Dempsey Hill is lovely, particularly at night with its trees hung with lights and assortment of low buildings converted into a wide range of eateries. Judging by the type of car parked outside, it’s also a popular place with the up-and-coming. There’s plenty of parking which is apparently free at night, which is a good thing as it’s not that...

If you are in for delicious Indian stuff, both vegetarian and non vegetarian, this is the place..Especially their Fishhead curry and chicken Masala are really nice. I also tried the nice chicken cababs.

We ordered shrimps, fish curry, goat meat, okra and chicken. Only the okra was excellent. The rest seem to be all the same curry base. Place was busy and clean. Service was good

Visited Muthu's curry at the Dempsey hill outlet for lunch with around 20 of my colleagues. This was part of our regular team building. Ample choice of food and drinks, as we expected. Good selection of local favourites such as curry fish head and biryanis. There were also a decent variety of North Indian and tandoori dishes. We ordered chicken... More

We use to be great fans of this and another Muthu's branch at Suntec. It is reheated not cooked freshly and the whole meal, apart from the naans tasted tired. Essentially is is Teka Centre quality at four or five times the price.

We went there for the Head fish curry which was average at best, curry had nothing special and the fish head didnt taste fresh, the Malabar fish had much better taste but was extremely small in size. I had better Indian food in many places in New York, wouldnt recommend.

Food did was OK ish, more spicy than tasty, it is pre-cooked and re-heated. We had 2 bottles of water, 2 curry dishes, 2 rice (you are not allowed to share) a rita and a nan bread which came in at just over the S$50 including the 10% service charge. Waiter had to be asked for the change. Will not... More

A bit chaotic but nice staff, food is good but a bit pricey- as usual around Dempsey. You walking around Dempsey and craving a fish head curry (and you are not in a hurry) this is a great spot.

Tried here for Sunday lunch after years of going to Sammys and I think this is better although the atmosphere at Sammys is hard to beat. Clean and air conditioned, nicer fish head curry (but still not as good as Banana Leaf Apolo) and not as rushed. We loved 'Muthu's Chicken Chukka' nice and spicy dry onion and chilli chicken....

It serves mainly South Indian dishes, such as Masala chicken, mutton curry and Briyani Rice, but also offers North Indian cuisine, including Naan, Tandoori chicken and chicken Tikka.

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
