“Nostalgia in Katong”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Area reminds me of my growing up years. A bit congested because many cars double-parked. Many original Peranakan buildings too jazzed up now. Hopefully this will not cause the Katong feel to disappear one day.

“A charming corner of Singapore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

With the best local food places, and interesting restaurants and cafes setting up, not to mention cute shops selling all sorts of eclectic things from furniture to other nic knacks, Katong is becoming a cool hip place to hang out. It has a beat of its own, different to other parts of Singapore, maybe because it was near the sea in the past. Residents in the neighbourhood are also chilled and relaxed. Visit if you have a spare afternoon.

“Eating haven, lots of shops and beautiful conservation houses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

A very nice area popular among locals and expats. You can find lots of cuisines, especially Peranakan food here. Try Peranakan Inn......you won't be disappointed with the food.

“Back to the sixties.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

It feels good walking along the five foot ways of these old buildings. Looking at the variety of food and the people enjoying the meals.
