Very nice place to eat. Authentical food from different asian nations. For those who like Tom Yum soup it is the right place. Be careful - very spicey not to say hot but full of flavor. Prices extremly cheap for Singapore and quality very good.

Always eat here when in Singapore. Food is exciting, fresh and delicious. Try the Hainanese Chicken Rice washed down with a cold Tiger Beer. Give the Rosehip and Carnation Milk drink a try. Satay sticks are awesome. Don't let appearances fool you. Worth going out...More

Very busy with many choices for great food. Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice is very popular. Best tip I could give is get there just after before the worker lunch time.

Review by Dr Sim, Good variety of food. Many stalls are good. Tourists should visit. No air-conditioned. Basic. Little ambience. Anthony Bourdain ate there. My favourite stalls are Tian Tian Chicken Rice and Porridge (cannot remember the name) which you can recognise by the long...More

We visited Maxwell Road Hawker centre for a cultural experience as well as trying some genuine Asia food. The food we had from a few different stalls was amazing. It is like a food stall market place.

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.

Easy way to get there is to take the East West line to Tanjong Pajar station and take the Maxwell Road exit (which should have directions to the market). Also worth trying, and it is a lot closer, is the Amoy Street Food... More
