Newton Food Centre is my favourite food centre in Singapore. It is always clean and a popular choice for people wanting a large feast with their friends and family. I like that majority of the tables are outdoor which means all the smoke from the...food stalls do not affect the dining experience. My favourite dishes are their pork satays, cockles, chicken wings, chilli crabs and oyster omelettes. Yum!More

We came at 6 pm on a Sunday and found the carpark getting quite full. There were many families eating alfresco together, ordering a range of their favourite dishes. Certainly a popular outdoor dining place with lots of space and open air. There were many...stalls serving Satay, Hokkien Fried Noodles, Popiah, Oyster ommelette, Seafood, Char Kway Teow, Fish Ball Noodles, BBQ chicken wings, Otak, Chicken Rice, etc. We tried Stall 51 for their Hokkien Mee - moist and good enough. We bought BBQ chicken wings, Satay and Otak from TKR stall- all good.More

Excellent place to stroll around and grab a bite from several different restaurants. It's located right by the water. Definitely adds to your experience.

I visited at lunch so not all the stalls were open but there was still a good selection of food . My vegetarian biryani from vendor 01-44 was very good - bit too much coriander for me - but the mango juice around the corner...was the best ever - see photo ... I'll be coming back @fishtaleswithtimMore

Stay away from this stall. I ordered 3 local coffees and got 3 coffees diluted with water!!! Unfortunately, paid them without trying the coffee and it was the worst ever. We took the coffee back to them only to find out they made 3 in...1 instant coffee packets instead of what we ordered. As we questions them, the Indian lady pretended not to understand and just said ‘sorry’ . Don’t EVER buy anything from them as I feel , they just do not deliver what they advertise and are out to just take your money.More

Lively hawker foor centre with a great beer atmosphere has been vanishing in Singapore. Newton since decades ago had been a well known touristy hub for hawker food, beer sessions with friends and a down to earth Singapore street scene feel. Through the years renovations...and trends changed the many stalls here. Today, it still feature quite a few stalls offering bottled and craft beers, many grilled seafood vendors, nice satay and charcoal grilled chicken wings. Still a great place to chill for a beer and some local beer food, though seats are now quite limited, no thanks to social distancing. Teochew Fishball Noodles, Heng Chai Tao Kway, Guan Kee Grilled Stingray and TKR Satay and Chicken Wings, or Michelin recommended Alliance if you're up for some chilli crabs. Lastly go for Asahi Black or 1664 Blanc by the tower for $50 to wash all that down. Great value eat!More

We came here on a Monday at lunchtime. It was quiet and quite a few of the stalls were closed. However there were still a lot of delicious options to choose from! Not the best place for Satay, go for some of the other options....Prices were a little more on the expensive side compared to some other hawker centres. It's a short walk from the Newton MRT station, easy to get to. A must when visiting Singapore!More

This place is a super popular spot among tourist to visit and have they local food fix. Honestly, as a local I would really drop by this place to eat as well as there are really legit local food around here. Just that I will...really do it once in a blue moon and if I am coming with a big group of friends. Some of the common dishes that I will order: 1) Hap Kee Fried Oyster omelette- It is really very cripsy and there is really wok Hey within the dish. Waiting time is always between 15-20 mins but personally I think is really worth the wait! 2) Satay- This is a corner stall, located nearer to the washroom area, like how the Satay was well balanced with the charred ends and the juicy meat areas! 3) BBQ Seafood - Basically I am not really very picky with exactly which stalls because it's really hard to go wrong with BBQ seafood. Although yes sambal plays a huge part to a dish but I feel that I tasted better ones, so usually I will just order to get a complete Newton Food Centre experience!More

What a great food crawl experience! So much to choose from so we got a little bit of a few things from different stalls---satay, fried rice, veggies, noodles, soup, dessert! There were also a few people who tried to help get you food at no...extra charge. We loved everything that we tried. The drums and dragon dance entertainment was a bit loud but definitely delightful and enjoyable!More

Newton food centre is buzzing in the evenings . Last orders are around 10.30 pm mostly due to the sea food stocks running out .
