“Like a Trip to India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Walking through Little India on a Friday or Saturday night is like taking a mini vacation. The streets can be teeming with people on the main drags. I lke Race Course Road for the variety of eateries and the more local flavour. The markets are great for spices, nuts, vegetables etc.. Prices are very reasonabe especially for Singapore.

“Little India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Little India is the colony of Indian settlement near Serangoon, Singapore. And indeed it makes you feel like you are in India. It is old and it would be nice if they spent a few $$ on fixing it up.The area usually crowded with many Indian and international visitors. Many indian restaurants are vegetarian but very tasty food is served.

“Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

What a fantastic culture shock. you come from impecable Singapore to the hustle & bustle of Little India. Its full of noise, sights & the wonderful aroma of curries. Try eating in one of the little cafes, you might frown on them at home however here their food is simply brilliant. Great bargains to be had in Mustafas too.
