Madinathul Restaurant: Superior Cuisine @ Comfortable Price

Madinathul Restaurant, located at BLK 304 Ubi Ave 1 #01-101, Singapore 400304, is among those amazing eateries where you can go whenever you want. That’s right; these amazing guys keep their restaurant’s door open round the clock. They know hunger and craving don’t have the concept of time. When you wanna eat, you got to eat, it’s that simple. Be it a hearty biryani or a crisp and scrumptious prata (we’ll talk about the food in detail, have patients dear foodie friends), you can have one, or as many as your want, any time you want. Wow, isn’t that amazing, a 24-hour open restaurant that serves authentic Indian Muslim Cuisine.

17690370_120300002955846827_1032056374_nAs we mentioned earlier that biryani & prata are a must have, they also happen to be their best sellers. Prata, Madinathul Restaurant takes pride in offering 20 different varieties of pratas.

But before we talk about the restaurant, let’s take a look at the journey. After all, it’s the journey that brings us to amazing destinations, with a story that really lightens up our world.

The inception of Madinathul Restaurant was destined and etched in stone when Mr. Hj. M. A. Shukoor decided to leave India and come to Singapore in the 1960’s.

In the beginning, he started working in a paper store and gradually set up his own book stall. Eventually, the Singapore government decided to widen the roads and thus, Mr. Shukoor had to close his book stall for good. After this, he decided to open a Provision Shop in Bukit Batok. But destiny had something else in mind, destiny wanted us to taste the amazing food he was able to prepare as an avid chef he’s always been. His provision shop didn’t do him many benefits. And that is when the events took a flavorsome turn and he got into the food business. Thanks to his love for food and skills of making some amazing dishes, he came up with the idea of Madinathul Restaurant in Ubi Ave 1 in 1989, after changing and moving a lot of food stalls.

Since then, Haji M. A. Shukoor used to take care of everything that happens at the Madinathul Restaurant. From buying fresh ingredients to training the chefs to tending to customers, he has done it all. When you put your heart and soul in your venture, greatness follows. And this is exactly what defines the story of this amazing restaurant in Singapore, the one that brings the taste of true Muslim food to its patrons. More than 26 years have gone since, and the taste of Pratas, if the locals are to be believed, has remains consistent. That’s the promise of being a food lover who also decides to become a restaurateur.

As luck would have it, in 2016, Mr. Shukoor decided to retire and hand over the business to a suitable heir. His failing health didn’t allow him to work and take the stress of running a business, and at the age of 84 years, he decided to call it quits.

17807170_120300002942942200_1693715717_nTill the time Mr. Shukoor was in charge of everything, the restaurant was always packed with customers waiting for their order. While Madinathul Restaurant serves a lot of Muslim dishes, it was the Biryani and the Pratas that took the locals of Singapore by storm. The restaurant has been a host to many film stars, celebrities and food critics.

After Mr. Shukoor took retirement from his work, his daughter, Mrs. Noor, affectionately called the Iron Lady, took over the restaurant. Among the seven siblings, she is the only one taking care of this business after the retirement of her dad. Born in Karaikal, India, she was brought to Singapore by her parents as a baby, did her schooling in Singapore & also holds a Diploma in English from British Counsel.

Noor is married to Mr. Zackariah & the couple is blessed with 2 beautiful daughters, Rizwana & Rahlaah. The father and daughter duo has something very peculiar in common; they both ventured into different lines of work before becoming a restaurateur. While Mr. Shukoor began his career with a paper store, his daughter, the now in charge of Madinathul restaurant started her career as a makeup artist after training from Cosmo Proof. Apart from being an amazing manager and a brilliant makeup artist, Noor also happens to manufacture handmade soaps & organic beauty products and candles made form organic ingredients. She is definitely a woman of many talents.

17741018_120300002959876248_1091479694_nAll the foodies can enjoy a hearty biryani or palatable Prata anytime they want to, but you’ll need to wait for a month if you don’t visit them in April right away. If you are planning to visit the restaurant in May, you will see the “Closed for Renovation, will be back in June” sign board over there. Ok, we made it pretty straight forward, these flavorsome guys will definitely make it delightful too!

The reason behind this renovation is pretty simple. Mr. Shukoor being an old school had always maintained an old fashioned style of ambience, which we found really cool. Noor, on the other hand, is a different personality altogether.

Noor is planning to give the restaurant a touch of her own personality. Being brought up in the cosmopolitan culture with people of almost all ethnicities working and eating together, she believes it’s the right time Madinathul Restaurant also welcomes the change while keeping its originality and its soul intact. And this is exactly why it’s going to be just a month of renovation.

17793047_120300002950459224_429271886_nNoor plans to include Western, Malay as well as Thai seafood in their menu. The menu and the cuisines will be available on scheduled basis, let’s take a detailed look at what will be served at what time.

  • Malay food will be served in morning
  • Biryani will be served from morning till evening
  • Thai Seafood & Western food will be served during evening hours
  • And keeping the old school charm alive, Prata will be available 24hours a day!

If THAT doesn’t sound like good news, we hardly think anything ever will. There are many other restaurants in the region, Chinese restaurants mostly, but Noor believes they won’t be a competition as Madinathul offers what these restaurants never will: a taste of real food.
