Conveniently located amongst all the touristy shops trying to sell trinkets Step away to this street closed off for the purpose of enjoying Singapore hawker cuisine. Initially I thought the food may not be good but was pleasantly surprised! I had fried white turnips with soy sauce , hainanese chicken rice n iced dessert .. Yum yum yum

A great atmosphere with a wide variety of food to choose from. A clean, friendly environment. Chinatown food street is a middle ground: more upmarket and cleaner than the hawkers but not quite a restaurant. More an outdoor food court. We are here several times during our stay in Singapore and do not have a bad word to say about... More

We visited Smith Street after visiting local Singapore attractions throughout the day. It was great to sit at one of the round outdoor tables and enjoy a cold beer before wandering along the street looking at the numerous choices of food. We shared the chicken satay sticks ($10) and then a plate of mixed dumplings etc ($10). The place had... More

Amazing aromas, good inexpensive food take time to walk round and choose what you want. Some stalls busier than others, this is where I would eat. Locals use this foe midday meal, so must be good

The food here is pretty average & varieties limited. Also it is quite expensive- by local hawker food prices standards. The ambience here is nice though. Many are not aware that on this same stretch of Smith Street, there is a very big hawker (food) centre on the 2nd floor of Chinatown Complex. Here you can find so much more... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
