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.

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.

Great place to shop for Indian food/drinks/clothes. Saris and Punjabis suits are available and are cheap. You may even bargain with them!

Offers India food that you can smell from blocks away and some interesting back alleys to check out. Local shops sell local specialties at a good price. Kinda scary walking alone after 7pm.

Little India is a great place to check out. Whether you're looking for Indian food or just want to walk around and hear the music and smell the incense and spices, little India is an adventure!
