In my opinion, Little India is definitely a neighborhood to stop by in Singapore. It is a great cultural experience, you can also find nice and decently priced restaurants there, also shopping is much more affordable then elsewhere im the city!

Pleasant day out, we ate at the Jungle Tandoor Restaurant which was not one of the top 35 restaurants but we were the only non Indian people in there and the food was great and would highly recommend it.

This being our first time to Singapore we were so impressed with how clean everything was and the nice wide pavements one could walk on without being harrassed by motorcycles or motor cars. However we found Little India, to be dirtier than other places in Singapore, also the shop vendors placed a lot of their goods on the pavements thus... More

Whenever I visit Singapore, each time i visit Little India. Busy, noisy and happening place in singapore. Mustafa Center, Banana Leaf, Ferrer Park Hotel are one of the attractions nearby. But I like River Park Tandoori restaurant to eat Indian Food.

One of the three ethnic areas of Singapore - European, Chinese and Indian. The hint is in the title - "Little". It is interesting to visit and explore the shops. My biggest disappointment was that I visited a number of spice shops but in all cases the spices were pre-packed - I expected to see big bowls of spice that... More

We have been to India and as we came out of the Metro station my family all had the same impression - this is really like the real thing. Bustling, busy, noisey, colourfull. Well worth a visit.

Little India seemed a bit disjointed to us. A cluster of Indian shops and cafés interspersed over a larger area. It wasn't as obvious where it started or finished. Perhaps it was better in the past.

This Place is really a Bless for people who are from India to have lunch and dinner. Many Restro have south Indian food. Veg and Non veg North Indian food is also available here. Try not to purchase any other thing from the market all the things are imported from India. If you want to purchase anything then go to... More

Bring your money because there are deals to be made here. There are a lot of shops here featuring everything you can think of. My wife was particularly impressed with the jewelry shops with their fantastic displays of gold. I was smart enough not to let her go in, though. The best part is the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple.
