Great food at reasonable prices. But the secret is out so you will have to deal with the queues. The staff are polite. This restaurant gives you the impression that it is a family run business. The chicken fried with opinions and curry leaf is to die for. Go early, it's sold out fast. After 5.30, Varde will be freshly... More

The taste is equivalent to home cooked south Indian food. Usually crowded after 12:30 pm. Serve lunch till 4pm. Pricing is very economical, as I wonder how they can afford with free flow of rice, vegetables and pickles. Hope they expand their business to other parts of Singapore.

Gandhi Restaurant, from the exterior may look old and run down but do not be deceived. Their food is authentic Southern Indian banana leaf food, tasty, and value for money. The other banana leaf restaurants in the vicinity are pale in comparison with Gandhi's. If you are going there for lunch, you will be greeted by a long queue. These... More

The food eaten here feels like homecooked food. Everything is so tasty. I would recommend coming here early if you are planning to have lunch as it tends to get crowded during lunch hour. I would have lunch here more often if it wasnt so crowded all the time. Must try the food here if you are in the area!

Enjoyed the delicious Indian food served in banana leaf. The place is often crowded during lunch and dinner time. And love the chicken masala and the fish balls.

Jostle with the crowd for the real banana leaf experience. From locals to foreigners, from budget diners to tourists. In the beginning (years ago), there were mostly Indians. Blue-collar Indians and adventurous Singaporeans in need of authenticity. Then, the tourists arrive. Nowadays, you can see a mish mash of locals, tourists and Indians all dining happily, elbow-to-elbow, banana-leaf-to-banana-leaf. Basic meal... More

Ghandi is an institution. Traditional banana leave rice complete with all the fixings. The waiters come around with containers bearing rice, vegetables, pickles, papadum and curries of your choice. All of these are free flow and can be refilled at any time. Delicious. Now come the adds; mutton, mutton ribs, mutton tripe, fried fish, chicken, quails' eggs, all heavenly prepared.... More

A banana leaf meal is a must when visiting Gandhi. Amazingly tasty curries. They have a set selection of vegies that they provide free with the banana leaf meal. It is air conditioned so very comfortable. Always packed so you might have to share a table with others, but worth it!

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
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, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
