Good, but not the best

We found the hawker centre to be a lot dirtier than many others that we have visited in Singapore but nonetheless the food was excellent and the range was extensive. Although it was peak weekday lunch period, it wasn't crowded and several stalls were closed. I would definitely eat here again but... read more

I was a bit disappointed by this hawker market. I had spent the day in little India (my favourite hawker market of them all) and thought I'd have a late dinner so traveled to the old airport road. The guides books don't say any times but give the impression food goes all hours. It's not true. At 10pm all the... More

I just came here to eat Chili Crab in Mattar Road Seafood. I got 1 portion medium crab (actually it was so large) with chili sauce. It was really good. one portion for 2 pax. It was more than enough. You can eat it with rice or

Though quality of some stalls have dipped, its still one of the better hawker centres to go for food. Many popular stalls that locals go to are still there, like the Fried Kway Tiao, Fried Oyster, Lor Mee, Steam Fish, Traditional Cookie stall, rojak stall, prawn mee stall, wanton mee stall and claypot stall are still the same cooks.

Crowded with locals my native friend took me here to try various items on my food list. Difficult to negotiate if you don't speak Chinese but the food was plentiful and cheap nothing earth shattering and likely not healthy. But I would go back. Tip. Bring your own toilet paper as they do not exist in these stalls.

Used to love this place but even the locals seem to be deserting it. Not busy during evening dinner hour last sat. (Feb 14). Food quality down and prices up. I don't think it's worth the hike out there anymore. If you want that suburban all Singapore experience try Serangoon Gardens Food Center (Chomp Chomp).

Well worth the taxi drive into the Suburbs to find a local haunt, not frequented by tourists and selling great food at local prices. We had been to the Mud Crab specialists stall on past visits and this occasion was as memorable as those previous. The Chilli Mud crab and the White pepper mud crab were cooked to perfection. The...

This is it. Singapore in a nutshell. They have a complete variety of all sorts of food you're looking for. Why travel far when you have it all at a neighborhood food center?

It a must try for this hawker that is located near to Mountbatten MRT and walking distance to this hawker. There are too many nice food in this hawker, cha kway tiao, fried carrot cake, satay, bbq chicken wing, soya bean curd......etc. Too many to mention, highly recommended if you are look for great hawker food.

We went there for the experience. I ordered prawn noodles while hubby got the pork ribs noodles from Albert's Noodles (not sure if I got the name right) and it did not disappoint. The food was really good.
