This is probably the most popular stall in Northpoint Food Court. It is the Indian Stall called ‘Shami Banana Leaf Delights’, quite a mouthful isn’t it.
There is a queue at the stall. With about 3 servers, I waited about 5-10minutes. And the food you get is warm, not cold due to the constant crowd. Hence, most items should be quite fresh in the sense that it is fresh piping warm from the kitchen behind.
This set cost $6.00. Chicken, 2 pieces of crackers, bean sprouts (your choice of vegetables) and a huge portion of rice.. It used to cost only $4.50… but well inflation again.. They should just cut down on the amount of rice they give and lower the price. Many people especially 2 females will tend to share just 1 plate of this, because the portion of rice is really alot. Looks delicious right! The rice with curry was nice, every single grain of rice was well cooked.
Crackers were surprising still warm (normally its not warm) and was crispy. Bean sprouts cooked just nice with a crunchy taste. It was not overcooked and certainty did not taste under cook (raw taste).
Look at this flaming red piece of chicken. Do not worry, it is not spicy. I wish it was at least a little spicy. Its just the colouring. Might look scary, but actually its delicious. The meat is soft and tender, easy to eat.
But something to note, please rinse your mouth after eating this. Shall spare the details, you will know why when you rinse.
Overall, this should be one of the best stall in Northpoint Food Court. Price is on the higher end but portions are generous. You are likely to be full, loaded with calories and carbos after eating the rice.
