Turkish Restaurants in Singapore

If you are looking for Turkish food in Singapore, you can find some good options around Arab Street and Bugis Area but you also have some options outside these centers. Do not expect the rich menus you can find in countries like USA though, the menu is mostly kebab, doner kebab, kofte and pide based (these are also Turkish food but does not reflect the whole picture at all) and you can hardly find grilled fish, vegetarian Turkish food ( like bean based food) or even the classic Turkish dumpling Manti. Almost all of these restaurants are also halal certified so you will not find alcoholic beverages (with the exception of Deli Turk where you can taste Turkish food with wine or beer like you can do in Turkey).

Here I have tried to list the Turkish Restaurants in Singapore. If you think any restaurant or establishment is left out let us know.

Sofra Turkish Cafe & Restaurant
#02-42/43/44, Shaw Towers, 100 Beach Road, 189702

Centrally located on Beach Road in Shaw Towers, Sofra Turkish Cafe & Restaurant offers a rich menu from Turkish Cuisine with nice ambiance and good service. Highly popular, this establishment is serving Turkish food in Singapore since 2000. It has also a small mini shop where you can buy Turkish food ingredients and Turkish products such as olive oil, beans, Turkish cheese and some Turkish deserts. Try the Lahmacun (which is served on Mondays and Thursdays), Iskender Kebab.

Deli Turk Turkish Cuisine
162 Upper East Coast Road, 455259

There used to be a very popular Deli Turk Turkish Restaurant in Suntec City Tower 4 and this Deli Turk in Upper East Coast Road is a spin off that restaurant. If you are in the east and want to try out Turkish food, this is a nice option. Unlike many other Turkish restaurants, Deli Turk Turkish Cuisine offers alcoholic beverages so you can have the unique experience of drinking your wine, beer or spirit with Turkish food. Try the national drink of Turkey, Raki and national beer of Turkey, Efes Beer (Pilsener) and also several wine options.

Turkish Restaurant in Singapore

Turkish Kebab House
#B1-105, Suntec City Mall, 3 Temasek Boulevard, 038985

This small bufe in Suntec City Mall is a place where I regularly go because I visit Suntec City a lot and the food here is very good. Their doner kebab is very good and you can also have a few other Turkish food there. 

Arkadas Cafe
 #03-02, Fusionopolis, 1 Fusionopolis Way, 138632

Opened by a Turk after serving 22 years in Turkish Embassy in Singapore as a chef for ambassadors, Arkadas Cafe is definitely in a location which is not central but a visit to this small and nice Turkish restaurant is rewarding. Although main course is mostly limited to kebab and kofte, don't forget to try the houmus with pita bread which is really nicely done.

Alaturka Mediterranean & Turkish Restaurant
16 Bussorah Street, 199437

Most people head to Arab Street to eat Turkish or Middle Eastern food and Alaturka is one of the popular Turkish restaurants in the vicinity.

Cafe Le Caire
#01-01, 39 Arab Street, 199736

If you like Middle Eastern / Turkish Food, Cafe Le Caire is one of the good alternatives in the Arab Street vicinity.
