Value for money. Something diff for those who wants to try indian food . Some "must try" dishes (cannot remember the name ). Can ask waiter to recommend .For 3 persons, cost av. $50 , but get to eat quite a lot of stuff
This restaurant destroys my association of "Good Indian food = Little India", they have maintained a strong Moghul style food with minimum diution from the South Indian style of spices !
Food: We ate a huge amount of Puri so much so that I could not eat much of the main dishes. Memorable dishes were the Chicken Tikka, Shashliks (meat on skewers), Palak Paneer, Butter chicken, prawn curry. My only regret is that I could not eat too much of it.
Value: Higher priced than most stalls in Little India but worth the money spent because of the large servings and the quality of the food.
Ambience: Basic, some improvements needed.
Service: Top quality.
The slogan that the restaurant uses in the publicity is "Fast Food", but the quality of the food is no synonymous with fast food, it is very good Indian Food. The words fast food means OK food served fast, whereas the food here is very tasty and served stylishly !
Food: We started off with a many Puris - these are hollowed out rice cakes which are then filled with the myriad of sauces and purees that add to the flavour. Pani Puri, Dahi Batata Puri. After eating our fill, we were served Tikka, this style of Tikka takes me back to Karachi, years ago when I had it at the Intercontinental Hotel in Karachi, succulent, tender, tasty, well BBQed. The Golden Prawn curry was excellent too.
My two reference points for quality Indian food are: Butter Chicken and Palak Paneer. The restaurant passes the test easily with these two dishes. Hard to find better ones in Singapore. Paneer with the correct consistency and taste are hard to come by in Singapore.
The Mutton Bryani was excllent, tender pieces of lamb with fragrant spices.
Dessert was Gulab Jamun - super sweet, and their Kulfi - must save space in your tummy for these, do share as they are large portions !
Value: The prices are not fast food prices (e.g. in many Indian restaurant in Little India) and they are restaurant prices but the quality of the food gives you good vaue at these prices.
Ambience: It is set up as a fast food restaurant, could do with an improvement to match the quality of the food and prices !
