Have you heard of sugar, spice & everything nice? I think you heard The Powerpuff Girls wrong. It was Prata, Biryani & everything curry! ๐Ÿฅ˜ Ratings take into consideration price of the dish, quality of the dish, and overall service and ambience of the location if applicable!๐ŸŒŸ

Absolutely amazing chicken biryani! Chicken was tender, free flow curry was super spicy and flavourful. Super worth it. Delicious food, decently priced, and great ambience. Iโ€™ll keep coming back here again for this!

Super spicy and tasty prawns! Cooked with onions and dry chilli and supposedly a popular dish in Chettinadu. I liked it a lot but this is a dry dish, so you canโ€™t dip your naans in it! I ate it with rice. Would love to try a curried prawn dish from here some day๐Ÿ˜Š

Tender chicken and fish tikka, huge tiger prawns and paneer tikka. You get to try a variety of meats with this platter albeit pricey. So if you do have a decisive choice on what kind of tikka you want, it would be better just going for that!

This was a decent place of Briyani. Curry was adequately spicy although I felt like it couldโ€™ve been spicier and more flavourful. The chicken was huge! And the fried onions that came with the basmati rice have an added crunch to it. A good Indian food fix for those who are craving it and around Tampines Mall!

This is essentially Butter Chicken. Iโ€™m not making things up, I pointed to this in the menu and the staff just said โ€˜okay butter chicken!โ€™๐Ÿ˜‚ but as described, I got what I expected. This made the perfect complementary dip for the naan. The curry was thick, creamy and was a wonderful blend of spices and flavours that included both butter and cream. A decent amount of tender chicken pieces as well. It was a really great experience and the staff were very lovely๐Ÿ˜Š foresee myself coming here for more authentic South Asian cuisine!

Hot & spicy tiger prawns in a thick gravy. I loved the flavour of this! The thing about South Asian cuisine is that I would never be able to adequately describe Nor express its flavours in words, simply because of how they cook it so meticulously with different spices. So here is an extremely simplified take on this dish. It was Sufficiently spicy, and it is not the kind of thick, cream-based textures other curries would offer. It came with 5 tiger prawns, and although I would love more, I felt that it was a pretty decent portion for the price paid and how well done the dish was.

Garlic naan that is recommended on the menu! This consists of 2 portions, each portion is $4 and is sliced into 2. Thus, pictured is 4 half-portions which are in itself extremely huge. Garlic flavour was great, it wasnโ€™t too oily; I loved the aroma and the texture. Turns out they actually bake it in a tandoor - perhaps this method really elevates the taste, texture and overall deliciousness of this naan.

Where do I start when it comes to perfection? I have been craving butter chicken for the longest time, and this easily satisfies it. This butter chicken was thick, creamy, silky, smooth and rich - anything youโ€™d expect from this dish done well and authentic. There were many layers to flavours of this dish - slightly sweet, slightly sour, slightly buttery, slightly spicy. And when they all come together... pure delight! Dipped my naans with it, and it made my day!
P.S. Because of COVID-19 and their halt on their lunchtime buffet it seems like their crowd has dwindled, and while on the pricier side of food within Biopolis, service here was great and impeccable. The staff were so extremely lovely. Canโ€™t wait to come back here to try so much more again!

Pardon my ignorance when it comes to Indian dishes. This was one plate of fiery prawn mandala which was cooked in a robust tomato onion masala, heavily flavoured with chilli and spices. It wasnโ€™t a fluid, curry texture youโ€™d expect, but rather, a thick, compote-like dish, which would go well with rice, rather than a naan to be dipped in. It is admittedly my first time trying such a dish, and I enjoyed the high levels of spiciness it brought. Generous amount of prawns of about 8-9? Loved it, enjoyed it, and worth the try; but I must warn you - it is an acquired taste, especially if you canโ€™t handle spice, and you prefer (like me) your curries.

$3.50 for 2 huge triangular pieces of thin, but crisp naan with garlic? Yes please. Not the chewy, thick kind flatbread one might expect, but I loved this anyway. Dip in a curry of your choice and voila - perfection.

So disappointing.. I havenโ€™t been here in a while, but the standards have really dropped. The prata lacked texture. It was not crispy, not chewy, and it was just soft and dry. I felt like they didnโ€™t use a whole egg at all - the egg was dry and spread out in small bits through the prata, without the eggy texture Iโ€™d expect. The onion looked raw and uncooked.
Overall hygiene standards look really problematic as well... the whole atmosphere was just really noisy and rowdy.

So disappointed by this chicken briyani. While the portion of rice is significantly huge, it was soggy and not very appetising - so whatโ€™s the point? Plus the chicken is tiny, which did not suit the huge proportion of the rice. Never again.
