Anjappar’s meteoric rise to global Indian restaurant dominance began all the way back in 1964. Now the Anjappar empire is represented in Dubai, Canada, Malaysia, the USA, Australia, London… and Singapore. Even here there are multiple Anjappar restaurants to choose from, but if you’re after authentic Indian cuisine why not head to Little India, right? Anjappar’s Race Course Road restaurant is the perfect spot to taste the flavours of Chennai close to the beating heart of the city.
By now, Anjappar is synonymous with Chettinad cuisine among global curry lovers. The secret to Anjappar’s success has been their ability to walk the fine line between tradition and innovation, preserving the ancient culinary arts of India while revisiting the basic ingredient and spice profiles of their dishes to suit the contemporary palate. Basically, they listen to their customers – and with the longevity and popularity to prove it, their formula evidently works, here in Singapore’s Little India as elsewhere.
The menu at Anjappar’s branch down Race Course Road is astonishing – so we recommend to first-time visitors to this palatial restaurant to give the house specials a try. This way you can get an idea of how Chettinad cuisine has been transposed to Singapore’s Little India, staying true but necessarily adapting to some extent. Of particular interest to thrill-seekers when it comes to Indian and Indian fusion cuisine are the Indo-Chinese dishes like ‘Gobi Manchurian’ dry stir-fried cauliflower, ginger prawns, and Manchurian fish curries. There’s far too much to relate, so we can only, in the end, recommend you book a table and begin your journey with Anjappar.
