Trust both Cecil and Vince to send a table of food and we can eat it over several meals. If you have followed my page regularly, you will probably noticed that we love Indian food a lot and Karu’s definitely ticked all the right boxes for me in terms of flavour, portion and variety. The signature Curry Fish Head ($26, small) is the star for me as the red snapper meat is firm and tender to the bite, while the gravy is perfect alongside some white rice. The other dishes that we have gotten included the Chicken Masala ($7), Chicken 65 ($7), Palak Paneer ($11) and portions of biryani rice and naans, all equally delish that is worth all the calories.

The last visit I paid @karusindianbananaleaf was back when they were at Sime Darby Centre. Since then, they have returned to their original location. Took my parents there for lunch a week ago and we basically rolled out of there after. Yup, over-indulged as per the usual 😆
Their signature Curry Fish Head (small: $23) wasn’t as spicy as I recall it to be previously but the gravy was aromatic, full of body and appetising. There was also a decent amount of brinjal and okra. Besides that signature, I picked a few other dishes for us to share. While the Fried Fish Roe was alright but not something I’d reorder, the Mutton Mysore was very tasty albeit on the slightly chewy side. The surprise hit was the flavourful Fish Cutlet which had more fish in it than expected. Besides that, we agreed the other standout from lunch was the Curry Pumpkin. All of us loved it at first bite.


Affordable and delicious banana leaf ala Southern Indian style.
On picture is Chicken Briyani rice 9. 4$ and ginger tea $2. GST applies.
Place is very clean and staff very friendly and fast service.
P/S:Try eating with hands. You will enjoy this experience.

Note this spot down for when you are around Bukit Timah. A crowd favourite is the fragrant and juicy Chicken 65 ($6.50) — think popcorn chicken infused with fried curry leaves. For mains, their flavourful Chicken Masala ($5.70) pairs amazingly well with garlic naan and pappadums. Otherwise, share the creamy and tangy Curry Fish Head ($13.80) that is good for four— order some briyani rice to go with it!

This chicken masala dish ($5.70) was such a treat with its savoury umami masala gravy. Ginger, garlic, onion, tomato and other ingredients all blend so well to create a wonderful flavour that paired equally well with biryani rice, white rice or the pappadums.


The first time I ate here was way back in 2004.

Location just next to King Albert Park mrt station.

Food standard is just as good as always.
