Dropped by for dinner at this place on a weekday. It's a small place with mostly indoor seating. Service is very warm and friendly. The menu is quite elaborate. The kebabs are well prepared and the hummus is nice too! The portions of tea should be larger, we felt. Since, it was a weekday there weren't too many people waiting... More

Popped by for lunch on Saturday, restaurant was fully seated but service was still good and friendly. The parsley and tomato salad was refreshing and paired well with all the meat dishes, chicken kebab set was my favorite and portions were generous. Sweet yogurt drink and cinnamon tea are also quite good. Grilled beef wrap was a bit dry though... More

My colleague just joined us and I wanted to bring them to somewhere 'special'. Been there a year ago, good food but bad service, so I was prepared. To my disappointment, the service was much better BUT the chicken and beef was dry and tough - so this is then 'expensive' for me. Will not visit again and I felt... More

It is hard to find a nice quiet restaurant in Singapore with the whole overwhelming population problem in that one tiny dot on the map. Telok Ayer is one rare gem that houses a number of nice eateries, and Urban Bites is one of the leaders in that list of eateries. Middle Eastern food in Singapore is a-plenty (especially the...

I had grilled halomi and kebbeh as starters and mixed grill and zaatar. And the girl was really good because she warned me that i might over ordered. I should have... More

We had a business dinner and needed a halal restaurant for one of our guests. As it was the first day of Ramadan, most halal restaurants in town were closed. This one was open. Food was ok, however much bread. I had lettuce with meat in all forms. The classic hummus was good. The meat was salty, the service average.... More
