About Urban Bites

Ideally located opposite the Al-Abrar mosque along Chinatown’s historic Telok Ayer Street, Urban Bites Mediterranean Cuisine serves what its name suggests: healthy nuggets of Mediterranean-influenced food to Singapore’s hungry. While there are a number of sweet and savoury dishes that take their cues from western cuisines, the focus here is definitely on the Middle Eastern shores of the Med, with great Lebanese-style sandwiches a popular option among regulars to this friendly cafe-restaurant.

More about Urban Bites, Singapore

Please be noted that your table will be held for 5 minutes.

A simple bowl of lentil soup is a rustic way to begin a meal at Singapore’s Urban Bites Mediterranean Cuisine. It’s a staple for many people living around the Mediterranean sea, and its simplicity belies the depth and subtlety of this robust dish. Urban Bites’ Lebanese kebabs are famous among Chinatown and Telok Ayer Street locals, so why not go the whole hog (no pork in sight, we assure you!) and order up the mixed grill platter – lamb and chicken kebabs with rice, pita, hummus, and falafel.

Yes, indeed, Urban Bites Mediterranean Cuisine’s Telok Ayer Street premises, set inside a pretty shophouse in the heart of Singapore’s historic Chinatown, attracts a steady stream of locals and nearby office workers, nostalgic Lebanese and curious tourists. They’re here for the friendly service and, above all, the great Mediterranean-style food. The food, certainly, but sometimes just a novel way to cool down on those hot days in the city: in these cases, we recommend a refreshing and eminently Middle Eastern quaff of Ayran sweet yoghurt drink. By then you’ll be eyeing up the meze platters and booking a table if you hadn’t already.

As always Urban Bites rocks! Great food and great ambience. Friendly service staffs..reasonable price as well. I brought and introduced this food outlet to many of my friends and they too provided good feedback, so Urban Bites keep the good work going!

Sometimes long delays on bringing drinks. The waitress taking the order did not seem to understand that everyone at the table wanted to order a main (she walked off after taking just one order) - she must be new to the concept of restaurants Service from the kitchen was a bit hap hazard. The table was served with individual main course dishes over about a 30 min period. Sometimes this happens in Singapore as this is the norm in Chinese restaurants, but this is lebanese. The food was varied - the kebab/grills were nice but the other dishes not so great and the Mousaka was microwaved from frozen and still cold, and was returned. The atmosphere was good though, and the staff nice. Not rushing back, but may try them again in a while to see if they have sorted out their problems.

It was an awesome night. Went to celebrate my sister's birthday there. The food was great, service as well. The nice lady serving us gave us complimentary fries for my friend's order that took a little longer to come. At the end of the meal they even gave us desserts as a birthday treat! Will definitely go back and try more items on their extensive menu.

Service was pro-active without being intrusive, prompt and friendly, with short wait times and a great ambience to the place. Food was tasty and of a healthy portion. Prices were a bit on the higher side, was still reasonable but has some catching up to do to achieve value-for-money status ; it was a shame there were few soup options (1) and fish options (1). On a minor note, the turkish coffee was really good, something that has taken me a long time to find in Singapore.

Great lunch as always at Urban Bites- 3 of us shared the sampling platter, mixed grill, and shish taouk and it was more than enough
