Feast on Indian, Malay, and Thai dishes at Al-Azhar Eating Restaurant! Lightly charred Satay, Chicken Biryani (Indian rice dish), and Egg Thosai (a thin, crisp pancake) are just some of the best they have to offer. At the end of every meal, take your Garlic or Cheese Naan and wipe the pot clean of its Butter Chicken Masala like a true local. The chicken is tender, and gravy is rich—just spicy enough for a kick. Al-Azhar is an enduring part of the eat street of Cheong Chin Nam Road, taking up two store spaces on the long street. Students, families, and friends pack in around the tables day in and day out. Keep an ear out for some nostalgic stories because you just might hear the next table reminiscing how they’ve been coming here since they were in school.
