I preferred the sardine murtabak over the chicken. The curry is quite thick. Had the chicken and the fish curry but preferred the fish curry over the chicken.

Now, there's a lot of confusion as to which Zam Zam is being referred to here, as apparently many other restaurants have opened up claiming to be the original Zam Zam. Here's the tip on how to find the REAL AUTHENTIC Zam Zam: It's located right opposite the majestic mosque around Arab Street, at the corner facing a traffic light!... More

We tried the lamb and beef murtabak in the small serving, one of them wouldve been sufficient for my young daughter and myself. The lamb was the favourite! We found the serving staff rude, which was a shame. Wesat in the air conditioned 2nd floor, but it was still rather warm.

The murtabak is PHENOMENAL!!!! (Chicken one is best) the service was good the 2 times I'd been there, you just have to signal to someone when you are ready or need something!! Awesome place

The establishment is basic in terms of decor, but there's a reason Zam Zam is always packed with locals and tourists alike. The murtabak is excellent. Some of the best we've ever tasted and we've tasted quite a few. We selected 2 mediums, one deer meat and one chicken, for 3 people thinking we would have left overs. Hahaha. Leftovers.... More

Had some lunch here between sight seeing. Great spot to have mutarbak and briyani with the locals! Delicious and fast food. Lunch for 2 plus drinks for less than $15.

Well, I used to say Zam Zam was one of my favorite restaurants in Singapore - for all the reasons nicely detailed in the favorable reviews. But I was very disappointed today. I came for my regular dishes of the basics (Murtabak, Briyani - oh, you spell it) - but this time around, I had a major wait to be... More

Me and my partner went for a day trip to Spore on Dec 18th. I have made arrangements on where to eat list in Spore. We are food lovers.

I am not an Indian nor a Muslim, so if you asked me how traditionally perfect the foods here are, I wont be much helpful. But if you ask me if I enjoy what I ordered today? I would say "I did, why dont u try if u haven't? :)" I read ppl's review and found out their famous dishes... More
