“Seriously how exciting can furniture shopping be?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Ok if you are looking for cheap modern furniture....otherwise avoid. Unless you are after Swiss foods (the smoked salmon is good value) in the little Swiss shop

“pretty standard IKEA ... just like anywhere else in the world”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is a typical example of an IKEA. It's larger than the other one in Singapore, but pretty typical size by comparison to stores in North America. Like all IKEA stores, it is bright and has high ceilings, and there's the restaurant, child's area, etc. The prices do seem to be less of a bargain compared to the IKEA stores in the US and Canada. Aside from this, there's nothing to warrant any major accolades, but also nothing to warrant any major complaints. Some minor issues are its great distance from town, and the extremely long lines to buy an ice cream cone--which you make yourself once you buy a token at the counter. They should just invest in a token dispenser.

“stress free furniture shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

shopping here is rather enjoyable. there are no pressure to buy or salesmen who talk you into buying stuff you don't need. the layout allows you to look for what you need and there is no time pressure. nobody will rush you to buy or to leave. when you are satisifed and ready to purchase, simply go to the counter to have your orders printed. depending on what you buy, some can be picked up immediately. bulky items can be delivered for a fee.

“Still the best place to buy stuff for home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Definitely a one stop shop for everything you need for home or office. You can decorate and equip a bare house in just one visit here! absolutely fabulous selection. Great christmassy feel during my last visit in November. Must visit for people from countries without Ikea. and the Tampines mega store is the better one in Singapore.

“Ikea Tampines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

A little out of town and off the public transport routes. You catch an Ikea courtesy bus from Tampines MRT bus stop. If you have shopped merrily you need to catch a cab home as the bus can be packed and there is no space for shopping bags.
