I was taken to this incredible place by my Singaporean colleague. He said it was the best hawker center in Singapore and I now see why he believes it. The Hokkien Mee with prawn and other meats was great. I also had the prawn noodles and was floored by the flavors in the broth and the size and perfect cooking... More

This is one of the places I've loved eating. The dumplings are amazing. The crab is pretty good too, but one of my favourite dumpling places so far.

Yes it's a famous hawker center . No it's not the best in SG, far from it. And definitely not worth coming there from far . In fact, you'll hardly find any healthy stall there : it's mostly deep fried food. I really wonder what's the magic about deep frying ??? There are much better local places especially in the... More

On the advise of a comfort cab driver I convinced my 2 other friends and it was excellent especially the Srilakan crab compared to some other places it's cheaper. My friends were happy on my suggested place.It's just a hawker centre so do have high expectations of a modern day ac food court. Must try the chilli crab.

This place serve great tasty fresh pepper crab and the price is very reasonable. However, it wasn't the best dining experience in a hot and stuffy food court with a lot of people waiting for you to finish quickly.

Huge variety of local selection. After a good 20 minutes wait for my wanton noodle, I felt that the standard have fallen as compared to the past. However, this place still draws huge crowd during lunch hour and parking can be a headache. With so many choice of food available, I will still return again. Hopefully the other food like... More

I have been coming to this hawker centre for many years. And over the years, the standard of the food has deteriorated from mediocre to bad.... The famous Hokkien Mee is soggy and bland. The two famous Wanton mee stalls are boring and so lacking in flavour. The hokkien tze chars are totally disappointing. The famous black pepper crab is... More
