Aside from the incredibly awesome, and endless curry dishes, I must admit, it was the company of a fellow VT member, Kriesta, and her significant other, Hysham, that made this night most special.
Based on their suggestions, we viewed all the various dishes on offer, and selected from them many numerous delights. What a wonderful way to share a dining experience...new friends, great conversation, and a myriad of dishes to explore.
Sorry, no photos. In all honesty, the thought never crossed our minds.
Favorite Dish All the curry dishes at Muthus’s are excellent, and the variety is endless. Ordering, and mutually sharing a variety of dishes is the Asian way of dining. It is a brilliant concept, and among friends, there is simply no other way to dine. I cannot imagine more fun, or a greater time spent with friends.
This is the place to dine with friends, be they long standing, or just met. It is also a place to "pig out" as the superb curry dishes are both intoxicating, and addictive. The curry is strong, fresh, but it does overwhelm the flavors of the fish, chicken, lamb, beef, or vegetables.
For me, living in Ubud, Bali Indonesia, I found the prices very reasonable, and well within what I would consider reasonable for truly fine and first class Indian food.
My recommendation may seem biased, as I, in truth, shared my dinner with two new friends. That fact aside however, I can’t imagine the culinary delight to be less, even if taken alone. Gladly for me, however, I was blessed by very fine company.
The restaurant is good, serves good Indian vegeterian as well as Non vegeterian food.
They have 3 outlets, I ate at the Muthu's curry at Somerset Mall
Favorite Dish We tried the Dal palak, Roomai roti,dal fry(good),Chicken chettinad(recommended) and Fish fry (not so good)
Another nice restaurant around Fountain of Wealth in Suntec City. Muthu's Curry serves North Indian as well as South Indian specialities. There is a second outlet at 138 Race Course Road.
Favorite Dish I tried a lot of different dishes and all of them were just delicious. If you are a group of two or more, order various dishes and share them. Strongly recommended.
Muthu's Curry has transformed from its humble beginnings as a basic eatery in 1969 to a rather upmarket chain of restaurants today. In fact, its relatively new Suntec branch look so posh that I think it unfortunately created the unwanted effect of deterring most diners, as it actually gives the impression that you are going to spend a bomb just to have a decent meal there.
Nothing is further from the truth and a more than decent meal that includes its famous Fish Head Curry (from S$20) can be had for the average price of S$20~S$30 per person. I hope in the future, they will adopt my suggestion of putting out a menu outside the restaurant so that guests can ascertain that the restaurant is actually pretty affordable. If spicy Indian food is your thing, you are definitely going to have a satisfying dining experience here.
The swanky interiors actually feels surprisingly cosy and provide an interesting contrast to the traditional Indian fares that they serve. It is a great fusion of old and new. For those looking for an experience that match its decors, Muthu's Curry actually feature a rather comprehensive wine menu as well.
Service is good and just to show how the restaurant has adapted with the times, they even take orders via Wifi-enabled PDAs.
For those holding the Suntec Privilege Card, you may wish to know that Muthu's Curry @ Suntec offers a 10% discount upon presentation of the said card. "++" refers to the additional of a 10% service charge, followed by a 5% GST.
Favorite Dish The wonderful thing about Muthu's Curry is that unlike most Indian restaurants that choose to specialize in either North Indian or South Indian dishes, it serves both types of cuisine and do so excellently.
My favourite dish is actually not its signature Fish Head Curry (from S$2++0), but rather the Tandoori Chicken (from S$10++) and Plain Naan (S$2.50++ per serving). The Fish Head Curry is really not that good in that it tasted a little too fishy, but the Tandoori Chicken is simply the most flavourful Tandoori Chicken I had ever tasted, and the Plain Naan has a wonderful fluffy texture beneath its lightly crisped crust that makes it more than good enough to eat on its own! Also, I recommend skipping the Malasa Prawns, which at S$6++ each, is too expensive considering that the freshness of the prawns is questionable - the shell of my prawn simple refused to separate from its flesh.
Other things that are pretty unique includes its Biryani Rice (S$2.50++ per serving) which thankfully is not made with the Tumeric used by lesser Indian eateries, but the King of Spice, Saffron. The Biryani rice is served with freshly fried Papadum, the Indian cracker made from Lentil Beans.
There was not a single dissapointing dish and although the Chicken Masala (S$4++ per piece), Fish Curry (S$3++ per piece), Mutton Curry (from S$6++), and Cabbage Curry (S$3++) I ordered did not taste out-of-the-world, they are nevertheless very delicious and are very cheap, considering their quality and the settting.
Imagine a vase the size of a small melon, stuffed with fragrant rice and chicken. To find the chicken (at the bottom) you have to eat your way through all the solidly packed rice, and by the time you get there, you're full, full, full...
