When I was young, my mother used to buy stacks of pratas on Sunday, and I would tear into them, still hot, with my hands. I could eat 4 or 5 at each time. For this entry, we ate at least 72 pratas, not counting our second and third visits to some stalls. A South Indian staple, dough is stretched, flipped, and panfried till it is crispy outside and fluffy inside. The curry must be loaded with spices.
There are too many flavors–durian, mushroom, cheese, etc–so we compared only the classic kosong (plain) and telor (egg), although we sometimes ordered additional flavors. While some stalls may give pratas already cooked for customers who tabao, we should get hot pratas made upon ordering since we were makan-ing there. The difference between pre-prepared and a la minute pratas is vast and palpable. In ascending order:

T: +65 6459 5670
Plain: Served piping hot. So crispy and so fluffy. $1. 8.5/10
Egg: WOW. Just WOW. Slightly charred to give a nice aroma, but not overly charred to give cancer. Thick, still fluffy inside, and the crust has a biscuit-like texture. $1.70. 9/10
Curry: From the piquant and sour taste, should be fish curry. Could be spicier, thicker, hotter (as in both temperature and taste-wise). Really a pity about the curry. 6.5/10
Pros: Very innovative. I went after trying their innovative Egg Benedict prata with curry-infused hollandise at Ultimate Hawker Fest–was very impressed by them. Prata made upon ordering. Air con.

T: +65 6966 0832
M-F 9am-9pm, Sat-Sun 8am-8pm, PH 8am-5pm

Curry: Chinese-style chicken curry with enough spice. 8/10
Pros: Enough seats.

why no RK house
Sorry i missed that one out in my research.
You’d be surprised that #2 Curry Cafe is actually NTUC prata LOL
OMG I think so too!
Ghim Moh egg prata is very good when eaten fresh off the stove (best time to order is when there is queue on weekend mornings since you are practically guaranteed to get the prata just made).
I think there is another prata stall at ayer rajah (west coast drive) that is good. It’s not the one mentioned in your post tho.
Oh i went to that one during lunch and they said no prata. :(
Why RK EATING HOUSE in Serangoon Gardens Estate wasn’t even in the list? I seriously doubt the review was so thorough.
Actually i went to more shops but they were either closed down or undergoing renovations. I returned to some shops a few times. But RK didn’t come up in my research for best pratas. You go read other lists. They ate at 6 places and came up with a top 5 list. We Ate more than 72 pratas already, you still can say not thorough. 😂 😂 😂 you so #harsh lah.

Thanks for the list!! I think RK House is better than a lot of the places on the list. E.g the Roti Prata House at Thomson. That’s hardly even prata.
Thanks for the recommendation!
Thanks! Will visit one day. The shop didn’t come up when i was researching
Fuck you. How many prata places in SG? Bound to miss one what.. Have you ever gone to each and every prata place listed in this article then?
You are awesome. Thank you

Yes. How could u missed enaq??? Crispy and fluffyyy
You missed one at the Woodlands Centre Road Block 4A Food Centre (old Woodlands Centre). Prata shop at the top of the stairs sells superb prata but the hours are ungodly. 4am and sold out by 7-8am.
Unearthly hours,man. I did these by bus and mrt. Don’t think I’m able to catch that one.
But its worth it… u shld try…2 types of gravy.. curry and also sambal sardines …. i had to drive all the way fm punggol to satisfy my pregnant wife cravings at 6.30am on a sunday morning…!!
haha, ok. When I get a car, I’ll go.
They Must have not try the one @ tekka market the only malay uncle selling prata with sambal
It’s #22. Prata Saga Sambal Berlada
Enaq @Jurong East Ave 1 Blk 303. One of the best, if not the best, available.
It’s Jurong’s best kept secret. Don’t tell the whole world leh.
You didnt try Mr Prata, tampines outlet
The prata is always made fresh there
Is it a branch of the evans road?
Should try Zam Zam. The pratas are huge and delicious.
I tried zam zam before but didn’t feel inclined to include it here. 😂
Haha. Oh well…taste is subjective. Kudos for trying all those pratas!
Thanks for your comprehensive review. Though food rating is subjective, I think leaving out Zam Zam kind of dilutes your TOP 10 at the very least. Every few years I drop by whenever the wife visits Raffles Hospital -and they never disappoint. Consistently good. And it’s no easy feat to be consistently good for over a century especially in the F&B industry. In fact, side tracking a bit, other than their pratas, I would rate most of their menu items as above average compared to other similar establishments too.

