There are plenty of places to pick up an Indian meal in Singapore, from the upmarket white tablecloth places of the Downtown Core to the Little India enclave up on Racecourse Road. In Clarke Quay, RAS - The Essence of India tries to do something markedly different to the standard curry house fare. They offer a range of dishes that distinguish them from the norm, with a menu that takes in the whole of India rather than just one region, with lesser known specialities such as kachi mirchi, a curry cooked with green chillies and cashew nut and tandoori lobster, a Singapore seafood taste on the Indian repertoire. Take the train to Clarke Quay metro and wander over the Read Bridge towards the shopping centre, where you can find RAS - The Essence of India on the riverfront, waiting to welcome you in and take your order – just remember to book your table ahead of time.
Dear diners, please note that riverside seating is subject to availability.
Wanted to rate this as one of the top choice of Indian Restaurant. Awesome food. A little pricey but everything else is first class. Will definitely want to recommend this restaurant when any of our guests were to request for Indian culinary.
AWESOME PLACE , TASTE OF FOODS IS PURE INDIAN, HOMELY AND FRIENDLY , RIVER SIDE IS SO BEAUTIFUL, AND SERVICE IS VERY FAST. FELLING LIKE INDIA
RAS The Essence Of India is the nice Indian restaurant on the banks of Clarke Quay. Great location with fine dining. I would recommend it to my family and friends.
It’s in good location, nice river view, food was good, it was nice service, I liked chicken tikka, fish tikka, biryani, butter naan and romali roti :)
Awesome food with Great Ambience and really taste so good. I bet cant find good taste of Indian food anywhere else in Singapore. its very crowded as I visited them on valentines day. it was a memorable valentines day with bit pricey menu but it worth it. for better knowledge of price 2 person will cost you around S$150.00 with 3 glasses of wine. will surely go again but need to reserve before otherwise waiting time around 1 hour. lucky yesterday I reserved my table :-)
As such it was a nice experience. Food was good - we ate Mughlai food Service was prompt and was well attended to Noise level was not high No attached rest room is a limitation The cost was affordable I would like to recommend to others if they want a moderately expensive Indian restaurant
With their hospitality, I was able to have a very good time with my family. Their dishes served were nicely cooked according to my taste as I asked them. Will come again soon.
The waiters were confused in bringing the right order to the table. Wrong dishes Kept on coming to the table on several occasions. Finally, we had the veg platter whc was brought to us in place of the non veg platter whc was ordered!
A beautiful location on the water at Clark Quay.Great service. Very friendly staff and the most amazing Indian food. A must visit on your trip to Singapore. :)
Good food- light and not heavy! Which is a good sign of home cooked meal. The service was good and attentive. The seating outdoors need to be improved- it is too close to the next tables and you feel congested.
