I first came here in 1973 during a brief stopover in Singapore on my way to more distant lands. If I recall correctly, this was then called Newton Circus. I remember sitting down at an al fresco table and eating a plate of chili crab from one of the stalls, mainly with my fingers and making an incredible mess of... More

Were recommended this food centre by a friend of ours. Conveniently located right next to Newton MRT Station. It was overcrowded during dinner time and it was a bit hard to find a table. There were plenty of stalls to choose. We ordered BBQ stingray with sambal sauce, bak kuh teh soup, pork satay, rice with BBQ pork, and ice... More

We loved the outdoor atmosphere and the huge amount of choice at this place. While the seafood was quite expensive the beef, chicken, noodle etc dishes were all reasonably priced and the outdoor dining was very enjoyable. Based on earlier reviews we read we expected to be swarmed by hawkers but it was not at all like that, if anything... More

Family love this place. The open layout means they can scatter in all directions to pick up their favourites. Beware seafood here is pricy so best choose other dishes.

We think this is the best food centre in Singapore for many reasons although out of the main city centre it doesn't attract as many tourists as the Maxwell food centre for instance. We have visited this place on previous trips to the city and it seems to be used more by locals than visitors. There are Europeans and others... More

Vast array of food on offer from vendors who are eager for your business but not too pushy. Plenty of tables were available around 6.30pm on a Sunday night. A good way to eat great food at bargain prices, providing you are OK with the heat and the absence of wine.

Old Newtons Circus food place you could get turtle, frogs by the bucket, snake, marine iguana etc for a couple of dollars. Nice to see we could still get something different and still tasty in stingray. Even though they still have a stall selling frogs, they don't cook it like they used to. Nice food and fun people around, go... More

Although this is now truly a tourist destination, what strikes you is how many Asian people eat there... A sure sign that the food is great. The venue is clean, friendly and always with a spare table, and there is so much choice of Singaporean food. Our favourite: the satays (some are great, others are sublime, so do try different...

Newly renovated, brighter and more airy. Still the same stalls of halal BBQ seafood enjoyed by local and different nationalities of tourists. I'm here for the 'Heng' oyster omelette and fried carrot (actually radish) cake. The queue was so long that I had to wait for more than 30mins. It's all worth it.

Newly renovated and everything was really nice🌱. The food are great but this centre is not good for rainy season.
