It was nice to get outside the urban area in be in a different part of Singapore. The grounds are a former nutmeg plantation and British army barracks. The food was delicious. Enjoyed the mutton curry and chicken masala as well as the sides.

Eating alfresco on a cool afternoon, with fans whirling above, I tucked into garlic naan, butter chicken and gobi (cauliflower). Crunched on poppadum. Washed it all down with refreshing lime juice. That's the life! Food was reasonably good, moderately priced and the service was unobtrusive. I chose to visit at 1.30 pm, by which time the lunch crowd had dispersed,... More

This is one of the most authentic Indian restaurants I've been to outside India. The authenticity applies to not only the food, but the restaurant decore, atmosphere and the waiters.

This was my first experience with banana leaf plated food. But it was quite tasty, and inexpensive. This is not a fancy place ... no way would one consider it for a romantic date ... way too much florescent lighting! Still, for a good taste of southern Indian food, this place is a good bet.

As an Fellow indian, it can be difficult to find for good indian food which really fills you up and satisfies you. I am glad to say that this is considered to be one of those places which does this. Rice will keep coming in while you finish your food on the Banana Leaf provided and the curry and the... More

I love this place, my family has been coming here for ages. The food is always a treat, as well as the vibe. It's a bit more old school than what Singapore normally looks like and there's lots of bars in the Dempsey area to check out for a drink after. Definitely a cool add-on to the Singapore experience. I... More

Whilst Samys has rather overextended its menu recently, the old standbys are still v good: mysore mutton, chicken tikka, fish head curry, etc. All served on a banana leaf with a pile of rice and swilled down with icy draft beer

Not the service, ambiance or other Indian food. The Fish Head Curry was exceptional, but the rest of the meal was average, and servers had minimal English-language skills making ordering an adventure.

Samy's was recommended to us by a coworker who lived in Singapore for many years. This is off the beaten path for tourists but worth the trip! Very reasonable prices, friendly service and great flavor- This family owned and operated establishment is a must on any list of dining places for a visit to singapore! And Dempsy hill is a... More
