Food was quite good, but what I would expect from any Indian restaurant. Very spacious and air conditioned. Didn't like ordering on an iPad.

I went to Muthu's Curry for lunch today with my colleague. We ordered white rice (which came with brinjal and cabbage), chicken tikka, squid (squid sambal), tiger prawns, and butter chicken, and for dessert, we had home-made kulfi and masala tea.

It seemed like a posh restaurant with a nice ambience. The lighting was adequate, and the food was well displayed.

As for the food, I was dismayed on many counts.

First the vegetables that came with the rice were cabbage and brinjal. I would expect this from a coffee shop down the road but not from a restaurant that is trying to project a premium image.

Secondly the brinjal tasted sweet. The waiter told me they added sugar. If you are genuinely serving Indian food, there is no need to add sugar. What is important is the taste of the spices in the food and not sugar.

The chicken tikka was also sweet and tasted more like barbequed chicken pieces.

The home-made mango kulfi was too sweet for our liking. We could not taste the cardamom because the taste and sweetness of the mango was overpowering.

Finally, the masala tea was lukewarm and we could hardly taste the spices.

The rest of the food was nothing to brag about.

Other than that, the waiters are couteous and helpful. That made the experience pleasant. However, I will think twice about going back.

This is a great place to meet up with friends for dinner the staff are very friendly and helpful but the service is all over the place.
The restaurant was not that busy when we arrived and we waited ages for our drinks,we had to ask for more menus as we had one between 6 of us.The staff use a tablet to order everything,but although they are very sweet they seem rather vacant and disorganized.
The food is very good,but we felt the portions were very small and ended up ordering way more dishes than we would usually do when we go for a curry together.

Great courteous service. Waiter even chatted and explained the dishes to us. Fish head curry was delicious, however one fish head for 4pax wasn't sufficient, a whole lot of gravy but not fish. Aloo pratha was good and so was the Dum Chicken Bryani. Enjoyed the meal.
