Now I understand why it is always busy, it has many patrons. Food is very good - a must try is the Chef's recommended meat platter. My friends love the lamb - it was tender and tasty. We love the bread (cannot remember the name though) that has cheese and spinach inside. The hummus and dips platter was equally great... More

This restaurant is situated in Kampong Glam in Bussorah Street. We met friends here for lunch at midday and got a seat outside, luckily it was a bit on the "early" side as the restaurant filled up fairly quickly inside and out. The homemade lemonade was refreshing and not so sweet as most drinks are in Singapore. The meals were... More

There's a lot of restaurants In the vicinity but Alaturka Is one of the few to serve Ice cold beer. The food here Is really good. The large vegetarian platter Is great for 2 people and almost a complete dinner In Itself. Falafels are very tasty, as are the kebabs. Service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely return.

My husband and I came here for dinner on our last evening in Singapore. We sat outside as it was quite packed inside. Firstly the restaurant is located in Arab town and from Alaturka you can see the main mosque at night (masjid Sultan). It looked absolutely beautiful and peaceful all lit up. The service at Alaturka was very good,... More

A lot of the Arab Street Restaurants don't serve alcohol so if you enjoy a beer with your food you need to search a little harder. Nice Fresh bread with a meat platter, the Lamb Chops and the Lamb Shish were the best! Will definitely go back to explore more of the menu there was to many interesting items for... More

This place largely thrives from the setting and atmosphere, especially at night when seated outdoors. It has the chill mediterranean flair. Food is decent, nothing special but not bad at all. Too bad the wait staff, whilst they are certainly trying, they are easily confused, can't remember orders (which dish is for whom, even when visiting with only 2 people),... More

I have been here several times over the years for the lunchtime Mezze and homemade lemonade. Nothing has changed. It is still as good, with their wonderful bread and a mixture of dips. Price is reasonable. Good tables in Street, so you can watch the passing trade and tourists!

Superb end to the year. Great place to come and sit in the open air and have a meal and soak up the atmosphere and lively vibe. It's all about the vibe and soul here. This place is in the adjacent road to the Arab street or on it but they are all the same. No idea what I ate... More

Recommended by the Michelin Guide you take your seat believing this will be a good place to dine within the famous Kampong Glam. I enjoyed the Meze Tabagi, the lamb and what looks like 'balloon bread'. We sat outside and received attentive service and when combined with great friends and good wine it makes for an excellent night.

My family of five went to try the Turkish food and some coffee - which was in a beautiful cup about the size of a thimble with coffee that tasted strangely both like dirt and something wonderful - and we were not disappointed. If you suspect that you would like Turkish food and are trying to figure out online where... More

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
