Great taste

We were passing by and I noticed the place from reading previous reviews. Ordered the mutton murtabak and biryani.My husband enjoyed the biyani and the mutton murtabak was excellent. The lime juice was refreshing in the heat. Busy popular place. Watch the murtabak being made in the front.

We were in the Arab area of singapore and did not like the look of the touristy restaurants when the touts from Singapore Zam Zam drew attention to the baker who was rolling out Murtabak on the front. That and the draw of Air conditioning got us upstairs and dinning on okra and mutton Murtabak . They were stuffed with... More

A must visit spot for me ! The Martabak are the best in Singapore so far. Their Briyani is excellent although some may like different type of briyani. Price is very reasonable. Service is fast and excellent.

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

Neighborhood 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 colored 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 Center 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.
