I keep coming back here for the seafood. not the cheapest food center in Singapore by a long way but it has the best selection of stalls. Find a stall that is friendly (not pushy)

Love the Newton Food Centre, it is a must for us on every trip to Singapore, for fantastic Satay, and delicious Chilli crab it has it all, to be washed down with an ice cold Tiger. Vendors can be a little pushy but if you are after some local food that isn't watered down for the tourists than this is... More

This place has been here for a long time and there is a reason for that. It is a popular place for visitors and locals and harks back to the good old days. It is a large place with a lot of choices. There are hawkers pushing you to their place but they are generally cheerful and well intentioned. Just... More

Haven been frequenting this place for quite some time now. Though I always complain that the food here is kind of expensive for Hawker food, the fact remains that the quality of food here is fantastic. Firstly, the Thai food stall (should be the only one there) is seriously great. I love their pineapple fried rice and the tom yum... More

I used to visit this place many years ago. It was always fun with good, cheap food but a bit grubby. Now it has been cleaned up but the style is still "street food" although not so cheap as in the old days. Best for eating as a group - find a table, take note of the table number and... More

I had dinner at this place last Friday. Before that, the last time I ate in this place was about 12-15 years ago. It used to have a bad reputation: rude and dishonest stall owners who grossly overprice their dishes or pad the bill of unsuspecting tourists and locals, unsanity conditions, etc.. That's why I stopped visiting the place for... More

if you love hawker hut type food then this place is definitely worth visiting. There are many stalls offering a variety of Singapore/Malaysian fare. We loved the atmosphere and the friendly, efficient staff. The oyster omelette was great. Really enjoyed the seafood hut, which offered a variety of fresh seafood dishes. If seafood is not your thing, don't worry as... More
