“Good food and many options”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

For a place owned by a celebrity food critic, he sure knows to choose the best there is in Singapore. Great food and ambience. And yes, can get crowded. The prices are a little higher than the usual food courts but guess since you get the best of the various options, why not.

Service can get a lil iffy especially when they give you the stares to leave early and not loiter.

Clean too, and you can soak in the awesome views. A must visit for a one-stop location for all types of great local hawker fare.

“Definitely a "go-to" place for budget travellers”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Pro's:
+ Great location. It's a short walk from the Esplanade. This is where you can go after a day of strolling in Marina Bay.
+ It's outdoor dining. So --- fresh air, with view, and yeah, you can be wearing anything and not worry about it.
+ Foods are affordable and there's plenty to choose from. You can try different asian cuisines at one go.


Con's:
- It's usually packed. So you have to search the whole area for a table. If you didn't see any, then go look for a group that's nearly finished and stay and wait them out.
- This also means that you can't stay long. No enjoying the food or the place. There will be a lot of eyes on you if you so much as try.
- Check the weather before going. But SG weather can be reallly predictable so if you're not sure, it's better to find somewhere else to eat.

“Excellent hawker market in prime location”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

A lot of choice, just try as much as you can. Chicken rice and lemon juice not to be missed. Delicious chicken satay. Fabulous location on the Marina Promenade.

“great view location for the price”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I liked the food served here. I mean there's so many choices to pick from it's hard to go wrong. I liked the Hokkien Prawn Mee, Cereal breaded shrimps/prawns, Gerry's Grill, kaya banana tempura, etc.
It is right by the Esplanade Mall and you'll have a view of the bay and the Marina Bay Sands building. If you go right before sunset, you can get awesome photos.
The only downside is that for dinner time, you need to make sure you get here earlier to be able to get a table (especially if you have a larger party). Otherwise, you'll be hunting around the area and kind of stalking people to see which table is almost finished eating so you can be the first one to grab it as soon as their party gets up from the table. :)

“A great outdoor eating place”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

An outdoor eating place with great view to Marina Bay Sands, Merlion Park and Singapore River! The atmosphere is joyful, as it's always crowded in the evening. A wide choice of food: from Chinese to Indian food, many drinks and deserts that are popular in Singapore! Price are fine, from 5-8 S$ for a typical dish and 2-3 S$ for drinks and deserts! Staffs are friendly! You can also eat out late at 11-12pm.
On weekend you may enjoy some performances at the Esplanade Concert Hall nearby after dinner!
My favorite place in Singapore!
