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. "

Heard lots of bad things about this complex and it's locality however it was quite clean and well organised. Items were all clearly marked and presented. Fairly cheap prices for souvenirs and Items from India. Almost impossible to get a cab outside though

A real experience, massive and crammed to the rafters with products as varied as gorgeous sari fabrics and golden jewellery to electronics, toiletries and sportswear. A real eye opener and everything seemed much cheaper than in the UK. If you're in Little India, Singapore! well worth a walk round for the experience.

Good place. You can get food, can shopping everything (souvenirs, chocolates too) etc in cheap price?????. It have money changer near by. City square mall is on walking distance.

It is definitely a good place if u r an indian and staying in singapore for more than a month. You can refresh here by having taste of India.

Love the place and the prices are certainly made for the local people.

The money exchange is close to the ball which makes it my first port of call when arriving into Singapore.

Love their items and the security of the gold area is second to Fort Knox.

The average western tourist must realise that this is "little India" however this is only a veil and once passed it you will certainly come back to to it on your next stop-over. I have lost count on how many times I come back here.

What is good
1. A good variety of products
2. Too huge there is hardly anything you won't get here
3. Chocolates are very good
4. Lots of tills so one can avoid long queues
What is not good
1. Too cramped. Many places trolleys don't even go
2. Unfriendly staff
3. Aisles are full of dust
4. There are products sitting in the shelves for over 2 years. One has to watch the mfg date of every product
5. I doubt the genuineness of electronic products.
I feel mustafa became famous in an era when electronic items were unaffordable in India. Now you get stuff at a cheap price in India too. So mustafa has only a historic significance in the singapore trip.
But it's still worth a visit for the way they manage the inventory and range of products. But the overall expirience will be average.
