You can read about my last visit where I raved about the South Vegetarian Rice set and the tea. I took more pictures today, including shots of the menu. It’s messy as usual, but oh so yummy. Also I preferred that today they served fried spiced cabbage instead of creamy spinach. I always insist on going to the original restaurant where you’re served and you can have as many top ups as you want. I say $6.80 Singapore dollars for all you can eat is pretty good. The food quality is far superior to those at the fast food versions of Komala Villas which you can find at places like the East Coast Beach. Those are a no-no to me. For instance I find the dhalls and chutneys more dilute there and not as tasty.
If you do come here, don’t worry. You can request for a fork and spoon if you’re not comfortable eating with your fingers.

Didn’t know that there is a difference between the east coast one and this place. The east coast one sure looks like a fast food restaurant.
I love indian food, but ordering can be very confusing for me, especially at food courts. I never really know what I am ordering or how much I may pay because the names of the dishes are not in English! And it seems that you are required to order a set meal almost always!
I think it’s best to scrutinize the menu before ordering, then again there are just so many options it can be confusing.
I have a usual order which is either Vegetarian Rice Set (its actually rice which comes with various dishes and it’s the same in India) or Paper Masala Thosai (the huge rolled up sourish dough thingy with spiced potatoes within).
Masala refers to the spiced potatoes. If you don’t want the potatoes it would be Paper Thosai. Paper Thosai is crispier than just plain thosai, because it’s fried in hot ghee.
