Singh’s Cafe is an excellent choice for those who want to enjoy Indian cuisine in Wellesley

Singh’s Cafe is an Indian restaurant located at 312 Washington St, Wellesley, across from Holy Spirit Catholic church. It is predominantly known for serving Punjabi cuisine, but it also offers a diverse range of other dishes such as momos (Nepali) and kebabs (Middle Eastern). 

Upon arriving, it is easy to find the entrance with a big sign saying “Singh’s Cafe.” The restaurant is located in the basement, and you will be greeted by two Hindu statues as you enter. During my visit on a Sunday afternoon, the restaurant was full with customers, and only a few tables were left.  

The lunch buffet option is a great choice for people who want to try Indian food but are unsure of what to order. The buffet, which is open from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM, is priced $16.95 on weekdays and $17.95 on weekends. The buffet includes approximately eight main entrees along with a variety of sauces, soups, salads, and desserts. You have the option of choosing between original Naan and Garlic Naan. You may also order dishes from their menu instead of the buffet if you prefer. 

I highly recommend trying the Chicken Tikka Masala, a traditional Indian dish consisting of roasted chicken with creamy and spicy sauce. The dish had a complex taste with all the spices, but it was very delicious, even for my family members who are unfamiliar with Indian cuisine. I recommend trying it with Naan bread.

The Chicken Tandoori, on the other hand, was a bit dry, but I enjoyed the flavorful taste of the spices. Unlike the Chicken Tikka Masala, it was more tangy and smoky, and its bright color is sure to catch your attention. The Punjabi Kadhi Pakora, a dish made with vegetables, was not my favorite, but it would be an excellent dish for vegetarians.

Lastly, I tried the Rasgulla (white) and Gulab Jamun (brown). They are traditional Indian ball-shaped desserts dipped in sugar syrup. Both were very sweet with a spongy texture. 

Also, it was great that there was a sign indicating any potential allergens or dietary restrictions for every dish at the buffet. Additionally, the restaurant has a well-organized website ( that allows customers to view the menu or order online. 

Overall, Singh’s Cafe is an excellent restaurant to enjoy Indian cuisine in Wellesley. With its warm and welcoming atmosphere and delicious dishes, it is a must-visit for those seeking to indulge in Indian flavors.
