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

This is the first time eating at this restaurant and the overall experience was okay! The service was very slow! We ordered several dishes and it took a long time to receive them! The assistant manger took our order and he never check on us!...More

I ordered their signature chicken briyani but when it was served, the chicken looks pretty messed up. However, I do give them brownie points for having quite good service.

Some vegetarian and of course Chicken Tikka Masala. Great tasting sauces. Quite busy at lunch time, but waiting time was not a problem.

The best chicken tikka I have ever tasted! Delicious food. Nice authentic atmosphere and friendly staff.

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,
