7. Khansama Tandoori Restaurant
Located up a narrow staircase in the middle of bustling Serangoon Road in the heart of Little India, this little gem continually churns out fantastic-tasting, great value curries.

Meat lovers can't go wrong with a Mutton Lababdar with its creamy tomato gravy, or everyone's favourite -- Chicken Tikka Masala. Vegetarians won't be disappointed here either -- the Gobi Manchurian -- cauliflower in a spicy sweet and sour sauce should not be missed, nor should the Bindi Masala cooked with tomatoes and spices.

In addition to Fish head Curry, Muthu's specialises in Southern Indian favourites, although the open tandoor in the heart of the restaurant churns out good quality tandoori specialties such as kebabs and freshly prepared naan breads.
