Have been here three times in the last month all for late lunches. I am not sure how many of the food stalls are usually open at night but perhaps there were less than half of them open each time I went. However, there is still so many choices, I'm not complaining, not when I can have an ice cold... More

There are a number of traders here all competing for trade. We chose the one with good attitude beside the craft beer stand. Tables have numbers and you can buy from any - they deliver to your table. But we decided to let trader 70 do the running around for us - she supplied from her stand where she could... More

Newton Food Centre does what it says, food is pretty ok if pushed at you more than most people would like, and I wouldn't like to say if all prices are fair having little to compare them with. I was however more than impressed with Yong at On Tap. A hand crafted brewery which doesn't tout for business and doesn't... More

It is a mystery to me why this poop-hole is popular. The food is frankly sub-par and overpriced, the hawkers grouchy and the ambience downright unhygienic. Moreover, the food is served on styrofoam (proven carcinogen and ecological napalm). Tourists, flock to Maxwell food centre instead if you want a dose of third world charm. My advice would be to simply... More

The in-your-face and extremely rude and stealthy behaviour of the hawker vendors gives this place a bad name. From the moment you enter you become the target of a group of extremely desperate and competitive stealthy hawker owners who will use all tactics in the book to get you to order from their stall. This includes coming right up to... More

This is a food court type place where different stores offer different food type. There are many repetitions and you can pick and choose. You first settle yourself at a table. Each table is numbered. You then approach each store you like and order your food from them telling them your table number. They will deliver your food when it... More

Food range is so so only. Bit pricy. Not as clean as before. Will make another trip to try out the food in the evening. Location wise is good with the MRT close by

I love Newton food centre. It is one of the most famous and oldest food courts in the city centre. I´ve been coming here since i was a kid and try to return when i can. the stingray, mee goreng and kaolin are my faves.
