People go there for good, not pricey local food- like Hainanese Chicken Rice. The choice is great but you may get the same quality and even better prices at Chinatown Market Hawker Centre. If people queue somewhere, it might indicate that the food is really good there (or the vendors are slow;-)).

We tried the Maxwell Road Hawker centre, it was a Monday night not every shop was open but the food was nice and the prices were good. It was not overly busy so easy to get served and easy to get a table.

The chicken and rice at Tien Tien was great. The frid rice from another vendor was also very good. The whole place was quite clean. You can eat good simple food for a fraction of the cost of restaurants. We went at dinner time on a week day and got a table reasonably easy, although there were only a few... More

We like to immerse ourselves in the culture when travelling and hawker markets are great for this. We wandered the stalls and chose what we wanted. We were having breakfast so some stalls weren't open. Never seemed to find them all open - each day seemed to find different ones opened or closed. Breakfast was good with pastries - my... More

Had to have chicken rice somewhere, heard about Anthony Boardain going to this hawker centre and chose to go there. Had our 4 year old with us so went early, wasn't to busy, apart from the site he bought his chicken rice from! I bought mine from another one and it was great. Also had oyster omelettes also very good.... More

We have eaten at many Hawker centres, Warungs & markets and enjoyed most. Maxwells has a good vibe although very hot so pick a cool night to go there. We tried a few dishes from different stalls and were very disappointed with the quality.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
