The place is overly-hyped, it is just another food court which had good days but now it is overly commercialized and they haggle too much. When we ordered crab, they cheated on the weight and this is for food what Sim-Lim is for electronics - both are not worth it.

It's been years since I visited Newton Food Centre, then a location where food touts were rather common. And while one might still encounter a tout from time to time (usually if you're rather unlucky), the renovation that was carried out a couple of years ago means the food centre is now much more spacious, has a more modern-look, and...

My wife and I visited the food centre yesterday as we had not been there for a while. The place was fairly crowded with locals and tourists patronizing the various food stalls. One is spoilt for choices here as there are stalls selling grilled seafood like squid, prawns, fish and chilly crab as well as oyster omelette which is our... More

After many years, went back with a group of friends for makan. At 12.30am the place is still buzzing. Many varieties of stalls selling mostly Chinese food. A few Indian and Malay stalls available but mediocre food quality. Food price are mostly overpriced but if you're hungry just got to go for it. Many tourists flock there to experience the... More

stall 31's chili crab was pretty amazing! Love the flavor and the sauce - it goes perfect with fried rice. We also had red bean ice (stall with the name 88) - it was just ok taste wise, but a good way to cool down. Overall, I recommend getting the crab!

Love this place and come here every time I'm in Singapore. Great food, good location and heaps of range of delicious food and very cheap. Easy to get to via the mrt. One of the cleaner and hygienic hawkers too.

Eating hawker food can get incredibly hot. Luckily we went on a Thursday night after it rained heavily. The centre was not crowded and we were able to sit outside with a cool breeze. Our friend even brought a USB powered fan! Food was, well, hawker food. With cheap prices. There were tasty chicken wings, seafood, satay, etc. The only... More

Good memories of this place from years ago promoted a return. Still has the atmosphere and great food. Take your time, order one dish at a time from different stall holders. Nice easy way to spend an hour or two with great local food.

A seafood lovers paradise for a down to earth everyday experience which is real value for money.Really enjoyed crab, oyster omelette and satay from multiple stalls rounded off with sugarcane juice. Lovely to just sit and relax with friends on an easy informal evening!

Been here quite a couple of times, very easy to get there by MRT. You can get good local food there with reasonable prices (seafood can be expensive though). However, this food court is getting more and more touristy in the past 2 - 3 years and it may get difficult to find a seat. The only thing with this... More
