Hi I want to complaint about safe entry and temperature of incharge at T1 staff canteen on last Saturday 2 Jan 2021. I was been treated rude and shouted so loudly that everyone can hear for safe entry and temperature by the staff guy when entry. They will not in the entry for responsibility job, and was talking inside at the eating area. Please take note seriously , we are the customer, shouldn’t been shouted by them. We Was not treated politely.

Hi I'm a staff from SIAEC this morning went to T1 stall 05 to buy three mee rebus packets and what food staff told that only 2 packets can be discount as a staff prize . In the end i bought 3 packets . 2 with staff price and 1 without staff price. Feel so weird after hearing and need to explain this for my colleagues. Pls advise.

Hi Chin Hwa, Sorry to hear about your experience. I'd like to inform you that I have no relationship with Changi Airport or the operator of the stall at the Staff Canteen T1 so I'm not able to advise anything or do anything. Personally, I believe that stall owners have their own rights to set the terms and conditions of their own promotion.

Furthermore, I think life as a stall operator is not easy, so if there's a way to ease their burden, I wouldn't mind paying more. After all, it's just a mee rebus which shouldn't cost more than $10 per packet. Hope you don't take it to your heart, I believe they're just trying to make a living :)

Hi Eva, thanks for the info. For years we have been enjoying staff canteen at terminal 2 and so glad now that there's also one at terminal 1.

Hi Lulu! Yeah, I'm glad that Changi airport food is no longer expensive :D You can also try kopitiam at T3 and food emporium at T4!

Dear Eva... What time is the canteen staff open (Operating hours of canteen staff)? Because I will arrive at Terminal 1 at 02.00 Am...

Hi Kresna, I'm so sorry, I do not know what the operating hours are. But there are many restaurants that are open 24 hours a day at Changi Airport. The full detail can be found here: If you're looking for cheap food and staff canteens are not open, I recommend that you go to Kopitiam at T3 Basement 2.
