This has a gazillion mouth watering choices and was way more authentic than the China Town hawker centres. Had the best biriyani and loved the number of locals there. Yum. Yum.

The place to go for all your Indian cultural needs. I got some great Bollywood outfits. & casual Indian style clothing from here. My tip is to get there early. They see the first customer as being good luck & will let you barter them down well. One outfit cost me $150 which was a heavy jewelled Bollywood outfit. I... More

Bought the material for just under 100sgd and spend almost another 100sgd for alteration (to make the blouse & make the saree material into ready-made). Spent another 50sgd for accessories (necklace, earrings, bangles, ring). Be prepared to spend more on the... More

Awesome place if you want to experience local food. A good meal costs $5 or less - but don't let the prices fool you, the food is great! If you're into fancy dining you won't like this place, but if you're willing to experience a local meal, don't miss it. If you take the MRT to the Little India stop,... More

Love Singapore. Love the colours and spicy, florally smells of Little India. The Tekka Centre has smells all of its own as it also has a fish/meat market next to the hawker food court, in addition to multiple sari / salwar & kameez shops upstairs. Eye opening for it's difference in culture, definitely not as pristine as most of Singapore... More

Very interesting place if you want to know more about people and their way of living. A busy and colorful wet market, plenty of vegetables,fruit, meat, fish etc.The food court offers delicious meals at low price. A bit dirty and smelly but fun

A visit to Singapore must include this food hall, if you like Indian food. I had one of my best Indian meals, and I am an addict. Tandoori chicken, keema peas and garlic naan. No fuss or pretentiousness. Just fresh food which was truly amazing. All for S$8. A must if you don't mind scruffy tables, plastic cutlery but fantastic... More
