Been here a couple of times. A place for local cuisine from Indian food to Chinese food all at it authentic taste. Over at the wet market, you could find lots of fresh produces you name it they have it. Something that you want to feel local.

Like a kid at a choclate store, this is a great place for people looking to buy Indian ware at great prices. The place is particularly great for ladies as there is a very wide range of sarees available. Little India itself is a lovely place and beautifully dressed up during the Diwali week. It is a great shopping place... More

If youre in little India and fancy saving some money on food, then head to Tekka, not the restaurants. Go to the end of Race course street and you'll see a rounded building on the corner near the train station, follow it around and it will lead you to Tekka market. I bought Spring onion, garlic pork and rice for... More

Local people might find Tekka Market boring, but for an European it's a very interesting place. The smells, the sounds... Everything is so vibrant! And I've never seen that many exotic goods before, I couldn't even name half of them!

It has long moved back to the permanent Tekka Market on Srirangoon Rd. The location on Racecourse Road was due to renovations at Tekka Market done, I believe, back in 2010 thru 2011. I recall walking there numerous times long ago.

Lots of indian and a few asian stalls. Just be aware if there are no prices displayed they tend to charge triple the regular price. This basically is located in Little India. While you are visiting this, visit Mustafa Mall and Time Square as all are close to each other.

Take in all the sensory experiences you can here ... see, hear, feel, smell and - of course - taste. This is a wet market, so there is fresh food in abundance - some you may never have seen before. It's also an everyday market, so there's lots of locals going about their daily shopping here. You can wander about... More

We chose to skip paying for our hotel breakfast, yes tight i know, and ventured across the road and found Tekka, proving to be one of the best decisions of our holiday, seeing as though food is the centre point on which our holidays revolve around! When you're one of the few white people trawling the seemingly endless array of... More

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
