As a Westerner we look for restaurants with clean tables and silver cutlery and sometimes forget you are there for the food. This little gem is close to the Sultan Mosque and gives you a fantastic taste for flavour adventure. It will almost certainly be busy......99% will be locals and that's great. There might be some clutter on the tables but that's because it has such a traffic flow of guests. We had a mixed selection of dishes and without exception they were all fantastic. No upset stomachs from any of the party. Go there for the atmosphere and go there for the food. You will not be disappointed. It's also very reasonably priced. If you'd like a beer with your food you can't as it is a dry restaurant but this shouldn't put you off!

I wouldn't tell someone to come here for the amenities. It is plastic chairs and low 'wow' factor as far as decor. It is similar to the dozens of corner restaurants sprinkled through Singapore.

That is to say the food here is fantastic. Middle eastern with some Indian touches. It was crowded when we came, and I believe for good reason.

We read the review on trip advisor and boy o boy we were not disappointed at all. The biryani is yummy. The cheapest biryani in town. They sell murtabak which is ideally (finely milled refined and bleached wheat flour) chapati and egg. Its a scam. Its very oily as well. U can safely try the chicken and mutton biryani. They also sell Deer biryani (RUSA) which i didnt try though. another restaurant in BUGIS just like ZAM ZAM is JILANI restaurant which is again SG $ 6 biryani. equally tasty.
Do not forget to carry ur own water as they charge a SG$ 1 for water of 500 ml bottle. Also SG $1 for tea (teh)

Across the street from the Sultan Mosque, this eatery deserves it's high ratings. Get a street side table with beautiful views of the mosque. Food was great and the service was equally good. Servers were fluent in English and had great suggestions of dishes. The line of local cars getting take out demonstrates the food quality.
