Watch the pricing at Stall 18! It's a rip off. Same food further up. Just as fresh but significantly cheaper!!!!! Wish we'd looked around a bit more.

Good street foods for tourists. The prices are reasonable while food quality is aceptable. This food street ís near by MRT station so it's convenient to go there from anywhere in Singapore. You should try it!

You need to go back and forth couple of times to be able to make up your mind...lots of different food stalls and lot of choices. Some just have outside sitting, some have inside air-con tables. Typical China town atmosphere, from cheap to medium prices. You probably don't get the most sophisticated food but good value for money. Definitely worth... More

The Smith Street is where you find this place, just adjacent to Pagoda Street.Visited during Chinese New Year and the place is all lit up with Monkeys and the crowd was huge. There quite a lot of options for the Non vegeterians and if you love seafood. It's an open air seating with roof and fans placed. Not much choice... More

Interesting for the average tourists who can find a variety of local food/snacks in one place. Easy to order, self-service style. Seating is no problem but don't expect authentic regional cuisine. The much tout about Chilli crab was a disappointment at S$40 per crab. There's nothing special about the sauce,but there are lots of other stalls selling their own version... More

Smith Street in Chinatown is essentially a food alley with not only typical restaurants but also the stalls on the street. You don't have to worry about vehicles, just people. There is plenty to choose from, obviously leaning toward Asian, so you need to take the time to check out what each restaurant or stall is offering. We focused on... More

Went with a couple of friends for dinner as we had craving for local food. Was on a weekday and not to crowded. Thought it maybe hot but the ventilation was not bad. We ordered hokkien mee, fried oyster which were good. Stingray, gong gong and sambal kangkong was not bad too. But the chicken wings was a disappointment. Prices... More

Depends what you select as some dishes are not up to standard.We had beef noodles and it did not taste good at all and its expensive.The yong tau foo was ok but not great but certainly better than the beef noodles.Wanton noodles were way better.The food&drinks here were over priced

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.
