“Great variety of shops!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We loved this arcade with its great variety of shops. In particular, we enjoyed the many tailors offering hand made suits and dresses. We also enjoyed looking at all the different saris and Indian dress. The Indian jewellery was also fascinating. Outside were fresh vege stalls.

Great place to visit to experience a little bit of India here in Singapore without crazy smells and pestering shop assistants! Food delicious- especially little colorful Indian treats!!

“Dirty, Shabby spot in a beautiful city”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

Spend a half hour here and leave. All there is to see is a temple very similar to the one in Chinatown, which has better shopping, is more attractive and has lots of good shopping. You know how filthy India is? This is filth on a smaller scale. I wouldn't eat a thing here. If it dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside! Disappointed the flower leis are made up of wilted flowers. No refrigeration in a hot climate.
