More about The Song of India, Singapore

Since its establishment in 2006, The Song of India has been stunning locals with its sophisticated modern Indian cuisine. Located inside of a classic bungalow, this Newton Indian restaurant transports diners to a different place and time. With beautiful chandeliers, elegant furnishings and white columns throughout, the restaurant feels fit for royalty. Singapore’s The Song of India on Scotts Road also includes VIP rooms where diners can dine privately in a space closed off from the rest of the restaurant.

Master chef Manjunath Mural prides himself on quality in his kitchen, utilising only the freshest produce and the finest ingredients in the contemporary Indian specialities he and his crew create. Signature dishes at The Song of India in Singapore’s Newton include the star spiced foie gras, the nalli gosht (lamb shanks in a Lucknavi and herb jus), and the lobster molley (pan-seared lobsters in a lemon and chilli marinade). For dessert, the kulfi is never a bad idea, and the French Connection, creme brulee with nutmeg flavoured wine, is a decadently delicious way to end the meal. This upscale Indian restaurant is hugely popular – reservations are a must!

The food on our recent visit was superb and beautifully presented, as usual. Service, too, is always quick, friendly and attentive. Although we return here on a reasonably regular basis and so have favourite choices, we still find ourselves enticed by dishes we have not tried from the extensive and varied menu. This time I ordered black cod from the starter menu, which was exquisite.

It was a wonderful experience. The servers Prasad and his team were most courteous and helpful. They helped us choose the right dishes. The ambiance was nice but can definitely be improved. The food was delicious and we did not have to wait long. We were two of us so the quantity was just right to satisfy our hunger. The pricing is pretty steep though. Being an Indian I am rarely impressed by Indian restaurant and usually avoid them. Yesterday was our new year so we wanted to get some Indian food and we were not disappointed. Loved the experience and will look forward to going back in the future. But for larger groups, it can be a very expensive meal and while the serving will feel small.

Great Indian food in a very posh setting. The diversity of the menu is also very impressive and the staff is very warm and inviting.

The food was amazing. Staff was attentive and ambiance was nice. There was a wide range of dishes available, although the dish we wanted could not be prepared. There was also a bit of confusion with our reservation. They cancelled it a few hours before saying they were fully booked. We called and were told to come in earlier if we still wanted a table. The restaurant wasn’t full at all so I’m not sure why we had to come in earlier. Overall, a delicious meal.

Food was very good with some novel dishes not normally seen on Indian Restaurant menus. The Ginger lamb was an example and was excellent. Service was a bit over attentive as we were asked by several different staff whether we liked the food. Premises were over air-conditioned to the extent that even the food got cold. Access to premises not safe with marble steps that were perilous after rain.

Simply superb dinner. Probably the best Indian restaurant in Singapore. The Cod Tikka was out of this world and we ordered it two times. Even the vegetarian dishes was so nice and we finished every bit of them.

Great experience. Nice ambient, very good food, good service. Chef Mural is very elegantly playing with the Indian flavours and is getting the best out of them. I would highly recommend this restaurant to an Indian food lover.

Food was very good. However, the wait for the food was fairly long. The restaurant should consider measures to speed up the service so that customers are not kept waiting unnecessarily long for food, especially when they are hungry. Waiting should not exceed 20 minutes.

The service and the environment is impeccable. The taste of the food has been reformed to cater the preferences of the Singeporean. Everything is within expectation except that the odor of the lamb is a little bit heavy. Overall its a good experience.

The service was excellent. We all selected tasting menus. The food was unimaginative and uninspiring but well cooked and flavoured. The interiors look a bit dated and the lighting is too dim. I think we walked away thinking that this was a slightly better than average North Indian restaurant with an overpriced menu.

Excellent food, great service, thoughtful staff. It was my wife's birthday and once they got to know about it also arranged for a surprise cake. Also made me aware of a discount on my card.

This restaurant is located in a beautiful colonial building. The food was very delicious, good choice of set menus, nice selection of wines and service very quick attentive. I wish they had an alfresco seating to soak in the atmosphere.

The food was great, all the spices and flavours hit the spot. Chef was extremely nice and came out to greet every table to see how the experience was. Staff are nice. Good value for 1 Michelin star.

The athmosphere and service was good. Some of the food was excellent (like the almond soup and salmon) and some we would state as average indian food (like the tandoori chicken we thought was nothing special).

We went on a Saturday afternoon and had the buffet. Spread wasn't fantastic but for that price and place it is still reasonable. We enjoyed the food especially the fresh naan. Ambience and service was good.

A upmarket Indian restaurant that needs little introduction. Great ambience, elegant surroundings in a colonial bungalow and amazing food that keeps you returning. What more can you ask for?

Not a very large spread for the buffet but all dishes were good. Alu Tikki Chaat and tomato soup were a hit. Butter chicken was also nice. Strawberry mousse also.
