Concierge.com's insider take:

This humble curry house in Little India may well be the most famous restaurant in Singapore. The huge, air-conditioned dining room, with its fluorescent lights and Formica, has all the ambience of a high-school cafeteria; still, it's unanimously acknowledged to serve the city's best fish-head curry (roughly equivalent to the best bagel in New York). Once you're seated, the waiter slaps down a fresh green banana leaf in front of you to serve as the plate. Then, dishes of fluffy rice, papadum, and vegetables, and a bowl of potently aromatic curry with a huge fish head staring back at you. Don't be unnerved; the dish is meaty, intensely flavorful, and delicious. The Apolo shows no sign of suffering from legend-itis: Discerning Tamil locals consistently throng here for lunch.
