The food is awesome, especially keerai medhu vadai & bajji, as and wen we order they are made so it is fresh and hot, but the only thing is they are oily... but anyways they taste very good.. the ambiance is good and the price is normal.Remember they accept only cash, no NETS or card.. we had a narrow escape...

I discovered this Indian Restaurant probably over twenty years ago when we lived in Singapore. It was at the same location serving simply the best Indian style food! Not alot has changed, except there now is a Madras in the name. I only awarded four stars because we didn't receive a detailed bill - only a total to be paid... More

This quaint, tucked away, old-school vegetarian restaurant is totally underrated. Their thali meal, appam, ghee dosai, pongal and vadai, and just every single thing is amazing! The food is inexpensive, and yet just plain fantastic! Authentic South Indian food that is reminiscent of the food in India :)

One of my foodie Friend recommended this place to us. Before visiting this place, we had limited choices for early morning South Indian breakfast. In the allies of Little India we found this very authentic chennai style South Indian snack place. The place is tucked in the middle of upper Dickson road. The Dosa idli and medhu vada were very...

Family is away and I was walking home after my yoga workshop. I was famished and wanted to stay vegetarian for the weekend. Had a thali for dinner and a rava dosa for lunch. Both were satisfying and made a complete meal, to last me till the next yoga session.

We had puris and vadai which were both delicious. Serving sizes are smaller than expected but it's no problem as prices are low. Woodlands is a good alternative but to my taste not quite as good as Komala Vilas or MTR1924. Your mileage may vary.

The waiters give you a feeling that you are in a friend's or relative home. The only setback was... More

Dined here with my friends on a weeknight for dinner. Ordered onion uthappam, pepper soup, appam and set dosai. The dosai was great and the chutnies were fresh too. In fact we asked for more chutney by the side. The appam was soft and fluffy too! Overall, the food was good and reasonably priced.

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.
