3 compelling reasons for choosing the Newton Food Centre, Singapore

Singapore is a peninsula and therefore seafood is famous here. You can go to any seafood restaurant at Clarke Quay, China Town or Harbour front to enjoy that; or like the local people to eat at the market. Newton food centre is an excellent one for 3 reasons: 1. Location 2. Choices 3... read more

Didn't care for the experience or the quality of the food - and since we've been hustled here once before, we were very wary the second time around. Maybe we needed locals to take us here and help with the food orders but honestly even armed with food blogger reviews of what to eat, we didn't like what we had.... More

Expensive and small portions. The badger you as you walk past and when you order the food is mediocre. If you have to eat in this area go to one of the food courts around Ion Orchard, one stop away. A little cheaper and air conditioned.

We used to come to the Newton Food Centre over 30 years ago for chilli crab and satay so it was great to do so again after all these years and find that it did not disappoint. Can highly recommend this to tourists as a taste of Singapore and it is very easy to get to on the MRT by... More

Hawker food is a specialty that one has to try when coming to Singapore. Newton Food Center is one of those places that is located near touristic areas, so it's not 100% the real deal (you get that if you have locals taking you by car to more distant food centers), but it's very close to the way it should...

Especially great for first timers to Singapore who would like experience a wide range of Singaporean foods in one convenient location. While not the best of the best, this hawker center does cover a wide variety of food selections at decent prices and quality. A must try I would recommend anyone here is the BBQ Sting ray, but ask for... More

Of all the 'hawker' style establishments in Singapore this place got our vote as the best. It has wide variety of foods at reasonable prices and a good ambience. We went as a family and our grandchildren enjoyed the experience. If this style of eating is for you well worth a visit.

Apart from the obviously expensive items like crab dishes, the price level of the food available is pretty average. We visited at lunchtime and most of the hawkers were closed, but there were a wide enough variety for us to eat quite a substantial meal. All the basic Singaporean food items are available. The center is conveniently located across the... More

Food was amazing and the environment was awesome but expect to pay 20-30% more than a local would. The Chili crab and garlic prawns were amazing. The food in general was really good. The place is more for tourists.
