“Must-do. Busy, tacky, wonderful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was packed - felt like I had been to India! Just loved sitting in a corner cafe drinking lassi and watching all of India pass by! Very atmospheric.

“Not much to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

It's a nice walking route along Indian atmosphere, but there is not much interesting attractions and things to do.

“A small taste of India”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

What I liked about Little India is that it has all the Indian looks, shops, buildings and traditions, right in the middle of Singapore. Having been to India, I found it not that surprising, but it did amaze me how this city can be so different from one neighborhood to the other.

“Little India”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

When you enter to Little India, you will feel like you are in India, because it looks exactly like INDIA. Its a place where you will find all Indians roaming around. Indian food is served here at almost every restaurant. This part of town was fun to explore.

“Colorful and Hot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

To be able to appreciate the culture of Inidians, one must walk and roam the streets of Little India. It is colourful, noisy and at times people on the streets will have to look at you with the same curiosity. One's experience cannot be complete with eating in any of the restaurants in the place.

Tip: If you are looking for an authentic Indian food and is cautious of food poisoning, do not worry, any restaurants in little India is safe. You can choose between a vegetarian rest and non vegetarian resto. Tissue is not available in restaurants, go for soda instead of coffee.

Walk until you have satisfied your curiosity of the place, architecture, food and most especially to sit down and converse with the locals. I found my visit satisfying.
