We went to this place for the first time and loved the crispy dosa and the Indian dessert. Excellent place for good Indian meal. Reasonable price.

Seated after 25 minutes of wait, our first time at this restaurant was supposed to be a nice little lunch family get together.
At the table, the staff warned that the child is not supposed to fiddle with the tissue paper boxes on the table, we tried our best to restrain but the child would not listen. We assured the staff that if the child wastes any tissues we accept to pay for the same. If taken away, the child will cry. But, the boxes were snatched from the child to our dismay.
Have seen/heard staff treating customers badly but snatching things from a child is a first!
This is invasion of personal space of the child and is nothing short of an harassment. The staff did not have any rights to confront a child to say the least, despite we assuring that we will pay for the tissue papers if at all that was the concern! Is this the example we as an adult would set for the child? Absolutely NO. We decided to walk away from the restaurant, hungry, with the child crying.
MTR's reputation is what these staff's pride upon, but is it worth the insult? There are better (child tolerant) options elsewhere.
Wonder if other customers are also treated this way, if so, this place is a disgrace to MTR franchise and the warm and embracing South-Indian culture!!

Visited MTR Singapore after a long time in early March this year. It very clean and food was tidily plated. Kept visiting MTR during our stay and observed gradual decline in standards of hygiene and cleanliness. Finally, on the 18th of April, Rava Idly with side of "Saagu" was served with little bits of hair along with one long strand. Brought it to the waiter's attention, who quickly swept up the plate and took it away, before I could stop him to take a picture. He came back asking if he could serve anything else, but we were too nauseated to eat anything more there.

We have been eating at this place for 4 years now- at the least twice a month and sometimes more. In the last 6-8months we started ordering home delivery because the line up system outside the restaurant is just nothing less than CHAOS.
1. We realised that they have started to become dodgy with the portion sizes. It all depends on who decides to pack the meal and what mood they are in.Some days a sambar, for example will come in a small container, some days it will be medium or large- THE PEICE WILL NEVER CHANGE! Just the size! If your lucky, u get the large…
2. If you order 2 of the same items, again lets say sambar- they will just decide to combine the 2 serves into 1 container without asking if you actually want it that way.
I bought food for my work college and myself, we dont want to eat out of the same container so why are you stupidly assuming that you can combine it and then try to justify to me that the one large is equal to 2 smalls.
3. When I say justify, i truly mean it- if you call the restaurant back and are lucky to get one of the men- he will start giving you packet measurements in grams and your head off in order to avoid a refund.
4. If your even more unlucky and get the women- JUST HANG UP AND SAVE YOURSELF!
She is the rudest and most hopeless one of all.
She will talk back and talk over you, will not listen to anything and also decide to hangup on you midway through your sentence!!

Extremely disgusting and disappointing service!

Visited MTR for lunch on a working day today. Glad we reached there at 1230 for we got our desired table for two instantly. Minutes later we could see the ever growing line of loyal customers grow longer & longer. The secret clearly was the absolute “ authenticity” to South Indian cuisine maintained at very reasonable price. We had to have Masala Dosas for sure and opted for Vada Sambar and Filter coffee. Each item was mouth-wateringly authentic! Most definitely will return.
