Owner description: An experience for all five senses. Start at the Tekka Centre, a traditional wet market and food court where fresh meat, seafood, vegetables, fruits and dry goods are sold. Cruise down Serangoon Road to find more groceries, restaurants, teahouses, tailors and Mustafa Centre, a massive department store selling anything and everything. Visit during Deepavali, the Hindu festival of light, held in October or November.

“Little India”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Little India is the colony of Indian settlement near Serangoon, Singapore. And indeed it makes you feel like you are in India. It is old and it would be nice if they spent a few $$ on fixing it up.The area usually crowded with many Indian and international visitors. Many indian restaurants are vegetarian but very tasty food is served.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

What a fantastic culture shock. you come from impecable Singapore to the hustle & bustle of Little India. Its full of noise, sights & the wonderful aroma of curries. Try eating in one of the little cafes, you might frown on them at home however here their food is simply brilliant. Great bargains to be had in Mustafas too.

“Another recomended visit”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Just a short review but again, one of the multi cultural places to visit when in Singapore.
An organized bus trip will take you there and one you arrive, you are free to wander through the local Indian market stalls.
All type of goods are on offer at reasonable prices, no rip off tourist rates here!
As with China town - you are not hassled but the stall holders and they will let you browse in comfort.
Food is available if you want to try authentic Indian fair.
