If you want to enjoy street food with good taste and quality, try chinatown seafood restaurant. As its a open restaurant I would prefer Night.

They open for lunch at noon exactly and sadly I was on a tight schedule to checkout of the hotel at 2pm. I ordered the Thai Spicy Crab (not the chilli crab this time) and it arrived at 12.30pm. My wife ordered the Thai Beef with lemongrass - simply sensational with super thin strips of beef. Fortunately, she finished her... More

Basic street venue. Excellent for people watching. Very close to chinatown mrt station. We walked all around and this seemed the best. We did also eat in chinatown food street but this was better. Not the cheapest place but by no means expensive. We had 2 large bottles of Tiger, fried prawns, satay and shrimp dumplings for $62 but good... More

Tasty food and good cold beer at reasonable prices for location. Hit and miss with serving staff on two visits, very chatty getting you in, it's a shame they seem far less friendly once you've sat down, though this is not uncommon in the city.

Ate here twice during our stay in Singapore. Their food was really good. Authentic Chinese. Tried their sweet and sour pork and fried prawn balls. Loved them. Perfect if paired with their yang chow rice. The staff we're also really nice and accommodating. Some of them knew we were from the Philippines and spoke some phrases from our language. Nice...

We went here for dinner at about 8:30 pm and it was still quite busy. I have eaten here a number of times before and enjoyed theboisterous atmosphere. But the quality of the food seems to have gone down and more effort is being put into hawking customers from passersby. Our waitress had to be recalled twice from the street... More

One of the good places to chill out and bring visiting friends. They have authentic local food and cheap beers. Waiting time for food can be longer during busy periods. Most of the staff are friendly but most of them does not speak English so you have to do sign language or point on the pictures on the menu. Aside... More

A perfect dinner at this lovely sidewalk restaurant in Pagoda St at the heart of Chinatown. Although its called a seafood restaurant, there are plenty of other dishes on offer. We ordered fairly standard fare but it was delicious, fresh and piping hot. Portions were enormous; we couldn't finish everything, and the beer was really well chilled. It was very... More

Have visited this restaurant several times over the past few years. It has a consistent high quality of food, a varied (seafood based) menu and quick service. It is often quite busy which is a good reflection of its standards. Portion sizes are very generous. Drinks selection is also quite good. Price wise I'd say it is edging towards the... 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.
