The best Kunefe in Singapore. It’s like $17+ for one but it’s worth every single cent. The rest of the food is too pricey for me but I’ve tried it at times and they don’t disappoint too. Service is so good and the people there are so funny and there’s always high spirits and good energy when you spend your time there. Love the location, service, people and the food. A good example of a perfect restaurant.

There are vegetarian options available. However, I visited this Turkish restaurant for it’s crisp, authentic and creamy kunafe. It was crisp and surrounded by a creamy ocean of rich milk. I took a bite of this delicious dessert and was blown away. I think it perfectly embodies what you want to find in a dessert. The mint tea was hot and soothing . It was infused with rich flavour. A good experience.

Staff were friendly and helpful. I had my 6mths old daughter in the pram and they helped me carry the pram up the stairs. The food tastes amazing! We bought the Mezza platter, 4 types of appetizers and drinks. The meal fed 4 person and the bill total came to $190+. Worth the spend! Love the atmosphere!

It was my first time in Arab Street and a friend recommended Derwish to us. I have to say that it was one of the best meals I’ve had in Singapore. It has a very good ambience (I recommend eating al fresco) and the food was absolutely delicious. The servers and manager/owner (I think) were so kind and accommodating. I’ll definitely come back again. Thank you so much for the good dining experience.

I am vegeterian and I never expected them to have great varities for me.. loved the options and food. My friends are meat lovers and thy were so happy with the taste. They loved the quality and different taste which turkish cusines have. It was their first time. I had recommended this for farewell lunch party. Portions too big which was not mentioned to us , hence service is 4 star. Food was wasted due to big portions. One Handi can be easily shared between 2 . Atmosphere is great and perfect place for snaps ❤️❤️

Have been here twice, and each dish always leaves us satisfied. Meats are cooked till tender, not dry. And they're marinated very well with the spices, making them packed with flavour. The decor at the 2nd level also makes you feel transported to the middle east.

Ordered the hummus, saksuka with egg and mix grill for 2. Everything was worth ordering. The rice in the mixed grill was really fluffy and fragrant. Meats were nicely seasoned. Only gripe was that the beef was too tough and chewy. Overall a pleasant experience! Total damage was around $120, we over ordered and had to takeaway the food.

The food was superb. We ordered grilled meat kebab consists of lamb, beef and chicken with biryani rice and Hungkar Begendi with Bread. Biryani rice itself was delicious. Everyone in our table enjoyed the food. They even gave us dessert in the house (kunafeh). Thumbs up to the staffs and the chefs. Will definitely go back.

The food was very delicious, it is the reason why we kept on coming back to this place. On top of it, the service was beyond expectations. All staff were friendly, accommodating and very polite in dealing with all customers. The kids plates and utensils were an added plus too on the overall experience. The free desert was an added treat.

Peter, the staff here, was exceptionally polite and gave us a warm welcome. When I needed to store my dessert in the fridge, he was incredibly helpful. Peter also recommended their signature dishes, and we decided to try them. The Tajin lamb shank was a delightful surprise, with tender, succulent meat that practically fell off the bone. The flavors were rich and aromatic, making it a standout dish. The Meze tabagi was a delightful assortment of Mediterranean appetizers, a true explosion of flavors and textures. It included a variety of dips, fresh vegetables, and savory bites, providing a wonderful contrast of tastes. For a refreshing beverage, we ordered the Mango Ayran. It was a perfect balance of sweet and tangy, making it a great complement to our meal. Unfortunately, as there were only two of us, we couldn't order the traditional dessert Peter recommended. Nevertheless, we thoroughly enjoyed the atmospheric environment, delicious food, and excellent service provided by the staff.

Great food and service. Food is definitely wayyy more expensive than the usual, but the taste makes it not such a bad deal. Apple tea is really nice before eating the food, very refreshing and fragrant but after eating any food it doesn't taste as nice.

The menu offers a wonderful variety of authentic Turkish dishes, each bursting with flavors that transported me to the heart of Istanbul. The quality of the ingredients was evident in every bite, and the presentation was a feast for the eyes. The staff at Derwish are not only knowledgeable about the menu but also passionate about ensuring a memorable dining experience. Their attentiveness and friendly demeanor added to the overall positive atmosphere.

Had a delightful dining experience at Derwish Turkish! The mixed kebab platter was outstanding; I was trying to control my carbs but I couldn't get enough of the fragrant rice. The hummus was good, although the bread was a bit tough for my liking. However, what truly stood out was the exceptional service. The staff was incredibly friendly and always had a smile on their faces, which added to the overall splendid experience. Looking forward to visiting again!

Recommended Lamb shank, tender and nice, no regrets. Lemonade tastes too sweet, should just be added syrups, not so good. Overall ok.

Thoroughly enjoyed the meze tabagi, set A sharing platter (Lebanese rice is amazing so we ordered extra), beef beyti and mint lemonade. Would highly recommend it. The best food in the street.

Very warm service and delicious dishes here. This is the second time I've tried Turkish food at Haji Lane and I still love it! The only suggestion is that the mixed grill platter could've been given more rice since this is for two. And besides, none of the food is spicy, so it's also good to bring the kids.

You can enjoy bugis area (near Arab street) while having Turkish food! Turkish black tea and hummus are the must. Ordered mixed grill platter, comes with nice portion 😉 Taste authentic and price is reasonable.
