If you are looking for hearty, wholesome food that is full of flavour – and also packs quite a punch – then what you are really looking for is Indian. Full of aromas, delicate, yet rich in flavour, Indian cuisine is the go-to meal any time of the day.
So, next time you are stuck deciding which Indian restaurant to try, remember our top picks for the best Indian cuisine in town!
If you are dreaming of that soft richness of a dum biryani, slathered in mouth-watering gravy and accompanied by tender pieces of your favourite meat, then Bismillah Buryani is the place for you. Self-proclaimed "the best dum biryani in Singapore", it is very hard to find anyone who disagrees with that Statement, including the Michelin Bib Gourmand Singapore Guide, which listed the restaurant in its 2017 edition, a rare honour for a biryani restaurant. Try the Double Mutton Dum Biryani, with the tender and juicy meat falling off the bone, and you can thank us later.
This small but warm curry shack stacked away in Sentosa is one of the best Indian places in the region – perfect for a quick bite while you are strolling around the beach. There is also a Suntec City and a River Valley outlet. Kurry Korner are bent on serving tasty, fresh food on the spot and vow to never use MSG or preservatives – and the deliciousness of their food is proof enough. Their Chicken Tikka is juicy and soft and if you are looking for a twist, try the Lasooni Chicken Tikka – succulent chicken pieces coated in a marinade of yogurt, garlic and white pepper and slow-cooked in tandoor.
A restaurant with quite a reputation. People come here for the legendary Fish Head Curry, their award winning signature dish, with sea bass, sea bream or red snapper head dressed in rich, fragrant curry with a touch of tamarind. It's served with tasty okra and pineapple slices. We also loved their Chicken-65: marinated in yogurt and authentic Indian spices and then deep fried into crispy yet incredibly moist bites. The stuff that food dreams are made of!
Zaffron Kitchen is an Indian restaurant with an attitude. They are proud of their contemporary, cosmopolitan approach to Indian food that still respects the authentic flavours of traditional Indian cuisine. Here you will find everything you wish for: the Tandoori Chicken, marinated in yogurt, lemon, and their unique blend of spices, is grilled to perfection. For a taste of everything, try the Zaffron Tandoori Platter for four, with a premium selection of Malai Kebab, Chicken Tikka, Mutton Seekh Kebab, Murg Pudina and Fish Tikka. The more, the merrier!
The people behind Curry Culture love bold, hearty flavours – and it shows in the lovely food they cook. Whether you are a meat lover or a vegetarian, Curry Culture will keep you happy with their wide array of flavoursome curries: try their mouth-watering Butter Chicken, coated in tomato, cream and fenugreek or their heavenly Dahi Baingan – smoked mashed eggplant and green peas topped with refreshing yoghurt. What more can you ask for?
