The place has classic look which makes us feel comfortable. The presentation of the food served was nice. The cuisine was authentic and tasted great. I'm not a big fan of Indian food but everything was delicious and now i am planning again to visit soon!

Worst north Indian food I have ever tasted...Tandoori rotis were burnt. Cant believe North Indian food can be sweet. Korma was like they have served just cream and forgot to cook it. I ordered $60 order and cant enjoy it for even $5. Please dont sell north Indian food if you dont know how to cook it.

Health Conscious and North Indian Food just doesn't go together !!!

Had a $100 ++ meal a few days ago. Few words come to mind - Sub-standard, and unauthentic ! I am from North India so trust me ! 

Off late, they are trying some wierd 'health conscious' fluff ! In pursuiing such an endeavour, they have messed up the taste of the dishes. How can Butter chicken be healthy ? Where is the loads of butter ? How can Daal Makhani not have white butter and ghee ? North Indian food has never been healthy and never will be. All the dishes ordered - kababs, butter chicken, daal, mutton samosa, pakoras, tandoori chicken - etc have lost their salt, their spice, their butteriness. In short, the food is finished here ! 

Absolutely no point wasting your money here ! Try Khansama ! They are truly the 'Best North Indian ' Restaurant here ! One meal there and you will doze off right after ! The ghee will flow your veins and you will literally feel high ! Such a feeling is lacking from Omar ! One meal at Khansama and you will definitely taste the spice, the salt, he freshness, the true Punjabi experience, not some Pseudo-Singapore-Indian- North c*** like Omar ! 

I am Punjabi from Rajasthan ! Trust me on this !

Cheers.

Omar Shariff has the right combination of good North Indian dishes in a quiet restaurant and attentive service. We enjoyed the tandoori roti, Roghan josh mutton and malai tikka cooked to perfection. Prices are reasonable with a 10% discount on an AMEX credit card. We liked it that the place is not crowded and noisy. One does not smell of the food when leaving the place either. We have always been back.

Had a buffet lunch here for a friends birthday party. The butter chicken, sheek kakab, briyani everything tasted the way they should be. No complains. Though i wouldn't be visiting the place for just having the food unless i am visiting Bukit Timah.

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
