The only Turkish restaurant on the Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand list. The food is great. We ordered the Meze Tabaki which is a platter of appetizer dips that goes with the bread. We ordered the soft and fresh from the oven Lavas bread to go with it. The kebab is tasty, tender and juicy. We ordered the Karisik Kebab which... More

Had a celebratory lunch here. First time at the recommendation of my son. Had a good assortment of the food. I recommend you try the Meze Tabagi ( starter) and the Karisik Kebab ( shared dish) and wash it down with a Aryan or for the less adventurous, the apple tea. Excellent ambience, service and food. 4 thumbs up from... More

My husband and I ate here twice, once with my son, and several days later on our own. Dorothy the hostess not only remembered we had been here ("Will Ian be joining you?"), but she remembered what we'd eaten. Our favorite dish was the Beyti Kabob, lamb wrapped in Turkish flat bread with a sauce to die for. The Meza... More

Despite the high rating / reviews this was the most disappointing food I had....a mezzeh platter for a single person is a few spoonfuls of everything slammed on to a small plate (S$20+) which looked abosolutely un-appetising Having had the same in several countries this was totalled down sadly

We're happy to be given a table even when the restaurant is fully booked. While there are many restaurants there only few are well occupied, like Alaturk. Service was friendly, and even, when we were given an hour for our dinner due to a later booking, they didn't rush us. Food was OK and the bread freshly baked, which was... More

First time eating here. Nice street-side outdoor seating option. Staff were attentive and polite. In particular, the front of house manager, Dorothy, was great - very approachable, very friendly, and very helpful. The food that we ordered arrived quickly and was delicious. Of particular note, in terms of the flavour, quality, and presentation were the Beyti Lamb and the Kuzu... More

I went with my husband in public holiday night, which wasn't busy. The food wasn't fantastic but good enough. The staff smoked outside even we were sitting outside and no staff gave us attention when we need to ask something. At the end, they charged 10% service fee?! Hummm

I always return to this place when traveling to Singapore, it's near Sultan Mosque, with great food, friendly service which virtually transports you to Istambul. It's a nice place with good quality of food.

This was my second visit, and what I like about this place (compared to neighboring options) is that they offer a meat platter to share, which is more than enough for two people. Sadly, they aren't very flexible with adjusting the menu - i.e., no rice, extra veges, or substituting meats for ones preferred. This was unfortunate, as there are... More

came to know about the restaurant only after they were named by Michelin Bib. Went for a friday night dinner with A. The place is difficult to locate but was quite crowded that time. We had mezze as starter and went for the lamb kebab - both were average and completely undistinguishable from the other shops in that area like... 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.
