OK, I love Indian food, but I'm not the most knowledgeable about biryanis and lassis and the other names, so it was really good that the waiters were unhurried and so helpful. My wife doesn't like much spice, and the waiter helped her pick a...More

I say ritual because one cannot come to Singapore and not visit Apolo banana leaf restaurant located on Race Course Road. It is almost like a landmark of restaurants as all taxi drivers will know it right away. I will say atmosphere is like a...More

Dining experience from hell! Chomped onto a SCREW in the cauliflower dish we ordered which chipped the crown of my tooth. Management did not seem at all worried and thought they were doing me a favour by taking that dish off the bill! Dental bill...More

Firstly the self-ordering system wasn’t connected, the service staff took our order and we waited 15-20 minutes before they came back saying that our order didn’t go through and we had to re-order everything. Having eaten at many Indian restaurants, I have never had a...More

This is in the middle of the Indian tourist district, but so what? The food is authentic, the prices reasonable, the service efficient and helpful. Sometimes restaurants are popular because they are good. A group of four of us went there for lunch after a...More

When a restaurant is full you know it is good. This place is buzzing with activity but then so is India. Good Indian food served on a banana leaf. Large menu including many vegetarian options. Licensed. Child friendly. Crowded.

On arriving was ignored by the staff and we had to approach someone ourselves to get a table. Tandoori chicken was warm and tasteless. The rest of the food was bland. Small shards of bone in each mouthful of the mutton masala. I told waiter...More

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,
