Great food! You must try the Nasi Briyani (Indian spiced rice with curry chicken or mutton) and Roti Prata (fried Indian pancakes with curry). Come here before 11.30am or after 2pm to avoid the lunch crowd on weekdays!

The alley between Tan House and Andhra Road is Little India's most famous Hawkers Centre. It will give you a flavour of India, and although many people have written about the questionable hygiene, myself and none of my friends have experienced any problems. Also Singapore has pretty high food standards, so I am sure if there were any problems the... More

This is a place I normally come to for an Indian meal when I'm in Singapore. There are many hawkers to choose from here so have fun. The place looks unhygienic and probably is, but said that I have never been sick eating here though. Expect to pay no more the $3 - $8 for a curry with rice &... More

Don't get me wrong. This is a good place to experience Indian lifestyle. I appreciate it very much. However, the place is also messy. We ordered a few cups of Indian milk tea and found some mysterious dirt inside. Besides, there are water stains all over around. Please consider these before you visit here.

Tekka Centre was everything I expected it to be - a loud, grubby indoor flea market of a mall with a great hawker centre for food. We had a terrific lunch from 3 different stands, then shopped until we dropped while buying nothing at all. But we sure had fun looking!

We visited the Tekka Centre with our three children and we were amazed and fascinated on all three levels. The wet markets were great. We wandered around all the meat and seafood and the different seafood varieties we so interesting. We stopped and asked about the food and species and all store holders were happy to answer our questions. There... More

We couldn't get out of here fast enough. There is an overpowering aoma of fish and the cooking area looked fairly flithy.

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
