Little India

  • The French Stall
    4 stars

    Budget French

    544 Serangoon Rd
    T: 6299 3544

    The location leaves much to be desired, but to get a multi-course French dinner for $25 a person we won't complain. The menu is small and changes with what the chef finds fresh at the market, but you can expect French onion soup, escargots swimming in butter, grilled beef, duck breast and ... read more

  • Tekka Centre
    4 stars

    Follow your nose

    665 Buffalo Rd

    Follow your nose to this multi-purpose market building in Little India. While the upper floors sell everything from saris to CDs, the ground level is largely a hawker centre with stalls turning out curries, briyani rice, roti murtabak (flatbread stuffed with minced meat and onion), dosai (lentil ... read more

  • Komala Vilas
    4 stars

    This is the original

    76-78 Serangoon Rd
    T: 6293 6980

    Get acquainted with idli, vadai, dosai, poori, bhattura and other South Indian snacks at this long-running restaurant in the heart of Little India. Komalas Vilas is perpetually busy and turns out the food so quickly and cheaply it feels like a vegetarian version of McDonalds. For something more ... read more

  • Khansama Tandoori
    4 stars

    North Indian for all kinds of diners

    166 Serangoon Rd
    T: 6299 0300

    If you can forgive their touts who annoy pedestrians on Serangoon Road, Khansama really is a great spot for North Indian food. Chicken, fish, and mutton kebabs emerge from the clay oven perfectly juicy and, paired with some fluffy naan and chutney, are a mouthful of bliss. Vegetarians don't have ... read more

  • Premaas Cuisine
    4 stars

    Kerala classics

    6 Dalhousie Lane
    T: 9237 5739

    If you're starting to think all South Indian food is vegetarian, try this hidden gem specialising in the seafood of Kerala state. With the liberal use of fresh coconut, dishes like prawn curry, masala crab and banana leaf fish are almost as sweet as they are spicy. For land-lovers there's the ... read more

  • The Banana Leaf Apolo
    4 stars

    Go on, dig in

    54 Race Course Rd
    T: 6293 8682

    Forego any formalities and even the cutlery for one of the most satisfying Indian meals in Singapore — banana leaf curry. A swatch of banana leaf serves as your plate and rice, dahl and veggies are heaped on top and constantly refilled. Meat dishes are ordered separately and come in portions big ... read more

  • Kashmir
    4 stars

    A million ways with mutton

    52 Race Course Rd
    T: 6293 6003

    The real Kashmir may be off-limits to most travellers, but you can experience the region's distinctive cuisine at this midrange restaurant in Little India. There's a selection of vegetarian, chicken and fish dishes, but mutton is the star and gets a dozen unique preparations like being slowly ... read more

  • Allaudin's Briyani
    3.5 stars

    For the perfect briyani

    #01-232 Tekka Centre, 665 Buffalo Rd

    So this isn't exactly a restaurant — just a stall in Tekka Centre serving one dish — but it warrants a listing all its own. The recipe for Allaudin's famous briyani has been in the family over 40 years and the saffron, turmeric and cumin that give the rice its flavour and colour are perfectly ... read more

  • Suriya Restaurant
    3.5 stars

    A tasty bargain

    140 Serangoon Rd
    T: 6296 3070

    You can trust this vegetarian restaurant opposite the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple for tasty Indian food at prices even religious pilgrims can afford. Curries and rice dishes are precooked so just take a look (or a sniff) at what's available. For a freshly prepared snack order some roti prata ... read more
