Delhi Restaurant (Serangoon Road)

AsianIndianNorth Indian
A popular north Indian restaurant with a loyal following, this is a casual place to try something piping hot from the tandoor, or standard fare like butter chicken, prawn masala and palak paneer. The chef also makes a distinctive romali roti ("handkerchief bread"), which is baked on an overturned wok.

Yummy tummy

We had some guests & took them to Delhi restaurant for a change. For drinks, we ordered lassis - sweet, salty & mango. Unfortunately, these tasted more like watered down yoghurt than the thick yoghurt shakes which we are usually accustomed to. Also the ambience is not the greatest. However, that was our only disappointment.

The food was superfantabulously delicious and with great service, it made our night. The naan had the right amount of crispyness & garlic taste. Many Indian restaurants in Singapore or elsewhere do not serve rumali roti so you can imagine my delight in discovering this staple here. The rumali (roomali) roti was out of this world & I recommend this to everyone. The basmati rice came out fluffy & all the dishes were hot (temperature) just the way we like it.

The dishes we ordered include tandoori chicken, rogan josh (mutton), chicken mughalai, paneer butter masala, malai kofta, fried bhindi (ladyfinger), aloo gobi (potato & cauliflower in curry), fried dhal and dum aloo. We had requested that the chef put in less salt, chilli & oil and all the dishes come out perfect. Kudos to the chef, servers & hosts.

The dessert we had was gulab jamun, plus masala chai & coffee. Again the gulab jamun was hot and soaked nicely in the syrup, the masala chai was great (I pinched a sip from hubby) and the coffee strong enough to give me an oomp.

Good service, great food. Will definitely go again

I love this place!

It was one of the first restaurants I tried when arrived in Singapore last year. Since then I have come back many times. The food is amazing and the owner is very friendly. He is always very happy to see us!

I brought my father there when he visited me to try Indian food for the first time and he also liked it very much.

I am not specialist in Indian food but I know when food tastes good and when the service makes the difference. Delhi is a place where I really like to go in Singapore.

The Best Indian Food

I've been around 8 times and it's always good and I'm always taking people to try this place.

The onwer (Muthu) it's the best to make you feel confortable and he is very very nice.

Don't expect a fancy place but do expect amazing food.

Prefer the Racecourse Branch

See my review on the other branch.

This branch is slightly more expensive, and the food just isn't quite the same.
