Frankly I didn't like anything I had here. This is a hawker market, I viewed it more as a tourist attraction rather than as a place for good food. Some of the vendors can be quite aggressive. It was hot, it wasn't clean enough for my taste and the food wasn't great. I think many people think they will come... More

The market closed on 1 Feb and won reopen for 3 months. Being rehabbed. Great shame. It would have been our first visit for 40 years...wait til next year, like a good Cubs fan!

After being assured that everywhere you eat in Singapore its clean we decided to go to Newton Circus. You get hungry just walking around to all the food shops. Very cheap compared to Sydney prices and very fresh. Chilli crab, massive prawn, fried rice vegetables and stingray, yes stingray. Everything was great.

Me and my husband ordered grilled tiger prawn (3 for $36) and gong gong ($12) from stall #70. We loved their grilled prawn! Must try! For the beverages, we ordered sugar can juice ($2), and it's very fresh. I read the other review about tourist trap in newton. Luckily we're not have that kind of experience. The guy from stall...

It's one of those food centre where you can find all the good food at reasonable price. I was warned about not succumbing to the touting stall owners. Verdict: not all food are tasty. Most food are reasonably priced for the type you are eating. Not all stall have the freshest ingredients which they claimed to have. Search wisely!

This place is very overwhelming, with sprukers coming at you from all angles! Shop owners will encourage you to sit in front of their shop, more for the fact that they can push you to buy their food. You can find a table and order from any stall and they will bring you your food. Make sure you check prices... More

Cheap eats that are tasty! It is recommended to go in the evening, but it is open during the day. There are a;; types of authentic food from Singapore and more. They can even accommodate Halal diets. I would recommend the chili crab it is a Singapore delicacy.
