“Closed without notice until Dec 2012”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Tried to visit this hawker building for its famous chicken rice but it was closed without notice on the website or tourist info :(

Very disappointing! The tourist info websites need to have better updated information!

“Amazing Variety - Great Chicken Rice”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Amazing selection of authentic delicious foods like chicken rice and fish porridge. This hawker center was featured in Anthony Bourdain's show "No Reservations." The Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice stall has extraordinarily delicious yet inexpensive chicken rice. Go There!!!

“No-Frills Asian Dishes”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Maxwell hawker centre has none of the fanfare that surrounds the more famous Newton hawker centre, but it offers a slice of the wonderful Asian dishes. It is located opposite the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Chinatown and is a short 5 mins walk from Tanjong Pagar MRT station.

Must try is the famous caurry rice, which is basically a simple no-frills dishes served with rice and a non-spicy, thick curry.

Another must try is the sasame balls.
