This Komala Vilas is not to be confused with the Komala’s fast food restaurant. Personally, I much prefer this Komala as I find it gives me better value for my money.
If you want to have the meals set, you should go to Level 2. If not, you should try to find a place at Level 1. I’m usually found at Level 1 and you find that sometimes you have to share your table with a stranger. This place is quite popular with tourists, so I guess that’s why they have the menu showing pictures of the food all over the walls. It’s easy for us to order. 😀
Komala Vilas is one of a plethora of small, casual eating places in the ethnic quarter of Little India, serving up cheap, filling and delicious Indian food in a fast-food setting. The vegetarian menu provides a whole traditional South Indian meal, with favorites such as the dosai, a vegetable-filled crêpe, and thali, a complete meal comprising rice, lentils and a selection of curries, all served on a banana leaf. A great place for breakfast, open from 0700. No credit cards.
I always love their paper dosai (S$2.20 only!) (see the picture above). A must try is also their special tea/coffee which comes in a small metal “urn” and a small bowl. You are supposed to pour the tea/coffee from the “urn” into the small bowl and then back into the “urn”. This is to cool the tea/coffee so that you can sip safely without burning your tongue.
