Probably is good if you like crowded, narrow streets but definitely not one for children. If you're young and hip, or not so young and still hip, then this place will appeal to you.
Didn't like the fact that large and small vehicles such as lorry, vans and motorcycles were trying to squeeze through the narrow lanes. Had to side-step up to the shop fronts and then, the shop owners weren't too happy as then we'd be blocking their shop entrance.
Visited on a Thursday evening after having dinner nearby. It was pretty dark by 9+pm. Lots of quaint shops, young stall owners who spread their wares onto the streets, or from their own vehicles. Entreprenours. The Starbucks there is quite interesting as well. So if you don't fancy squeezing, then can just have a cuppa and chill.
However, do take note of the time as the last train from nearest MRT leaves around 1030pm or so. It's quite hard to get a cab from there, but nevertheless, we made a speedy dash back to the train station via those trishaw looking but in fact is a motorised cab service that sits two pax. 20yuan (can't rem if it's per pax or per trip) to get us back to the nearest station (about less than 10 minutes journey but they do drive a bit dangerously).
