With a thriving seafood scene in Singapore, it's no wonder that fish is a much-loved takeaway option. But it's fish curry that seems to top the popularity boards at restaurants all across the country – so here's a peek at some of our favourites from around town.
1. Fish Tikka, Kurry Korner
Kurry Korner specialises in fine Indian cuisine, producing countless lip-smacking dishes. You could go for the Goan Prawn Curry cooked in a coconut gravy, or the hot Madras fish, but nothing packs a punch like their delectable Fish Tikka with a squeeze of fresh lemon for extra zing. You can order this with a delicate white fish grilled in a tandoori, or the Hariyali version, with meaty chunks of boneless Red Snapper.
2. Fish Head Curry, Samy's Curry Restaurant
Fancy a mean pot of curry? Head over to Samy's and indulge in one of the most flavoursome dishes you'll ever eat. The fish head curry is made of red snapper, stewed for softness, and blending Indian, Malaysian and Singaporean styles. It's a unique creation that's steeped in history – and a signature dish here.

3. Curry Fish Beehoon, Yu Cun Claypot
I never really fancied curry with noodles or beehoon. I'm a, I like my curry with rice or bread person. So this bowl of curry fish beehoon actually won me over. Curry gravy was fragant and thick. Entire bowl was filled with fish slices, tau pok, French beans, bean sprouts and tomatoes. Packed full of ingredients. My only downside of this dish is that the fish slices are a tad dry. But other than that, this was an awesome and satisfying bowl of curry fish beehoon. They even have curry prawns beehoon! Each bowl is priced at $5.90++ and comes with a free glass of f&n orange as well. I shall be back for the curry fishhead with rice! 😋😋
If you're looking for a curry that's a little gentler on the taste buds, check out the curried beehoon fish at the Yu Cun Claypot. There may be less heat in this dish, but it's filled with ocean-fresh seafood flavours as well as plenty of vibrant vegetables to cut through the sweeter flakes of fish.

4. Sea Monster Curry, Monster Curry
The chefs at Monster have become famous for their Combo Curries, where you can combine lots of different textures and ingredients – and it's their Seafood Monster Curry that's the star here, as you'll get deep-fried fish katsu, scallops and shrimp tempura to go. Add extra toppings, pick your spice level, and enjoy a Japanese take on seafood curry.

5. Pepper Chilli Fish, Indian Wok
If you prefer your fish sweet and sticky but with a crunchy coating, you'll love the Pepper Chilli Fish dish served at Indian Wok. Chunks of fish are pan-fried to perfection, tossed in fragrant ginger and scallions, as well as red chillies for some added dry heat. Don't forget to order a side of shrimp fried rice for the perfect seafood supper.
