Singapore’s locals are slowly coming round to Indian food. Often an afterthought in a city which enjoys a wealth of excellent pan-Asian restaurants, Khansama Tandoori Village in Kent Ridge’s Science Park is starting to change perceptions of Indian curry in the city. Science Park Drive might seem an unlikely spot for an excellent restaurant to hide, but it is a testament to the strength of the cooking at Khansama Tandoori Village that diners are flocking there from town anyway.
It is our considered opinion that when it comes to Indian restaurants, at least Indian restaurants in Singapore, that the places with the very best food are very often the places which from the outside don’t live up to the classic Singaporean glamour. So it is at Khansama Tandoori Village, where the exterior, a largely nondescript shop front, belies the excellence that is being expertly put together in the kitchen. At little out of town on Science Park Drive in the Kent Ridge area, Khansama Tandoori Village makes up for its shortcomings in the aesthetic and geographical departments with superior food and a well-honed menu of Indian classics.
Finding great Indian curry can be a challenge, but the team at Khansama Tandoori Village in the Science Park of Kent Ridge (you can also find them along Serangoon Road in Little India) ensure that those in the know won’t be deprived of classic Indian dishes like aloo chaat, chicken tikka masala and paneer butter mushroom any longer. Find great food, warm service and above all, a focus on the food above all else along Science Park Drive’s Khansama Tandoori Village – it's worth the trip out.
We had a pretty good experience. The food was nice and service was good as well. Had a great time celebrating the birthday. Quiet place too.
Food was great and overall service was good too! I have only good things to say about the restaurant. I will definitely recommend to others.
Had great fun with friends. Perfect setup for enjoying Indian food. Look forward to going again. Must the the paneer tikka and paneer shashlik, yummy
Very hassle free process. Reserved my table in less than 5 minutes. Was pleased with the delicious food and love the ambience. Would definitely use it again.
Excellent service and great Indian food. We were there for dinner on a weekday, restaurant was not crowded....service was fast. Very authentic and fresh Tandoori chicken. vegetable jalfrezi and paneer tikka masala were great with right level of spices. If you don't drive -take the complimentary science park shuttle service from Kent Ridge MRT
The lunch buffet at Khansama Tandoori Village offers good food at reasonable prices. The food at the buffet table is also replenished at a fast speed.
We went for the lunch buffet. The food was good, the staff were helpful and brought extra naan to the table. But the restrooms were poorly ventilated and smelled bad. The rest of the restaurant was very nice, with good ambiance and decor.
Good service, tasty food and reasonable prices. Definitely try it if you haven't been and weren't sure whether to go. The menu is extensive so ask advice on best dishes. The air con is cranked up so its cold inside....take a shawl!
The food was good but to charge for papadum at $4 for 2 pieces is too much. Service was mediocre and price was on the higher end. The Science Park Drive restaurant is kind of deserted and there is nothing to do there except eat.
Food is good. However, the table arrangements were not ideal. We had 27 pax and they split to 2 tables - 23 pax at one table and 4 pax another table. They should have made an equal split or all at one long table.
