Everyone can now enjoy superlative northern Indian cuisine. Head down Sembawang Road and look for the glowing blue tigers (shere or shir means tiger or lion in Urdu and Punjabi) that act as a beacon for Sher’s initiates and returning customers. This northern Indian restaurant has an amazing atmosphere, diligent service and mouthwatering dishes for you to try. There’s a great bar and good, strong coffee, too, if you happen to be passing by and need a pick me up.
Great food, attentive service! Their lunch sets are a steal at $7.90 (with the option of topping up $1 for a soft drink). We also got the palak paneer, which even our baby loved! The owners even offered complimentary plain basmati rice to our baby - a very sweet gesture!
Great experience with affordable food and nice atmosphere. Will come back again
Food is affordable and nice. Will recommend to people I know.
The Jungle Book’s Shere Kahn was a king in the animal kingdom. Taking its name
from the Urdu and Punjabi word for tiger or lion, Singapore’s Sher is a king among
Indian restaurants, and for sure some of its dishes have considerable bite. Serving
up cuisine with northern Indian, Punjabi and Pakistani influences, Sher is a welcome
addition to the dining possibilities down Sembawang Road. Simply and elegantly
decorated, this long, narrow restaurant features a terrace for al fresco dining when
it’s warm (or your curry’s too hot!) and an interior flanked on one side by a well-
stocked bar for thirst-quenching beers, wines, and icy, mixed long drinks. Sher is
glowing with warmth throughout – a tantalising teaser of what’s to come.
Sher’s casual dining philosophy belies the stellar northern Indian cuisine on offer at its Sembawang Road premises. True, you can pop in for a coffee or a beer – its open frontage and terrace is an invitation for that sort of thing. But, of course, the real magic happens when you sample a dish from this superlative Singapore Indian restaurant. Seafood, chicken, and mutton curries abound, and there are many delicious biryani and vegetable dishes on offer, too. Warm up to these with a starter, and match your choice with fresh naan and a cold beer and you’ll discover that you’ve got the appetite of a tiger, and a feast at Sher fit for a king.
