  • A shadow of its formal glory. Not much for shopping but a good place for food. Quite value for money if you consider that you are taking a meal in orchard area. The nicest food stalls are always the hidden gems located weird corners.
  • Ate in Saveur, a French restaurant. Food was reasonably priced and not to bad. A good place for a light meal. Service was pleasant too.
  • Not the newest mall around. Don't expect to find the latest trends in the area, however it is still good for a nice change of pace in the city. This place is mostly filed with specialized stores like for piercings / tattoos and tailors as well. Basically this mall is populated with stores that can do highly specialized and skilled work.
  • It's a nice place to hang around, and even better if you find something you want. The restaurants on both the bottom and the top floor are some great places. I should draw your attention to the Mamak at the bottom floor and the Malaysian-Chinese restaurants that scatter the top. Though I was incredibly upset to see the Model Kit store leave Far East Plaza. For me it really took away the flare that Far Plaza once had. To add to this, there really isn't much to do here, but then again there never really was much to do here anyways. Its a mall that needs some fresh and new shops to bring people back again. It's good to still see people coming back to this mall, and I do admit I still come back to this mall everytime I'm back in Singapore. Overall, nothing too special of a mall. The departure of that Model Kit Shop took the flare of Far East Plaza with it.
  • There is a small but nice record shop here called Inokii. Friendly shop owner. You can place order from him and he will gladly help you order for you.
