Well, must say that the appoms are actually better ! They are freshly made and served immediately - that's how they are eaten by the way, with a little coconut milk and palm sugar. Vegetarian meals are great with a variety of dosas, vadais, biryani...More

Went with my extended family and enjoyed the south India food. Very simple and basic but nice food. For 10 of us, i paid 90sgd. Which is quite decent. Very tasty food.

Fresh crisp Appams made on the spot for breakfast. Authentic, wholesome and simple breakfast. And cheap. It evokes the quiet vegetarian ethos of a classical Madras entrepreneur's desire to serve people by feeding people well. Good place to order food in Tamil and eavesdrop on...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

Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,
