Best in Singapore

The lunch buffet is absolutely fantastic. If you were to recommend good indian food to your co-workers - this is the best place. Ofcourse cheaper buffets exist islandwide, but when it comes to quality - almost none provide this level of standard for the price. 

Typical Indian connossieurs may disagree - especially those from India who have had top-of-the-line stuff from hotels such as ITC's Dum Pukht. Before personally indulging in such fine dine places, I completely could not understand where bad reviews stem from. Given the area, the kind of customers this restaurant sees, my guess is they are certainly not the kind you will find among Sunday Mustafa crowds. Rich Indians with pampered palates have to be more demanding.

In my opinion, unless you have the budget to get to a top hotel - the food here is really the best quality per $ for Indian food. It beats Holiday Inn, Khansamas, Taste of India and most other places where quality isn't as top notch.

What's really impressive is that despite the seemingly low variety the dishes are really meant to be enjoyed and to savour every drop and bite. New variants and varieties that you don't see in typical restaurants appear quite frequently, making this place good for 2nd and 3rd visits. The restaurant waiters are really friendly and don't carry an aura of "welcome to an atas spot" facade that has become common in Muthu's Curry or Gayatri restaurants. 

Overall, there is no other place I'd recommend to my friends who'd say "hey bring me to an Indian place". Serangoon Road is half filled with foreigner robbing restaurants. My safest and classiest bet is Yantra.
Also, checkout the awards displayed inside and you'll know why.

Best Indian in sg but pricey

i have visited several times. I love it. Most flavorful Indian food in the city. They have taken street chatats and kathi rolls and elevated them to a gastronomical art form.  the chicken bharta is the most incredible Indian dish I've ever had in my life.  The lunch buffet is a good value, but for dinner it isn't cheap.  Nonetheless its incredibly good and I look forward to many more visits in the future.

Average food with poor service

No doubt its an expansive restaurant. But, if food and service is good i don't mind spending. My review is based on two visits to yantra.
First time i had buffet on Saturday. Some dishes are good(like, grilled prawns, biryani) and some of them are just average.
Second time, me and my husband went for a special menu. Its was by some chef from mumbai. Chaats, chana bhatura, stuffed prathans and all. It was expensive.
We ordered 'paneer paratha', 'dahi vada' and 'mumbai ragda'.
Pratha came.. And was really good but with VERY tiny portion of dal and raita (just about 2 spoons).
Dahi wada came, again very small portion. But, was good.
Then we waited and waited for mumbai ragda and it did not came. We asked them twice but, nothing came on our table.
After 20 mins one of the waiter came and asked if we have ordered for bhatura chana (which we did not ordered). Again, we asked him to get us mumbai ragda(what we actually ordered). Waited for more 15 mins. By the time we were fed up waiting and asked them to cancel rest of the order.
