IMAM Banana Leaf Restaurant
Conveniently located right infront of Kallang MRT, is IMAM Banana Leaf restaurant. And it opens 24/7.
The personal favorite is the Mutton curry briyani. The chunky bits of succulent mutton with moderately spicy curry a match with their slightly dry briyani rice.
(Another special mention is their mutton mutarbak)
