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. "

“Surprise Package - Excellent place to Shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

It is one of the biggest shopping centre with the heaviest crowd, I have ever seen. You can find anything and everything here, right from batteries to television, undergarments to dresses, it has everything you can think of. It covers a very wide area and is split between two buildings, with each floor having its own product line. Unlike a usual mall where you find shops of different brands, here you find everything on stalls with multiple cash counters at every ten step. You pick up and you get it billed, by the end you find yourself loaded. The variety is so huge that you get tired of just choosing the right one. Just for eg I was looking for a black handbag for gifting and I had to choose from almost two hundred variety of black handbag.

I visited the place twice, the first time just to take a feel and the second time to buy gifts, like I said it has everything from souvenirs to chocolates. On my first visit I easily managed to forget my way outside the building and almost spent 15 minutes locating the exit, with this you can well imagine how crowded and packed it is. My second visit was at the time of Singapore Independence Day (local holiday) which resulted in jam packed elevators, to no place to even walk. It is a place where everybody is shopping from grocery to gifts and is especially crowded on holidays.

It is a must go for everybody to experience the real shopping. No bargaining and endless variety. It is close to little India and has lot of Indian eateries around, so a good place to enjoy the food and shop. Some key facts:

* Don't visit Mustafa on a public holiday
* You almost never get a taxi from Mustafa - either pre-book it or walk to a different street
* It is open 24 hrs, so you can visit at anytime
* Place for doing bulk shopping and not branded shopping

“Interesting unexpected finds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

On Sunday, went to Little India for a curry and a walk around Mustafa. We wanted to see what this was all about, and we were not disappointed. Do not expect great bargains on electronics but we have found interesting everyday items such as food, medicine, cosmetics, kitchen accessories, tourist souvenirs. Aisles are narrow, but there are good signs inside and we did not have any problems. Minutes from Farrer Park exit H.
