What a find! I stumbled on the Banana Leaf at lunchtime as a brief air conditioned respite from the heat outside, and ended up returning a few times during my week in Singapore, bringing colleagues who all enjoyed it as much as I did! Modest...More

It's been our ritual for almost 30 years to go to the Banana Leaf for a meal when visiting Singapore. The place hasn't changed much in all that time. The curries and biryani's are well spiced and reasonably priced and it's impossible to avoid over-eating....More

If you are into spices amd spiciness, don't hesitate. Everything there is full of flavor. Too bad I don't like their palak paneer. It's doesn't have much cootage cheese and it's not spinack puree. Their mutton mysore and chicken masala is nice.

With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander
past traditional barbershops while local residents in
brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from
decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful
shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge.
Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,
