    Could do with a revamp. Food court is tiny but has that famous chicken rice stall where you usually have to wait forever in line. Also the famous bakery a few doors down, for the very tasty banana cake. Lots of domestic helper agencies, some tailors.

    The mall needs a refresh badly as stepping in makes you feel like you’re back in the 70’s. If you’re into chicken rice, the basement has a pretty decent stall. This mall is probably best known for it’s FDW agencies. Best do your homework first before visiting any of them.

    A favourite hangout during my school days in the 70’s and 80’s. I remembered after dinner my parents would take us here via a bus from Geylang becos this is the only place with aircon.

    Though it may have lost its fame, it has its past glamour.

    A good place for inexpensive food and shopping.

    From my childhood days it has hardly changed. Several Maid Employment Agencies but also, shop selling good old airfix model planes and tanks etc. Foodcourt at 1 end still sells cheap to reasonably priced hawker fare including chicken rice for under $3. Dona Manis Cake and Pie shop still here but chk for which days they’re shut and they don’t open for too many hrs either, but really great banana pies available here ! Next door is the Humble Scoop Ice Creamery (reviewed separately). Other shop units sell older women’s outfits and there also 1 selling local hot and cold desserts.

    There’s nothing much in this old mall except for the myriad of maid agencies, and a table tennis training school. However, there was a chicken rice stall at the basement which was absolutely fantastic. The chicken was super tender and tasty. The bean sprouts were cooked perfectly, and topped with a generous helping of salted fish and four pieces of imitation abalone (? I think). Our order of chicken and bean sprouts came with free unlimited achar and free soup. The achar was hearty with huge chunks of pineapple, onions, cucumber and zest, while the flavor-packed soup was full of peanuts, lotus roots and chicken feet (not the watery veggie soup normally served at most chicken rice stalls). Really delicious. I’ll rate it 12 on a scale of 10.

    Definition of old school cool. Food court on the basement floor is home to one of the better chicken rice stalls in Singapore. Mia manis is located here as well-the only place to get old school sugee cakes and banana pies since CMC closed down (though operating ours can be a little unforgiving). Chinese dessert store is highly recommended, as is the humble scoop (?) with their locally inspired flavours.there are some optometrists here as well. Domestic helper agencies litter the first floor with a karaoke place here as well. Wheelchair friendly (lifts to the centre of the building)

    Katong Shopping Centre is a very old building… Unlike in the past where many came here for bowling, shopping and duplicating of songs in tapes. This building is now well known as a place where there are:

    1. many maid agencies for those who wish to have more options prior to hiring a domestic helper

    2. several photocopy shops that students nearby (VJC, St Patrick & etc) came to make copies of study notes at 3 cents each (for black & white)

    3. quite a number of good makan outlets e.g. the famous banana cakes, chicken rice stall and lately (started only in early May 2021), there are a number of new stalls added in the basement food court i.e. one Ipoh Zi Char Stall, one Western Food Stall and one Fried Carrot Cake Stall 🙂

    It will be nice if the building management can put in more effort towards maintenance of the building (re-painting with nicer paint, improve the air ventilation & revamp the toilets).

    This shopping centre has been around for long as I can remember. Can’t recall when was the last we visited but it was sure a very, very long time ago. Many maid agencies here, some dining options and like many other neighborhood malls, many children enrichment businesses here too.

    We found a few photocopying and printing businesses and a few hobby shops. There’s even a Teo Heng office up there.

    We also found a new FoodCourt in the basement and as we were gathered will be open for business very soon. We wish them all the best and success to their impending opening and business.

    One of the oldest building along this stretch of road as most of the other building have either been rebuilt or upgraded.
    One thing I dislike most about this place is their small car park lots. Other than that, they do have quite a number of jems (food stores)within the building.
    Basement has a coffee shop which has a famous chicken rice store & recently Tuck Kee Son which specialises in Malaysia opened a stall there too. Also in the basement is a famous banana pie store, yet to try it so no review about it.
    A dessert shop used to be located at the basement too but they have moved to the first floor now. Worth a try.
    Other than that, first level is full of maid agency (easier more than 8) second floor, photocopying shops.
    If you are looking for kids performing costumes, there’s a Steve’s Costumes hidden at one of the corner of level two.

    Came here to try the highly raved Boneless Chicken Rice in their food centre and I was not dissapointed. Took some time to walk around the rustic mall.

    It is reasonably maintained and I get to see many small retailers retailing niche products. It is a nice experience away from the other major malls where you mostly see the major brands on show.

    The upper levels mostly consists of maid agencies. It is a good place if you are lookong for domestic workers where you can compare the price and services of the various shops.

    Overall, it is like a throwback of the malls from the 90s, where the glitter and glamour is absent, but the touch of nostalgic is ever present.

    It’s a pretty old and looks a bit run downed place. There are a number of restaurants and 2 food courts as well as a number of agencies. There’s also a judo center which has quite a lot of students.

    I would recommend going to the new food court as it is air-conditioned, quite clean and has lots of food varieties compared to the old food court.

    Katong Shopping Centre, leaves a lot to be desired. If you want to hire a maid, this is the right place. The food in the food court on the basement level, is all that Katong Shopping Centre really has going for it. The bathrooms on the public levels are also not kept up the the standard I am so used to seeing in Singapore. The range of stores is quite large, from a computer repair store to a haunted collectibles store. However the building itself is really run down. Most of the stores I mentioned earlier are closed most of the day. There really isn’t much going on there. If you aren’t going there for work, I wouldn’t recommend going at all.

