Not the best supper place
I stay in the vicinity, and Ameen Makan House is basically one of the very few options I have for supper if I don't want to travel far. I would have to say that Ameen Makan House is at best decent, but nothing much to rave about.
I usually come here for prata and other occasional Indian food.The prata isn't exactly cripsy and it definitely isn't the best prata around, but they're decent enough to have. My biggest gripe is probably with their curry - I don't really fancy it. They aren't the best tasting ones around and they are sometimes way too diluted. I've also tried their beehoon goreng, which didn't impress.
If you're eating at the shop, it's usually extremely crowded and it can get a little stuffy. It's usually swarmed with (NUS) students and your order takes pretty long (usually 25mins) to come. Not worth the wait, if you ask me, but there isn't really any other supper options around.
The food at Ameen is decent, but not fantastic. My 2 cents worth - come here if you're in the vicinity, but don't make a special trip down.
Awesome supper and dinner food!
This is probably a place which most NUS students have probably heard about, and likely to have gone to with a large group of friends for supper/dinner. Located just a short walk away from Sheares & Temasek Hall, many have gone there to satisfy their late night supper cravings.
My personal favourites are the Butter Chicken, with its creamy and buttery sauce and tingling spices. And with this you should also order at least a piece of naan with it, where you can dip the naan into the Butter Chicken and slurp it. I was told that the serving size for the Butter Chicken was meant for 2 people, but I usually order one for myself and have no problems finishing it right down to the last drop. Other items on the menu worth checking out are the iced Teh Cino (lots of milk!) & Cheese Fries with generous dollops of cheese.
If you are eating in-house, it might get slightly warm and stuffy despite all the fans. The ventilation is also slightly poor, and may leave a slight smell on you after you have been there for some time.
They also deliver to nearby areas, though I am not too sure of the exact scope of where they do deliver. Delivery and waiting times are often long due to the high demand from NUS students who frequently order from this eatery. And do take note that the only mode of payment accepted is cash if you order through their delivery service.
I love its soft naan and it complements well with the curry dishes and butter chicken. This place serves good fried rice as well. Nevertheless the fried rice is quite salty. Serving size is not bad, the butter chicken with a side order of naan is good for 2. Of course a large eater can finish it as well.
The milkshakes are quite popular along with the teh chino. There's also a milo godzilla which has whipped cream on top. This place is very badly ventilated so be prepared to leave smelling like the place.
