Attraction details
Owner description: "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. "

“Complete and Cheap”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

I usually go to Mustafa Centre to buy chocolate for family when I back home. So far, I never feel dissapointed with the shopping experience there. The snack and chocolate range are very complete and cheap, I never buy other products but seems like the watches, household, etc are interesting to explore. Also the money changer in front of the supermarket has competitive rate.

“Big Bazaar Of Singapore”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

well the title is good enough for every Indian to get the gist of my review. If you want to travel all the way from India to Singapore and would get excited by visiting the local 'Big Bazaar" - then Mustafa Centre is for you. Here you get everything

* Lots of Crowds
* Stuffy sections with lots of jostling around
* Repeat inventory mostly of goods that are now commonly available in India
* Prices which perhaps might be cheaper in India- but then you are shopping in Singapore!!! so why not pay them more for the same stuff

......overall my advice is AVOID , and spend your precious vacation time in exploring more of wonderful Singapore....

“An experience but prices too high”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

In years gone by this was the place to shop duty free but now you will find it difficult to find any bargains in what is probably Little India's richest Indian entrepreneur. Still the experience of the visit is worth it and don't miss the supermarket upstairs with a selection of sweets and chocolates you will find difficult to resist. After shaves and perfumes are cheaper by far at the airport duty free shopping but it's easy to get caught up in the volume of goods and the holiday atmosphere.