Omg…A for effort! I would love to travel around Singapore to hunt for food too! Finding time is a problem…
Thanks! Must really plan the route. No car now. I did it by bus!
Try Ali Baba at eunos hawker center just beside eunos mrt. The stall is at the middle section, 1st stall near the walkway to mrt. The prata is always hot & the curry is nice & spicy. The dalca is my fav! Its a to-go place to enjoy my comfort food after work.
Thanks for the recommendation.
You missed one, Blk 117 Petir Road. Bt.Panjang interchange used to be there more than 10yrs ago, and many still drop by for their prata. Pratas only served in morning, and the mutton curry is a must try..!
Thanks for the recommendation!
Thanks for the recommendation. Will try in best prata part 2.
Oh yes yes the jurong one! My all time fav omg esp their prata bomb. So sweet and sinful… even their fried chicken is nice
Wow the jurong one sounds good
Have you tried this prata place? No oil and super yummy. Compared to so many areas…i find this place in Arab street as ine of the top prata place. Wanna give a try?
What is the name of the prata shop?
What about the prata at Al-Salam at 801 Tampines Avenue 4?
Maybe we will try it for best prata part 2. Thanks!

OMG the one at ghim moh market is the worst! been eating here for past decade and its super oily !!!! Taste bad…there’s people buying because its the only prata stall….. in 1km radius!
Golden Nur has very nice roti pratas. Its located at Golden Shoe Carpark. Market St. Hawker Centre. Its a must try when you are around that area. Its well known among the people working that CBD area. Its worth trying! 😊
OK. Thanks! Will do!
Did u guys try the prata at Enaq Restaurant? It’s located at blk 303 Jurong east. Best prata/cheese prata I’ve had! Super crispy and flavourful!!! Must check it out!

On your sound.
HAHA. I kid tho. Some places on the list are good! You really gotta check out enaq tho worth your time and money. Their bomb prata <3 Their plaster prata is usually cooked to perfection.
Haha OK OK. I’ll go.

Try the prata shop at geylang lor 1.. Always have regulars and their prata and curry is good.. The drinks are cheap too..
Question: Did you put on weight while doing research for this article? Lol. Also. How long did it take you to try all these stalls and did you always finish the entire two pratas on your own?
Lol. No. 3 months. And no. Usually someone eats with me.
please try the prata at block 202 ang mo kio ave 1 kopitiam
i could only say, no joke
Try prata@teban gardens rd.. coffeeshop besides ntuc. Best.
Try Alif, now called Thohirah, diagonally across Bukit gombak MRT.
I went there. I saw it was changed to thohirah so i didn’t try it. Coz i already tried thohirah at jalan kayu
it’s different. the guys working there are alif workers!
Ah. I didn’t know. Thanks. I’ll include this next time.
You can try the prata at Jin Biao Coffeeshop at Tampines Street 22, Block 280. It’s opposite Angsana Primary School (previously Griffith Primary School). Quiet and windy area with HDB car parks!
Thanks for the tip.
Hi, you should try Ariff Restaurant at no. 71 Kallang Bahru ask for sambal too and must pair with Teh Tarek :)
I second this place at Kallang bahru. It’s 24hrs and the plain Prata is just amazing! Gotta pair it with their fish curry, it’s superb with lotsa spices and ingredients!
Hi, the best prate for me will be at Bukit Gombak MRT station. There is an Indian store (sorry I forget the name but it is the only one there) at the hawker center beside the Prime Supermarket. The thick gravy is to die for with bits of mutton fats in it (you can request for it also if they have to add in your gravy). I always eat mine to go with the gravy poured in together with the prata and packed. When its time to eat it, the prata will be nicely drenched by the gravy. I hope you guys like it too.
I heard about this one but i didn’t visit because i don’t know the name or the exact address. Thanks for this. Will keep this in mind for part 2 of best prata.
Block 373, next to a roast meat stall. Long queue in the morning, piping hot curry
Such an comprehensive list !! Thanks for all the hard work eating pratas =D
Thanks thanks. :)
You should go to chai chee street (next to pingyi secondary school) and try out the prata over there!! cant rmb a time i was served with cold prata too. I always visit during the night (opens 24 hrs)
#2 i believe is using those NTUC readymake roti prata? but the curry is very good
Yes, you’re partly right. They don’t use ntuc ready-made prata, but they use factory dough. They don’t make the dough themselves. I just talked about it on ig.
You should try the prata at Chun Sheng Yuan Eating House at 826A Upper Bukit Timah Road. It’s one of the best I’ve ever eaten.
Yes sir or mdm!
YEAH… I second this! Having it almost once a week.. haha Simply love the mushroom cheese egg! Always long q during weekend.. yes… please try.. interested to know how it will be rated.. 😊
Hi, I applaud your effort and dedication. It’s not easy to do this as a hobby, much less sustain it over such a long period.

