Easily accessible via the SMRT we wandered into Little India. It laked the vibrancy of Little India in Kuala Lumpur. Few flowets displayed and a lot of poor quality souvenirs. The restaurants appear to be fairly well patronised but we didn't stop to find out as we were disappointed in the over all feel.

Little India is very nice place for walking, sightseeing and shopping for bargains. I like to taste different street food there. It is tasty and safe. Of course once you are there visit Hindu temples like Sri Mariamman Temple. I prefer to visit Little India during the day as it is very crowded in the evening.

Having been to India this area was disappointing. Hard to find good shopping, although we did find a great Indian restaurant for lunch. Probably the dirtier more disappointing part of Singapore.

I recently took my wife and two daughters to Little India on a sunday night for dinner. It became apparent quickly that I had chosen the incorrect day and time. The place was crowded with drunken Indian men which made it a frightening experience for my oldest daughter. After I had spoken to a shopkeeper I was told that sunday... More

I do not recommend Little India to anybody. It is noisy, dirty and run down. There was also nothing to do there apart from look at the old buildings.
