We drank a few beers here and watched people eat over a couple of days before deciding to eat here. The service is "efficient" getting close being rushed. However, the food is really nice and it comes out quickly. We had a half Peking Duck which was initially served as skin only with a sauce, cucumber and small pancakes. After... More

Very crowded on a Sunday afternoon. The food was so salty. Overheard another table also complained about the food being too salty. Service was average.

Stopped in here for main course after starters in the street. I opted for liver because I thought it was traditional and not some thing you will find everywhere. It was great!! Food, service and price was really good. Give it a try.

Seems to have gone through a rebrand, but the place is the same. Go there for the duck. $35 for half a duck is great value. And they serve the duck with rice pancakes, instead of the normal wheat ones. They're great and a little different. Second course, go simple with Spring Onion. They bone the duck too, which isn't...

Great food in a hectic shopping area. Old school abounds. So many locals eating here you knew it had to be good. Pretty cheap too!

Chinatown is bonkers and the choice is daunting! So, with so much choice you have to choose somewhere. I picked this place for its location at a busy pedestrian intersection. The food was ok. The service was very good. The best aspect is being able to people watch whilst eating. The menu isn't extensive which is quite appealing and the... More

Clean, airconditioned, friendly staff and most important very good food!! Maybe a little more expensive than in the Foodstreet but therefore you eat inside with tableclothes and napkins. I have added a short movie on how the duck is served (says more than words)

I took a photo of the empty plates as we sat discussing the fabulous meal we had just had at Fatty Weng's. The restaurant is on a corner in the busiest part of Chinatown so you can watch the busy world go by as you enjoy your meal and drinks. The staff are courteous and quick to refill glasses and...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
