Specialising in fish head curry and other North and South Indian fare, this pleasant restaurant has been a landmark in Little India for over 30 years. Other than the fish head curry, try the chicken masala, mutton curry and tandoori chicken. Function rooms are also available.

Daily: 10:30 - 22:30

Good for groups

Went here in a group of 7, and we all had a good time. The Masala chicken was a tad too spicy for my taste, and we had to chase a few times for drinks, but service was friendly. I definitely recommend going in a large group, as you can try a wider variety of items. The tables are long though, so conversation can be difficult.

My wife and I went to this place for dinner todat. As soon as we sat at the table and held the menu card, a waiter came to take our order. When asked to give us 5 mins to decide, he gave a weird look and said a rude OK. We ordered chicken tikka and Mughlai Biryani. They took 40 mins to serve. When the food did arrive, the tikka was cold and tasted stale. The biryani was a big joke. Some masala rice with bland and unmarinated pieces of dry chicken!  We being Indian know the authentic taste of these things and were wondering how this restaurant must be fooling the poor non Indian souls who will innocently accept what is served to them. What pissed me off the most is the attitude of the staff. Ironically, they are most rude with Indian customers! This is my 3rd  such experience at this restaurant. I will never ever eat at this bloody restaurant again. Period. Aah...my stomach is aching due to those stale tikkas!!

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
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

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
