Would give it to them for maintaining their food quality, quantity and variety over the years. One of the most popular spots to hang out for supper and indulge in the wide spectrum of menu selections - from Western, Thai, to authentic Malay/Indian cuisines. They are all good all-rounder with a rather good service to top it off. Was pleasantly surprised with their Alfredo and Carbonara! Love their Maggie Goreng and Naan with Butter Chicken as well. Prices are not as cheap as previous but still works to fill up the tummy and satisfy your cravings. They have a QR ordering system now as well which makes things much smoother operationally and of course digital payments is always a huge plus. Can get really crowded on weekends and Fridays with limited parallel parking spaces, but easily accessible via Beauty World MRT regardless.

Good mutton and chicken briyani, tandoori was OK. Maggi goreng was nice too. Food came fast even though we were a large group.

This Indian Muslim restaurant is crowded. People look full of life with chatting and eating. It’s not easy to choose from variety of menu. I was quite satisfied with the taste and price…!

Al-Azhar Restaurant, which is more of outdoor dining, with plastic chairs and tables, is located along with Bukit Timah Beauty World. The stall served mainly Halal dishes and consisted of Thai, western, and Indian-Malay dishes. It is a hit-and-miss dining experience for our team lunch. We have rated Al-Azhar Restaurant accordingly in the following categories: Food: 3.5, Service: 3, Value: 3.5, Atmosphere: 3.5. The app when we use it may not display the food ordered at the final receipt. It is a hustle The diner has to find a table. order your meal using the app and walk to the cashier to pay and the staff can prepare the food. Lastly, despite not including the service charge, the food/trays have to be returned. Despite the prices being reasonable, in terms of the dishes, the food is not flavourful and delicious. It lacks hardy herbs to the dishes early in the cooking process. Lack of customer service to introduce their top-rated dishes. Truly, a dining place to be forgotten.

A great place to have supper. For the price, expect $30 for 2 person. I would recommend butter chicken, although the portion is small..

I've been using this restaurant as a JC peeps meeting base for years. Glad to see that it, together with its competition down the road, has survived the building of the MRT line. When I last went, they didn't have date milkshake. Not sure if its temporary or for good. Date milkshake is good 👍

The food here is not as good as 3-4 years ago when I first came here for their prata. The standard has drop tremendously! Prata is so rubbery like, hard to chew! Chicken butter masala was not as good as before! I will not pay a premium anymore for this restaurant, came back after so many years and it had dissapointed me

Ordered their small mutton murtabak ($10 as at Nov 2022). What intrigued me was their QR ordering system which allowed payment by credit card. This is probably the first time I have paid for prata with credit card. There could be improvements to the ordering and payment system. Firstly, there is no receipt nor confirmation of payment. The site also refreshes to the default ordering page once transaction is completed. This does not provide the customer with oversight of the order on their end.

One of my favourite go-to place for naan & butter chicken. Giving them 5 stars for food consistency over the years. Their butter chicken are one of those that don’t taste greasy after awhile, the chicken pieces are of big chunks too. They have improved slightly on the cleanliness of the place, the floor & tables used to be sticky all the time. Do note that they have also replaced the physical menus with QR codes, you have to either make payment online or at the counter first before they will serve your food to you.

Pleasantly surprised by their mee soto. The soup was a little thicker than usual, but it was full of flavor and toppings. I didn't expect so much chicken and the bergedil for a little less than $5. I'll come back for this. And the teh tarik is pretty good too.

This is one of those few eateries I often wonder how they managed to attract the crowds. The place isn't cozy, the food are generally pricey, there are mostly misses than hits in their extensive menu, even the tasty ones are achieve by being too greasy & over saucy like the Maggi Goreng Pattaya I had today. Also their QR code ordering system is a pain to use, there's no embedded payment system to any of the many existing digital payment we have here, you simply have to enter ur credit card manually. If you choose to pay at the counter, your cart orders would be gone and you have to re-order everything at the counter.

It’s been a while since I came here and the increase in price is really steep; I no longer find it value for money. We got Plain Prata x1, Egg Prata x1, Butter Chicken x1, Garlic Naan x1, Dum Briyani x1 and Iced Teh Tarik x2 which added up to $38.80 for 2. Prata is average but their fish curry is really diluted. Butter chicken is not bad. Garlic naan is what you would expect it to taste. The only thing worth the price is probably the Dum Briyani. Although it looked like a small portion, there was a lot of mutton buried in the rice and was really filling. The mutton was also tender with really nice gravy. Personally will not be back again.

Good place to have your Indian breakfast. Service is good during the morning. Last I had supper here at night on weekend, they clean your table as soon as you finish your food to make way for the next diner which is understandable. So, decide if you want a place for good food or a place to hang out.

Incredibly extensive menu with plenty of seating. Service is really quick and you order through a QR code so it’s convenient. There’s parallel parking along the road and parking at the malls opposite. The food was good, there’s choice between dum briyani and just briyani and this was the plain briyani, rice was flavourful and the chicken was good. Can even choose what piece of chicken you want. Overall quite nice, i would return and would want to try the other stuff on the menu.

