Clean, nice place. The food is OK, but lacks identity: the menu is less diverse than at the original in Little India; more importantly, it is not refined dining (like Rang Mahal, Song of India, Yantra, Punjab Grill, etc) but due to its minuscule portions, is priced closer to those than to the popular Indian (like Samy’s, Banana Leaf, the original Muthu’s, etc). Most foodies would prefer one or the other, rather than the confused middle. Service is extremely slow and not pro-active at all, in fact much worse than at the humble Samy’s also at Dempsey.

One of the best meals to have in Singapore is curry fish head and I always enjoy mine at Muthu's Curry. Go big or go home. When it comes to curry fish head, go for the largest portion to make your trip worthwhile. Large sea bass head ($32) cooked in the fury spicy curry that goes so well with the assortment of naans ($15).


The Gobi Manchurian comes with one 🌶 warning but I reckon it packs a little more heat than some can take. I wish it was a little crispier, the batter was a bit mushy even though it tasted good.

The garlic naan ($4) and cheese naan ($4.50) were pretty standard, not as fluffy as I'd like. The garlic was sufficiently garlicky but the cheese was nothing to shout about.

Can't say I was too impressed with this place. Especially since my favourite curry place is just on the other side of Dempsey. But it has a different air, quieter setting and fancier decor if that's your kind of thing.

This was deeeelicious. The prawns were very nicely seasoned and the batter super crisp. I'm still wondering why it has the -65 name. Is it 65 spices? Was the recipe perfected in the year 1965? Is it an homage to Singapore's country code? Nobody knows.


Quiet enough for conversation and with an alfresco option for cool nights, Muthu's Curry at Dempsey has just the right vibes for a date night or a nice family meal. Foodwise, the wide array also makes this a good option for group dinners. If you choose to have a banana leaf meal, opt for the Biryani Rice ($4 per person) and the Fish Head Curry (small, $22). You might go for the commonly ordered Tandoori Chicken, but you should really order the lesser known, incredibly tasty Irani Tangdi Kebab ($13) — chicken drumsticks marinated in cream that melt in your mouth. Also sensational is their tender Fish Tikka ($11.50). If you're more in the mood for bread, we urge you to try the Romali Roti ($5.50) over the ubiquitous naans. "Rumal" means "handkerchief", explaining the thin, large form of the bread, which goes excellently with tandoori dishes.

I usually come here for dinners with the family whenever we're craving Indian food. We always get biryani rice which comes with 2 veg each, then order other meat dishes to share. Their rice and fish head curry is always satisfying, but it is this dish I can never get enough of. Two chicken drumsticks marinated in cream and spices, then grilled till charred in spots and utterly delicious. This is also one of the rare spots that serves romali roti, a large, thin blanket-like bread that is light and goes with everything! Since you probably already know what butter naan tastes like, try this next time!
