"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. "

This is purely a shopping centre for those looking for things all in the one place. There's nothing too special about it. I think it's just the novelty that you can buy perfume, clothes, food and watches all in one go at the one location. It was interesting to walk around and have a look but it isn't going to... More

Quite disappointing. Not the same as it was a few years back. The building looks washed out and run down. There are a variety of goods. Some are good and some are not so good - quality wise. Didn't have the same experience had a few years back. It is in a dilapidated state.

Waste of time. A lot of rubbish, very over crowded. All cheap items that are over priced. You can not walk around know space. Try another shopping area.

Take a department store in one hand, a grocery store in the other, have a whole heap of drinks and smash your hands together. The result is the Mustafa Centre. Basically it is good for a laugh and nothing more. The staff are rude and unhelpful. The products are cheap, nasty and often mislabeled. The customers wander around lost like... More

This is just like a normal shopping market. Not worth it to visit. Its similar to some shopping market in any metro of India. Don't waste your time if you are in Singapore for a limited time.

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
