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.
Came for the classic banana leaf Indian dinner with friends. We ordered a range of dishes including Murg Tikka Masala, Chicken Kadhai, Chilli Chicken, Fish in Banana Leaf, Saag Ghost, Yellow Dhal, and some plain/garlic Naan. Overall we were happy with the quality of the food and service and think value is reasonable at around $20 p.p which includes a jug of beer. Some of the dishes like the signature fish head curry do seem expensive, and when I tried it before at the Racecourse Rd outlet I was not that impressed. Anyway I still consider this a good place to come, especially if we have visitors staying over and want to show them Little India. There is 10% if you have Amex or UOB.
I went to Banana Leaf Apolo in Little India on 9/5/15 alone during lunch time. I sat there and waited to be served, but everyone seems to be busy and no one attend to me even though some of them past by me. Then I raised my hand at two staffs, they showed hand sign to wait, the third staff I raised my hand came and took my order. Later when my veg set meal was served, there was an empty bowl in the tray which was meant for payasam. Before I could ask the waiter for the payasam, he disappeared. So I went to the counter and got the payasam and spoon by myself. After I finished, my waiter who took my order didn't came to gave me the bill so I've to find out the table number myself and pay my bill at the counter. Maybe, if we go there as single they don't entertain you. All their staffs need to be sent for customer service training as they don't knows what's the meaning of good customer service.
Made reservations for 8pm for a table for eight persons. Was there at 7.50pm and was waiting for my elderly parents and family. At 8pm, this bespectacled paunchy manager Rajendran told me that I had to give up my table as there was a queue outside waiting for seats. Despite me telling him that I had a reservation for 8pm,it was only 8pm then and my parents were walking towards the restaurant, this pathetic excuse of a manager kept insisting that there was a queue outside and he needed the seats. What is the point of making a reservation, only to be asked to give up the table when we were not even late? My entire family was seated by 8.03pm!! This experience really leaves me with a bitter and nasty taste! Atrocious service standard.
