It is situated in the arab quarter of Singapore right on one of the main streets. It rather looks like street food place as all the dishes are already ready. The choice includes fish and meat and with good selection of tastes. All the food is spicy, but not too hot, however the quality of the food doesn't look that... More

Service wise is a lil slow but they are improving it. Ambience is like coffee shop. A lil suffocated when its pack on dinner times or weekends. Dine... More

I always find the local food in Singapore less good than in Malaysia. The exception is Zam Zam, making an excellent Murtabak. Much better and meaty than most of the Murtabak in Malaysia. How could my experience be better? ... if they were serving lassi ...

for local food, i liked Murtaba... they dont have menus card so there was little difficulty in ordering food without knowing prices. Not lavish place for dine in but still very running and occupied
