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.

Came here this past January friends to check out the hawker food scene and it does not disappoint! There are tons of stands with different types of Asian cuisine and fruit juice stands and the area is very clean and easy to navigate (near chinatown) definitely worth it!

Maxwell Road Hawker Centre is a largest dining place near Chinatown in Singapore. Huge area with different local foods one can taste. Very cheap compared to other food courts in Singapore.

A must-see on every tourist's itinerary, this place didn't disappoint us at all. The food centre does possess a lot of character and we were slightly adventurous to relish a few dishes. The Mei Goreng was that delectable that my kids and spouse had most of it. I then ordered a Seafood Crispy Noodles, and of course Tiger beer as... 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.
