We finally got back to our hotel in the early evening fairly satiated with some of the best Singapore offers. As the night was still young, my wife said what are we gonna do now...can you eat again, I replied... More

Samy's has been a huge favourite of mine for years. I not only go there frequently but take many overseas visitors. The food and service have always been great. However, I've noticed a very sharp drop in service standards on the last couple of trips. The service staff appears to be very surly - almost as if they've been instructed... More

Overtime we go to Singapore we go there, at least twice! Masala chicken is a must have. I personally love the Crab curry. Best beverage to drink is the ice cold coconuts. Food is served super fast and the staff is very friendly.

Samy's has the charm of British colonialism and the food is very good! If you love Indian food and are in Singapore, don't miss this place.

If you are a curry lover don't miss Samy's. The curries are full on and all pack a punch. Fun place where you can mix it up with the locals.

Been to this restaurant numerous times in last 10 years or more. Had always think their food is great, as good as those popular and well known ones in little India like the Banana Leaf, Muthu's curry etc etc This is a shocker! Service was bad with a bad mood waiter who actually displayed unhappiness when it took us less... More

Good food, good ambient and great experience. We just love it so much and we will return soon. You need a transport or taxi to reach there.

Among the locals Samy's curry house has become something of an institution! It specialised in Indian vegetarian curries served on a banana leaf, although there are plenty of meat and fish dishes to choose from too. Indeed, their fish head curry is truly excellent. It is located well off the tourist track and most of its clientele are locals. Well... More
