The Banana Leaf Apolo - The Most Recommended Indian Restaurant in Singapore
Built in 1974, this Indian restaurant is certainly the most popular and named as one of the best of Singapore’s Indian Cuisine. Most of my friends recommended me to try having a meal at this place, but I’ve only got the chance to eat there a few days ago when a relative visited us.
Inevitably, the dishes were certainly the best Indian food in Singapore—the Chicken Tikka was marvelous. We also ordered Mutton Vindaloo and Kashmiri Naan (which I liked a lot), accompanied with a serving of Briyani Rice. Oh, and they don’t serve the rice on a plate, but on a banana leaf instead (which you can tell by the restaurant’s name), so prepare to get messy.
I was expecting the price to be more expensive, but it turned out that the price was more sensible than any other restaurants that claim to be an “Indian Cuisine”. For a 3-person dine in, we spent around S$70. However, we did order three glasses of beer with the meal, which I think put up most of the bill.
I regret that I didn’t order the Fish Head Curry which I heard was their specialty, because none of my guests is a fan of fish. Nevertheless, I had an exquisite meal and I would certainly recommend Singapore visitors to try this place if they happen to crave spicy Indian flavor.
To visit the restaurant, take the MRT to Little India Station and walk to Race Course Road. There should be signs on the MRT Station to let you know which exit to take. You can also visit their website at www.thebananaleafapolo.com for directions or other details. [more]
