Read and post reviews on Arkadas Cafe at its new address
Daily: 11:00 - 21:00
Mustafa Gungar, who worked 22 years in Singapore's Turkish embassy as the personal chef to eight ambassadors, just started this cafe with fellow chef Ismail Karasacli. Try the simple but tasty hummus with freshly baked pita bread and mixed kebabs.
I found a chance to visit the renovated rest. The ambient is much better. Their menu is also updated with yummy turkish foods. While alcohol is not in their drink menu for the time being, the friendly chef told us it is going to be included soon. Definetely i ll be visiting more often
First of all, please note that Arkadas' current address is not the one reflected on this HGW page, at the Fusionopolis building. It has shifted to a much larger location across the road to the "Sandcrawler" building within the Fusionopolis complex. Their website has the correct address: 1 Fusionopolis View, #01-02, Sandcrawler, Singapore 138577
I went for my third dinner at Arkadas yesterday night and as usual, it didn't disappoint. I was shocked to discover that they were no longer at their previous location and assumed they had closed down. Thankfully I was directed to the Sandcrawler building which may be difficult to locate especially at night, so do approach any security guards wandering around for help.
Anyway, the food was great as usual. What I like about this place is that food has been consistent (I know because I always end up ordering the same things), service is great, prices are so affordable (around 20$ per person) and they are now housed in a beautiful, spacious, greenhouse-looking area! Just perfect.
I'm not a big fan of the meats here, but I do love the hummus, the smokey mussaka which comes with my favourite butter rice (yeah it's rice but you have to try it - it's amazing) and the kanafeh which isn't on the menu. It's deliciously rich dessert made of baked shredded and buttered phyllo with cheese, topped with syrup, cream and pistachios, so you might want to order only if you have at least 3 people eating with you... It's not large but it's very very sinful.
So yes, highly recommended. They don't get enough hype here.
