Tuck into a hot bowl of chicken curry with roti jala and appreciate the wonderful mixture of spices.

In 1989, Na Na Homemade Curry first opened in Marina South. Since then, it has made a name for itself and now has four locations throughout Singapore to appease our appetite for curry. The vibrant and fragrant chicken curry is just one of the restaurant’s gems; mutton, fish head, and vegetable curries are also available.

Key ServicesIndian restaurant
Phone (+65) 96751961
Operating Hours9am – 8pm (Mon – Fri)

If you’re a fan of North Indian food, Copper Chimney is the place to go. It has a large range of foods to select from within Little India’s boundaries. Chicken curry can be enjoyed with tantalizing tandoori kebabs and tikkas, or soft and puffy naan.

Key Differentiators

  • Genuine experience of North Indian and Indian Chinese food
  • Ten minutes away from the Indian Heritage Centre for tourists
  • Award-winning restaurant

Customer Testimonial

Authentic Indian food. Best thing I like over here is that the cooking oil is so light that you don’t feel heavy at the end of the meal like one does in rest of the indian restaurants in town. I really hope they continue to maintain it. Can’t wait to come back again.

Operating HoursDaily: 8AM–8PM

Of course, we couldn’t ignore the well-known franchise Toast Box. While some may feel it’s too commercialized, they ultimately succeed in making curry chicken available to everyone. Plus, we simply couldn’t think of a more convenient place to satisfy that curry fix than with over 70 locations throughout the country.

Finally, the indulgent bowl deserves some recognition since it makes curry-loving easy. We know we’re covered when it comes to Toast Box outlets because they can usually be found in almost every mall.

Key Differentiators

  • Nostalgic reflection of the coffee shops from the 60s
  • Typical breakfast
  • Enjoy the comforts of good coffee and toast

Customer Testimonial

Consistent quality everywhere, and the multi-tasking cashier, ‘kopi-boy’ was super friendly! Also tried the sweet tau sar piah for the first time, and it’s surprisingly good!

Old Chang Kee is well-known for its curry puffs. Curry Times is a dine-in restaurant opened by a local business that has five locations in Singapore.

The Signature Curry Chicken comes with rice, noodles, or prata as a side dish. It emphasizes on the popular curry flavor and has a higher spice to coconut ratio than other curries. In addition, the serving was substantial, including plenty of chicken and potatoes.

For those who prefer a less lemak curry, this fulfills the bill. The cost is a touch more than street food prices, but it’s definitely worth getting when you’re craving some great old chicken curry.

Key Differentiators

  • The golden age of curry
  • Crowd favorite
  • Substantial servings

Customer Testimonial

Best curry chicken in Singapore.

The menu is so extensive that we had troubles choosing what we wanted! We settled for the classic curry chicken which doesn’t disappoint. The portions are very generous. It goes very well with plain white rice, bread and even roti prata.

Overall a very satisfying meal and would come back over and over again.

Hai Nan Hometown Curry is no stranger to the press, with plaques on display around its stall. The Ghim Moh Market and Food Centre’s little corner store is well-known for its numerous curry preparations using various meats.

This curry was mild in flavor and had a touch of coconut milk. Hai Nan Hometown Curry was really generous with their chicken, leaving you full and happy. It also has a soft, sweet bun for combination with the curry.

Nice curry and at affordable and reasonable pricing. There is a $2.8 set B value meal available too.

Address682 Hougang Avenue 4, Singapore 530682.
Operating HoursWeekdays: 10 AM to 7 PM

Here’s one that isn’t well-known and discovered by the crowd yet. Tan Koon Curry Rice at Hougang may appear to be a run-of-the-mill fan shop, but don’t be fooled by its modest storefront. They have a fantastic curry that is well worth noting.

Their Rice With Curry Chicken is a simple and quick way to make a meal. What’s perfect for Tan Koon Curry Rice’s menu is its selection of many side dishes. They also have other meat and vegetable entrees, and a bowl of this delicious sauce with rice will surely keep you company!

Key Differentiators

  • Not yet discovered by the crowd
  • Selection of side dishes
  • Great sauce