Thank you so much for the kind words, Tracy. It means a lot to me. I appreciate it very, very much. Have a good Lunar New Year!
go polytechnics and try and rate which sch prata number 1 eh
lol! Such a strange request.
We passed by, but none of the customers were eating pratas. And the shop name didn’t come up in our research. So we gave it a miss.
In my opinion, its better than al-ameen that is beside them. Cheers!
THanks! I’ll pay them a visit if i’m doing Part 2 of Best Pratas.
al azhar’s prata no good. But they serve fried ice cream ;)
Theres no casuarina curry too. Its near Macritchie Resevoir.
It’s at #12.
How about NUS Engineering faculty. It’s damn awesome! And confirm cheaper haha
Haha. Ok. I’ll do a school tour soon
I live in Telok Blangah and have eaten #7 countless times. I am very surprised to see it so high in the rankings. It’s a decent to good prata depending on how early you go, but to be #7 on the list, means the prata “scene” is in trouble
Yikes. When i was there, i was the first customer and the guy made the prata on the spot. Very hot, crispy and fluffy. I almost scalded my fingers holding the metal plate. That might have influenced the score. Hot pratas taste infinitely better than cold ones.
bro u missed out prata paradise in tampines !!!
OK OK. Leave it for part 2
#4 Prata Place branch in AMK BLOCK 340 no llonger existing. The replacement prata shop is terrible.
Ah ok. Thanks for the info.
Pfft what would a manjan really know about Indian food? You don’t see an Indian/Malay giving ratings for Hokkien Mee do you? Coz we wouldn’t know the how it’s really supposed to be.
Lol. Don’t be racist, man.
Have you tried the prata at the coffee shop at 202 Ang Mo Kio Ave 3? I love the dahl so much that I always ask for more.
Didn’t try that. Thanks for the tip off! Will try when there is a chance.
Amazing piece of work! Outstanding!
You might want to try the one at Blk 80 Marine Parade… I think it’s quite decent even though it’s quite new, and it opens till 2 – 3am

The one at Chai Chee Street, it’s called Khan Sahab. They make very good pratas and offer 4 different types of curries – veg dhal, chicken curry, fish curry and mutton curry. One of the best i’ve had and it’s open 24 hours.
yes indeed they have good briyani n murtabaks too
RK EATING HOUSE in Serangoon Gardens Estate is missing, they serve the best prata. How come its missed out ?
Thanks for the hard work, effort & recommendation.
Just went to #2 curry cafe, indeed it’s crispy and freshly cooked BUT. Their “pratas” are Instant prata and it is no where near the taste of actual flipped and flopped authentic prata. It’s so buttery I can’t even finish the entire prata (might be a plus for people who are SUPER BUTTER LOVERS) but trust me, for a butter lover like myself (I can have a cube of butter to a bun like those on SIA planes or breakfast buffet) I cant even take the overload-Ness of butter.
I don’t think this should be part of this prata list, not to even mention being ranked #2 with a rating of 8.417/10.
Because anyone can get it off shelf from the supermarkets with spam with butter at home.
Hello Sron. When I ate there, I thought their prata was factory dough so i asked them and they said yes. But it’s not those instant prata. It comes in a dough form, like a small fist. I saw it myself. People selling wanton mee don’t make their own noodles, so i see no reason why they should make their own dough. In any case, I think many prata stalls don’t make their own dough; most get from factory. If I exclude Curry Cafe because they don’t make their own dough, then I’ll have to exclude many shops on this list.
As to the butteriness, I guess to each his own.
Thanks for saving me the calories of eating all 72 to find out, LOL! Great work!
OMG! This is a complete list of Prata places! Great work! It’s amazing to discover more of Singapore food! There’s so much variety. Absolutely fantastic! I am from India and I find the modified forms of Indian food in Singapore interesting. Glad to have found your site ;)

