Elegant dining room with great service. The menu has interesting and unusual dishes, especially among street food and appetiser offerings, but the flavour is extremely mild, too tuned down for western palates.

This family restaurant has been in business since 1950, and at this Dempsey location since the 80’s. To its fans’ delight, it has recently been allowed to stay on, although many tenants in Blocks 15&16 have been invited out for redevelopment of the Tanglin Village area. Samy’s is a bit of a cult, with loyal customers, many of whom first came here as kids. The clientèle is largely Asian, and mainly local at that. The fish head curry is awesome. Other dishes are not the best Indian you can have in Singapore, but you come here mainly for the experience, and the fish head! To really savour the curry, eat with your fingers. Extraordinarily efficient service from friendly roaming wait staff, who can happily refill your needs in rice, pappadum, or vegs. The dishes, including the fish head curry, are served within ONE or TWO minutes after ordering! Prices are very reasonable. Don’t overindulge though - one look at the well-fed managers would tell you why you shouldn’t!

They have hardly changed the menu over the last 20 years. It is simple, healthy, homey food but so delicious and addictive. In addition to the soups, we always order the same dishes when we come here: samsui ginger chicken, hometown tofu, Shan fu leaves, steamed minced pork, olive rice. Even the waiters are homey and friendly - the culture of this place is strong indeed. Reasonable prices too.

It’s unfortunate (for the owners) that this is located at the relatively-lower-traffic end of the mall, for in my opinion this is one of the best North Indian restaurants in Singapore, in the same category as Rang Mahal, Yantra, and Song of India. The lamb dishes are especially succulent - be it the lamb chops or the Nalli biryani. Surprisingly, the breads are not so good. Proactive and knowledgeable service. Pricey (count on $80 per pax without booze) but worth it.

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
