    Not from my experience! We struggled to find cheap food unless we went to shopping malls and ate local cuisine then it was under $10/meal. Loved it there though was awesome.

    Hawker centres are real cheap. You will pay medium price $5 for a meal. If you go to some shopping centres you can find nice clean ones with food from all over asia. I love all the spicy food.
    If you ask the receptionist at your hotel they will direct you to the cheaper areas. Also a good tip is to eat at the stalls that have the longest lines as the food is usually really good.
    Just like anywhere you can go to expensive restaurants and get great service but the cheaper the food is the less service you get.
    Enjoy.

    yes! As long as you don't go to wanky restaurants. You are much better off going to the local food halls in the shopping centres, or the Hawker centres that are everywhere, open at all hours and super cheap.
    We just came back a few weeks ago. Prices are around $4.50 for chicken rice, $3 plate of noodles etc.
    If you want western food like Maccas/ pizza then you will pay aussie type prices

    I agree! Hawkers centres are cheap and the food is excellent. China town at night is awesome too. Singapore has wonderful food, at all budgets.

    Love Singapore and didn't find it hard to eat for reasonable prices at all. There is food everywhere, China Town and Little India are favs.

    I've been a couple of times, but not for years, and the food in China Town and Little India was cheaper than Australian food but not quite as cheap as some other Asian countries.

    There are really expensive restaurants, but plenty of other options if you're on a budget.
