you can find a good parking lot
Their food is very average to lower end, which I wouldn't recommend anyone to dine. The older cashier is very rude. Likes to mumble, and when you ask him to repeat, he will curse at you in Tamil, thinking you don't understand Tamil. So what if he's the management? Rude rude... plus I ordered Roti John, the meat was badly charred, it's dark and very bitter, worst, it smells horrible like burnt hair!!! I threw the roti away.
Other food was below average, those really tasted real briyani and prata, etc from Persia, India, etc will tell you this one's lacklustre.
From that ROTI incident and constant rudeness, I won't go back there again.
I used to frequent this place years back. We liked the place and simple ambience with good hot pratas. However, guess the food in our Singapore is heading to the worse, and casuarina prata is not spared either. I know for the fact that service here can be really slow and unattentive. Well, that was one reason why we stopped visiting the place. Recently, we decided to go back give it a shot. What can I say, it was worse than before. Tables left uncleaned though it wasn't at a busy time. And staffs were all, I don't know, hiding inside and just standing, chit chatting away. So I decided to approach one of them, well, they insisted on me going back to my table and wait for them. I don't get that at all. Worse, they didn't even glance where I would be sitting. Ten minutes fly by and nothing, I decided to approach another staff, same reply. I was at my wit's end. So I went to buy drinks from neighbor HK zhi cha. And couldn't be bothered anymore. When the prata arrived. They looked and tasted exactly like heat up ones. They were kinda warm outside and cold inside, with the edge of my egg prata was totally cold and tasted so bland. Prata looked stale..too bad, the curry that day was quite good (though it was not hot). Seems to me that their standard had dropped drastically. Not going to talk about their service cos it was too bad an experience plus the way they replied us was like 0 service mind. Prata taste wise, there are aplenty out there with better texture. Which reminded me how funny it was that they won best prata (not sure which year). We would probably go back only if we were to be in the area and have sudden crave for prata, plus go with empty mind. Otherwise, i would rather drive further to sembawang road for the springleaf prata which is way better.
