Owner description: Visitors who enjoy a little bargaining will find it here among the historic shops selling textiles, perfume and more. Along with traditional Muslim food offerings, some Western restaurants have settled into the area, creating a Singaporean blend of cultures. Make sure to stop at the island’s largest mosque, the Sultan Mosque, a landmark in the Kampong Glam Malay Heritage District.

Arab Street has so much character and is a great place to spend some time. The tight streets are absolutely laden with cool bars, cafes and restaurants. We loved it as we got to eat some good Arab and Turkish food

While in Arab st, we feel hungry so had a snack /meal at the Turkish restaurateur on Arab street. We had the three course meal, very nice to eat , reasonable priced as well as well as a very good service from the staff.
All spoke good English as well as understanding what we said as well. we had a group of Four, we very different plates for food, from a very mild curry to myself loving it Hot as hell. they were able to cover this range for us in all three courses.
Seating was outside so it was cooler as the time of the meal was about 1400 hrs.
The view was awesome as well with people walking pass outside doing their shopping and sightseeing as well.

After a quick look at Little India we walked here and enjoyed the visit. Various interesting shops and we had a great middle eastern lunch at the Beirut Grill in nearby Bussorah St. Many other eating options in this area.

We took a tour here on our last visit, after many previous visits on our own. Well worth doing. The walk was gentle and the history explained well to us. Many small shops selling touristy items- silk shoe bags, wine bottle holders, serviettes, slippers, hats and much more. A picturesque area with the mosque filling the end of the street. A number of places to eat or snack.
