A fusion of Asian carte du jour! Cheap but yummy. Most meals are at S$4 and below. For those who are on a budget but picky on food.

Give this a miss. It is overly crowded, the stalls are a mixed bag. The good ones have ridiculously long queues and the mediocre ones are deserted.

Great spot in Chinatown that friends got us on to. Good authentic street food where if you can grab a table you can simply just relax with a few coldies and eat to you can't anymore on the many dishes surrounding you. I love a spot where you go and the stall owner stops you to say you have given... More

So much choice here. I came here for lunch and it took me over 20 mins to walk around and choose which vendor and which food I wanted. Settled on some Japanese fried chicken in the end which was delicious and filling.

Went there to seek out the 'famous' chicken rice - it was over rated. We went around 3 in the afternoon so between lunch and dinner many places were closed. There is a good variety of local street food

We visited this center twice during our visit to Singapore. We enjoyed the local food. It is large, but quite crowded. Visitors must be patient in order to obtain a table

So many people had told us to eat here and we were not disappointed with the food. Its quite a large place and we couldn't remember which places had been recommended so looked for the locals and went for the busiest stall that sold Chicken & Rice.

Hundreds of vendors Find the longest line and order whatever the people in front of you order. Look for the deep fried bananas. Finding a table at lunchtime is near impossible. Worth the search. Elderly folks sell you a package of tissues for $1 which reserves a seat for you so you can look for food.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
