It is no exaggeration that, taste-wise, that this is still the best briyani I ever had. To be honest, I was at this restaurant since the 70s when it was much bigger and busier. But being a briyani connoisseur I compared this with several briyani restaurants from London to India to Seoul. This place really tops it all. Service is... More

The briyani here is overated. The staff st service are horrible. No communicaton. I order a takeaway briyani. But the server thought that i will dined in. Instead of packed my briyani in a container. He just dumped it in a plastic wrapped without any banana leave for lining. That mutton briyani cost SGD11/-. There's bunch of fat man sitting... More

If you got a craving for nasi bryani and prefer yours full of spice with your good cut of mutton nicely cooked, tender and peeling off the bones as you savour the dish..this is the place! Expensive for a single dish but go for it!

A great restaurant with a nice ambiance. In no way expect fine dining but this is not what they are trying to do. Spicy Indian food with great Birianis is what you get and at reasonable prices. Especially for Singapore. The owner was at the restaurant and is a lovely guy . Proud of his family history and what he... More

A friend recommended to my husband and he packed briyani mutton for lunch the other day. He mentioned the rice was a lot but mutton was too little. Today we deliberately went there for lunch, around 11am. It was not crowded yet as we heard judges and socialites would patronize this restaurant with 94 years history. It opens at 10am.... More

This place was recommended to me by a colleague and finally I got around to trying it this week. Quite busy at lunchtime but was still able to get a seat without too much difficulty. Had mutton biryani with some curds on the side for a cost of about $15 all up. Quite tasty and not too oily. Slightly on... More

Decided on having lunch at Islamic, has been a while since going for a biryani lunch. Islamic has been known for their delicious delicacies, ranging from Fish Cutlet, Mutton and Chicken Curries, squid masala, veggies, North Indian cuisines and lots more. Pricing reasonable and you will never regret.

Thank savingaia

Neighbourhood 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 coloured 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 Centre 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.
