I've previously never been a big fan of Lau Pa Sat, but post the renovations I have to concede that it is looking a lot better. Visiting outside of peak hours is also a much mroe pleasant experience as it's not necessary to battle the crowds in order to get something to eat. Worth a visit at lunchtime though to... More

We went for the night time satays, but were disappointed in the quality of the food as well as being hassled to sit and pick a particular vendor. Part of the fun is to walk amongst the acrid smoke and smells of the barbecuing meat, all eerily lit by flames from the grills. Then pick your vendor of choice from... More

This is a great choice for lunch or dinner, particularly if with a family or group of people and everyone wants different types of food. So many choices from pizza, pastries, satay, curries, Chinese, Wendy's burgers, etc. etc. The pavilion is a buzzing hive of activity with a great vibe and all sorts of delicious aromas.

Maybe I’ve changed rather than this place changing, but since my last visit 10 years ago the gloss certainly seems to have come off the place. The satay sticks were still the highlight, but a lot of the other food is pretty straightforward stuff. Having said that, it doesn’t claim to be anything more so if you enjoy satay and... More

Didn't really enjoy this place. It's gets too crowded at night. And the quality of local food here is pretty average.

Lau Pa Sat has recently been refurbished and it brings a better dinning experience. The centre is now clean and well lit, with good amenities surrounding the place. Highly recommended to go and sit on the outside street area and enjoy hundreds of satay with your friends!

The building is beautiful so although it's a food court, it's much more atmospheric than the shopping centre food courts so ubiquitous in SG. There's plenty of choices of cuisine: Indian (veg & non-veg), Vietnamese, Chinese etc, even pig organs and a drink called "ice milo Susu". The food itself is cheap and decent, if not the finest you'll ever... More

It's a big food fest market with heritage building. Any kind of Asian food, name it, and you can find it all in here with reasonable price. Even this place is big and full, but not feel crowded because the heritage building has a high ceiling. Take a picture in some spots in here. It's cute!

This old Victorian building has been sensitively restored and refurbished and now is home to a wide range of small food outlets. Worth a visit.

Locals or Tourists alike, its a must visit for anyone who is into FOOD. Every possible local dish in as many variants can be found here. Post renovation, the place has a much better feel and is more comfortable. The satay street adds to the old world charm of the place. Dont know if there is any better option that... More
