    Before the tampines Giant was opened, i always visit the one that is nearer to my house, and it was located at the sembawang shopping centre.

    I always bought things from Giant due to its cheap and big variety of things. :D

    Furthermore, they also conducted lucky draw frequently !

    I always bought foods like Apples ( always seem so fresH ) , breads ( they made the bread themselves !) and is only $ 1 !!!! Even the wholemeal bread is only $1.20 .

    They also sell sushi, cookies, clothing, meat, .....etc . TOO MUCH FOR ME TO mention.....

    However, when the sembawang shopping centre closed down ....i seldom visit Tampines giant ! Because i knew i will bought a lot a lot of staff and SUFFER ! LOL

    Like the Gigantic "GIANT " even though i never fail to see the long queue in every counter.

    Like their things but not their staff as some of them can be quite "snobby".

    OVerall , giant shopping centre is my second choice of shopping in term of distance but the FIRST in value and the variety of things they sell.

      I went down to Giant (Tampines) recently to purchase red wine for christmas and the variety was great! I was almost seeing "stars" & abit confused by the great variety of brands available at the wine corner.

      The staff tried to be helpful but they too have limited knowledge about red wine so I bought a few different brands with fruity flavours.

      Then when I moved down towards the sushi counter, it was really interesting to see that they have sushi, sashimi, pickled items & fresh food but the sushi doesn't look fresh. They looks like they've been mass-produced & not well-made. Although the pricing doesn't seemed expensive but the ingredients used don't look fresh.

      I bought a handroll sushi with avocado & those orangey fish roes even tho' the avocado had brown spots on it. Also bought a mix sushi set & a tray of salmon sashimi and sat at the waiting area outside the cashier counters to eat. The handroll tasted ok but the fish roes were very fishy in taste, the seaweed for the mix sushi were soggy, salmon sashimi wasn't as fresh becox there's a very fishy smell even when I added wasabi & soya sauce.

        continued: wanted to add that the sushi staff wasn't friendly when I asked them questions abt products/ availability of certain items. Telling-off tone of voice with take-it-or-leave it attitude.

        And there's a petite, male chef who handles the fish who told me in a snobbish tone that they won't let customers buy when they R already making the item as they don't like to be rushed. Terrible!!

        I feedbk to Giant & found out that the Sushi belt belongs to another vendor so I gv 3 stars instead of 1 or 2 stars for rating. Giant apologised so good enough, case closed.

      The Giant Supermarket's products are mostly from Malaysia as all of use know Giant was originated from Malaysia. Some of the items are a few cents more expensive than NTUC. But they do have products which are imported from Malaysia which are more cheaper.

      Giant Tampines is just besides IKEA so its quite convenient to shop at this supermarket after you have done your shopping at IKEA or COURTS.

      With this super big supermarket situated in the east, it greatly benefited those residing at the east. One thing I don't like about Giant is their foodcourt is very small. Even if shoppers want to dine there also hard.

      But I do admit their food court has a wide variety of food.

      Some even placed their shopping trolley along the walkway just in front of the foodcourt making people hard to walk because the escalator to exit from the supermarket is near to the food court area.

      The toilet even worst. Super duper crowded. I guess they should expand their toilets by installing more cubicles.
