Jumped on the MRT to Raffles Station and after a short 2 minute walk arrived at Lau Pa Sat food market. Great choice of food. Don't just go for the Satay, as they will grab you when you arrive to do so, instead sit down and try different snacks from all the different restaurants/hawkers. Beer also available.

we just spent a week in Singapore, and ate at some excellent outdoor Hawker markets every night. This one is certainly the best known, very large and with good range of food, but the actual food we had here was the worst we had in Singapore. The Chicken with rice was tough and grisly, and the Indian food very fair... More

lau pa sat has degenerated to a tourist trap with expensive food, poor ventilation and people pestering you to buy food from them. you easily pay 50% more than what you get at hawker stalls. food quality is just as bad.

I came here to have lunch after doing all the sightseeing. It's a good place to visit when you're hungry. There are plenty of food choices to eat and cheap as well. The food court is also clean and have fan so it doesn't feel hot inside the food court.

Centrally located in the CBD, this is one of the best hawker centres to visit. Great selection of vendors, in modern facility. Always busy yet very easy for the uninitiated tourists to experience this way of dining. Open 24 hours.

This is a great location to eat. We had satay, noodles and beer here during the cool of a November evening. Being able to eat whilst looking up at the Skyscrapers in the middle of the central business district was good. The layout is a series of small food vendors who appear to have staff who try to get you... More

Lots of different stalls selling different cuisines, all really reasonable in price, much cheaper than restaurants. Plenty of tables so if there is more than one person you can all choose which type of food you want - you don't have to have the same. Outside there are BBQ stalls selling satay & other grilled food, lots of seating there... More

Lau Pa Sat offers a great introduction to Hawkers Market style dining being a little more western and modern than most while still providing a cross section of cuisine to reflect the diverse cultural mix that is Singapore. Malay.Indian,Chinese, Vegetarian can all be found under the magnificent Iron Lace Pagoda or if you like Satay then dining in "Satay Street"... More
