This place incorporates four different menus – Sri Lankan, north Indian, Indian-Chinese and Punjabi. The latter is a fragrant and spicy tour of the subcontinental interiors. Purists will be thrilled to learn the kitchen uses no milk, ghee or lard, nor does it serve beef or pork. There’s plenty to savour including crunchy fritters of onion and chick-pea flour, and fenu greek-scented Koliwada prawns. The lady’s fingers with caramelised onions are a wonder, as are the skewers of seer fish, all golden with turmeric. Mop up the tongue-searing lamb and spinach with some naan stuffed with cottage cheese. Best seats in the house are on the balcony.

Yesterday as well same experience of RUDE staff! Not allowing us to sit @ a free (non-reserved) table around 22:00 hr to enjoy to views. Were gone within 5 minutes. Please, do not go there when you would like to enjoy yourself together with friends.

Guido said: “This is a really bad place! The arrogance...”
On the 8th of May we visited with 3 guys this restaurant. Let me tell you that only the men who asked us come in for dinner was friendly, thereafter it was the worst experience we ever had in a restaurant. The terrace was empty for 2/3rd, but the Indian waiter seated us at the worst table almost inside the restaurant instead of outside. We asked if we could have one of the table more to the edge of the terrace (which were all empty!). The waiter informed us in a very rude way, that these tables were for 6 and we were only with 3, so we should either take his table, or get the hell out. We were really stupified but his arrogant attitude and immediately decided to leave this terrible place. Reading the other comments on this website it seems that somebody has to pull the plug out of this establishment, sooner the better!!

I am still in shock from our encounter there yesterday. Worst service I ever had in Singapore and we didn't even stay more than 5 minutes! Only half the tables on the roof were occupied at 10PM, there were no reservations for the other tables (we checked, later they denied and said everything was booked!) and yet we were not allowed to choose our own table (for 2)! I have never ever encountered such bulying in a restaurent ever. Staff was rude and completely unaware that they are working in the HOSPITALITY business. All they care about is your money and they don't even pretend to be curtious.
Obviously these people have made too much money off tourists looking for the best view on boat quay. Well, I don't care if this is the last place to eat in Singapore, I will never set foot in that place again and neither should you! Oh and the grease runs off the walls....Yummy!

I went there with my family for our final dinner in Sing after a great vacation. We tried to order the potatoes, but were told that we could not because they take 20 min to cook. Then we tried to order another appetizer and they again told us that was not available.
We then said just take our drink orders and we will decide about the meal. That is when the ridiculous waiter repeated to me a couple times that we must order $30 per person. I said we will order what we order and pay for what we order. He then was belligerent and I about popped him.
I don't let other people ruin my time, and so we had a fantastic night. And the food was good. And the view was great. But the staff are horrible. Just be prepared and in a good humor if you go there.

The waiters are rude, the manager always repeats "Min order $30 per person". This is a disgrace to Indian Food. The treat customers like animals.
Please shut this place down.

A food lover in Singapore said: “An evening wasted!”
Man, I should have checked this site before visiting this restaurant. We thought it is a new restaurant and were pleasantly surprised by view on the terrace. But that is when the fun stopped for the evening. We ordered food and
a) Waiter/Manager was really rude
b) He repeatedly mentioned that we have to order 30SGD/pax which I found amusing but considering we had visitors agreed to it.
c) Service was very slow and bad
d) Food quantity didnot match the prices
e) The food quality was nothing special, actually it was bad, uncooked. and when we asked the chicken tikka to be cooked well, the idiot waiter said "we cannot". Laughable!
I would be happy if contribute to this establishment to close down. It is a disgrace. The owner is an idiot to have such people in his establishment.
I will never go there again and hence forward check the review before trying any restaurant.

GP said: “Rude service”
We went there last Friday for a light dinner. They have this policy that each and every person in a group have to order for at least SGD 30 to earn the right to sit at a table. There were plenty of tables available for us. Despite of this, they still insisted that we must order for over $30. Not everyone felt like eating that much, so we tried to discuss with the staff and the manager.
Ultimately, the manager asked us to leave in a very rude manner. I found it rather surprising and hard to accept.
I am certain I will chose other establishments for Friday dinners in the future.

John said: “Rude service & little value for money”
Four of us went there for dinner last week. Firstly, the waiters were very rude and they kept reiterating that minimum order per person is $30/-. Beer was not chilled & when the food arrived the portion size was really small - $17/- for a cup of dhal which is completely ridiculous. The view is good but I would never go there again.

Do not go here! The service is a disgrace, they have zero idea of what service is in fact! The food is okay but massively overpriced and the portions tiny. There are so many good value Indian restaurants in Singapore there is no need to go anywhere near this one. They also lump a 10% service charge on (mandatory) which is a joke considering the way they treat their customers. I have been twice and both times the same thing... simply rude!

Minimum $30++pp and the restaurant is very inflexible about it. Plus, I only got 2 small skewers of chicken (tandoori), a bowl of rice and a juice for $30. Should have had a pleasant meal of greater value elsewhere. The view is just as nice anywhere along the river bank. You've been warned.

I too have heard of people having to wait ages for their food but the one time i visited i had not problems. The food was great and the views are really great - beats anything else on boat quay!

After waiting an hour and a half and still no sign of food we gave up, as there were many customers ahead of us also waiting. Allow two hours waiting time to get your meal
