Service is bad, we were told to go upstairs and get a seat rudely by an elderly man. Person taking the order does not seems interested. And boy, the food is decent at best. Taste like any other muslim stalls. They have nice coffee though

Had Chicken Briyani, Mysore Mutton, and washed it down with ginger tea. Does not disappoint! Iconic Indian Muslim restaurant located at North Bridge Road which has been in operation since 1908!

Great lunch here, friendly staff and quick service for the food. Biryani was very nice, tried Chicken & Beef version. Murtabaks also very nice, tried Beef & Mutton version with Dal & Curry gravy.

Swing by in the morning on a weekday, the place’s clean. The staffs were friendly & helpful. We ate beef murtabak that tasted delicious, a good dish to start the day if you’re into indian food, the dough’s just on point & yet the dipping curry elevates it even more. We ordered the small portion of the dish & it’s still sharable for 2 person, costs us 4 SGD.

Long standing Roti, curry and more restaurant. Get the taste for authenticity in S’pore. Didn’t expect for the service so no disappointment gotten. Very tasty with Fish Briyani and also Sardines Murtabak too. Each dish came with a portion of curry to go with and they both compliment each other. Deer meat curry came in large portion but not tender enough. Nice milk tea and coffee. Air conditioning room on upstairs. Enjoy~.

Had the small mutton murtabak which was great, size was still very big for small. Also tried the fish masala which had great flavour but it was served almost cold, not even warm. Maybe this is normal. Would visit again.

Highly recommend the sardine murtabak. The chicken beriyani is good too. Price wise is reasonable, dont compare with malaysian price tho. Don't come during peak hours as seating is vr limited.

If your in the town area of Singapore and craving good authentic food..Good Indian food... Has good variety.. Halal meat available.. So is chicken, Mutton, beef and Deer. The deer biryani is available !! A bit expensive though. The upper setting area is air-conditioned and pretty spacious.. Upper area not wheel chair accessible... Good tea..Teh available..

Food portions are really generous here and the taste is was acceptable. Wanted to try their deer bryani, but staff said it was out of stock. Also, the place is perpetually busy, so getting a staff's attention is quite hard.

The food here is excellent. During busy hours, it can be very chaotic. I recommend going there on weekdays out of the busy dining time. They have a variety of Briyani, and the portion is enormous. So we always order small size. I love their Fish curry. The taste is excellent.

IF YOU ARE A TOURIST DO NOT COME HERE!!!!! Went to zamzam for the first time and was terribly disappointed. The mutton briyani rice($9) was so so bland and tasteless. The murtabak deer($12) meat was so little. Literally onion more thn meat. Packed kuehtiow goreng($6) and again it was bland! Ordered teh ice and it is sooooooo weird. Nil tea taste only color and the worst part it is $2.80 per cup. Asked for ice water and it 50cent per cup. Ridiculously pricing. Do not come here as a tourist. It is overly exaggerated and overhyped. The paying counter staff is so rude and shouting all over the shop. Unpleasant experience.

One of the best place for biryani you can find in Singapore. A must have for travellers to savour the traditional Indian Muslim food

I always heard about the greatness of this restaurant since i was a child. I cant recall if i ever came here before but i put this place in my “to go list” during my recent visit to singapore. Its a 2 floors restaurant. 1st floor has aircond. Staff are very friendly & service quite fast. We ate briyani ayam. Come with a bowl of kuah kari?/briyani?. 1 portion was enough for 2 of us (normal size adult). However no salad included in the set. We also ordered the famous singapore murtabak. Price of the murtabah depends on the size. We had the $10 size.. taste was great but quite too big for our tummy that night. We also “tapau” this murtabak to bring it back home to kuala lumpur to give to family.. they packed it very well & neat. Surely will repeat this restaurant on my next visit to singapore

Deer Biryani and Mutton Murtabak are great dishes. Those who doesn't like the mutton smell could try Beef Murtabak. Both are cooked with minced meat. Chicken Murtabak is a bit different as it's a bit wet version with chicken curry. Murtabak has different size, varied from S$ 7, 10, 12, until S$ 21. I ordered S$ 12, which is quite big and can share among 3 to 4 pax. Mutton Soup is also nice. Maggi Goreng came out red color, which is a bit odd for those who are not used to it. If you want normal version of fried noodle, you need to order "maggi goreng putih" or " maggi goreng without red sause". In overall, all dishes at Zam Zam Restaurant are very tasty.

