Vegetarian Friendly Meter – 4.5/5
If you’re looking for a special Diwali meal this weekend, then what better place to go to than The Song of India. One of the most popular fine dining Indian restaurants in Singapore, TSOI recently became Southeast Asia’s only Indian restaurant to receive a Michelin Star. The restaurant is headed by Executive Chef Manjunath Mural who offers a new take on modern Indian cuisine.
With its opulent interiors, lavish décor, luxurious table settings and a lovely ambience, The Song of India offers the perfect venue for a fine celebratory meal over this Diwali weekend – you can choose to go for a family meal on Sunday or a romantic dinner for two on Saturday or Sunday.
With Sundays being Family Day at SOI, head over with your kids for a lovely Diwali lunch. At 39.90++ per pax, the specially created Gourmet Menu is value for money, more so since kids under 12 dine free with 2 paying adults, giving you an amazing value proposition for a quality meal.
The Sunday lunch menu varies every week and there is no dearth of vegetarian dishes. From vegetarian kebabs to piping hot soup and a variety of salads at the Salad Bar, there are options aplenty even before you move on to the mains. There is even a live counter that serves different dishes every Sunday. The mains always comprise of a good selection of vegetarian dishes as well – dishes like Veg Biryani, Dal Pachranga, Palak Paneer, Baigan Tomato Masala, Herb Vegetables with sides like Raita and Papads. I especially love chef Mural’s desserts and sweets as they are flavourful and always just the right amount of sweet. Some of my personal favourites are Dry Fruit Seviyan Kheer – a dessert made from vermicelli and milk, and Doodhi ka Halwa – a dessert made from bottle gourd.
Also on offer currently is the Deepavali Tasting Menu (SGD 79+), which has been designed by the master chef, specially for this occasion. The 4-course meal comprises of Starters, Soup, Mains and Desserts and is available over the Diwali weekend. Diners will get to taste dishes like Mangoori Tokri Chaat (crispy lentil dumplings in a tangy sauce), Badam ka Shorba (a velvety soup of lentils and almonds), Paneer Khada Masala (cottage cheese with hand pounded spices), Hirva Masala Bhaaji (mix vegetables in a green coconut curry), Kurkuri Nadru (crispy fried lotus rings), Kofta Curry (spinach and cheese dumplings in a smoked tomato sauce) just to name a few. Dishes will be served with the usual accompaniments of naans and pulao rice and followed by desserts and TSOI’s famous mithais (sweets).
Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it? So Happy Diwali and Happy Feasting!
