    Good satays…
    Adjacent to the Lau Pat Sat Street Food place, the satay stalls themselves do not start until 7pm. This is how you should proceed: (1) Get there about 6:45pm and see if you can order your satays. We went to stall 7&8 but all of them seem okay. They will give you one of those buzzers to let you know when your meal will be ready, usually 30-40min. (2) At 7pm, the street closes to traffic and all the tables and chairs are set up. You CANNOT grab a table and set it up yourself but you can grab the stools you need. Follow the bloke setting up the tables and grab one when he has set it up. (3) Settle down at your table and go grab some drinks (4) wait for your buzzer to go off. DO TAKE some serviettes or similar as they don’t supply them.

    Favourite spot for dinner in Singapore!
    The whole family loved Satay Street! We came back here for many dinners during our time in Singapore. We went to stalls 7&8 which have the best reputation and also tried some other stalls which we enjoyed just as much. The entire food complex behind Satay St has lots to offer with quality food at an affordable price.

    Interesting experience- tasteful satays
    We visited on a Saturday evening and the place was packed. Our WithLocals guide chose the satay shop and I can’t say if it was a random choice. A variety of satays arrived promptly and we for sure enjoyed it.

    Must do experience
    I would consider this a must do experience in Singapore! I see how it could be overwhelming and I found the touts to be annoying but I suppose this is to be expected! Really enjoyed the satay and found the overall experience to be so much fun.

    Tasty cheap eats.
    Great food. Cheap and lots of variety, Singaporean, Chinese, Turkish, Indian, etc. Satay Street is a bustling crowded area with delectable smells. Vendors are pretty passionate about getting you to dine. Honestly, the Satay sticks were our least favourite food at the hawker markets. The noodles and dumplings were awesome. Lots of dishes that we wanted were not available. Regularly told that they had sold out but that also happened when the markets were just setting up so be prepared that favourites may not be available. Still, heaps of choice. Beer is pricey but that’s Singapore! Don’t even think about wine. It clearly is not a thing at street food places. Beware that some stalls, especially the Satay ones will only take cash! We dined here most nights.

    Midnight scooby snacks
    Went up just before midnight one night and still serving. It’s a myriad of stalls and you sort of have too much choice! Just decide, order, and take a seat in the communal areas. We got a buzzer to go back and collect when ready, and food was great authentic and cheap. Many locals eating there and great value for money.

    Al Fresco Dining Singapore Style
    Great vibes at Satay Street. Had nice satay al fresco Singapore style! Take care to choose the best Satay stalls or vendors as the quality of satays do vary. Later, you could walk a few steps into the beautiful, Victorian style Lau Pa Sat or Old.Market for ice cream or dessert.

    Satay Street low key vibe.. do it
    Great low key atmosphere. Get in and get a table and try all the foods whilst having a beer. We tried Satay 7 & 8, the one that everyone reviews about. It was good. The line is long, but it’s efficient. We waited 40mins for it (we were warned prior). However we also tried satay 6 for comparison, and I have to say that we both agreed we preferred 6’s offerings more. We had chicken and prawn at both. Beef from 7&8 too (which we really liked). But the prawns were more tender and juicier, and overall better char on both meats from 6. They also had a nice spicy chilli dip in addition to the satay sauce.

    good grilled meat everywhere
    Unlike many popular hawker centers, Satay Street does not prohibit touting. Staff from each stall will descend upon you soon as you enter their domain. Personally I don't think there can be much difference in quality or taste when every stall is making the same thing. We chose #6 and they helped us find a table. I think the stalls reserve seating themselves so if you move tissues or umbrellas on a table you will get scolded by staff or citizens or both. If you have a peanut allergy this is not for you. There is peanut sauce all over the food, tables, street...just stay away. Satay away? Go early or late for shortest lines. Get beer from stalls inside the hawker center. Bring your own napkins and/or wet naps.

    Busy speciality satay area adjoining Lau Pa Sat
    Bustling place adjoining Lau Pa Sat to enjoy satay of every type you can imagine. You'll be hassled to sit at the trestle tables of one of the many concessions. Service can take a while if it's busy and the air is thick with smoke from the many barbecues in this bustling lively atmosphere.

The many satay stalls are on the exterior of Lau Pa Sat hawker center near Marina Bay and central area. Lots of people when the stalls opened around 7 pm. Each stall has representatives with menus and prices, we follow the simple rule of "pick a place with a queue, all those people can't be wrong". Also figured the turn over would make the ingredients fresher/better.

Stall #8 did not disappoint! We ordered then watched the guy on the grills hop to get the satays cooked. We were given a buzzer, ended up waiting quite a while before receiving our satays. We got chicken and beef, both were wonderful. Especially loved the peanut sauce. We picked a table away from the masses, did not particularly liked the cramped satay tables set up near by.

Overall, a great way to enjoy some cheap eats and local satays. Checked off that Singapore experience.

We went for dinner on a hot steamy night and when we arrived we were greeted with fresh satay and cold beer ! I had also been searching for Murtabak and this was also on the menu. They assured us for two people the xs serve wouldn’t be enough. Nothing prepared us for the heaving trays of beef, pork, lamb and squid that was all like leather dry and overcooked and completely inedible . The Murtabak was really disappointing too. The bill Sg$70 left us feeling completely ripped off . We tried to give away the excess food but no one wanted it . It was the low point of dining in Singapore.

Lovely people, spotlessly clean and good food but really not my cup of tea: hit a few man made attractions then eat and drink if you can afford the latter

Very average experience. Close to our accommodation at The Hotel Telegraph but the satays themselves were dry and tough and that was at the most popular vendors there, pushy people and we got in to trouble for sitting at another vendors table while waiting for our satays to cook (fair enough, but it was busy and we were trying to get out of everyone's way) we ended up taking our satays up to our room, was ripped off a few bucks when paying, not the end of the world but do be aware of what money you are posting with, personally we wouldn't bother with them again. Very overrated.
