“Great variety of different Asian cuisines under one roof”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch with a bit of food from Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, and cross cultural combinations. Variety is the key and the tapas sized portions make it possible to enjoy this variety without having to over eat. Asked for hot sauce and was pleasantly surprised to be brought a selection of six different sauces of which four appeared to be " house creations". Quality of flavor and preparation is very good but might be better at a restaurant dedicated to a single cuisine. However, if you are interested in eating a variety of good Asian dishes without having to visit a number of different restaurants, Hawkers is definitely worth a visit!

“Great food in fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

This is a very fun, busy, informal restaurant with authentic Asian food. They serve Tapas style and we had a wide variety of dishes. The food came quickly, was fresh and hot with good size portions. I would recommend ordering a variety of smaller dishes - you'll appreciate it. They have a great selection of beers and can give recommendations. Had an IPA which works great with spicy Asian. The serve staff was always there and very helpful.

“Excellent Asian Street Food ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

... and I used to live in Singapore (many years ago!) so I know whereof I speak.

Beware HUGE portions: ate far too much. A bowl of soup isn't an appetiser, it's a substantial meal.

Good service, tasty and authentic food (except no one I ever came across on a Singaporean hawker stall ever offered "potstickers"! I would have called them Dim Sum dumplings. Tasted good, though!

“Excellent Asian food, great variety of dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

My first trip to Hawkers and it was a good one. The atmosphere is lively as the restaurant inside is on the smaller side. They have outside dining but it was too cold the night we had dinner. There is a small bar, if you need to wait for your table. They don't take reservations but you can call ahead and leave your name. We were seated pretty quickly.

The menu has a great assortment of food from all over Asia. Great Tai choices. We had a wide variety of food - pot stickers to an excellent beef and noodle dish. They had an excellent cod seafood dish and I loved the duck as well. Plenty to choose from, you won't be disappointed. All of the food was very fresh, and the perfect temperature.

Great value, as I think we ate a lot of food for a very reasonable price. They also have a lot of choices of beer, domestic as well as an impressive list from all over Asia. The service was very good and efficient. Your food came quickly and our waiter was very helpful guiding all of our choices.

“Unusual and excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

My phone's GPS sent us in the wrong direction and we almost gave up trying to find this. Are we glad we searched for this restaurant! What an amazingly delicious eating experience!

First, major kudos to our server, Michael. He was patient and helpful as our knowledge of Asian street food was nonexistent. We ordered five dishes; all were very good, with three being unbelievable. The top ones were the roti canai (a flaky bread with curry dip), the green beans with an amazing sauce (not the fried beans), and the best pad Thai we've ever had in our lives. We also had lemongrass chicken satay and a pork and onion dish. So, we tried a wide variety.

We loved the portion size so we could taste several different dishes. Even with a beer for my husband and a soft drink for me, our meal was less than $40. We were so full, we had to pass on desserts, which was a shame because they looked great.

The decor was funky and cool. We can't recommend this highly enough. Go today!
