Superb end to the year. Great place to come and sit in the open air and have a meal and soak up the atmosphere and lively vibe. It's all about the vibe and soul here. This place is in the adjacent road to the Arab street or on it but they are all the same. No idea what I ate... More

Recommended by the Michelin Guide you take your seat believing this will be a good place to dine within the famous Kampong Glam. I enjoyed the Meze Tabagi, the lamb and what looks like 'balloon bread'. We sat outside and received attentive service and when combined with great friends and good wine it makes for an excellent night.

My family of five went to try the Turkish food and some coffee - which was in a beautiful cup about the size of a thimble with coffee that tasted strangely both like dirt and something wonderful - and we were not disappointed. If you suspect that you would like Turkish food and are trying to figure out online where... More

I've been here twice. Ordered different mains each time and I love all the orders. Appetizer I ordered the platter, love it as I get to taste all the different appetizers. Main dishes were not disappointing at all. Dessert which is sweet vermicelli is delicious and not overly sweet .

Food was okay, but not more than that. Prices however in this restaurant are way too high in relation to the quality and the size of the food being served. Service varies strongly between very nice and friendly and not saying a single word.

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

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.
