I had my very first murtabak at Zam Zam years ago and, in my last visit to Singapore, I managed to take a quick visit to this store again. I've had other murtabak's but nothing comes close to their flaky, stretchy pastry. Zam Zam is not fine dining and so service and dining comfort are not... read more

This is my second visit here, with about 2 years between visits. We went at a weird time, about 4.30 on a weekday, so it was fairly quiet. Regardless we had amazing service, with our lovely waiter checking in on us and refilling our murtabak sauce without asking. We shared a sardine murtabak ($7 size) and couldn't finish it. Food...

The location is so strategic and obviously accessible by MRT - walking distance. The server or waiter approached us but not that well welcome due to busy moment but just be nice and smiley. The food was nice and valued for money. However the service was quite slow and ambience soo noisy. The hand wash area was mixed with the... More

This restaurant is my favourite place to stopover once a week before heading to work. I love the egg prata with fish curry.Its texture is so crispy and soft. They have drive thru services too.

Staff seemed very disinterested and service was slow and offhand, but the chicken murtabak was AMAZING - crispy, stretchy layers of pancake like dough with a delicious ground chicken, egg, onion and spices filling. We had to order more, itwas so good, even though they are big serves. Prices are pretty cheap, ambience minimal, staff grumpy, but it us definitely... More

The food here is excellent and very good value for money. Seems a bit crazy from the outside but it is very well organised. We had beef muhktaba (? Not sure that is right) - ordered a medium but small would have been enough and the chicken biriani which came with delicious sauces also we bought a veg curry. $15... More

Most occasions you'll get to see ZAM ZAM foods being catered in weddings and other functions. So excitedly we ordered e chicken BRIYANI and mutton murtabak. To our... More

When we went it was a very hot day and it was nice to get inside for a meal and air con. When we got in the ambience of the restaurant was sort of poor, with chips on the walls and the menus high up on them. The tables and chairs looked like they were from a family BBQ, plastic... 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.
