Not sure, but if you need a mortgage to eat, then go here. Small portions, standard faire, and sauces, etc. People who don't know good food go here. Totally not worth the price for the food...

We went because of the fabulous reviews and were completely underwhelmed. Food was good but not all that special. Space is stripped down and not very nice. Long waits for tables. This is a place to be cool, but why bother?

My mouth waters every time I think of Hawker Fare. It is SO yummy. Everything we got was fabulous, but my favorite was the papaya salad. Perfect combo of sweet, sour, savory, and spicy with a mix of textures. Love eating everything with sticky rice....More

This is the only place in Oakland where you can get authentic Singaporean food. Nice service and the food is good. I have been to Singapore and think it's decent, but not outstanding. The Blistered Green beans are worthy of an order. They had a...More

Inside Hawker Fare is very casual with folding chairs and three rows of communal tables, but the menu and food are well priced, varied and delicious! Two of us began with pineapple jello shots-which were house made and not the jello shots of your college...More
