1. Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s
Image credit: @lebonchai
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. Prices start at $1.20 for a Plain Prata, but fans truly love their Coin Prata ($5).
There are no complaints except for the fact that it closes in the early afternoon. Queues seem to be perpetually long, so make sure you visit early in the morning to avoid waiting!
Address: 300 Joo Chiat Road, Singapore 427551
Opening hours: Thurs-Tue 6:30am to 1pm
2. Casuarina Curry

If you’re looking for a cosy, air-conditioned place that serves light and crispy prata that’s to die for, head to Casuarina Curry. This eatery has earned a dear place in the hearts of diners all across Singapore, and for good reason too—their serving size is larger than average and their prata has the most amazing soft, crispy texture to it.
The best news is they do catering—check out their website to find out more!
Address: 136-138 Casuarina Rd, Singapore 579526
Opening hours: Sun-Thurs 7am to 11pm, Fri-Sat 7am to 11:30am
Address: 187 MacPherson Rd, Singapore 348545
Opening hours: Mon-Thurs 10am to 11pm, Fri 10am to 12am, Sat 8am to 12am, Sun 8am to 11pm
3. The Roti Prata House
This place, famous for how crispy their prata is, also has a variety of strange yet surprisingly appetising flavours to choose from, such as Banana ($4) and Milo Cheese ($4.50). If you like a softer take on the dish, though, definitely give this place a miss.
Prices start at $1 for their Crispy Prata.
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!
Unique renditions include their Prata Alfredo ($11.30) and Salted Egg Prawn Prata ($12.50).
5. Sin Ming Roti Prata
Image credit: @feedmethatnow
Sin Ming Roti Prata offers crispy yet chewy prata 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. Get their Coin Prata, priced at $5 for six pieces.
They open from 6:30am, so early risers can get their prata fix!
Address: 24 Sin Ming Road, Gim Huat Coffeeshop, Singapore 570024
Opening hours: Sat-Thurs 6:30am to 6pm
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 ($2.80) 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
Image credit: @foodiefc
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. This place does it right at $1.80 a pop 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: Tue-Sun 5:45am 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.
A plate with two plain pieces will set you back at $2.40, but the popular chain also has more unique flavours including Butter Banana Prata ($3.50) and Italian Prata ($9), which comes with mushroom, capsicum, onion, and cheese.
10. New Mahamoodiya Restaurant

The prata at this 24/7 joint 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.
Prata Kosong is priced at $2.20 for two, with variations such as Double Egg ($2.40) and Prata Plaster ($1.80).
Address: 335 Bedok Road, Singapore 469510
Opening hours: Daily 24 hours

$1.30 original prata is the reason why many flock to ENAQ, a prata business with two outlets: Jurong East and Ghim Moh. 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.
Those with a sweet tooth can try their Kaya ($2.50) or Peanut Butter ($2.60) flavours for an extra indulgent fix.

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 Double 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
Image credit: @feedfrankfood
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 Crispy Prata ($3 for two pieces) is said to be incredibly crispy on the outside and slightly fluffy on the inside. Alternatively, try the Plaster Prata ($2.50), which features a sunny side up egg. There are also other innovative flavours that you can explore such as the Kaya Prata ($3.40) and Italian Pizza Prata ($9.90)
Address: 321 Alexandra Road, #01-02 Alexandra Central Mall, Singapore 159971
Opening hours: Daily 10am to 12am
Address: 604 Sembawang Road, #01-24/25, Sembawang Shopping Centre, Singapore 758459
Opening hours: Daily 8am to 10pm
16. Al-Azhar Restaurant

Al-Azhar is a restaurant chain with three outlets islandwide: Bukit Timah, Tampines, and Geylang. Regulars are drawn to their extensive menu, which includes prata, Muslim-friendly Thai fare, and delicious biryani, among many other items.
Try their Murtabak (from $9.20), a sharing-sized prata loaded with your meat filling of choice.
17. Al-Ameen Eating Corner

Al-Ameen has a few outlets across Singapore, but their most popular one is arguably their Marsiling branch, as it closes at 2am daily.
The prata served here is said to be more on the doughy side, and you get to pick from various flavours, including Prata Scrambled ($7) AKA kothu prata, which features prata that’s chopped up into strands and fried. Their Coin Prata Set ($7), served with your choice of chicken or mutton, is another signature item. Sweet flavours such as Prata Milo ($2.50) and Prata Ice Cream ($5) are on the menu too.
Address: 35 Marsiling Industrial Estate Road 3, #01-11, Central Industrial Estate, Singapore 739257
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 6am to 2am, Sun 11am to 2am
