Good for residents!
Not exactly a place one would go for shopping, but it does have its treasures.
There is a small shop on the ground floor that sells some cheap and nice notebooks (designs comparable to their more expensive counterparts) that are great as gifts! There's also a stationery shop which makes it good for students like me to stock up on pens and notebooks/files!
Probably a little small/boring for people to come all the way here but It's good for the residents around the area because we no longer have to go to Lot 1 just for groceries or food!
Doesn't really count as a mall
Previously, there wasn't even a mall in Yew Tee until just a few years ago. Many would have gone to the nearest shopping mall at Lot 1, which is 1 station away from Yew Tee. However, with Yew Tee Point, it has indeed brought much convenience to the residents. The Fairprice was shifted to the basement and it has become larger than the previous one. Also, there are now more shops and fast food restaurants in Yew Tee, and residents can save the trouble to travel to another shopping mall.
Until now, I still don't consider Yew Tee Point as a shopping mall. Honestly, there is nothing much for you to shop. Rather it should be called a food mall. There are just too many restaurants and food courts around Yew Tee MRT and ironically, I have difficulty choosing what to eat. However, I am truly satisfied that I can now conveniently buy a cup of Gongcha as the shop is now a walking distance from my house.
Yew Tee Point is not one of those happening places where people would travel all the way from the east for. It is just like any heartland malls which caters to people who are staying in that area. They've got eateries, food court, supermarket, hair salon, tuition centers, etc.
It is a one stop place for people who stay around Yew Tee as they can eat there, buy their groceries there, etc. It is just a typical neighborhood mall and nothing worth to shout about. But still, it brings about a lot of convenience for the people in Yew Tee.
Needs more happening tenants
I was here to tutor at a tution centre a few times. Spacious is the word that I could use to describe it.
There is a gelato shop at the first level in front of Stalford Tuition Centre. The gelato is so, so but if you enjoy Vietnamese Drip Coffee, they have quite a good selection of beans to choose from. Near the entrance, there is a cafe of sorts selling halal local fare. Try the chicken fried rice, it is good.
Other than that, it is a neighbourhood mall built for the convenience of residents. You'll have to go elsewhere if excitement is what you are after.
I visited Yew Tee Point in the early half of this year. One of my closer cousins live near there, and I had to help me get some food (he was ill at that time and I was feeling sorry for him). I have never been to this part of Singapore before, and was rather intrigued to find out what it looked like.
In my opinion, this place is just like any other shopping mall in a heartland area. You can find your usual suspects - fast food restaurants, a food centre, the occasional retail store. Pretty average. Plenty of secondary school students come here after their lessons to hang out as well, so it can get pretty rowdy on weekday afternoons.
Your typical place.
A great heartland mall.
I don't stay in this area, but i really enjoyed my time at this mall. They have many shops selling different types of things to cater to the needs of the neighbourhood. The supermarket there is also very convenient for the neighborhood to get their groceries from.
They also have a large array of food stalls in the basement, residents would never worry about little or no variety of food. The clothing shops there also sell cheap and fashionable goods, and the atrium there is also used for sales. Recently during the mid autumn festival, temp stalls were placed there selling different mooncakes.
Having such a well equipped shopping mall in the neighborhood, i envy the residents there.
The basement of Yew tee point is nothing but food, food and many food. There are quite a few bakery shops that sell delicious pastries. Almost all the fast-food restaurants can be found there as well.
My secondary school is really near Yew tee point and during those days, my friends and I would always wander in Yew tee point to settle our lunch. There's this shop (forgot what's the name) at the basement of Yew tee point selling BBQ chicken, it is our all time favourite shop to settle a meal. The food they sell are really reasonable and I believe that it is to cater to the students schooling nearby.
Yew tee point is one of the place I hang out with my friends after school to have a meal. Therefore, it is usually crowded with students as there are quite a number of neighbourhood schools nearby.
Lots of food to choose from
It seems to me as though the only reason people come here is for the food because there almost isn't anything else here other than the food. There's a lot of restaurants here but I prefer the food court because of the sambal chicken. There's a stall that is popular for its chicken curry but I go there for their sambal chicken. They serve really huge drumsticks for both items.
Besides that, there's lots of other options to consider while eating here. There are many snacks stalls at the basement and bakeries like Crystal Jade Bakery and Emicakes. Not a bad choice for lunch/dinner.
Epitomizes a heartland mall
Yewtee is a place of fond memories and light coffee.
Or at least that's what I'd think it to be. I used to study in a school in that area and Yewtee easily became a regular hangout. I have lost track of the number of times that the McDonald's there became my hide-out from school. Good times, good times.
But that besides, Yewtee is out to disappoint. There are a lot of common eateries here but nothing that'll excite your tastebuds. The retail offering here is the same few shops selling the same few apparels. Nothing too fascinating either. The accessory shop here is quite a giant and well-stocked, maybe give it a go.
But for all else, you'd be much better off at Lot 1.
Scaled down version of Lot 1
Yew Tee Point is the shopping centre supporting the Yew Tee residents, with a two level directory. Together with the heartland shops just opposite it, this shopping area is pretty popular with the residents and is often very crowded.
The mall has a well mix of shops from food (Xin Wang, Pastamania, Subway, Toast Box, fast food), computer shops, Koufu, NTUC, tele shops, learning centre, clothes and even a slimming centre in it.
Being under Fraser malls, yew tee point often has promotions going on with the most recent one being a $5 voucher with every $150 shopping spend. This is the same as that of bigger malls like causeway point. However, I do find that since Yew Tee Point was just a two level mall with more heartland style shops, Fraser should have a lower exchange rate here say maybe $80. How likely am I to spend $150 at comics connections or Gong cha or Koufu?
But again, being Singaporeans the way we are, it is little wonder that the vouchers still disappear like fire on paper every time there is a promotion. For those who have late night crazes, xin wang opens till 4am here and the gaming shop opens till 1am.
