Me and my guy friends from NUS like to come here for dinner from time to time for our murtabak and fried Indian noodles fix. I understand that this place is just past one hundred years old, can you imagine that? Naturally, it's popular, or at least known, not only with the young generation, but also with the older generation like our parents as well. Seating capacity (second floor is air-conditioned) may be limited, but that has never stopped people from coming here and waiting patiently for a table.
Mutton Murtabak: 8.3/10
I like the murtabak here because they're ever so generous with their mutton fillings. Murtabak is really a larger version of Indian roti prata that has chicken/mutton/beef fillings with onions. I heard the chicken murtabak is the best one here. They usually serve this with a curry that to me, tastes different from usual roti prata curries, but like what I always do, I will always ask them for the usual fish curry. The latter does better for me. Back to the murtabak, it was served hot, crisp and yes, filled with fillings. Good stuff.
The staff are very rushed here, and it can be very difficult trying to get their attention. But when you do, they're usually very friendly.
