Located at Dempsey Road’s former Civil Service Club, Samy’s Curry has been dishing up delicious South Indian food since the 1950s. Originally at Tank Road, it moved to Pearl Hill and then to its current location in the early 1980s. This stalwart was founded by the late Mr M Veerasamy, who created the restaurant’s signature dishes such as chicken masala, fish cutlet and Mysore mutton. Another speciality is the fiery fish head curry. Rice and vegetarian accompaniments are served on large banana leaves. In 1982, Mr Veerasamy’s son Mr Maheyndran took over the restaurant.
