The Tanglin Shopping Centre is nicely laid out and not too big. I was based out of the Camden Medical Centre for several days and the convenience of the mall was welcoming. Had a nice Banana Leaf lunch in the food court on my last day which was very nice

We usually visit here to help the family with the weekly food shopping as well as enjoy lunch in the food court. A variety of south East Asian dishes are available as well as fish and chips! Cheap and fast.

Don't have here if you are looking for one of the usual modern malls that are all over singapore. This mall is for specific visits - antique shops and carpet merchants are here as well as a number of Japanese enrichment centres for kids. The taekwondo school here is very popular and great for kids

Most probably at odds with other reviews of the Tanglin Shopping Centre - but I'm compelled to mention this bar! If you want a taste / experience of the quickly disappearing "old" Singapore, please pop into this bar for a mug of tiger and a yarn with the guy who runs the place + enjoy the endless and varied selection...

Came across this mall because I got it confused with the one attached to hotel jen tanglin. A variety of different shops to the other malls as it sells unique cultural items. It doesn't look much but it's not full of branded names.

More for those interested in art or craft pieces, though extremely good tailor, and value for money changers.

We were pleasantly surprised to find the best curry for the Roti Prata set in komala's we have always tried South Indian snacks so far and didn't realise this gem of a dish that they have. It's spicy and a perfect accompaniment to the 2 crisp pratas they serve with a smile. We ended up reordering it because we loved... More

Staying in Orchard Road

Neighbourhood Profile
Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why. This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying selection of shopping centres. From bargain basement foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is something for everyone. For those just browsing, there are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas, as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you amused. Most of the malls are connected by underground walkways, offering a break from the sun on a hot day. Bring a credit card and some comfortable shoes, and plunge into the excitement.