Beef murtarbak is good, a good portion at $10. Only thing perhaps I will ask for differently will be no tomato sauce on the cucumber. Chicken Biryani was also good, for $8 quite value for money. The not so anticipated was the Teh Halia was not that strong, less of the ginger favour. The place was very busy, meaning good place for good food. 2nd floor is air conditioning, but quite packed and noisy. Do note payment is by cash, nets or bank Paynow/paylah. Credit cards have to pay extra.

Recommended to try the mutton soup and murtabak. It is definitely a must try Indian- Muslim food to taste in Singapore with more than 100 years of experience and history.

The restaurant is used to dealing with tourist (like me) or locals. Lots of takeouts by the locals and so the food service is extremely fast. They have many tables including upstairs with air conditioning. I was there early in the morning so get the front row outside seating, enjoying coffee with the pigeon, some traffic and close up view of Sultan Mosque. The Arab Street and Haji Lane are just across the street. Can't beat the location! The roti is made with right crispiness and not too oily. The curry dipping sauce is flavorful. Haven't had such good roti for a while. The Mee goreng tasted good too. This will be the spot for me to get my roti fix when visiting Singapore.

Food is ok, nothing wow about it like last time. Even though I ate here before, I strongly believe the quality of the food has dropped quite a bit. The price for the food is still affordable considering the location. The murtabak tastes not that bad but average for me and oily too. The ice teh had too much milk on it so it was more of a milk tea than an ice teh. Overall for the murtabak, I would rate 6.5/10. For the drinks would be 5.5/10. Service will be 7/10.

Generous food portion. Good value for money. Highly recommended specially for tourist who wants a taste of authentic dishes. 9 for lamb briyani 1.50 for kopi

Finally a murtabak that impresses. After being disappointed with the murtabak offered elsewhere, I had almost written off this dish as a fanciful affair. This dish found redemption at Zam Zam. In the company of Indian food restaurants in Singapore, Zam Zam stands out for its flavorful food and lovely atmosphere. Menu items strike me as an excellent value and travelers should not leave this dining experience hungry. Bring lots of hand wipes and mind your white clothing!

This is not just a makan place, it is an icon of Singapore! Established in 1908....they maintain their flavours for their dishes impeccably. We tried the nasi goreng ikan bilis, turned out to be delish! Also had their murtabak ayam, Briyani Kambing. All really good as ever!

This place is big. Second floor is fully air conditioned. I ordered mutton briyani, chicken chop, and chicken murtabak. They were good except it took some time to come to the table. There were little spiciness in all of them which made a child harder to eat.. Good place for a adults. This place is also close to the mosque and haji lane.

I came with great expectations as this is a highly rated tourist to go place for good Indian food. We ordered the lamb shank briyani, chicken dum briyani, mutton murtabak & and side of fish. Really disappointed with both briyani. The rice was wet, lumpy & lack of flavour. Have to say chicken and lamb were good and tender. Murtabak was rather wet and not cooked properly. Service was not on as well. Our lamb shank briyani came as deer meat briyani instead. When we enquired, the wait staff said we order wrongly. We finally sort it out when they checked their orders again. We asked for an additional side plate which never appeared. So we gave up and did not bother to ask again. Will I return? …… hahahaha

Delicious foods especially mee goreng chicken, fried chicken briyani and murtabak mutton. The portions are quite big with acceptable price. Got reference from a friend. Will come again if I visit Singapore again
