It is a place which serves wonderful hawker food, both during the day and at night. The stalls are small and may be easily regarded as average, but I enjoy the food there as the taste is refined and suits my taste buds very well. Excellent Indian and Indian Muslim food served here, with a variety of choices to pick... More

Well not quite Bollywood but stroll around here in the evening and there's music blaring and coloured lights and people dining in the streets. We made sure we wandered through Little India most nights just for the sights and sounds and delicious smells of food mingled with incense. Make sure you stop to eat somewhere, anywhere, around here and watch... More

Another popular street for sightseeing of old buildings, street art, and activities. There seems to be some sort of festival from one culture, religion, or people going on at any given week, so try to research if you'll be missing a street fair or lion dance while you're here.

Lots of great eateries on Queen Street, primarily Nasi Kandar -- delicious Indian-Muslim cuisine. Everything we tried was so flavorful and really cheap (though that seems to be w/ all the food in George Town). Don't miss a stroll down this street and a pop into any of the eateries for some awesome Indian food.

Part of the Little India area with plenty of shops and eateries and tasty snacks from the hawker stalls. Bollywood music coming from a couple of music/DVD shops. Well worth a visit and sampling the delights.

Little India of Penang island. Lots of shops selling everything from spices to saris and colourful scarves. Walk around and savour the food of the many eateries serving delicious nasi kandar and Indian sweets. A must visit.

As we had already tried most of the popular nasi kandar restaurants in the area, we decided we wanted to taste nasi kandar from a road-side stall. We were not disappointed. Simple, no frills. Plain rice served with mutton, beef, chicken or fish and a vegetable. Delicious and cheap. Note: This review is about the food we had. The street... More

If you want some good chapatis....there is a stall after the cross junction to Market Street selling chapatis. Love their sardine curry and mutton curry. Stall is open in the evening for dinner. After dinner, you can stroll around Queen Street or walk down Market Street to browse at the various Indian shops or savor some Indian sweets

Both Queen and King streets are worth a look and you might find interesting Indian shops to see and stroll around. You can also try some Indian hawker food here.
