Great Choice

I dine here often when passing through Singapore and am never disappointed. The choice of food is huge and whilst once in a while you might be disappointed by a plate of food, the standard is generally very high and most people order from more than one stall. All the dishes are incredibly good... read more

Food stalls along the street in open area under roof. You can enjoy the variety of Asian cuisine in a low budget. They have free wife... More

we stayed in Chinatown so ate each night in Food Street. The choices seemed endless and the drinks were easy to come by with very friendly waitresses at your call. It was so much fun trying different foods

If you are looking for anything from a quick snack to a full on meal in the midst of shopping or after a hard slog through the markets, this is the place to go. As much variety of Asian food as you could wish for everything from vegetarian, through meat, to seafood, including huge numbers of stalls each selling the... More

The street has atmosphere with many low cost 'street food' restaurants and people seeking out customers. It is worth a walk through but there are probably much better food options around than what was offered here .

This is a huge mishmash of authentic cantonese food and tourist traps. Do your research and you can come away with a really good meal

The Chinatown Food Centre embodies the best food Singapore has to offer. Here is a place that devoted locals attend on a regular basis, yet very few tourists manage to find it even though it is at the end of one of the most trodden tourist routes in the city. There are ‘hawker centres' and ‘hawker centres' in Singapore. I... More

Very short walk from the Chinatown MRT Station. A large variety of food available from the various stands lining the centre of the street. Ate here several times on our visit to Singapore. The street is covered, so we were able to eat while waiting for the rain to pass one day, while the huge fans in the roof kept... More

Great selection of cheap food. I've eaten here a couple of times and really enjoyed chicken curry noodles and Laksa. I will certainly be going back.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
