Gayatri, Race Course Road, Singapore

After a very hot and steamy morning walking around Singapore’s Muslim Quarter at Kampong Glam and then Little India a quick TripAdvisor search pointed me to a close by Indian restaurant called Gayatri.

Gayatri is a largish restaurant on Race Course Road, not too far from the Mustafa Centre or Little India MRT station.

I got there earlyish at around 11:30am but I wasn’t the first there.

The traditional paper menu that was at the door was replaced inside by a Samsung tablet which was not overly intuitive to use, and in fact I had to resort to asking the waitress to order for me.

I ordered a Chicken 65 and Butter Chicken, which turned out to be quite decent in size, along with a Garlic Naan. My order came out very quickly which make me think that some of the food is prepared in advance and served out of a bain-marie rather than cooked fresh for each order.

Taste wise the meal was quite good but could have been a little more spicy.

All that said, there’s a plethora of good food options in the area, so next time I think I’ll try another restaurant.
