I know Singaporeans will say there are better spots, which is definitely true, BUT;
at night when they pull the tables out into the street, its a most enjoyable atmosphere.

TOO HOT DURING THE DAY TO ENJOY

its all about satay and noodles. I like the one noodle spot that sits in the middle of the road at the end (its obvious which that is when you're there because there is only 1 stall at the far end)
Currently 10 skewers is about $7....its no longer so cheap, but its always cooked to perfection and the hawkers are super nice and charismatic.

This is a must -do for tourists in Singapore that enjoy street food.

Food here is simply amazing. It did not disappoint whenever i come here to eat. Satay and prawn is a MUST to order! The Lok Lok stall is also not bad but could be improved.

Come before 7pm and secure your outdoor seats because the ambience is so much nicer than indoors!

However, food can be pricey and they only accept cash. So, come prepared!

Last December, my husband and I walked here after the Marina Bay Sand’s water show had ended. It took us longer than expected because we got lost and had to ask for direction. We got to Lau Pa Sat Festival Market around 9:45 PM. (They open daily at 7 PM.)

The front of stall #7 and #8 had the most crowds. Tables and chairs were jammed packed together. We were lucky that a family had just left, so the waitress quickly cleared the table for us.

Menu consists of several fixed choices. We chose the least expensive one, which were 26 satay skewers of chicken, mutton, and shrimp for 26 SGD ($19). My husband also ordered a large mug of Tiger Beer (5.60 SGD). They didn’t have any drinks I liked, so I went to the next stall and got a lemon tea (2.50 SGD), which was very refreshing. I loved the smell of barbecue smoke that permeated the entire area! The food was OK (bit dry) and the sauce that came with it was too sweet for our taste.

The atmosphere was lively with vendors and people looking for tables. I’m glad we came here for the experience, but I don’t think we need to go back again.

We didn’t stayed too long because it was getting late. We walked to the MRT station to get back to our hotel. It was a very tiring day, but we had so much fun for our first day in Singapore!

Even on a weekday evening the place was buzzing. Satay is the speciality here, and there were plenty of options on offer. The food to be honest was not worth the hype or heat and smoke. Have had better at mall food courts in Singapore albeit for a slight premium. It was also irritating to have the hawkers constantly hound you to buy from them. Those who enjoy crowded, bustling, hot and in your face probably would enjoy Lau Pa Sat. We did not.

Singapore is known for its Hawker Centers and this may be the most famous do to its appearance on Crazy Rich Asians. We spent the morning visiting temples and shopping in Chinatown. While it was a couple of blocks we simply felt we had to visit. I got chicken and rice and my wife got the dumplings. The food was great and we enjoyed the ambiance as well. The architecture is impressive and as a bonus the center is on Robinson Road for all the Robinsons out there like myself.

Really, truly the cleanest, best seating under canopy with ceiling fans and excellent food at a good price. Try the Indian food...I still dream about it! No other hawker stand compares.

The Food market was clean and have plenty of Satay stalls outside, all of them are good. U can either order the satays first and find the seats or vice versa, both will have someone take care of u. The people are all OK! Make sure u have plenty of water to kill your thirst due to the Satays! Please bring tissue paper as well.

Used to eat at the Satay Club in Clarke Quay but looks like most of that action has moved here now. Really nice Colonial architecture with a vast choice of options. We got followed all around the market by two food traders which was annoying, but they moved away when asked.

Just so that you know how this works...as we didn't...you order everything from different people e.g. one person/stall for satay, one for rice, one for bread, one for beers and drinks etc. So be prepared for a number of people coming up to you with menus which can be confusing - and make sure that you have plenty of small notes to pay the various people.

Once you know how it works that it really does, like clockwork, stuff just keeps turning up until you have everything you ordered. We ordered a selection of beef, chicken and king prawn with rice and it was yummy. You can order as many times as you like until you've had enough.

We had to wait a little while to get a taxi back to our hotel as for some reason they did not want to go to Chinatown but other than that was fun and tasty experience!

If you are fed-up with eating in closed ambience or do not like the typical hawker food while in Singapore & want to smell the barbeque food while sitting in the middle of the road next to Singapore Exchange building (after late evenings only) & want to catch-up with friends over a beer (only) or any other popular locally available hot or cold drink then just visit.
This a huge place with several outlets & common sitting similar to a non-aircon food court which remains open almost throughout the day (and night). It is central to Singapore & stone’s throw away from most of the famous banks & offices adjacent to Robinson road & walking distance from Raffles place MRT (exit F). The sea front too is walking distance.
Food is variety of items which means all sorts of local food, Chinese, Malay, Indian, Vietnamese, Filipino, Korean, Japanese, Vegetarian, sea food etc. You just name it.
There is a convenience store (Cheers) & few enclosed aircon places as well if you fancy a bit of exclusivity. This is a popular meeting place of InsightSuite with local friends as well as overseas visitors. Try it & if you like it I am sure you will get hooked.

We went to Singapore for the summer and our office and apartment was very near Lau Pa Sat so we dined here frequently. There is a good variety of foods and as others mentioned there is satay at night. We loved the ice Kachang here!! Also, one thing to note is that each station has a grade behind it that they have been given based on the cleanliness scale. This is clearly posted for you to view. There was a lot of construction going on when we were there but overall the building is beautiful and the food is decent and priced well.
