After a long break, I was invited for another HGW food tasting. I passed Vansh several time when I am in the Singapore Indoor Stadium area but it looked expensive + I didn't know it is part of the famous Rang Mahal group.

Service is attentive and friendly. I started with a mango lassi which has a good balance of sweet and sour.
The 4 appetizer items that cosist of:
Dahi Papdi Chaat (flour disc with yoghurt & tamarind chutney)
- like thin wafers with a yoghurt spread on top, light tasting and interesting pairing of wafer and yoghurt
Onion Bhajia (fried onion fritters)
- not oily, more flour then the western breaded onion rings type, goes well with mint dip
Garam Chicken Tikka Chaat (tandori chicken)
- really tender chicken pieces, probably due to the yoghurt marinade, full of flavor
Malmali Seekh (tandoori lamb)
- rather strong lamb taste even with the spices, which i don't mind but it may bother others
The main course consist of Sea Bass Fish masala served in a bento style with Lentils, Basmati rice, Chickpeas & Naan. By this time I am quite full from the 4 appetizers but everything's so good that I couldn't stop.
I usually enjoy my Indian meals at more casual/budget eateries so I can really taste the difference in quality here, especially for "basic" items like lentils & chickpeas.
They have a kebab and beer sunday brunch at $32++ which is quite popular with the Tanjong Rhu community (just across the bridge).
The meal rounded off with a creamy lychee kulfi.
