Whichever it may be, at Podi and Poriyal, we take you on a trip down memory lane with you. Because we believe that good food should be shared; food that offers nourishment, not just for the body, but also for the soul, leaving you with a lasting impression of warmth and love -an impression you will remember for a long time to come. While we aim to become one of the best South Indian restaurants in Singapore, our primary motivation always lies in serving the most authentic and tasty vegetarian fare to our patrons.
