Nice owner. Very friendly. Good mix or méditerranéen-arabic cuisine. The mixed grills are particularly good. Portions are about right to be able to do starter and mains without feeling stuffed. No alcool on the menu but a very nice fresh lime and mint drink and of course the compulsory mint tea to end.

Pleasant, cosy little place. The food was tasty, and the service staff was friendly and welcoming. We got a good seat that we called the "balcony seat", from where we could enjoy our dinner and watch the crowds walk by. Prices were also reasonable by Singapore standards. Worth a try!

Very good mediterrenian restaurant with authentic spices and flavours. Must try the humus and fresh bread. A bit pricey, but worth it

I live less than 10 minutes walking distance from Zac's. Compared with other restaurants in Bussorah street, Zac's looks a lot more quiet but it is the real culinary hidden gem on the street. I have tried everything else in the Arab district & nothing quite came as fine and delicate on the tastebud as Zac's Zac, the restaurant owner,... More

Had a nice meal at Zac's with Hummus and Lamb. The food was perfect, the treatment fast and perfect. As the restaurant is located close to the mosque there is a nice and lively activity in the street, which is enjoyable to watch.

I took my parents to have a coffee at Zacs knowing that they make a good brew. However, the treatment we received today was unacceptable. The young girl manning the shop was surly and unhelpful. She gave my father the iced lime-and-mint (when he had asked only for the lime) and never brought us the iced water we had requested... More

Located in Little Arab section and right next to big mosque, so overall feeling little different than usually in Singapore. We sat outside and took 3 different portions to share. Service (to us) was friendly, but not that fast. I can understand complaints about service, because our waiter spend lot of time with his friends in another table. Food was... More

Their service is terrible. I've never had... 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.
