Seafood very fresh but be careful that you get what you pay for. Some hawkers will try to sell you over priced seafood so make sure they weigh it in front of your eyes as you pay per 100 gramms.

You must experience this hawker centre on your visit to Singapore, it is truly unique and pleasantly surprised at the range of foods, cultural differences mixing with the locals. We avoided rush hour and had a late lunch around 2:30pm, no the queues! We had the fried kway Tao a Singaporean speciality, the chicken rice was to melt in your mouth, the satays fresh and tasty, roti with peanut sauce, the vegetables so green! All washed down with a cold icy tiger beer, you need this! Thoroughly recommend you do this, we are doing it again. Take tissues to mark your table and wipes for cleaning afterwards. There are ceiling fans but its all in the open air. It cost us sgd$15 per head including a large beer.

I've been going to Newton since 1977 when I began going to a school in the area, and it's still my hawker centre of choice when I return from my new home in Melbourne.
It may be slightly more expensive than other more-local hawker centres, but it offers a great array of choice and the food is generally of very good quality. Singaporeans will sometimes complain of quality on the basis that locals often look for 'best of breed' in dishes, and Newton may not have a replica of "mum's lamb roast". Having said that, as far as I am concerned Bee Heng Popiah and Heng Carrot Cake (try the white version with chilli) are outstanding, and the best of their kind in Singapore. Wash those dishes down with sugar can juice and it'll cost you $10-15 at most and put a wide smile on your face.
Is it touristy (as is the occasional complaint)? All of Singapore is, and not more so at Newton. In fact, it's typically filled with locals until about 10pm, when more tourists start filing in.
Newton has never disappointed me (except when my favourite stalls are closed! - I think on Tuesdays). Don't miss it!

I used to live around the corner form newton circus hawker center - I've probably eaten here 100 times
Enter on the bukit timah rd entrance and walk along the outside and right before the end you can turn in on your left - dont turn in but sit down there as there's a great juice stand and next door is the seafood place where you should order
1) bbq sting ray
2) satay but you have to walk in and find a malaysian satay stand as their satay is always tastier than the thai/chinese/indian stands as they use a better marinade
3) try the oyster omlette something different but a must try if you're in singapore
4) the locals say try chicken rice i think its the most overated local cuisine ive ever tried same with the chili crab a local delicacy - i would stay clear of both of them
5) get a chicken fried rice
6) get a bak choy or stir fry beans to go with the sting ray and rice and satay (beef/chicken/venison get 6 of each to try)
