Best prata shops in Singapore


One of the staple foods in Singapore, roti prata, has become indispensable to our national culture. But of all the eateries in Singapore, where can we go to truly satisfy our cravings and discover the perfectly made crispy doughy pancake dipped in curry (if you dip it in sugar, I’m sorry, but we can’t be friends)?

Here is our shortlist of the 15 best prata places in Singapore, together with a must-try item on their menu!

Please note that opening hours may differ due to current restrictions.


1. Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s

With handmade dough and freshly made prata that is crispy on the outside and fluffy inside, it’s no wonder Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s is highly raved about as one of the best, if not the best, prata place in Singapore. Mr Mohgan has over 30 years of expertise under his belt making this dish and curry from scratch, so you know it’s the good stuff. There are no complaints except for the fact that it closes in the early afternoon.

Opening hours: Thurs-Tue 6:30am to 1pm


2. Casuarina Curry

A cosy, air-conditioned place that serves light and crispy prata that’s to die for? Yes, please!

3. The Roti Prata House

This place is famous for how crispy their prata is, and also has a variety of strange (yet surprisingly appetising) flavours to choose from, such as banana and milo. If you like a softer take on the dish, though, definitely give this place a miss. 

Address: 246M Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574370
Opening hours: Sun-Thurs 7am to 2am, Fri-Sat 7am to 4am


4. Springleaf Prata Place

This is a comfortable restaurant that provides good food and good service, so there’s no reason you won’t enjoy your meal here. They brand their prata as crispy, with dough made in-house, but it’s really just very slightly crispy with a mostly fluffy inside, and it’s honestly the perfect texture to me!

5. Sin Ming Roti Prata

Crispy yet chewy prata that’s made with handmade dough that leaves a fragrant, buttery taste in your mouth. You won’t be able to get enough of it! Highly regarded by many as the place that serves the most flavourful version of the dish (that comes with really good mutton curry, we hear), all Singaporeans have to try this spot at least once in their lives.

Address: 24 Sin Ming Road, Gim Huat Coffeeshop, Singapore 570024
Opening hours: Sat-Thurs 7am to 4am


6. Prata Wala

What do you do when the urge to snack hits you in the middle of shopping? You drop on by to a Prata Wala outlet! Reviews are slightly mixed on this one, but the general consensus is that they have really good egg prata ($2.40) that’s slightly crispy with a nice fluffy eggy inside. However, prices here are on the higher side and we hear some complaints about the service, so do visit with that expectation in mind.

7. RK Eating House

RK Eating House is an institution in the eyes of Singaporeans. This eatery alone is why many flock to Serangoon Gardens round the clock, looking for crisp, fluffy mounds of prata to satisfy their cravings. Apart from the classic plain and egg versions, RK Eating House is famous for their stunning Tissue Prata ($5.50), which comes in a tower that looms over your table, and requires four to five people to finish. Also on the menu are one-litre towers for your favourite local drinks, such as the IG-worthy Milo Tower ($12), great for sharing with friends.

Address: 1 Kensington Park Road, Singapore 557253
Opening hours: Daily 24 hours


8. Rahmath Cheese Prata

A hidden gem tucked away in a corner of a kopitiam, this place serves a potent, mouthwatering curry and perfectly made prata. I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but to gauge how legit a prata place is, just order their plain option and you can immediately tell the standards of the place. This place does it right – and the rest of the menu doesn’t disappoint either!

Address: 74 Lorong 4 Toa Payoh, #01-08, Toa Payoh Eating House, Singapore 310074
Opening hours: Wed-Sun 6am to 2:30pm


9. Mr Prata

The prata here has a unique savoury taste, different than the typical sweet and buttery ones we are used to. You just have to taste it to know what we’re talking about! They don’t fall under the crispy category either, it’s the usual soft and fluffy version we all know and love.

10. New Mahamoodiya Restaurant

The prata here is fried in a lot of oil, so it might be a little too oily for the tastes of some of you out there. But for the rest of us, this means super nice and crispy golden rounds available for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The signature dish is also served with a thin, watery curry and sambal that we know some people really enjoy.

Address: 335 Bedok Road, Singapore 469510
Opening hours: Daily 24 hours


 11. ENAQ

$1.20 original prata is the reason why many flock to ENAQ, a Jurong East-based eatery. Their speciality is crispy, almost-flaky golden rounds of dough that never come across as oily or too jelak, served with your curry of choice or sambal to go with.

Address: 303 Jurong East Street 32, Singapore 600303
Opening hours: Mon 7am to 10:30pm, Tue-Sun 7am to 11pm


12. Niqqi’s

Cheese prata fans will love Niqqi’s as this Clementi hawker is all about that dish. Situated near the National University of Singapore, this supper favourite has a signature known as a Special Cheese Prata ($5), where ooey-gooey cheese pulls happen once you break into the prata’s paper thin crust. Salty, creamy, loaded with potatoes and eggs too, this is a food coma we know will be worth it.

Address: 16 Clementi Road, Singapore 129745
Opening hours: Daily 24 hours


13. Tanglin Halt Roti Prata

For those who prefer a crispy and light prata, head down to Tanglin Halt Roti Prata. The prata here is said to be slightly crispy around the edges and fluffy in the centre. Just like at any prata store, Tanglin Halt’s prata is served with a plate of mutton, fish, or chicken curry on the side. 

Do note that their roti prata is only available before 12pm, and is usually sold out by midday. If you happen to miss their roti prata, consider the Nasi Kandar (from $4)—a Malaysian-style cai fan—that they’re also famous for.   

Address: Blk 49 Tanglin Halt Road, #01-365, Peking Room, Singapore 142049
Opening hours: Wed-Mon 5am to 3pm


14. Julaiha Muslim Restaurant

Julaiha Muslim Restaurant, situated along MacPherson Road, is one of the go-to supper spots in Singapore. Besides their famed Mutton Nasi Biryani ($7), they are also known for their prata. It is recommended that you pair the Plain ($1.20) flavour with their highly praised mutton curry on the side for extra flavour. If you can’t take spice and want to enjoy a prata that is savoury and flavourful on its own, go for the Cheese ($2) flavour instead.

Address: 538 MacPherson Road, Singapore 36822
Opening hours: Daily 24 hours


15. Master Prata

Master Prata is another eatery that you can consider if you are looking for crispy and buttery rounds of diugh. The Plain Prata ($1.30) is said to be incredibly crispy on the outside and slightly fluffy on the inside. Alternatively, try the Plaster Prata ($2.30) which features a sunny-side up egg. There are also other innovative flavours that you can explore such as the Kaya Prata ($3.10), Butter Prata w Honey ($3.80), and many more.
