“Good but overpriced”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Worth a visit for the atmosphere but not worth for the food alone. Definitely living on its tourist appeal and past reputation. The food is fresh and good but nothing exceptional. And other than for the amazing variety of seafood on offer in one place you are essentially paying at least double the price for the same quality of food as in most regular food courts. Most of the stalls have very similar menus so again its more about variety of seafood rather than variety of cuisine or cooking style. The atmosphere is fun and lively but at times the touts can be a nuisance, especially when trying to decide on a place to eat. Ticked off the list but probably wont return.

“Great food but watch the cost”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

There are numerous stalls at this hawker market. We eventually settled on stall 31 with Mei who was a real bright spark as opposed to the hard sell of the other stall owners. BBQ'ed Stingray, Chilli Crab, and Chilli Prawns. The food was ultra fresh. you will see signs advising what standard of cleanliness each stall has been assessed at. Those not displaying this have a low level as assessed by the health department. The atmosphere was magificent with a Singapore flavour. I was told that this hawker market is not as authentic as the others as it has been taken over by new migrants. Make sure you ask what the cost will be for each dish. Our meal for 3 cost S$130 still reasonable for what it was but I think could have been cheaper.

“Historical venue for outdoor dining experience”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Great food but a little more expensive than the usual local food centre but it is a one stop destination to try out all the local dishes. The outdoor experience is great but avoid the area during raining season at the last quarter of the year from Aug - Dec.

Reviewed April 23, 2013

Complete rip-off. Ridiculous prices. Poor quality. Worst hawker center of Singapore. A disgrace to Singapore.