I got the Tandoori chicken briyani for $13. It came with 2 sauces, one potato curry and one yogurt based. The chicken was a bit small but tastes pretty good, though it is a bit tough. I really like the savouriness of the curry with the fragrant rice, it’s the sauce i prefer out of the 2. The yogurt was sour though not overly sour, and goes really well with the rice too. Overall it’s a pretty good dish, flavours are nice not too overpowering, though id like it to be a bit stronger.

We ordered a bunch of food to share. Everything was sedap except maggie goreng merah which was a bit too salty. But salty salty also finish. So… okay lah. Just eat. But the butter chicken and naan combo so shiok. Already here, try lah. I also love how everything seems to contactless — can order and pay by QR code. But if you opt to pay at the counter, remember to pay first then they will put your order in to cook your food. Atmosphere wise — not bad lah a lot of fans on a warm day (every day warm day siak). Got sink to wash hands also. The toilet? Alamak we never go. Coffeeshop toilet, you go in close one eye lah. Came here for food and to lepak. Got both of those things so ok lah. Will definitely come back!

Food is average but they have a really extensive menu so can you try lots of different things and it’s served quickly. Plenty of seating but it gets crowded sometimes and can be noisy. Opens till late so good for a meal after a night out. I had the mee goreng pattaya, pretty cool how they wrapped my noodles up in an egg.

The number of dishes on offer at this eatery is mind blowing! We ordered the Mee Goreng Pattaya (meat free) for myself, Tulang Soup for my dad and Butter Chicken w Rumali Roti for my mum. All the dishes were tasty, and reasonably priced. However, the price of the Lime Juice was pretty steep at $4.50 per pax. Staff are very kind and helpful, so kudos to them for their wonderful service.

We ordered a mee goreng, Tulang soup kambing and butter chicken with Rumalli bread. The Mee goreng was pretty decent. The meat on the Tulang soup kambing fell off easily and it was a pleasure eating it. The only request is that the soup was not piping hot, and was probably only at 80 deg Celsius. It would have tasted much better if the soup was piping hot. The butter chicken was a disappointment as it really didn't taste like butter chicken.

I would have given the food a 4 stars review but because of the gula melaka cake, I had to give it a 3 stars. The gula melaka cake was soooo dry. So dry that’s near to hard that I thought they came out of the freezer. Either that or the cake has been there for 1 week. If they got from the supplier and that’s how it is, they need to change the supplier. Other than that, the service was excellent. We order mee Soto with the wrong type of noodle, they change it for us with no additional charge. For that 5 stars.

Al-Azhar Restaurant really needs no introduction. It is a famous eatery that is well patronised by people from all walks of life. Indeed, customers seem to be streaming in throughout the day and well into the night, to the wee hours of the next day. There are so many food options - there's literally something for everyone here. You might be overwhelmed with the vast array of choices that you have. After you have, after careful consideration, decided what to eat, the same overwhelming choices presents itself again when you decide what to drink. We ordered the Sizzling Rib Eye Steak ($22.90), Mutton Satay, Mutton Malasa Prata Set, and Seafood Sambal Kway Teow. Some people like to be given options - the more the merrier. A stall offering 100 dishes is better than a stall offering only 10 dishes, in their opinion. Nothing wrong with that. But as a foodie, I'd prefer to patronise a stall that specialises in one or two dishes. That stall will sink or swim just on those dishes alone. The stall has every incentive to ensure its own survival by mastering and serving the best possible dish, and not be a jack of all trades but master of none. Al-Azhar serves some good stuff (prata for example), and some of its food could be quite good, provided you do not compare it to the competition. For example, their Mutton Satay is quite nice, but there were a couple of sticks of Satay that were difficult to chew because they used Mutton meat containing tendon. Compare this with a satay specialist stall, Al-Azhar's Satay will be blown out of the water. Bottom line: Al-Azhar's food is nice, but not great.

Famous Moslem Indian eatery at the foothill of Bukit Timah. The strategic location sees a healthy number and steady stream of visitors who want to have hearty meals after trekking at or around the hill's many forested trails. Just like typical Moslem Indian eateries here in Singapore, it boasts a super extensive menu. Be it North or South Indian, Western, Malay, Indonesian, halal version of some Singaporean Chinese food, or even Thai, you name it. Due to the large number of patrons it usually serves, it uses a QR code system, of which various types of payment (including Google Pay and credit card) can be used. To cater to the hungry and thirsty trekkers, it even has some certain items tailored for them, like the gigantic portion of calamansi tea (almost a size of a jug!). We ordered three types of naan, chole bathure (fried Indian bread), Afghani chicken, malai kofta (meatball with yoghurt-based gravy), dum briyani, and tandoori set. All of them were delicious, perhaps only the malai kofta that wasn't up to our palate since the gravy was too sweet. Price is rather expensive, perhaps due to its proximity being near a tourist (although mostly local ones) destination. Will come back if I am around the area next time.
