We Came Here for Lunch
Apr 2021
We had a lunch here and it was fine, the famous chicken and rice dish, which turned out to be very ordinary. And this is just a big open hall with lots of food products.

Great Place for Lunch
Feb 2020
We really enjoyed strolling through this area shopping the various food stalls. After a lot of observation and thought, we bought our lunch and took it to some picnic benches nearby. A fun way to spend an hour or two. A Singapore classic.

What's Wow! here?
Sep 2020 • Family
Maxwell Food Centre is very well known intentionally. Cons- not the most hygienic (does not mean its not hygienic).
Pros- cheaper than most other hawker centres, some really good hawker food here.
Hawker stalls with a WOW! Factor arr:
1. Rojak, Popiah and Cockle. Large serving, Michelin bib gourmand rated.WOW!
2. Hainanese Curry Rice. Crispy pork cutlet and Shrimps. WOW!
3. Roasted Meats. Only Chinese name and green in colour, refer to picture. WOW!
Theres this stall selling oyster pancake, very famous and I tried it. Very cheap S$2 only but I can taste the oil ( which looks black). Would rather pay S$2.50 for a healthier one. All they need to do is change the oil more frequently especially when customers can see the deep frying oil.

Great Hawker Centre
Aug 2019
Our first stop upon arriving in Chinatown was to get something to eat and we headed straight to the Maxwell Food Centre. Anyone who's done research on Singapore will find their Hawker Centres suggested over and over as the place to eat. A Hawker Centre is a food court with permanent stalls which provide a great way to get a selection of food at a good price. We had the Tian TIan Chicken Rice, which had no queue, and really enjoyed our meal.

Well worth a visit!
Mar 2020
We were tipped off about hawker centres before we arrived, and this was one of the top rated ones. We went here and tried the famous chicken rice which was very tasty! In general it's definitely great value for money to eat at hawker centres.

Excellent Place- good food
Mar 2020
We went to the Maxwell Food Center near our hotel and there were a lot of stalls with a variety of food. The place was not really full due to Corona Virus.
We enjoyed the famous Singaporian dish rice and chicken and it was delicious.

Maxwell Hawker Food Centre
Nov 2019
Certainly a highlight of our trip to Singapore. It was a priority as a must visit and to eat at this famous food centre. So many food stalls, some famous and not so famous. It starts to get busy around 11 am and of course the line ups for special stalls begin around that time. Every stall offers an amazing taste experience, it's just that it is so darn hot and humid waiting in line. Best time probably after lunch. This centre closes pretty early in my opinion. Not too many stalls open for late night diners. Definitely one of the most popular food centres and so close to Chinatown.
