Street restaurant!

This is a street restaurant with no thrills. The food is v cheap though they have a varied offering. Its not the place to take business people, but more for the urban explorer, as you need to be prepared to eat with your hands, good food though and better experience.

In a city so expensive as Singapore is good to reach a place like this, a good restaurant where you can enjoy of the Muslim food. Let's go and enjoy one of the specialities the pancakes with beef or chicken with a coke and a very aforedable price of no more than 7,5 Singapore $.

Based on the recommendation in the Lonely Planet we stopped at Zam Zam to try the pancakes, or murtabaks, as they call them. Restaurant was full of locals, which is usually a good sign that the food is good. We ordered lamb murtabaks and they were very good. They are quite big, we ordered two medium portions which was too... More

We were staying near the Arab area and after a long flight we didn't want to spend time sitting in a restaurant. As we walked past Zam Zam the tout grabbed our attention and the place looked clean and we could see the food being prepared by a man outside the window working through the window. We ordered a quick... More

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.

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

Staying in Kampong Glam

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.