    One of my favourite chicken rice stores in Singapore. Generous portions of tender chicken with a flavourful rice. If you like pate, try the chicken liver. The soup is free and there are usually two types: cabbage or peanut and lotus root. Achar is free and this is also a really nice addition to the meal

    This was one shopping mall that I used to visit during my school days back in 1971& 1972. There were many things that we used to get from here and it brings back those nostalgic moments. Now it seems that this mall is monopolised by maid agencies but apart from that you’re still able to see some small eateries and clothing shops. I was here for a massage at Bodicare Message. Had a good massage and I feel very refreshed now. The masseur recommended acupuncture before the actual massage and it had really improved the strains that I’ve been feeling over the past few days. On the whole, this mall is still good for a decent shopping even though it isn’t like it what it used to be – you are able to shop with ease without the rush as you can see in all other shopping malls. 😉

    This shopping centre has been around for long as I can remember. Can’t recall when was the last we visited but it was sure a very, very long time ago. Many maid agencies here, some dining options and like many other neighborhood malls, many children enrichment businesses here too.

    We found a few photocopying and printing businesses and a few hobby shops. There’s even a Teo Heng office up there.

    We also found a new FoodCourt in the basement and as we were gathered will be open for business very soon. We wish them all the best and success to their impending opening and business.

    As Singapore’s first mall with central air-conditioning – it has certainly seen better (And busier) days.

    I remember it for being a place filled with software and computer hardware shops in the heady techie days of 3.5 inch floppy disks and 16-bit graphics.

    These days, owing to its strata-titled constitution, it is filled with a variety of shops from Peranakan antique sellers, seamstresses, domestic helper agents, and even a martial arts dojo – all wrapped in a sleepy coastal village atmosphere.

    On the upside, the food choices still harken back to the good old days – Dona Manis, a cake shop located in the basement serves excellent baked goods and the cream horns are simple in composition and straightforward in its pleasure.

    The chicken rice in the food court located at the west end of the building is also a special delight.

    Perhaps it’s the nostalgic vibe that this 1970s first air-conditioned mall in Singapore gives, but I hope Katong Shopping Centre stays for a while more as it is now.
    The only thing I hope to change is how the domestic helper agencies parade their clients (the helpers) like meat for sale aka modern-day slavery though.
    Apart from this, there are nice eateries like the traditional Hainanese bakery (butter buns, cheese buns, banana and coconut pies yay) at B1, the foodcourt, the traditional Chinese dessert place also at B1, the pet aquarium shop on the same row as the ghostbuster/exorcist (check out the eerie photos out front), etc.

You won’t miss it – there will be a snaking queue occupying almost half the coffeeshop during the lunch hour. While you are there, do look out for a lovely bakery on the same level named Donna Manis that is being run by a trio of elderly folks. Their banana pies are HEAVENLY!

    Not much good shops here, most of them are maid agencies. Basically, the only shop that is useful is the clinic (Chan Family Clinic). Always go there for medicine.

    We love to buy the banana pie (available Saturdays only) from the bakery in the basement. Now not so convenient since we moved away from Joo Chiat, but always worth the visit when in the Katong area

    Lots of shops but only here because of the shop “Delicious Boneless Chicken”. If you have expectations on shopping, just across the road to 113 shopping centre instead.

    Pretty well maintained for the oldest air-conditioned mall in Singapore. Most of it’s patrons are here for the delicious chicken rice served at a restaurant in the basement.

    I live in Western Australia, but lived in Singapore from 1971 to 1973 I used to live in Eastern Mansions in Jalan Ketchil in Katong when I was stationed in Singapore with the Australian army. My wife and I used to shop there all the time, it was a new shopping centre then, we both went back to Singapore in June 2017 and was sad to see the state of the building now, but we still enjoyed having a meal in the food court in the basement the food was very good

    Would like to commend SSO Jumat from Elitez Security for his initiative and kind understanding.

    I visited the mall but was unable to find a bicycle rack to lock my bike to. SSO Jumat kindly walked with me to a nearby rail and helped me watch over my bike while I ran in and grabbed what I needed as fast as possible. I appreciate his kind gesture, initiative and innovation in the absence of a bicycle rack. I hope that his superiors recognise his effort.

    To the management: would be great if you could have a bicycle rack with CCTV security.

    Able to turn into the pickup point from Haig Road. Old shopping center, mostly maid employment agencies, tuition centers and food stalls. Tuition centers caters to schools in the vicinity as extra curriculum classes. Interesting of such tuition center is Flipside Education, where the center provides desktop and proprietary educational video contents. Food stalls include a Chinese Mala Hotpot stall at Level 1 and a stall serving stirred fried dishes next to it.

    Delicious fried Mee choices. However, the single serving per plate is a little too small a portion in comparison with the price stated.

    One of the oldest shopping centres in Singapore. A lot of maid agencies and mix of retail shops. At the basement, there is food court that has a very popular chicken rice stall.

    nice food centre at B1. the chicken rice is one of the best. i think it was voted top 2 in Class 95FM.
    Parking is very difficult to find as well as to park. the parking lots are very narrow too.

    A great mall with many upmarket food options, no $4 noodle deals but OK for variety

    There’s a terrifyingly delicious chicken rice located at the basement. For karaoke lovers, teoheng is here too

    Great place if you’re looking for a new maid. Tons of maid agencies. Other than that, there is a really famous confectionary in B1 Dona Ma is Cake Shop. The chicken rice at the food court is also really nice, and the restaurant/beer-garden on the outside B1 is also very good.

    Very old building. Only 1 food court and most stalls closed on Monday when I came to eat. Ban mian was one of the stalls I patronised. Seller is friendly but food is lousy. Mian all stick together.

    Chicken rice! Very nice owners running the place. Free flow soup and achar. With chicken rice so good, they didn’t have to, but they do. …
