Stay in Little India

City Square Residences, perched high above  Little India Neighbourhood in a historic location, is the area’s most famous private residential complex. Another large-scale condominium with full amenities, such as a swimming pool and tennis court, is close to Kerrisdale. Apart from these, there are private apartments for rent or sale in smaller complexes such as Clydes Residence and Studios@Marne, which do not offer the same amenities but are ideal for individuals who prefer a more intimate setting. HDB flats in the area are also an option for renters and buyers. The blocks locate across Little India, including Cambridge Road, Rowell Road, Veerasamy Road, and above Tekka Centre.

Eat In Little India

The Banana Leaf Apolo, Muthu’s Curry, and Sakunthala’s Food Palace are just a few of the good Indian restaurants in the area. The Gurkha Palace Restaurant serves Nepali cuisine, and Komala Vilas delivers vegetarian Indian food in a fast-food format. The many Indian food stalls in Tekka Centre also conduct a brisk business, serving delicious food at reasonable costs. Little India, created as an ethnic enclave, is not primarily a Tamil community. If you look closely, you’ll notice that many residents and shop owners are Chinese, while most businesses cater to the Indian community with other ethnic groups in mind.

The North-East Line MRT, which stops at Little India MRT Station and Farrer Park MRT Station, is now the most convenient route to get to Little India. Even additional access is provided by the Downtown Line, particularly on the Jalan Besar side. All roads leading to Little India serve buses, and vehicular access to Bugis, Dhoby Ghaut, Lavender, Boon Keng, Novena, and Bukit Timah is simple and convenient.
