1. Shah Maharani

Shahi Maharani serves up North Indian cuisine, which is more centred on meat and dairy products. The Indian buffet includes things like kebabs, bread, and various meats, all served warm from the tandoor. 

For the unfamiliar, a tandoor is a clay or metal oven that has a cylinder shape. It can be used to cook bread by laying the dough on the sides of the oven, or inserting skewered meat. Food that’s cooked within a tandoor is smoked naturally from the meat fat dripping onto the hot coals, and temperatures can reach up to 450°C. 

Chaat station

Shahi Maharani has a chaat station, also referred to as a salad station for savoury food. Here, you can mix all sorts of condiments together to create your own unique dish. Alternatively, you can stick to what’s tried and tested, and go for street snacks such as dahi puri, which is a crispy pastry skin filled with chickpeas/mashed potatoes, yoghurt, chutney, and spices.

2. Sitara Restaurant

Sitara Restaurant has one of the cheapest Indian buffets in Singapore. The restaurant features a decent array of items on their North Indian buffet menu, including freshly baked naans and rotis, as well as freshly-made chapati. 

While you probably won’t find much meat here, there are several gravies and curries that you can choose from to get your protein fix. Moong dal, for instance, is a thick yellow mung bean curry that is mildly savoury. If you prefer something with more flavour, go for the palak paneer, which is a cottage cheese and spinach gravy that will linger on your tongue long after you’re done with it.
