Think zesty curries, delicious kebabs, and even options with a modern twist

With a reputation for piquant, intense flavours, Indian cuisine is sure to quell anyone’s hunger for curries and spiced meats. To know where you should head to for mouth-watering biryani, chicken tikka masala and palak paneer, just check out the following list of trusty restaurants.
 

Indian Express
 

Opened by none other than one-Michelin-starred restaurant The Song of India, expect nothing short of delightful, traditional North Indian and Lucknavi cuisine at Indian Express. Known for its signature offerings including kebabs, biryani and naan, the joint features modern Indian dishes with a unique twist. It's the fastest way to satiate your cravings for quality Indian cuisine.


The Song Of India
 

Helmed by Chef Manjunath Mural, The Song Of India continues to impress as the first Indian restaurant in Singapore to receive a Michelin star. Head here for their authentic Chicken Tikka Masala as well as the homemade kulfi, but don’t miss out on the Jain vegetarian dishes as well.


Thevar
 

If you’ve ever dined at Meta and Kimme, then get ready for yet another sophisticated concept from the same folks. Thevar specialises in modern interpretations of Indian flavours from the Malay Peninsula, given the elevated treatment, yet stays comforting and authentic. It's also enjoyable to see Penang-born Chef Manogren Murugan Thevar’s creativity shine, with how he keeps things interesting by frequently changing up the menu while offering European-style sharing plates.


Tiffin Room
 

A Raffles Singapore stalwart since 1892, Tiffin Room is often remembered for its delectable North Indian cuisine served within gorgeous tiffin boxes. Showcasing an interactive dining experience thanks to the tableside service by chefs, revel in the luxe experience while you feast on specialities such as the Nalli Roganjosh that’s a lamb shank with Kashmiri Indian spices and dried chilli paste as well as the authentic Palak Paneer made with Indian cottage cheese, spinach and a myriad of spices.


Zaffron Kitchen
 

For good old-fashioned favourites like Seekh Mutton Kebab and Fish Tikka, turn to Zaffron Kitchen that boast three outlets including one at East Coast and another at Westgate mall. If you’re throwing a party in the comfort of your own home, also feel free to order in some of their meals as those naans, curries and stews still hold up well during travel.
