Chef Milind Sovani has created a show-stopping pan-Indian meal in a charming Scotts Road black-and-white bungalow. On the menu, which criss-crosses the subcontinent’s regional cuisines, you’ll find melt-in-the-mouth Keralan-spiced lamb shanks, tandoori prawns bathed in a pomegranate marinade, and the Lucknavi classic of Gilawat kebabs – pan-seared ground lamb patties perfumed by cardamom, ground rose petals and raw papaya.

Seems like Song of India has been getting many bad comments and reviews. Song Of India must improve on the service from manager to waiters and waitress and to the food.

My girlfrend and I were fortunate to be taken to this restaurant, so I can't comment on 'value'............however, I can comment on everything else !!
Firstly the service........pretty much excellent. The welcome friendly, and staff were not over attentive. We wanted to experience as many dishes as possible - our waiter patiently and expertly guided us through the menu selecting half a dozen dishes that went well together, yet provided contrast in every aspect.......taste, texture, colour, ingredients, and of course spiciness !! Served with delicious Saffron rice - all presented on a plate that resembled an artist's palette together with a piping hot basket of mixed Naans. Having tasted each of the offerings, we were then told that we could have more of any of them......so we did - all of them !! We didn't really have room for dessert, but we had them anyway - the Kulfi nestled well on top of the already full stomach !!
My only disappointment was that the extensive wine list didn't include any from India - they aren't popular enough to make it to many wine shops, so this looks like a good opportunity for The Song of India to be a bit different..........I've had the good fortune to enjoy many a good bottle from the Grover Vineyard whilst eating fine curries in India.........it would be nice to do the same in Singapore !!

The decor and the ambiance of the restaurant is extremely nice. I was impressed when I first walked, however it had all gone downhill from there.
The food was shockingly horrible, (this is an understatement), honestly it was bad enough for me to have ever gone back.
Fine Indian dining??? The chef is armed with a squeeze bottle of chutney and literally drizzles it all over the sub-par food. I've had a better meal on Air India, which says a lot, when I'm paying $100 a head....it was bland, tasteless, overly creamy.
The staff and service....:(. No comment...it got to a point where the person sitting beside me...said to the waiter...when trying to get the bill....after endlessly waiting..."we have sent man to the moon, you can make this happen!"
I'm not difficult to please, but this place...unbelievable. THUMBS DOWN.

I had recently been to this restauarnt & believe me they have very tasty food with a fusion twist & elegant setting. We went for a set meal & found that each & every single dish served was very tasty. Especially the malai kulfi was so tempting that felt like having it more & more.
I must say that it is one of the fantastic restaurant in Singapore & will keep returning to this place.

Gary Williams said: “Pathetic Food ”
Had been here for Dinner the other day with a couple of colleagues and I must say that the food they serve is not all that great. The chicken was raw and served a bit cold . The spinach was nice but the lamb shanks were over cooked, and the naan breads were so cold when they arrived on the table .
The wait staff didn't even apologize when I mentioned to them about the naan breads.
I guess this restaurant is a must not go for anyone who wants to treat his clients to a great meal..

Would like to recommend The Song Of India to all who are looking for really good Indian food with fine dining. We had dinner the other evening and the ambiance, the food and service are all par excellence.
Will definitely visit again

To all who are thinking of dining at this place, just to give you a heads up that the restaurant is SO poor that they DO NOT even have change for a sgd$1000 note... Pls the manager (Gomez) can tell you in your face that you can pay with card...

Ivah said: “Extremely HORRID service”
For those who are dining there, PLS be informed that the restaurant is SO POOR that they DO NOT have change for a SGD$1000 note to change and WILL DEMAND that you pay with a card even if you don't have! EXTREMELY RUDE MANAGER GOMEZ AS WELL. I seriously think the management should look into re-training your staff.

Bob Smith said: “Decidely average curry house”
Visited Dec 07. Wannabe fine dining place but no better than your local UK curry house. Haughty waiting staff with their own attitude. Poor service. Food tasted very average with no thought to presentation. Very limited a la carte menu. Will not return.
