What a feast we had sitting in what could have been the Middle East, but was in fact a lovely quiet restaurant nestled by the Singapore River. There was a choice of seating either inside or out. We sat out so we could people watch and catch the breezes. Appetisers were lamb kofta and chef made soft cheese with oilive oil and Lebanese bread. Main was lamb stew with preserved lemon and beans and chickpea falafel. The lamb was so tender it just fell apart and the falafel was crunchy on the outside and perfectly seasoned. We caught drinks in happy hour, gin was $9 and beer $11 but then had to add 17% tax. Mains were on average $30 to $45 pre tax. Service was good and staff friendly and informative. Really enjoyed the meal and will certainly revisit next time we travel through Singapore.

My colleagues and I had a working lunch at this restaurant. The food was very nice - beautiful authentic middle eastern cuisine and I would recommend it as a treat for those who love charcoal grilled food.

The food is very expensive, expect to pay around $75 per person without wine, and they do not accept American Express which for me is unforgivable in a restaurant at this price-point.

Overpriced? Not for Singapore, sure it’s not cheap, but it’s totally worth it.

Had been looking for good middle-eastern food for a while and finally we found this place. Menu has plenty of options to choose and quality is great.

After 5 weeks of traveling in Vietnam, sampling many local and varied Asian dishes we were in need of something different. This meal was perfect, delightful surrounding and staff, complimented by a very enjoyable and ‘different’ meal, which made a most welcome change. The 5 sharing starter was very generous for 2, as well as delicious. The mixed kebabs we shared, and the combination of lamb and chicken with the delicious coatings and rice made a more than adequate serving. The meal was finished off with Persian ice cream, delicious and as our last evening meal of the trip, made a memorable experience. Cost was ‘reasonable’ for Singapore restaurants and value for money.
