This family restaurant has been in business since 1950, and at this Dempsey location since the 80’s. It is a bit of a cult, with loyal customers, many of whom first came here as kids. The clientèle is largely Asian, and mainly local at that....More

My wife and I had dinner at Samy's in early March 2019. What a great place! You are not far from downtown Singapore but it feels like being in the countryside. The food is served on a large banana leaf. We had chicken and fish...More

Samy's Curry - Dempsey. Had the fish head curry (Indian style) and was favourful and spicy. The service, however, needs improvement as they seem to be short-handed and were very slow to provide service.

I have been here several times. In the expensive Dempsey area, this is best value for money. The foods are authentic, and the service is... em... not very consistent, but ok.

This South Indian restaurant isn't fancy, but the food is delicious. Many places slip when they become popular, but not Samy's. You should come several times to try everything

The place has an old world vibe of the days gone by. A colonial building with tiled roof and ceiling fans. The flavours are uniquely Singaporean Indian with strong influence from Southern India. Another name for Samys could easily be Dakshin.

It seems like every time you ask them something, it takes three times before they get it right. Not sure if it is a language issue with understanding English. I think it’s an issue of passing the buck. But food is still good although they...More
