Deepavali Celebration in Singapore: Food Guide

Travel Singapore Deepaval... /October 2017

Deepavali celebration is in a few days. Whether you are celebrating Deepavali or not, we've selected three Indian restaurants, that will surely put you in a festive mood. 


1. Earl of Hindh

Earl of Hindh is a perfect choice for a day out with the family. When you first entered through the full glass panel doors, the restaurant has a perfect balance of modern and classical colonial feel. We went during dinner time; the restaurant's dim-lit ambiance and dark wood furniture immediately transported us away from the modern and minimalist Singapore.

The extensive menu is a mixture of both traditional and modern Indian dish. The signature dish, Kakori Kebab was packed with various spices and chargrilled to perfection.Their fragrant mutton biryani has a generous serving of tender mutton that falls apart effortlessly.

Coupled with its scenic view of the Quayside Isle dock, this restaurant would be a perfect half-a-day getaway for your family and friends. Despite its slightly steeper price, the delightful dish and the scenic view make every single buck worth it!

Sentosa can be hard to access, call us to rent car for extra comfort and convenience. 


31 Ocean Way, #01-16 Quayside Isle, Singapore 098375


05:00 PM to 10:30 PM (Mon-Thu)

12:00 PM to 10:30 PM (Fri-Sun)


2. Song of India

A Michelin starred restaurant, Song of India is suitable if you are looking to experience Indian fine dining. 

Located at one of the historic colonial-era bungalows at Scotts road, the restaurant has a majestic exterior that might be intimidating to some. As you walk in, the naturally-lit dining hall with its velvet chairs and regal tablewares will make you feel like a royalty. However, despite its reputation and regal feel, Song of India offers an affordable lunch buffet.

With only $36.50+, you will be able to enjoy the flavorful buffet at a one-starred Michelin restaurant! The dishes are impressive. Leave it to Chef Manjunath Mural to spice up humble ingredients into something spectacular. As it offers great value for money, expect a crowd during lunch-time at Song of India.

With the unexpected weather changes these days, we suggest you take your car and park for free at Song of India. Need a car? Check out our car leasing solution!

3. Tandoor

Another alternative this year is to go for a buffet at Tandoor at Holiday Inn Orchard, Singapore. With the traditional beliefs that eating Vegetarian meals during Deepavali brings good luck, Tandoor offers a greater variety of Vegetarian dishes in their buffet spread. Check out their buffet menu this year!

The best part about this Deepavali buffet is the extensive dessert bar of traditional sweets! As a Deepavali celebration is not complete without the various traditional sweets, Tandoor would be the best choice if you'd like to get an extensive sampler of all the delicacies. 

The exclusive buffet menu is only available from 15-18 October 2017. 


11 Cavenagh Road, Singapore 229616


12:00 PM to 02:30 PM (Lunch, All Day)
