A quick and cheap (compared to the average Singapore restaurant) way to eat good food in a nicely chaotic environment. Tables and street food stalls are set in a nice tipical chinatown street. Although it's in an open air place it's quite comfortable because it's partially air conditioned. They mostly serve local food. The average price for a one course... More

I visited Chinatown Food Street after walking pass it several times after the renovation. There are a lot of stores and variety to choose from. Majority of the food are local food that I used to eat when I was a child. So since it's "brand new" now I decided to bring my family for lunch on a Sunday. First... More

Very expensive if compared to genuine 'Singaporean' hawker centres. This place has had a face lift to capture tourist trade and with that goes tourist prices and lots of tourists! It took us almost 30 minutes to get a table. The chicken biryani was nothing special ....you will get better in Little India.

When in Singapore do as the Singaporeans do and that is partake in the streetfood whether it be in Chinatown or Little India you will find great little coffee shops with chilli crabs and many other delights

We like the new shelter added to the street, shading us from the hot sun and the sudden rain showers. The stalls were neatly located. The whole street has a new vibrancy.

The food we ate there was good but expensive. There were no prices written nor they gave us a menu.Crowded and not very clean. Table were dirty and we had to clean it ourselves.A fresh juice vendor annoyed us to order, then we had to pay one more juice which we returned because we hadn`t ordered it.Disappointing experiense

Food's cheap and there's a lot to choose from. From chicken rice to chilly crab to noodle soups. Whew! The place is a bit hot though but its worth it. Or you can choose the ones with airconditioning. Don't ask for tissue/napkin, there's none. You can either bring your own or buy. Not all stalls have friendly staff.

Amazing foods at every turn for some of the cheapest prices I paid in Singapore. You really will want to return to this wonderful venue. Get one of your group to claim a table while others place orders.....a great fun night.
