My family and I tried Satay Best 7 and 8. The satay was UNDOUBTEDLY great! It's absolutely delicious and you will want to encore! The prawn was amazing that you can't find a single word to describe its good taste, as well as the beef and pork. Although there were lots of people and quite noisy, the atmosphere was warm... More

I cant believe this place features in the top 100 list. How?! The place is hot and humid. Yes it might be where the locals come to eat but it stops there. Perhaps if its near and you really want some chicken satay then ok yes, but there are little other options. It just happened to be next to our... More

Lau Pa Sat ('old bazaar') is an iconic building in downtown Singapore, now used as a food centre. Its atmosphere is very different between lunch and dinner time. At lunch, it is full of local office workers (very few ang mo as it's not air-conditioned and not posh enough!), since it is arguably the best and most comprehensive hawker centre... More

Food are in general below average. Other than satay which are good. After extensive renovation, ambience is better, but food is still bad.

Went there for dinner in August 2015. Can easily be accessible. A large choice of food and drinks. I tried prawn noodles and a sugar can juice (for less than 10 SGD) and it was very good. Some people do not speak English well so not always easy to communicate. I recommend it.

A huge selection of delicious hawker food. There is certainly something for everyone here. I did some napkin math while eating the last time I was there and you could eat dinner at this place every night for more than a year without ever eating the same thing. Try it at least once while in SG and have fun stuffing... More

This pavilion contains several hawker stalls and various eating options. we each tried something different. Of the 5 of us, 2 really enjoyed their lunch while the other 3 were quite disappointed. I guess you have to choose the right thing! One thing we did note was that some of the stall owners spoke little English, (which was unusual for... More

Don't think it is as good as it used to be , some of the stalls have been converted into shops , but still enough choice of some great street food . Just a short walk from Raffles Place and easy walk from Marina Bay

Searched for satay following a long flight from Paris. Went to Chinatown first but there was only one stall on Smith St with an hour wait according to the stall vendor. After getting advice from our hotel bagman I visited Lau Pa Sat. Straight away you can notice the great atmosphere and abundance of satay stalls. Tourists and locals alike... More

An institution in Singapore this is hawker food to the max. Great place to drop in for lunch or dinner as you can choose from a myriad of different places to eat. Beware it gets very busy indeed to finding a place to sit can be a challenge. Food is generally good and very cheap so if you're on a... More
