Anyone heard of this indian VEGETARIAN restaurant at Peninsula Plaza? Basically, you pay whatever amount you think it's appropriate after your meal...sounds cool eh.

I'm thinking of going there this friday night or saturday afternoon. But I need to gain more information first, anyone has any idea?

Drop me a line, msn at solarv2000@hotmail.com or call me at 8183 6758

Cheers

The one I've posted is not in Peninsular but has the concept solarv mentioned so I posted it anyway. :)

Interesting to see Komala's nutritional information on their site; thanks for posting!

Let me amend some information here.

Komala's is at Penisula Plaza. Annalaxmi is at Peninula Hotel. :D

Annalaxmi is "pay what you feel". Komala's is menu and fixed price based.

Annalaxmi is typically buffet food.

Komala's is snacks, meals etc.

Annalaxmi is like a restaurant. Komala's is more like "let me eat and get out of here fast".

Annalaxmi can be used for a first date. Komala's can be used for 10th date. :D :D (No! I have never done something like that, so dont go chucking rocks at me).

Annalaxmi is run by volunteers some of whom are professionals with day jobs. Komala's has staff on their rolls.

Annalaxmi is part of a charitable organization and connected to the cultural organization (not sure of which). Komala's belongs to a family who run all outlets in Singapore.

That's it! I cant go anymore.

Lots, solarv! Have a walk down Racecourse Road in Little India.

There's also a very reasonably-priced one in Tekka Mall. If I can recall the name I will post again.

No - not many of those around. For goodness sake, if you're desperate for Indian food, you'll just have to open your wallet.
