Two days ago, my hubby and I happen to be in Arab street. As I'm a Singaporean, 20yrs ago we used to patronize this restaurant frequently for its yummy briyanis and murtabaks. 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

Zam Zam was on our itinerary from the beginning due to great reviews about this place. After a tiring visit to Universal Studios & Aquarium, we headed to Kampong Glam district, where Zam Zam is located. This restaurant is packed on most days. It took us 5-10 minutes to get a table. We tried the venison Murtabak and I must... More

I love the cheese prata, murtabak and briyani. Simple food, great value , absolutely no services at all. The tastes are very good though. Comfort food in Singapore is fading, but not this little place. They serve breakfast as well.

Still the best place to go when i have murtabak crave. At times, service might be a little slow due to the crowd. But it is definitely worth waiting for. Beware when you decide to go during lunch time (12-2pm). Waiting time might be up to an hour.

The mutton murtabak is wonderful! Crispy and well cooked. Enough meat and spices. Many locals as well as tourists can be seen eating the variety of food there. I find the chicken murtabak a lil too wet, not crispy to my liking. This visit is not my first actually. Have been here countless times since childhood.

The briyani was perfect and their quality of serving the briyani has been consistent over the years. However, the staff shortage is an issue. As two guys had to run around serving the top floor. We had a bad encounter with one of the guys named, Farhan. He was very rude to us. They took ages to serve us a... More

If you want to try the local food in a local cafe this one is for you. Don't expect anything posh cos this is not this type of place but the food is fantastic. It was so good we went twice. The chicken murtabak is the meal everyone should try, dammed fantastic is all I can say. I did try... 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.
