Yantra has been around for more than half a decade in Singapore, tucked away at a cozy corner of Tanglin Mall.
The food here was fantasic coupled with fine dining ambiance and diligent service, I enjoyed the overall experience here.
Chef Asif Iqbal – a certified professional chef who has held stints at The Taj Group of Hotels, The Park Hotels, and also served as the executive chef for upscale fine dining restaurants based in Dubai and Hong Kong before conquering Singapore , starting with Yantra’s.
Yantra is presenting back-to-basics Indian cuisine, and reinventing some of the Indian dishes from the kitchen helmed by Chef Asif.
His creation to note would be Chicken Tikka Alphonso Salad, Broccoli Cheddar Tikki, Tandoori Spiked Oysters with Chilli ice-cream, Blue soft shell crabs in Tellicherry black pepper and Gorgonzola Naan, these are only a few of his novice dishes – intrigued? I certainly am!
Soma the bar offers Ladies Night S$25++ per person every Friday and Saturday from 6.30pm – 9pm indulging the ladies with free flow of Prosecco.
This was such a fun dish, delicious, full of flavour and you would not miss the meat.
I liked the fragrance of the well balanced spices and no heat experienced at all.
The tender chicken was fabulous.
A succulent chargrilled dish soaked up the well balanced spice mix.
Accompanying minty yoghurt dip smoothed out the overall palette.
This dish reminded me of local stuffed tau pok (fried beancurd). Except that it was paneer (Indian cottage cheese) layers coated thinly with sweet spice mix, chargrilled to light smokiness and sandwiched with pepper and chopped walnut.
The lamb chunks were so soft and extremely appetising given the ultra tasty black pepper stir fried treatment.
I would love to be back for this dish.
Do not worry, there is no funky grilled smell pouring out from this station at all.
It was an eye-opening seeing the tandoor chef at work.
Pan seared halibut fillets smothered in healthy spinach sauce brought out a mild tasty combination.
I had to cut the tasting short as I needed leave for an emergency family call.
A pity that I missed out the rest of the main courses.
Well, I have planned to return for their buffet lunch at some stage.
You will be glad to know Yantra offers exceptionally valued lunch buffet over quality servings…
