Away from the busy part of Kampong Glam, lies the townhouse setting of Bumbu. Our first sight was a rather uninspiring (visually) menu. However once inside the setting was excellent. Took Tahu Telor, pandan chicken and a few other dishes. A 4 out of 5...More

Very nice old house with tables in two floors. Beautiful indonesian and thai dishes, and some interesting drink selections (no alcohol).

Ordered the Olive Fried Rice and Fried Mee Sua. Mee Sua was too oily and and Fried Rice was too salty for our taste. Prawns was treated with bicarbonate and seaweed has a strong sea taste. Not a good sign for a restaurant.

The restaurant in quite nice but the food is basic, far from the level we were expecting . We left the restaurant with only one idea in mind, find a place to drink a coffee and change the taste in our mouths!

Awesome restaurant and food. My PA was leaving, so organised a team lunch here for her farewell. I pre-ordered the food in advance and we were 20 paxs. Food was amazing, price was reasonable and close by in Telok Ayer Street. Totally recommend this place!

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
