The resto is really close to Bussorah Street, but it has no good view of the Mosque - Maybe this is why people tend to look past it. But what a discovery! The food is good and fresh, and the experience was really memorable! My...More

Discrete and charming little place near Bugis, ideal for a good Turkish coffee and MiddleEaster sweets. If you like butter, almonds, pistachio and filo pastry... Great service from the young lady that really made us feel comfortable, thank you.

Food was delicious and service was faultless. We ordered the mixed meze platter with falafels. It was the perfect dish to have and share between friends. We also ordered the cheese pide which was delicious. Food was fresh. Totally recommend.

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

IstanBlue (not to be confused with Istanbul) is one of Singapore's best Turkish restaurants located in the historic Arab quarter (17 Baghdad St). The restaurant is best known for its Adana Kebab, Mixed Grill, Musakka, Pides, Hummus , Kunefe and its juicy Lamb Shank. For travelers visiting Singapore, the restaurant is conveniently located within a very short walking distance from hotels such as the Park Royal, the Pan Pacific on Beach Road as well as the Village Hotel Bugis and is also minutes away from Suntec City Convention Center and Orchard Road, Singapore's premier shopping belt. If you are intending to visit the vicinity of Arab Street, the historical Istana Kampong Glam (Kampong Glam Palace) or the Masjid Sultan (Sultan Mosque), do drop by our humble restaurant or visit our Facebook Page to reserve a table. Our restaurant is air conditioned and we have upstairs seating convenient for private parties and gatherings. We are looking forward to welcoming you to IstanBlue.
