If you can't find something here to try, you are hopeless.

This is a very neat clean street designed to showcase a large variety of dishes. You can watch your food being prepared. There are plenty of table on which to sit. Every food rating that I saw was an

Ordered the BBQ stingray and it was served to me almost instantly. It seem to have been cooked way in advance. The dish was awful - Cold, tough and tasteless. Not worth the sgd12. The fried oyster was served almost the same way but it was more tasty than the stingray. Tip: head down to chinatown market food centre 5... More

Bbq sting ray was cold and hard, evidence it had been cooked and left there for a while. Oyster omelette (orh luak) was too salty and oily. You are just a stone's throw away from good food if you know where to go.

The moment we sat down. A fierce PRC chinese woman push our table further away from their restaurant, further away from the shophouse. Even challenging you to complain to the managemen, which I did return with one. But she just act innocent of her barbaric acts. I had the impression the food here should be better than hawjer centre standard.... More

Only ate here once during our two week holiday and it was part of a tour. We had to Roti Prata it's was very good but I think the roti Prata we got in little India was better.

You can see by the Chinese & Singaporean clientele that this is a good place to eat. The small outdoor cafes are usually packed and people are waiting for seats to come free. Portions are big so don't order too much - although it's hard not to. I came back here night after night. Best places for me were the... More

This is certainly the place to go if you're looking to try various street food and restaurants from several different countries. We stumbled upon these winding alleys of food paradise upon hopping off of the bus to visit the Buddah Tooth Relic Temple. We tried various Indian and Singaporean dishes and they were all great and very pocket friendly. Would... More

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.
