“Truly Local Hawker Center”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We met some Singaporean college students at our hostel in Jakarta and they recommended this place along with some dishes to try. We went on New Year's Day around 1 PM. Easy busy from our hostel in Chinatown (Google Maps works very well, just like the locals said it would). We also took the #7 bus from there right to the Botanical Gardens, too. Nice way to really see the city and your Tourist Pass works.

The guys gave us dishes to try, but our philosophy was just to stand in line at all the places that had a big queue. We had wonton noodles, two different spring rolls and another fried noodle and beef dish whose name is eluding me. All were EXCELLENT in price (3-5 SGD each) and quality.

Definitely worth the visit!

Reviewed January 1, 2014

Singaporean friends took us here for some good quality seafood.
Great chilli crab and more.
Great value, packed with locals, not touristy.

“Better ventilation would help...”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

a gd place to go for local food as variety is expansive.
But food can sometimes be inconsistent in some stalls especially during peak hours.
N ventilation needs major improving.

“Great food under one roof.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

You can't go wrong at this food court. There are around 200 stalls selling all kinds of food. If you cannot decide which stall to choose, just go with the one with a queue of 3 or more. Almost everything is good here. Take the MRT and alight at Dakota and exit at Jalan Satu. Continue walking towards Cassia Link, which is just next to the food court.
