Slip off your shoes, find a cushioned spot on the floor and allow Singapore’s Lagnaa Barefoot Dining to feed your soul. Occupying a small home in Little India, Lagnaa is a cosy Indian restaurant with plenty of mouth-watering smells and lively music to embrace all who pass through its doors. At the helm of the tandoor is head chef Kaesavan, a big believer in the power of great food shared with great company. Together with his team, Kaesavan takes traditional Indian dishes from the North and South, and pumps them with new life using modern techniques and flavours. With hospitality as warm and comforting as the food, you’ll soon forget you’re in a restaurant on Upper Dickson Road and not the dining room of somebody’s home.
Food sounds delicious?
Get a table before they're gone
I have been longing for some time now to visit this Michelin Star restaurant. However every time something or the other came up. Today also, I had to reschedule my reservation 3 times before finally showing up. I was grateful that I did. I wanted to experience the barefoot dining but that section was full already, so we had to settle with the normal table seating arrangement. This restaurant is famous for it chilli challenges. It has 10 levels, and till now nobody has been able to complete the final level 10. Can I be the one, probably not 😅? But if someone can, they can go home with prize money of S$10,000. My main motive for today was to have a taste of the highly acclaimed food here. We ordered for the Michelin Vegetarian hungry set menu. They would ask you for the level of spiciness, we went with 3, as the ladies that accompanied me didn’t like much spicy food. There are three sections, Not So Hungry/Hungry/Very Hungry, one can choose depending on the number of options (dishes) they want to try. They start serving with Papad and mint chutney, which we devoured in a blink. The main set consists of Chilli Gobi/Channa Masala/Vegetable Korma and Aloo Palak. It comes with Garlic Naan and Saffron Rice. Of the lot, I found Channa Masala to be the best. Though the other dishes were not bad either. The best thing about the food is that it’s very simple with less masala and can be compared to a home-cooked meal. Recommended and would try out the Flexatarian menu next time.
Service is still excellent but somehow the food is not as great as before! :( we had the michelin set
Very good second experience at Lagnaa! We're both very happy