wow good compilation! There was one I recently tried in Hougang ave 3 blk 703 coffee shop. It was great as well!
Oh yeah, it’s superb when freshly made!
there are lots of good pratas in changi village! i think most of them are better than those in your list..
A secret Gem in North East Singapore which no one recommends so far and everyone just says Jalan Kayu. Once you eat here Jalan Kayu is a thing of the past! I Highly recommend the kosong which is cripsy on the outside and soft on the inside, dip in curry and chilli… SHIOK!
Al Falah Restaurant Pte Ltd @ 681 Hougang Avenue 8
Parata wala in NEX mall dont serve Hot parata also they serve very little quantity of Curry. also so much waiting time.
Yeah. Different branches have different standards.
Prata planet inaccesible? U got to be kidding me. Beside clementi mrt and bus interchange..
hi, wonder if u tried Imam Banana Leaf Restaurant.
they have chucks of meat served with their prata. or dhal, one of the best!
along geylang lor 1 good briyani too
No. Thanks for the suggestion.
I fully agree, in fact, Imam has the best prata i’ve had, when they are freshly made, the pratas can be insanely good. Even at 2am. The other one is at Ubi ave 1 there, i forgot the shop name but that shop always, always, always makes fresh pratas, crispy and chewy at the same time.
Thanks for the recommendation. :)
Prata planet hard to access? Its just opposite clementi mrt and bus interchange.. Pity it closes early..
Curry cafe is 2? Curry cafe uses instant prata that you can purchase from cold storage. Lol
Read before commenting lah. Issue was raised previously. Someone said ntuc, you said cold Storage. I talked to the boss leh.
Should try KNS Indian Muslim Food @ 280 Tampines St 22.
Only serves pratas for breakfast though.
The pratas are light, crispy and not oily.
Make sure to ask for a chilli to go with your curries. It gives an added kick if you enjoy your spicy foods.
Did u try at block 538 bedok north st 3 Food centre..shop name Sue’s Prata plain costs $.070..??
No I didn’t. Thanks for recommending it.
I suggest you do separate lists for north, east, south, west and central. From the comments, it seems there are many more prata places than the 36 you visited in compiling this list. :)
Eating is so long… and calories are so few. Lol
Heh. You guys missed one of the best– it’s at Chun Sheng Yuan Eating House, along Upper Bukit Timah Road (next to The Linear). Go check it out!
#3 Not as good as the one in the coffeeshop of blk 66 just across this stall. Their dall curry is superb as good as their prata which is crisp to the touch.
#3 is not as good as the one across at blk 66. Their curry dall is super and their prata crisp to the touch :P
Have you tried a Prata place at Blk 95 Lorong 4 Toa Payoh,? It is besides Tim’s. Not too bad. I wonder how you would rank them.
Thanks for the great effort to try out so many pratas over 3 months by bus!!! Amazing!!! I lovee prata and this list really helps!
Really rubbish eat rubbish grow!! Tested #02 prata today….CURRY CAFE!!
WONDERING Y IT WILL RANK NO.2? IT TASTED THE SAME JUZ LIKE THE ONE I BOUGHT FROM NTUC,FROZEN TYPE.
DONT KNOW Y U RANKED THEM NO.2? STILL A LONG WAY FOR U TO BECOME A FOOD CRITICS.
HOPE NO OFFENCE.
Really rubbish eat rubbish grow…until gave rubbish reviews!!
Tested #02 prata…curry cafe
The prata taste just like i bought those from supermarket..frozen type. U go buy the chinatown brand at ntuc and cook urslf..u will know
Its still a long way for u to become a food critics!!
Hope no offence.
Sorry. I have never eaten processed prata from ntuc so I don’t know how it tastes like.
Tough to trust in the credibility of this post when Curry Cafe, ranked 2nd in this list, uses ready made prata readily found in supermarkets. What a liar.
hi…. just googling about prata in Singapore and found you. thanks for the information. i’ll go to one of them tomorrow…. :-)
You’re welcome. Hope you have a great time!
Did you go to the correct I. Mohamed Ismail stall? It’s at the market not the shopping centre. Morning is the best time though.
Just read through the comments and people are just SO HARD TO SATISFY -_- Well done for saving us the calories (and prata has A LOT) and for compiling this list!
That said, my boyfriend made me cycle from Marine Parade to #1 on the list and I was so sweaty/tired to enjoy it fully though I really did find it amazing still. He didn’t even know the list existed but that was his personal #1 so I guess there’s two more people who would agree with you now :)
Thanks for your kindness. :) I am glad you like mogan! After I ate that, I couldn’t eat any other prata.
HI, just like to say that the Prata Planet at Clementi is actually very near to Clementi MRT station. Can actually see the block where the restaurant is from the Clementi MRT platform (towards Pasir Ris side). And, no, I am NOT from Prata Planet. I am just a regular customer who works in West Coast and knows her way around Clementi.

