“Not as good as before”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

I have been coming to this hawker centre for many years. And over the years, the standard of the food has deteriorated from mediocre to bad....

The famous Hokkien Mee is soggy and bland.
The two famous Wanton mee stalls are boring and so lacking in flavour.
The hokkien tze chars are totally disappointing.
The famous black pepper crab is over priced.

The only saving grace here is the Toa Payoh Rojak, the

“Best Hawker Food”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

The Old Airport Road Food Center is a local Singaporean secret. Located away from the main tourist center, it is a place frequented by residents of the nearby housing units. They have the best selection of local hawker food I have come across in Singapore, and the quality you get for the price you pay is unbelievable. i will always come back to this place each time I visit Singapore.

“One of the best food centres to taste yummy local delights”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

This is one of the best food centres to taste yummy local delights. My recommendations are (in order of greediness):

1) Toa Payoh Rojak
2) Mattar Road Seafood (chilli crabs and white pepper crabs)
3) Chuan Kee Satay
4) Ming Kee Fuzhou Fish Balls
5) Nam Sing Hokkien Mee
6) Lao Fu Zhi Char Kway Teow
7) Xin Mei Xiang Lor Mee
8) Katong Ah Soon Fried Oyster
Lastly, finish your meal with a traditional herbal drink at Ng Tong Shan Herbal Tea, burp! :)

“PSA: Closed for Renovation til 1st of July”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Fellow Singaporean here. Old Airport Road is host to many of the best hawker food in Singapore. I am writing this review to inform would be travellers that unfortunately this Hawker centre is closed for renovation til the 1st of July as i found out to my misfortune when i was denied my gastronomy cravings upon being confronted with a closed hawker centre last week.

Should you still be around til 1st July,
Be sure to eat the famous Char Kway Teow(though arguably the Golden mile CKY is still better) and the wanton mee which is served in different manners by 3 different competing stalls in the same lane!
