Really need to try this one of the famous shops in the Centre. There is always a long queue outside the shop. The price is reasonable and you need to go early because the chicken rice is sold out quickly.

Maxwell food centre is a must visit with lots of fantastic food!. Lots of typical local food to hunt down! The tapioca local kueh (cake) is the best even though friends tell me that there are better ones! It is soft and to me the texture is just right! The oyster cake is fragrant with powerful ingredients! $2 seems too... More

I somehow found myself Wandering, and came Across the food centre. Let me start by saying the variety in choices n types of food is unbelievable. I ended up going with one of the only Thai food stalls in the market and let me tell you i enjoyed every bite of the meal. Had the Thai basil leaf meal with... More

It is situated near the MRT "Chinatown" and convenient to go there by 10 minutes. A new MRT station is constructing by the side of the food court, so it will be more convenient later. There are many varieties of food types including the chicken with fragrant rice, desserts and drinks. Foods are cheap and delicious. However, the food centre... More

Maxwell Road Hawkers corner is a great place to eat. Good variety of foods including award winning Hainenese Chicken. It currently has lots of roadwork around it as there is a new train station being built. Definitely worth the time to find your way in and have something to eat.

To avoid during office lunch hours due to many offices around there. Many stalls with long queues. Obviously those are the more popular ones.

Way to much to single out here, I had my first coffee here at 5.30 AM cost 70 cents, most food plates from $3.50 up so my advice is to try as much as you like, We did not have anything we didn't enjoy

I loved this place. The first Hawkers Centre I've ever been to and it was fantastic. Cheap, delicious and bustling. What an experience. I'd go again and again but I'm back in London now and am craving chicken-rice. I also found all the stall-holders very friendly and helpful to a newbie like me. Locals might have other favourite Hawker Centres... More

This place is full of locals so that shows how good it is. There are so many stalls to chose from, you are bound to find something that takes your fancy. And it is so, so cheap - especially considering how expensive Singapore restaurants are! We bought lunch here and then went back for more food around six (don't go... More

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.
