Affordable North Indian Buffet Lunch

Yantra at Tanglin Mall exudes a ‘fine dining meets date night’ vibe; the décor spells muted elegance and the a la carte prices are high. So the affordable buffet lunch is a pleasant (and welcome) surprise. Expect an array of North Indian style curries, kebabs (yoghurt-marinated and grilled meat and vegetables) and tandoori items. Mind you, there is more here than just a dal makhani (curried lentils) and chicken curry. We liked the Ab-e-Hayat, a vegetable soup cooked in coconut water and tandoori chaat (a melange of veggies and fresh fruit such as apples, guava, bell peppers and tomatoes marinated and roasted). Our favourite however was their aromatic dum biryani - think biryani, but steam cooked in an earthen pot.

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.

Yum!

My first visit to Yantra was to the lunchtime buffet. The food was delicious and of outstanding quality.  It was the best Indian food I have tasted in Singapore.  The paneer masala had huge pieces of the softest paneer I have ever eaten.  There was a good selection of dishes, and plenty of options for people like myself who don't eat meat.  I also enjoyed the banana custard for dessert. The cost of the buffet was very reasonable too.  Definitely recommended!

Amazing value lunch and superb food at dinner

Finding good Indian food in Singapore can be surprisingly difficult. It seems like one place might have a good biryani but then that's about it. Other places do good Tandoori but fall flat on face when it comes to curries. And yet some places, the food is just too fattening and oily and you feel like a bloated Sultan as you hobble out the exit.

(read full review and pics at http://www.citynomads.com/reviews/restaurants/509/yantra-defining-indian-cuisine-in-singapore)   Yantra is perhaps the most all-encompassing Indian restaurant I have dined at in recent history, and having just come back from an epic buffet lunch there (and an outstandingly reasonable $19.90++) I feel the need to share with you why you should check it out.   Located at B1 of the Tanglin mall, the location is somewhat hidden, however once inside you find a quite enormous dining establishment with some 100+ seats. There's even a sizeable bar and al fresco area as well. It's quite an impressive space.   As for the food, this is where Yantra really shines...   Starting with the chicken biryani ($35)! Fluffy rice, succulent chicken and a beautifully subtle spicy taste overall. During the lunch buffet, this is served in a giant bowl which is semi-covered with an edible roti-pancake type seal. Make sure put some of it on to your plate as well as it soaks up the other curries perfectly.
