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.

Located in the center of the Chinatown 'junk market' areas, and adjacent to the Chinatown Heritage Center, this hawker center contains a large variety of dishes from all kinds of Asian cultures.

Many food stall to choose. Price is average. It's difficult to find seat during rush hour, especially if you're a solo traveller.

The food street was bustling and loud everything you want in this sort of location, loads of atmosphere. There was a wide choice and the food was delicious. Our kids (4 and 1) loved it, because they went to each stall to choose there food. It was also really cheap!

Its a one stop hawker food place where tourist can find quite a fair range of local speciality. I would have expected more varieties of food. However, I believe due to the space constrain, this is not possible. In general, food are ok but a little pricey comparing to those you find at the actual local hawker stall thus I... More
