We have visited Singapore many times as we have family living there. Tried The Maxwell Road Hawker Centre, by far the busiest and largest we have been to. Lots of tourists and lots of locals, big queues for the 'chicken rice' at the stall recommended by top chefs. However the chicken rice at other outlets are just as good without... More

Great varieties of food, from chicken rice to fried hokkien prawn mee, Nasi Lemak and prata. Lots of choices, one of the best hawker center!

This hawker centre is one of the best in SG. Many stalls selling cheap and good food, much loved by locals and visitors alike. Don't just eat Tian Tian Chicken Rice... Shld also sample 1) Zhen Zhen's Porridge and Raw Fish, 2) China Street's Chinese Sausage, and 3) Lim Kee (Orchard)'s Banana Fritters. They are the best in Singapore IMHO.

What's makes this place stand out from the rest is that you get to queue for half an hour to get a delicious chicken rice or if you like something soup based, there is this famous fish noodle soup. I tried both of them and they were excellent. I hardly used the word excellent for hawkers food but these two... More

Quite a surprise this doesn't make the top of the list, the crowd and the make up of the place may feel overwhelmed at first. But it boasts an enormous number of food choices, I had to pick by looking out for stalls with long lineups or newspaper coverage/food critic postings. According to guide book, the best place should have... More

The Maxwell Road Hawker Centre is situated close to Chinatown. It boasts an extensive variety of foods ranging from Malaysian, Chinese, Indian, Singaporean, and much much more. I recommend coming in with an open mind and an eagerness to try new things. There is just so much food to try! Meals are a steal - you can have breakfast, lunch,... More

We discovered this gem on a previous visit, and were drooling at the chance to come back. Peanut pancakes, fresh fruit, and "kopi" for breakfast, duck with noodles for lunch, Hainan chicken for dinner ... or go for vegetarian or Halal or curry or ... you get the idea. The food doesn't disappoint, and the best part is that 2... More

We got there a bit late, and the majority of stalls were shut. But had standard, chicken and rice, plus some basics. If all were open it would have been excellent range if choices. Next time we will plan better, but looks like a good site for food.

Don't be daunted by this crowded, buzzing hawker centre. It was my first time here and being alone, at first I felt a little overawed by the crowds and food choices, however I took a deep breath and joined the throng. My meal of choice was dark carrot cake, which is not carrot cake as we westerners know it. To... More

If you're into Asian food, then the Maxwell Road Hawker Centre is a treat - one of many in Singapore. Forget your fancy restaurants that charge a fortune for their take on satay and where you get no change from a $20 for a beer - go here instead. LOADS of stalls and different kinds of food to choose from,... More
