It's a decent place. Basically you should go here for some BBQ item. We got the BBQ Stingray and there was no shortage of places to get it. It wasn't filling but it was tasty for sure. The place was smokey. So a shower was needed when getting home. Everyone is desperate for you to buy from them which is... More

I have visited a few hawker centres in Singapore and I would rate this one about average. We tried the stingray and it was good but the satays were just ok. I can't remember the names of the other dishes we tried, but again they were just ok, nothing to rave about. Chomp chomp isn't easily accessible by MRT but... More

While I must say the food here is good, and the atmosphere is lively I regret to say the hygiene and cleanliness levels here are really bad. When a group leaves a table they often leave behind bones etc from their meal directly on the table. The way this is cleaned is with a dirty damp rag, which gets used... More

Going chomp chomp for a late night dinner is never wrong. There are a wholesome of awesome stalls with mouth-watering food! We had BBQ stingray, Oyster omelette and Garlic Kailan this time round. Great, I would say. However, the whole place is rather smoky. Hence, you will definitely smell after you finish your meal. Parking can be difficult to find... More

Everything we ate was cooked perfect. The stingray, noodles, chicken wings were all perfect. Will definitely go back as the other food centres are too commercial, this one is perfect.

A good varieties of local hawker food at affordable prices. Pick the table, order and pay for the food, give the table number and they deliver the food to the designated... More

I grew up on Chomp Chomp food, living only 5 minutes walk from it. Open only in the evenings for dinner and supper, you'll find it packed with people by around 6.30pm. It gets even worse on Fridays to Sundays, and expect to wait around 30 mins - 1 hour for your food... IF you can even find a table... More

Many Hawker stalls to choose from. Must try stingray and chicken wings. Sugarcane can be ordered in tower if you're coming in group. Remember to tell your table number when you order.

Food is generally of acceptable standard, but better quality can be found elsewhere for the same price. Popular dishes here include BBQ seafood, satay, hokkien mee, chicken wings and the gigantic glasses of sugarcane. Although touting has been prohibited by law, some hawkers can still get very pushy (and rather aggressively too). Be warned that driving in, especially during Fridays... More

Go early as parking can be a challenge. Great food to be had! Try the local version of carrot cake (a savory fried dish) and the wonton noodles at the rear of the food center is a national treasure; savory homemade bbq pork on springy noodles and a generous serving of wontons.
