“Great find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This covered hawker stand is within walking distance of the Furama Riverview and the Holiday Inn. Recently updated. I joined the long queue for the fried kway teow and was well worth the wait. I ordered the $4 plate (medium) and couldn't finish it. Lots of noodles, bits of meats and seafood, veggies. Totally delicious! My lemon iced tea was $2 from another stand. And delicious mango pudding $2 from yet another stand. This is a self service stand.

“Little gem with quality food and low prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

One of the few hawker centres that is less visited by tourists and smallish compared to many others. Prices are still very cheap but you have to live without the air-conditioning comfort. Highly recommended for a representative range of Singapore hawker food. The ones that I particularly like - Chay kway teow (although the line is long at times, it moves very quickly), soy bean dessert called dofu fah (healthier version than the usual places as it does not add the calcium sulfate/ gypsum solidifier as explained to me by the store owner, my latest find in Singapore), fried carrot cake (operated by partially dead/ mute man), soy sauce braised duck and kway chap (Teochew dish made with small flat rice noodle sheets usually served with braised hard-boiled egg, beancurd and pig intestines covered with a slightly sweet gravy-like sauce). Look out for newspapers/ magazine clippings of reviews hung in front of the stalls and look for the ones with lines as well.

“Great traditional Hawker Centre experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Currently living across the road and the food is good and it's reminiscent of old Singapore and Malaysian Hawker Centres. Lots of noise and quick food tuenover which ensures freshness. You can also get a cold beer there. Don't forgret 20 cents for the toilet turnstiles.

“Cheap, good & filling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

Char Kway Teow there is a must try but if you're pressed for time, most of the other stalls are not too bad either.

“A superior alternative to food in Great World City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

Food in the basement of Great World City is OK...... but cross Zion Road and turn left and in 2 mins you can have something much better (and cheaper). On entering you immediately have (probably) the finest Char Kway Chow in Singapore. Turn left straight away and you have (on the left) my favourite Chicken Rice stall. The others are OK if this guy is closed........ but I think this one is best. Also enjoy freshly squeezed sugar cane juice with lemon.
this is authentic Singapore food at its best.
