About Chat Masala

The East Coast of Singapore is known as a haven for Indian food, and once you try Chat Masala you will know why. Employing tasteful colour combinations in a modern setting, with contemporary art adorning the walls, you get the idea this restaurant is not resting on the laurels of standard Indian fare. Instead, classic favourites are taken and twisted by passion, care and fresh ingredients into their perfected versions - Chat Masala is not trying to reinvent the wheel, they are just improving it. Take their butter chicken, for example, is not a bland blob of curry on rice, but rather a rich, silky gravy with an intense, fragrant tomato base, which is served with soft prata flatbread to be dipped and devoured, along with a side of Indian cottage cheese through a delicate spinach paneer sauce. If you haven’t already taken off towards Upper East Coast Road in hunger, book a table now to avoid missing this authentic but unique Indian experience.

Chat Masala is a restaurant that has always maintained its quality of food all these years however busy or not. We hv been going there since it opened in the 90s. Good Indian food in nice quiet neighbourhood.

Back for 2nd consecutive week and the owner treated us to the restaurant's popular Fish Vadais, knowing that we live quite far away :) Love the Palak Paneer and Lacha Paratha, which is naan-like paratha grilled in the tandoor with a drizzle of butter. Found the Chicken Tikka here are a tad too dry though. Overall, we enjoyed the dining experience at Chat Masala.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Mint and Green Chilli Chutney that came with the pappadam, Dhal Makhni, Masala Chicken, Plain Naan and Chapatti! Reasonably priced - there's 10% service charge but no GST. Spices are well balanced and curries not too salty or rich. We will definitely return to work our way through their menu.

Best kept secret for a great Indian cuisine meal. We’ve been getting great meals from Chat Masala for years even though we live on the opposite end of Singapore. The meals are hearty yet unpretentiously refined. Only challenge sometimes is parking. That being said, we always managed to find a spot albeit a bit of a walk away.
