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.

Nice ambience, speedy service, great food. Only factor is price. Otherwise a good place for lunch. Unsure though if food is Halal certified or if place is Muslim owned.

Food is great but took a long time to come (my guest waited 10 minutes more for mine to arrive). Service disinterested and slow, which is a shame.

The falafel salad and hummus with meat is amazing. We also had the ice cream sandwich and that was delish!! Will be back with my friends soon.

Great decor! Love the food. great mixed grill, and definitely recommend the lamb. would prefer more attentive staff, as it took a while to get their attention

The food was really good and authentic. However, there is a shortage of staff, hence they were too busy and therefore was rude and curt. I wld not go back again esp because our table for 2 was next to a big rowdy and noisy group which made the dining experience a total disaster.

Went on a Friday night. Service was overwhelmed by the numbers in the restaurant. However, the food was good and authentically Middle Eastern! Will definitely return.

Overall good food and ambiance, limited seats, so best to reserve. Some items a bit pricy, but not to bad, however not the largest portions.

Very pleasant service. Good quality was good, and variety was wide. However, desserts were pretty pricy.

Good food - tends to get crowded and a bit pricey compared to similar places on Arab street / elsewhere...
