We come here once in a while to buy a toothpaste (Don’t laugh! Only in Little India we can find neem toothpaste without SLS and Fluoride). If you are in this area, buy some fruits, veggies and the flowers. The quality of fruits & veggies is much better here than in Isetan. You’ll see lots of vegetarian restaurants – some... More

To be honest i didn't like this place very much. i expected a better place, but it was not as clean as it should be. when you visit this place, you face a dirty place which is not pleasant.

Nice place to visit, smell the rich Indian culture and buy nice souvenirs for a reasonable price and good quality. Don't forget to visit the traditional restaurants at the first floor. Huge asian variety in food and desserts. You must absolutely visit this place and also the nearby small shops and the old Kuala Lumpur City at the riverside and... More

We went there Friday afternoon and I must admit, there are lots of Indians here. The money exchangers offered the. Best rates I have seen in KL, the merchandise was. Dry much like the central market. The shopping centre there offered lower prices than other malls. Good enough to spend a few hours here.

This is a place to go, if you want to buy home made things from Malaysia. Ideal to get small kick-knacks as gifts for friends and families as well as souvenirs.

On my recent trip, I visited both Kuala lumpur and Singapore. When I compare Little India's in those cities, the one in Kula lumpur looks like a joke. It hardly has 50 indian stores and is about half a kilometer of walk. I have seen better indian streets such as Newark Ave in Jersey city,NJ in USA. It is a... More
