Attraction details
Owner description: "Rarely seen without a bustling crowd of customers, Mustafa Centre is set in the Little India district. A cult favourite in the Singaporean shopping scene, it’s the best place to go if you’re after a bargain or enjoy shopping late into the twilight hours. Mustafa may not be as fancy as some of Singapore’s other malls, but it has a great range of items, and good prices to match. Here, you’ll get a bargain on just about everything, from clothes, perfume, souvenirs, electronics, makeup, confectionery and even food and groceries. "
Useful Information: Stairs / elevator, Bathroom facilities

People says Mustafa Center is the best place to buy souvenir in Singapore because they have cheapest price. And they're wrong.
I spent about Sin$700 in Musfata and I realized it was my dumbest decision ever since I found Chinatown has 1/3 or 1/2 price than Mustafa. Screw me.
The store was so crowded and I was felt very sorry to my young boy to brought him to the store. As the big store they didnt put any chairs for costumer to sit.
Okay fine, they have many stuffs in one roof. But if you have time to explore another place to buy stuffs with competitive/cheap price, avoid Mustafa.

I live in Singapore. I venture to Mustafa a few times a year. I go there for the atmosphere and the frenetic energy that the place gives out. I go there to marvel at the fake goods and the sheer number of things on sale. Do I bring my kids? Noooooooo.
It's one of those places you go to feel that you are no longer in clean orderly Singapore. Go in the weekends to really soak up the humanity (& humidity;) Things there are cheap but not rock bottom. Temper your expectations.
An interesting fact: they have a booth there that handles processing of visa to India. It's probably faster than going to the Indian embassy. Opening hours? No idea. You are in Mustafa ..... Singapore norms don't apply. And no, there is no phone number to call to enquire.

A visit to Mustafa is still relevant inspite of all the new swanky up market malls opened in Singapore. You get everything under one roof, at the right price.

Have you arrived from another continent, are still jet lagged and find yourself awake at night with better thing to do? All your problems have been solved with Mustafa.
Not only in open 24/7 you can find pretty much everything is this crazy mall/supermarket/jewerly place/pharmacy/etc etc.
Don't miss the rice session
Don't miss the chocolate session
Best thing about Mustafa? You will find not only what you need but also what you DON'T need
Moreover yo ucan find the same thing on diferent buildings and diferent floors
While price can be better than anywhere in the Island be careful that not everything you find here is cheaper than elsewhere

Huge department store, full of everything Indian you look for. Therefore. cosmetics, food, clothes, weird things, spices. Good prices, very crowded, you'll get pleasantly lost.
