“tekka”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Very interesting place if you want to know more about people and their way of living. A busy and colorful wet market, plenty of vegetables,fruit, meat, fish etc.The food court offers delicious meals at low price. A bit dirty and smelly but fun

“A must”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

A visit to Singapore must include this food hall, if you like Indian food. I had one of my best Indian meals, and I am an addict. Tandoori chicken, keema peas and garlic naan. No fuss or pretentiousness. Just fresh food which was truly amazing. All for S$8. A must if you don't mind scruffy tables, plastic cutlery but fantastic food.

“Good wet markets, fascinating”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

A trip to. Little India would not be complete without a walk through Tekka Market Centre. Fruit and vegetables, seafood of all varieties, mutton, goat, chicken, beef all are available and being sold as quickly as prepared - be prepared for the market smells though. Travel upstairs to enjoy the festive colours of the tailors and trade stalls - no shortage of Indian inspired clothes here. The hawkers markets deliver Indian, Malaysian, Chinese inspired foods with plenty to tempt the taste buds. Good access from the little India MRT.

“Great array of Indian apparel & hawker food centre”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Great hawker centre downstairs (wet market too if you are looking for that sort of foodstuff) however the shopping upstairs is 99% Indian clothing so is not great if you are looking for "western" style clothing. For me, not a great tourist destination (except if you are just looking for a nice hawker centre meal) unless you are specifically looking for Indian clothing (which I wasn't).
