Yet another mall in Singapore, this is a smallish mall with a few decent boutique stores. Good grocery store and food options.

The worst service I have experienced in Singapore, and that is saying something! I was told my order would be 5mins. After about 8mins they asked me what I was waiting for. I was asked which number dish I order. They could not understand 'Two servings of number Twelve'. 'Twelve' was repeated numerous times. They asked to see my receipt... More

With a connecting bridge, this mall offers additional shopping and dining options for those staying at Hotel Jen. The shops are a little more unique - you don't have the big brands you find on Orchard road but still a decent selection. Some additional restaurants for those not keen on going out further plus the supermarket is always handy to... More

Is an old shopping centre, but when come to festive the shopping centre is well decorated, like christmas and chinese new year. Effort has been put in to decorate up the centre you feel good walking in. You forgot is an old shppping mall with not much to offer for shopping Good job.

The Tanglin Shopping Centre is nicely laid out and not too big. I was based out of the Camden Medical Centre for several days and the convenience of the mall was welcoming. Had a nice Banana Leaf lunch in the food court on my last day which was very nice

We usually visit here to help the family with the weekly food shopping as well as enjoy lunch in the food court. A variety of south East Asian dishes are available as well as fish and chips! Cheap and fast.

Don't have here if you are looking for one of the usual modern malls that are all over singapore. This mall is for specific visits - antique shops and carpet merchants are here as well as a number of Japanese enrichment centres for kids. The taekwondo school here is very popular and great for kids

Most probably at odds with other reviews of the Tanglin Shopping Centre - but I'm compelled to mention this bar! If you want a taste / experience of the quickly disappearing "old" Singapore, please pop into this bar for a mug of tiger and a yarn with the guy who runs the place + enjoy the endless and varied selection...

Came across this mall because I got it confused with the one attached to hotel jen tanglin. A variety of different shops to the other malls as it sells unique cultural items. It doesn't look much but it's not full of branded names.

Neighbourhood Profile
Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why. This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying selection of shopping centres. From bargain basement foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is something for everyone. For those just browsing, there are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas, as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you amused. Most of the malls are connected by underground walkways, offering a break from the sun on a hot day. Bring a credit card and some comfortable shoes, and plunge into the excitement.
