I love two things in life. Good value and curry. My god I love the Tekka center. In England I go to curry houses often because for me it is the world's best cuisine. Here you can completely indulge in all of its wonders at very cheap prices and some top quality food. The food culture here continues to astound... More

Full of noise and goings on, a visit the Tekka Centre for the hawker food stalls and fresh fruit & markets is a way to join the locals. While the Centre looks poorly lit and uninviting, it is reasonable clean and the foods are safe to eat - and the aromas are enticing. There is an array of small Indian... More

Compared to most of Singapores food markets it's a little rough round the edges and not clinically clean. Multiple of food options from the subcontinent available and v cheap. Opted for Punjabi place. Had tasty chana dhal and... More

Tekka Centre is located just beside Little India Mrt station (Downtown Line or Northeast Line). It's a fresh food market as well as a hawker centre. Being located in Little India, there's a large number of stalls selling Indian muslim food and Indian food. There are also stalls selling Chinese dishes. Recommend Skylab at #01-228 for the many types of... More

For those who are not used to the variety of choices, the local hustle and bustle and the authenticity of a hawker food hall, this place may be daunting. Don't expect 'western-style' restaurants but be prepared to feast your eyes, ears and taste buds on an unmissable eating experience. Cheap and good quality food to be recommended. Guess what? Not...

At the ground floor, there are wide range of Indian food especially mutarbak, nasi bryani, mutton soup at local hawker price. If you want to taste Indian food in Singapore Tekka is undeniably a good place to sample. The curry sauces are of a variety and appetising rich. At the upper floor, you see a wide range of hdb shops... More

I find hawker centres very confusing and without a local or guide, hard to determine which are the good stalls. However, we saw an online review of Al Madina Food Corner (#01-266 green sign) which was fantastic. The family running it was super friendly and helpful suggesting (appropriate) amounts of food and side dishes. We had the chicken tikka, both... More

Great hawkers food centre, with an enormous choice. You can eat here easily for under $s10 a person, the biggest problem is the huge choice, I spent 30mins just deciding what to eat. Definitely a must visit.

Was wondering where to eat Indian for lunch when my friend mentioned this place. Glad we went here as it a vibrant place with many options for food Chinese, Indian, Muslim, . Was very cheap and very tasty- had a chickpea curry and nan from one of the many stalls. The masala tea was delicious . Came to 4.20 SGD!... More

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.
