Having opened its doors in 1947, Komala Vilas, one of Singapore’s oldest Indian Vegetarian Restaurant, has become a household name. Komala Vilas, along with its neighbouring sweet shop selling traditional Indian sweets and snacks, is one of the biggest mainstays of Little India.
As a tribute and nod to its long legacy in Singapore, Singapore’s Prime Minister Mr Lee Hsien Loong shared a meal at Komala Vilas with India’s Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi on Nov 23, 2015.
Established in 1947 by our founder, Mr Murugiah Rajoo, who came to Singapore from his native Tamil Nadu in India, Komala Vilas continues to be a family run business.
In keeping with time-honored traditions in Tanjore District, Tamil Nadu, Mr. Rajoo started serving meals on fresh banana leaves. After more than 70 years, we continue to uphold these and his original recipes, serving both South and Indian Vegetarian meals at three locations at reasonable prices.
Komala Vilas is a proud bearer of the Singapore’s Heritage Brands and listed as one of the Places to Visit and Eat by the Singapore Tourism and Singapore Heritage Boards.
Today, Komala Vilas conjures fond memories of delicious dosais, sumptuous thali meals and aromatic South Indian coffee among our patrons. Singaporeans, Indians, tourists and vegetarians around the world continue to seek out Komala Vilas.
