Owner description: Part wet market, part food centre and part shopping mall, Tekka Centre is a place where several ethnic communities converge to create a multicultural shopping fiesta. Established in 1915, Tekka Centre moved to its current location in 1982 and is a landmark in Little India.

Food was good at the food court, especially the Indian 'tiffin' type food which is hard to come by in Australia. Food and drinks for 3 people cost me a total of $S8.50 but it's cetainly not the cleanest place you can eat at and I went early to avoid the dinner crowds. Upstairs the cheap clothes were all much of the same and clearly wouldn't last more than a couple of wears. Overall the centre looked tired and grotty.

If you like colourful Indian Style clothes and accessoires... This is THE place to go...
Most of THE shops on 1st floor are selling Same stuff.. But There are à few with THE more Nice/particulare stuff.

Groundfloor you can buy fresh fruits and veggies of à good quality and for SG quiet cheap! Also mest and fish for sale, but never tried that. There is also à huge foodcourt, but it is always so smelly and doesnt look that hygienic.. (at least for US westerners, and also not Singapore Style!!!) as THE city is very clean and proper...?!? So cant write anything About that, as we never tried it!

On THE outer sides of THE center you can get all Indian products like incense, bantoes etc.

MRT Little India around THE corner, not even 50m away. Several busses stops just in front of THE center. We could always park our car à few steps from THE market in one of THE small streets in that area... F.e. Dunlop Street.

Tekka Centre has reopened after its temporary closure for renovations though it still looks largely the same to me. I used to enjoy coming here during my teenage years for the colorful and cheap punjabis at the second floor, my dad loved coming here for the bryani at Allauddin Bryani Stall at the hawker centre and mom used to buy heavy loads of fruits and mutton and seafood while we waited for her patiently at the hawker centre, the wet market there is like a housewife's heaven. If you are visiting Little India, I should recommend this place as a starting point before walking down exploring the rest of Little India until Mustafa Centre. There's lots of restaurants on the way for a quick rest and lassi if you are tired :)