Thanks. I was driving so I didn’t notice
If you get the chance to, do try the prata at Blk 19 Marsiling Lane…the coffeeshop facing the wet market carpark. It’s the best i tried to date (i have not try Mr & Mrs Mohgan though) & has the kind of dough taste i remembered from early 80s (i very much dislike casurina dough taste). There’s often a long queue in the morning…think they sold out around 11+. They make their own dough. Kosong is better than Egg, but egg is good too. There are a few choices of curry…can’t remembered which is the best.
Am the can have prata everyday anytime person ;p…

Did you know that Sin Min Roti Prata stall’s previous owner was Julaiha Muslim’s Restaurant’s? He already made it famous then. The praise/appreciation should go current Julaiha’s owner. It was his father and himself(julaiha’s owner) who made this happen. It all started with a wrong publicity (Lost and Found- once aired in channel 5) and the current owner (SinMin Roti Prata) falsely admitted that it was him they were looking for instead of sending them to Julaiha’s. Of course, many of Julaihai’s old customer’s know about this issue, and are still in touch! anyways.. these are just FYI!! :)

Very good research, appreciate the time for doing this up, BUT, how can you miss out ENAQ?????????? Most likely the only prata place with sambal chilli, consistent crispiness, good curry, easy parking and the list goes on. Please go try!
That’s why you should join my Facebook. When I asked for recommendations, no one suggested enaq.
Curry Cafe should be flung out of your list to never see the light of day again. I excitedly visited the place after reading the review only to find that the place is serving instant pratas that we can all buy from the supermarkets and make ourselves. And they’re charging at equal prices that the other real prata restaurants are charging. What an insult to other real prata sellers in Singapore. Thanks for all your hard work putting this list together, but Curry Cafe ranked at 2 is just pure ludicrous.
Amen! I was also excited to try when I happened to be around the area because in this list, Curry Cafe is ranked higher than Springleaf or Casuarina (my fav). Stepped in, felt really suspicious, and one bite and I knew it was instant. I get the same effect if I used the air fryer. Stepped out feeling sad for the wasted calories haha.
> BEST ROTI PRATA In SINGAPORE !!! <
Near to the AIA Building @ Blk 126 Bukit Merah Lane 1 #01-204 Indian Muslim Eating House " Pepper & Salt , their Roti Prata is the the Best in SG. also can try try their fried rice , Nasi Padang is also nice. call 96825337 for booking seat..
HAVE YOU TRIED PRATA @ PRATA ALLEY? I think you have missed something there
never heard of it. Thanks for the recommendation.
I totally agree with you about thomson road’s obsession with crispy pratas.. I always find it strange that people are crazy over them and glad to finally find someone who shares the same view that they are overrated, like biscuits/frozen pratas..
What about Springleaf prata @ sunset way & springleaf garden. They have other outlets too but i have not tried, only the 2 and love the sunset outlet. They definitely beat casurina prata which standard has dropped so much. They had stall at Ngee Ann Poly canteen but since moved out in 2018.
We went to the Springleaf at their original outlet at upper Thomson area.
Planning to try all pratas myself! However, not able to access the map anymore. Possible to share/email me a screenshot of the map? Thanks Prata buddy!
Sorry, the map is gone.
Just wanted to say I love when you do this ‘best of’ series. Wow the commitment to eating that much Prata. Your pics have got me craving for sure. Also missed reading your blog. Been mostly on Instagram for the past 5 years.
