Do you like Indian food? Well there are plenty of great, affordable authentic ones in Singapore, but this particular place seems to stands out when it comes to choosing a delicious one. Banana Leaf is located in Little India, quite known to locals so your taxi/Uber driver should take you to the right place. The restaurant is actually a food court kind of place, where there are more than one stalls, but you can order your food at your table. The place is humble but also charming in its own way.

First thing that they serve was the Pappadum/Indian crackers. Thinly crispy light and fragrant too. Yum!


Don’t be surprise to find that you don’t use plate for eating here. Instead, they use non other than Banana Leaves. What a unique way to experience authentic Indian cuisine.
