Singapore’s Bugis district has a firm ambassador for Moroccan cuisine in Deli Moroccan. Bugis itself is named for the Indonesian Buginese people, who converted to Islam some five centuries ago. The Islamic influence is indeed strong in Deli Moroccan, whose dishes bear the imprint of Mediterranean, Berber, and Andalusian traditions. Indeed, Moroccan cuisine is one of the most diverse in the world, and Deli Moroccan’s Bussorah Street premises are the perfect showcase for these warm, delicately spiced specialities.

Deli Moroccan’s head chef Jamal is passionate about Moroccan cuisine. Hip to the traditions of this ancient crossroads of a country, Jamal takes his cues from the Moroccan royal kitchens of old, crafting dishes influenced by centuries of Berber, Moorish, Mediterranean, and Arab cooking. And Deli Moroccan’s location is unbeatable given its Moroccan remit. Located down Singapore’s Bussorah Street premises, off Arab Street, this opulently decorated restaurant with terrace seating joins a multitude of other shops and eateries all flying the Arab flag.
Couscous and tagine dishes feature prominently on Deli Moroccan’s menus, but diners can find a range of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern delicacies being created in this Bussorah Street restaurant’s kitchens. Lunch and dinner set menus are a perfect way to sample one of the world’s most diverse cuisines. Diners in Singapore’s Bugis are spoiled for choice when it comes to Middle Eastern eateries, but Deli Moroccan’s recently renovated restaurant really stands out. Choose from dining in the Moroccan-themed interior or enjoy your meal outside on the terrace, and allow bustling Bussorah and Arab Streets to transport you to a North African souk.
The best nasi briyani ever! the meat is sooooo tender and the rice is soooooo fragrant! i brought my TW friends there and they loved it! Worth all your calories!=)
Great food! Good food varieties. If someone loves eating Turkish/Arabic food, in my opinion Deli Morocan is a good choice. Not too expensive either. Right in the middle of Arab Street.
We ordered for 5. Mix Platter for 3 with the Lamb Shank, Chicken and Rice. Good portion size of people of 5 to share. The lamb and chicken with the rice is so delicious. Must have! The tangine beef we ordered is bland so could improve on that. We also ordered another dish - kebab grill or mixed grill (can't recall the name) meat is a little dry but otherwise is tasty and bread is super soft!! And of course must have the Moroccan Tea! It's delicious and calm. Love the cosy atmosphere. Service is good. They recommended what we should have so that's a plus!! Note: Address shown in booking as 30 Bussorah Street but actual address is not there. Restaurant does not show the restaurant name so lucky the new tenant showed us where the new restaurant is. Make sure new address is updated on the website.
A very warm welcome from the owner itself. Nice food ,nice ambience, worth the money... would like to go back there to try the whole lamb worth $150/- it is cheap.... it's my 2nd time there.. no regrets.
I went with family. Difficult to find the place as the address on the website says 30, Bussorah Street. As the restaurant has moved to another place on the same street, which is not updated in the website. The new door no is 51. The setting is nice and the staff are friendly. The owner of the restaurant came in person to greet us. We tried Kabsa rice and Bukhari rice with lamb and chicken. Excellent dish. Kabsa is better than Bukhari. We also had Tagine lamb kofta. The breads are amazing. Hummus tastes reallly nice and much better than some of the Middle East reastaurant places we have tried. Turkish tea was very refreshing. Overall it’s a nice place to eat. Please do not look for sign board for ‘Deli Moroccan’. Please look for door no 51. I was disappointed when I called to reserve a table. Nobody answered. Finally when my call was returned, I was about to finish my dinner there. But the the quality and taste of food compensated for the disappointment. Please try Kabsa rice. It’s aroma alone can satisfy us.
The Food was indeed good and it was equally matched by the service provided. The ambience was also a major factor that made us feel so at ease. I will surely bring my friends and family again..
Superb. Chef was awesome. He ran after us just to bid us goodbye. Food was splendid. Customer service was simply amazing. We truly had an enjoyable time there.
Great food but service is really lacking. We had to ask for water 6 times, as always half of the stuff on the menu isn't available, and the spicy sauce never came.
The food was satisfying (lamb tagine was falling off the bone!) but the service was slow. I think they were understaffed. Decent range of vegetarian options, which was helpful.
Good place, food was delicious and the service was good too!
