Anjappar is never as crowded as its neighbouring establishments the food is equally good. I had the regular South Indian Thali with a side of chicken 65. The thali comes with two vegetables, three gravies, yougurt and pappadum. The chicken 65 was nothing to write home about but the rest was very good.

Nice decor and warm atmosphere was what attracted us to this South Indian Chedttinadu restaurant. Food was pretty good all round and spicy just wasn't spicy enough for us locals. The thava fish fry was ordinary. The garlic and Kucha naans were great. The boneless mutton tika nice and full of basil and curry leaves. Mango lassi was overly strong... More

Not sure if this is genuine Chenttinaad food but either way it really wasn't good. The 'mutton' masala was inedible. That was one big fat 'goat' with very little meat around its fat! Also, this was one of those curries that has loads of 'bits' in it. You have to pick your way to the very minimal meaty bits. The... More

Went in the afternoon with a few friends, most of the item in the menu wasn't available. The mutton briyani was so-so. For the price paid, I would recommend Sakuntala just down the road.

The main problem when most visit these restaurants is an expectation mismatch. Every one is keen that the taste matches the original Indian restaurant. This is an unfair expectation as there are various factors that impact the taste. Local ingredients, matching the taste to suit local palates etc. Anyways, I found it to be the next best if you are... More

There is nothing to find fault with Anjappar food. But definitely the taste you get here and Chennai is very different. At any time, the Anjappar in Chennai outclass the ones here. Generally the food is about good to average. But portions can be smaller than what you pay for and the overall bill shocked me on both the occassions... More

Many restaurants claim that they serve authentic chettinad cuisine but serve dishes that didn't originate from the chettinad cuisine. I'm glad that Anjappar decided to include a few authentic dishes in their menu to justify their name. The dishes include kozhi rasam ( chicken clear soup), nandu rasam ( crab soup) and uppu Kari. The rest of the dishes in... More

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
