About
"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. "

Top ways to experience Mustafa Centre
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

    All the items under one roof
    The favorite place of Indians for shopping whether routine or specialized shopping. You can find all the item in this mall ranging from consumer goods to apparels to electronics and even gold. You can purchase gifts and souvenirs at much cheaper rate sometimes less than half the rate of open market or tourist place. They also provide you GST refundable bill.

    Everything everywhere at once
    Packed to the brim with goods, bustling, noisy, exciting. If you like indulging in capitalist, everything-available-at-once experiences or just enjoy “window shopping”, this is a great place. From a European perspective, I especially liked looking at all the tech stuff we can only get on Amazon. Great place.

    Such a huge central shopping mall where you can find all what you need. Two opposite buildings, one for gold and diamond and the other for all shopping groceries, dresses, shoes, guitars, perfumes and many others. Considerable as fine prices as per Singapore’s standards.

    Mustafa Mega Mall
    I first visited Mustafa in 1982, directed there with a fistful of Singapore dollars after British Airways left my luggage at Heathrow. The lady at lost baggage assured me that I could purchase a range of men's clothing for the small amount of assistance received. So it proved and since then no visit to Singapore is complete without a visit to the store in Syed Alwi Road. It's become mega big over the years, each floor packed with merchandise, perhaps too much in places as aisles have become so narrow that one person has to step into an adjacent aisle to allow the other pass. Very difficult to peruse and fit garments and frankly, I found the experience overwhelming on this occasion. Each level was crammed with merchandise, the only areas visited that offered relative space were the jewelry and watches sections. Still old-fashioned security with plastic cable ties sealing the plastic bags containing your purchases. Worth visiting on a weekend for a claustrophobic experience.

    Chocolates and Souvenirs
    If you are looking for cheap chocolate souvenirs and what-not, this is the place for you. The store is full of a lot of things, from dry goods to groceries. I watched a Youtube video which somehow convinced me that this is the place to shop for Merlion Chocolates and other souvenir items. Beware tho, you might spend more that you think. If you are buying lots and lots, well, it might be worth the trip. But with just a few like a dozen boxes, well you may be better off buying in the grocery in near your hotel. We are staying in a hotel in Orchard, so we had to pay Grab to and from Mustafa. So I computed the fare and price and realized it would've been better off buying at Lucky Plaza.

    Bustling centre
    Mustafa was bustling with people inside and out. The centre itself was very big and was cram packed with evythig you could imagine to shop for from food to household items clothing toys and the list goes. We looked around for a couple of hours and didn’t get the visit all levels as it’s too big, would need a whole day or two (with children). But like many say it’s cheap and good for bulk purchases we didn’t think so. Wasn’t very cheap when it came to checking out so if your not willing to spend maybe keep an eye on the prices of individual items.

    Mustafa Centre - worth it if you like a bargain and a rummage and have plenty of time
    Well worth a visit if you have the time. I went on a weekday and I understand weekends are extra busy. Aisles are tight to move around on the multiple floors. But if you have the time and like a good rummage for some bargains, worth a visit. Note that the prices are very good but the prices in Bugis street market was even better.

    Everything you need
    Where on earth have I just been? The Mustafa Centre is something else; this crowded shopping centre is crammed packed with products from painkillers, to shampoo, to frying pans and a whole floor of clothing to boot. It’s got everything the human desires. But the aisles are tight and it’s a pain to manoeuvre around so make sure you a spare hour or two before you visit. Well worth a walk around.

    Worth a visit
    VERY crowded and spread out but worth the trip. They sell everything - clothing, food, batteries, travel, toiletries even materials. Sunday is a NIGHTMARE as it's the day off for most people so try to avoid it then. They have a money changer too with a good exchange rate

A well-known shopping centre, Mustafa is frequented by Indians & other tourists. Known for its huge variety, it pretty much figures in the itinerary of Indian tourists!

The cashier system is very bad. 5 counters but only 1 cashier working. What's the point of having so many counters but only 1 working?? Might as well do self checkout.

Great place to shop. You can find almost anything in there and it opens 24/7 😊
The quality of the clothes are great. I would recommend getting the souvenir shirts here, variety of designs and colours.
