Samy's was recommended to us by a coworker who lived in Singapore for many years. This is off the beaten path for tourists but worth the trip! Very reasonable prices, friendly service and great flavor- This family owned and operated establishment is a must on any list of dining places for a visit to singapore! And Dempsy hill is a... More

Samy's Curry is one of the oldest Curry Restaurants in Singapore, situated in an historical colonial house. The Food is served in banana leaves. The ambiente is not high class, nur the food is autentic and realy good. I Love the chicken tikka Marshalls, the dry mutton Curry and the Büroangestellte Rice. The service is typical Indian.

We had a nice lunch here. The only thing we found too oily was the squid. Picture & actual presentation totally off. Naam, fish-head curry, tandoori chicken was delicious.

Probably through all the advertising on various food shows this place has become a bit overpriced, the same - btw excellent - quality of food can be had in Little India for about half the price. If you are only briefly in town you cant miss with this one but if you have more time on your hands dive into... More

Invited by family for lunch. Havent been there for years. The food is still good. Chicken masala as usual spicy and good. Naan has not changed. Portions served are smaller, no complains from me because the quality is there. All of us enjoyed the food. Try the fried promfret. Very nice.

Was invited here by a friend for lunch and the first thing which you like is the ambience. Set in the earlier military barracks, it takes you back in time to a somewhat canteen look in a barrack. We ordered some beer to start which was good considering the fish head which followed was spicy. So the beer helped in... More

Established in 1970 (the old Civil Service Sports Club), I've been frequenting 'Samy's' restaurant since 1982. In other words hundreds of times! Obviously the curry is amazingly good, sometimes you dream about it. My favorites include masala chicken (breast), mutton Mysore (wet) and pregnant squid which are to die for. Kingfisher beer compliments nicely. They are famous for fish head... More

If you want to have some good Singaporean style South Indian food, then look no where else! The service was good. Decent food quality. Their chicken masala has always been my favourite. My only complain would be it's a little expensive. But that's the price you pay for Indian food these days.

A decent option to go out for a casual dinner with friends or family. Not many options, in case you are a vegetarian.
