    Samy's Curry Restaurant is definitely a MUST for Indian food lovers. Unfortunately though, I feel their original branch at Dempsey serves MUCH better food. Fret not, the Marina Sq branch is still good. Their food though not super delicious, still manages to make me crave for it. Extra points are given to them for having more English speaking and younger staff who are quick to serve you. If it is your first time trying, I suggest going before dinner time cuz some of their items are leftover from morning (typical of any food court actually) and are actually best eaten when it's made on the spot.

      Samy's Curry at Marina Square has been closed for a very long time. The space has now been taken over by a Hong Kong Cafe.

    Got Kick!

    For a complete Indian meal, get a rice (plain or briyani) with vegetables set along with a meat dish. My personal favourite is the masala chicken, which doesn't hold back on the spiciness. I sort of get a kick out of the red hot masala.

    If you are dining in a group, try their fish head curry served in a claypot. Hot and spicy, perfect for communial eating.

    You will find this place in Food Loft at Marina Square.

    I used to lunch at Samy's quite often as it serves up generous portions of rice, vegetables, papadum and curry gravy. There was also a great service champion by the name of Kumar. Unfortunately, he left, and I feel is a great loss for regular customers.

    I had to cut down because the good meals kept me from staying awake in office and of course, I was developing a spare tire.

    Anyway, to get your money's worth here, take a seat in their dining area. When you do that, you get better service, food is served at your table. Out of the dining area is the rest of the food court, so everything becomes self-service. Inside, you can request for extras for the vegetables, rice, papadum and gravy. Or at least that was the case in the past, when Kumar was around. As for their "mains", i.e. meat dishes, well, the portions are large enough for you not to ask for more.

    One quirky thing that probably came from its restaurant origins: Samy's serve beer and wine.

    Lastly, to forewarn any of you interested to give Samy's a try - DO NOT wear white or any light coloured clothing. The gravy will stain and stay. DO bring an empty stomach DO prepare for very hot stuff DO be patient with the Indian uncle with grey hair. He is loud (which consequently perceived as rude) only because he is a bit deaf and does not understand English very well. If the situation is hopeless for you, ask another person at the counter.
