An array of cheap and cheerful Asian eateries and a well priced bar. Good place for a quick bite before a concert at the Arena, as you can choose from pre cooked or place an order. Chinese, Malay and Japanese food all available.

In the hip Northbridge area, this Old Shanghai Food Centre offers the visitors many kind of Asian and Oriental with hawker style a la carte menu. Affordable, fast, and most importantly, very tasty and good for the tummies. Very popular Food Centre!
