Can this place improve, well no one is friendly here...all about selling and... More

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!

Hameediyah Nasi Kandar in Queens Street, was the best I had in Penang. They have A/C restaurant a few doors away from the original lot.

This small enclave near the bottom of Chulia Street also includes Pitt Street, as well as King Street, and many small side-streets too. If you are into your chicken tikka, tandoori meats and rendangs as well as nasi and mee goreng, this is the place to go. Great choices everywhere! We had a great meal of tandoori mutton, chicken tikka... More

You think you are back in New Delhi, India sans the cows strolling in the streets. Little India is right in town from Beach Street to Pitt Street within walking distance to the other local attractions... More

Great to walk along to get a taste of Little India and all things Indian within Penang. There are restaurants, street food and souvenir shopping all mixed in with the locals going about their daily business. More of a pass through than a have to go see
