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.

Ordered the Burrah ChopSucculent lamb chops - S$56 for 4 pieces - think rubber wound be more tender than these chops .. think they took frozen meat and burnt it in oven.
the butter chicken was sweet and the meat was not fresh.

complained to the waiter he just turned his back and walked away arrogantly.

and the BTW the washroom - think the public toilets are more cleaner. atleast they dont overflow all over the place.

took my Korean friend there to taste authentic Indian food .. his comment sums up the entire experience  - "not having Indian food again for long long time"

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.
