This is a fine dependable Indian restaurant. The lunchtime buffet is really excellent value. Chicken tikka (dry version) is very good. Every meal I have had here is very flavorful. Dishes with sauces are overly heavy with cream. I like that the meat with each dish (lamb or chicken) is good quality. One odd thing about the below-ground level eating... More

Punjabi Indian food done right! Fresh, seasoned without fear and served with attention. One of the best restaurants for Indian cuisine. Paneer Saag, Chicken Tikka Masala, seekh kabab, appettizers. All great. Dessert kheer was tasty but consistency was too liquid with full rice grains. Would definitely visit again!

We are serious fans of Indian food. We eat it at least once a week, and when we travel, we go out of our way to find local Indian restaurants. We asked the front desk at the hotel for a recommendation, and he didn't hesitate. This is a small, family run restaurant (the best kind) and very clean and charming.... More

We were advised that the greater Boston area does not do Indian cuisine justice. We were pleasantly surprised by the tasty dishes we were served. I will definitely recommend and return.

I was very impressed with the lunch buffet. There was a good selection of interesting chicken dishes as well as fish, several vegetation dishes, salads and fruit. At around $10 it's excellent value for money. Took a look at the dinner menu which was very extensive, but more pricey.

The food at Singh's is well prepared and nicely served. Four of us shared a marvelous garlic naan, lamb biryani which was rich, generously scattered with chunks of lamb, nicely spiced. The chicken korma was creamy with the tomato flavor coming through clearly but not overwhelmingly. The eggplant dish was a bit more spicy (we ordered medium) which gave it... More

Reliable and Tasty Indian food, freshly made and with good service make this a family and friends favorite. In a sub-level, with an outside garden, the ambience is casual and comfortable.

I've been coming to Singhs Cafe for about two years now and have always preferred to have dinner over the lunch buffet. Dinner is just a little quieter and you can order from the menu. The curries are excellent but my friend and I noticed a bit of a change the last time we visited. The green mint sauce they... More

We've lived nearby for years and never tried Singh's before this weekend. We were very impressed by the excellent and plentiful food. Atmosphere was nice and the service good. Also a better value than the Indian restaurant in nearby Needham.

Singh's Cafe is located in a brownstone basement on Mass Avenue in the town of Wellesley. The decor is well, Indian! Service is very courteous, albeit a tad slow (in al fairness they had a full house). We ordered vegetable pakora, CTM (or chicken tikka masala), lamb curry, and Saag paneer, all excellent. Kingfisher beer was a good fire extinguisher.... More
