I know they have been around for a very long time.  This company specializes in food & fruits from Geylang.  Yes, they do deliver durian! and even rambutan, lychee & longans! Wow! They even have bubble tea for those who have the craving for it. 

And fear not! They have food from Chinese to Malay to Indian to vegetarian.  If you’re tired of ordering tingkat dinner, you might want to try their set dinner too.

If the order is less than S$15, an additional charge of S$2 will be imposed.

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.

 Ok, this is an Indian vegetarian restaurant but before you dismiss it as another Indian restaurant, read again.  In this restaurant, their motto is “Eat what you want and give as you feel”.  This means that you can eat as much as you want (provided you finish every morsel that you order otherwise you sin?) and you pay whatever amount you feel.  For e.g. you finish 10 plates of food and you feel like you should pay only S$1 (shame on you if you do that), you can be sure that you won’t be hounded by the police.

So if you feel like having Indian vegetarian food, why not pop into this restaurant and experience dining in a different way?

They also have an outlet at Amoy Street with slightly different opening hours.  Check their website for details.

Indulge in a lavish banquet that features an attractive spread of dishes, mostly handmade, for its buffet lunches and dinners. Savour the flavours of the wide range of Taiwanese vegetarian cuisine, which amazingly, remains creative and unique despite its variety. Make a pit stop at their “Dian Xin” Corner and revel in a sumptuous spread of “Dianxin” in Hong Kong, Taiwanese and Japanese styles. Don’t miss their weekend “eat-all-you-can” buffet lunches and dinners comprising of over 100 delicious varieties of cooked food. For those who prefer the homely aroma of wholesome soups, they would appreciate the painstakingly prepared stewed herbal soups. A bonus is that food is prepared avoiding deep frying methods, perfect for the health-conscious.

There is also an ice-cream station to which you can help yourself to unlimited servings. Free-flow beverages are also self-service. Available are a variety of soda, hot coffee, tea, and Chinese tea.

For a non-vegetarian like me, I truly enjoyed the cuisine that they served here. It’s so tasty you wouldn’t believe it’s vegetarian. Personally, I really love their dianxin. A die-die must try would be their soup in puff  pastry. Be fast… once the bowls of soup leave the kitchen, they disappear in a blink of an eye. Oh, you should also try their Japanese handroll.  Yummy!
