All the food including soup and drinks were great, very flavorful and satisfying! The service was great either. Very attentive and friendly staff. Highly recommended! Will definitely come back again.

Had the best crab rasam, peppery and served piping hot. The mutton chukka was well seasoned and absolutely delicious, not sitting in a pool of oil like how they serve it in other restaurants. Mango bits in the mango fish curry were bursting with curry flavours. Vendakai masala was perfectly cooked with a light crunch. Fish cutlets were abit over fried but tasty and not soaked in oil. Bru coffee was strong and a perfect end to a wonderful lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and left without a heavy greasy feel in our tummy at the end of it. Will definitely be back: the food is top notch, the restaurant clean and cozy, the friendly and attentive service was much appreciated.

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!. Location, taste, ambience, and whatever was simply excellent. We dined for dinner. Mutton briyani was worth for its light brownish color which is natural when mutton is cooked with rice. 'Nellai chilli chicken' was ultimate. Perfectly cooked juicy chicken pieces. 'Mutton kola urundai' was soft and fluffy. Mint chutney was good. The doodles on wall was interesting. We went on tuesday evening, and there was q. People who know the taste know its worth waiting!

Very good chettinad food. A bit spicy but still good. Highly recommend the mutton soup, mutton sukha, and chicken kothu. The pistachio and mango kulfi was also good. Reasonably priced. They don't take reservations, only walk-ins

Delightful experience with very authentic South Indian tasting food. Such a refreshing expericne compared to all the other restaurants in Singapore. Service is fast, staff are friendly. However do note you will end up waiting for quite sometime to get in during lunch hours. They sincerely need to enable a dinning time limit. So many customers just sitting and having coffee while the restaurant has to turn away other guests..

Honest review: This is the best South Indian or Tamil food (to be specific) restaurant serving non-vegetarian food in Singapore. I don’t think I’ve found anything better. Service - 9 | Ambience - 7 | Food - 10 The price point is reasonable for the taste and service. The food is super tasty, it is homely and not too oily. The service is quick, doesn’t take too long. The taste is super authentic which I really like! There are a lot of restaurants but the one’s serving food where meat is tender and tasty are few. I would highly recommend this.

I was craving the taste of seafood in Chennai and came here. Got my cravings satisfied! The dishes are REALLY spicy, authentic. I went for lowest level of spiciness but still found my self sniffling. All the gravy is so good and goes so well with white rice

A hidden gem in Little India for authentic Tamil Food and my Tamil neighbor and friends brought us there for dinner. Their spice mix for the dishes are perfect for each dish and I love their pepper lamb and chicken very much that we ordered a second serving. Overall, it's a good Tamil food experience 👍

If ever there are 10 ⭐️ I will never ever hesitate to give 10 ⭐️. It’s my second visit to Machan’s Kitchen. The food are simply delicious & full filling. Literally I was in empty stomach from yesterday(23/7) night so that I could eat full in Machan’s Kitchen. I’m sure I’m gonna patronise Machan’s after this. Every single items are so authentic and awesome. Can’t wait for next visit. Wish you all the good luck from universe for your business & success ♥️

Lovely place for some nice South Indian food. I couldn’t pick any single dish as they were all tasty. Loved the sweet and salty lime juice as well. Definitely worth a visit.

Had a craving for South Indian food so I came here. Hands down one of the best restaurants in the little India area. The ample use of curry leaves and coconut in the curries really show that Indian food is more than just being spicy. Of course, if you would like a spicy kick, order the karaikudi chicken masala. The parottas, although they look small are filling and flaky. Overall a really good experience, friendly servers, quick service and delicious food.

1st visit on 4th week of Oct 2023. We were recommended by Indian friend to try the this restaurant. Actually craving for nasi briyani but when served, the taste totally different from North India briyani. It was spicy taste only, no fried onions and tumeric fragrance.. we cannot get use to it. Sorry to say only alacart rice cost $7.50, with only spicy taste, is not worth to eat. Other dishes, masala lady fingers and chicken tasted normal. Fish with mango sauce tasted so so, served with a inner hidden shallow container with only few pcs of fish meat also not worth to eat.. I think the only best dishes go to the 6 pcs grill prawns but pricy..

The crab rasam was awesome. Delish vegetarian meals especially the spicy sour curry(Vatthe kolumbe). Must try. The pepper mutton, onion eggs and lollipops chicken was alright.

These dishes got me! The bro and sis were so kind. They will introduce and suggest the best unique dishes which suit you. The chilli level is adjustable. The most important is a reasonable price! I only spend 40+, not like other restaurants on this street, around 70+

My 4th time here with friends. Recommended by a Indian colleague as a place for quality food. We like the spiciness and friendly service from the staff. You can have them to make recommendations if you do not know what to order.

Food: Love their chilli paneer and mutton biryani. Can skip masala thosai (not bad, but Anjappar next door’s beat it) Must order their tea too! It has a perfect balance of tea and milk flavour. Will definitely come back and try other goods!

Amazing place for South Indian food. Their tawa fish fry is one of the best I have had. Very reasonably priced.

Been here a few times already. Great food but abit pricey. Love the mutton ribs and masala tea. Went on a lunchtime weekend this time and both units were crowded. So come early if you want a seat on a weekend.
