"As Singapore’s tallest vertical mall, Orchard Central is an exciting and inviting spot to do your shopping. Designed such that glass is a central feature throughout, the mall has a breezy and welcoming feel.

Billed as an experience for the stylish shopper, Orchard Central has everything from fashion to food, including Singapore’s first Mediterranean-style marketplace, which also gives it a clear point of difference from other rival malls. "

Decent mall, there were not much choices for food. The space at ground floor were small especially when there was a fair on going. Love the library as it was quite new and elegant, with plenty of seats available!

This is an average mall, having some shops and restaurants, ice cream parlors and sale of small items like shoes, curios etc in the mall ground floor hall. I spotted a tall 20 meter high lady. Please see the picture. A description is also given in the attached picture. One visit is recommended.

So many shops according to directory but must be hidden somewhere, when going up the escalator I see only walls, ceiling and a few shops... However there are many good places to eat, and the real hidden gem in this mall is the roof top, its many escalators to go all the way up but its worth it!

Not the best mall on that street. Getting quiet and I guess people choose other malls over this one. Not too many shops around, but its ok to just stop by and cool down.

Plenty of shops are closed for renovation. Most of the restaurants are still open though. Parking here is a nightmare as you will have to spin and spin your way up and every level only have limited parking lots.

This mall is quite new, opened at about the same time with its neighbour, 313 at Somerset. But this mall is very quiet as compared to 313. You can tell the difference immediately after you visited 313 mall. The mall design is pretty complicated, with many hidden areas & shops are not so easily accessible or visible. The mix of... More

The way escalators set up is a bit confused. From ground to top floor not much interesting to me. Food, clothes, shoes, toys and etc. It's just like other malls in Singapore.

Hadn't spent much time shopping in Singapore and this was a good place to spend some time. Wide variety of stores and easy access via taxi - also a good spot to pick one up when you've finished for the day.
