DABBAWALLA @ Robertson Quay

Hip yet traditional, Modern yet authentic – Dabbawalla, our Mumbai inspired restaurant is high on energy and the bold flavours that typify the food of Mumbai. Located next to the Singapore River, in the tony Robertson Quay area, the Dabbawalla, with its distinct Mumbai inspired ambience, specially concocted cocktail and street food menu is a foodie’s experience like no other in Singapore.



The Dabbawalla team is renowned as much for making guests feel extraordinarily special and welcome as it is for its depth of knowledge about Indian cuisine and beverages. The belief and culture of the team is to ensure that every guest is treated as if he has come to dine in an Indian home. The warmth, professionalism, enthusiasm and panache of the team ensures that every dining experience is a truly memorable one.
