After Central market, we headed to Little India market, it's just a short strip called Little India market. Fresh fruits, authentic India cuisine. Colourful with flower stalls along the strip, yummy curry puffs!!!!

In KL there are a few little Indias. One is in the Brickfields area, and another on the other side of Pasar Seni near Masjid Jamek The masala dosa are great at both areas as is the other Indian food choices. The food is a good as in India but probably a bit more hygenic.

It was quite pretty in this area. People are friendly and there are lots of places to eat. The cuisine is more of a south Indian taste. But many restaurants in the area.

It was interesting to see that ethnic quarter ,especially if it is your first encounter with Indian culture.It has its own smell.Some may not like it.It is not particularlly clean by the way.I was really impressed and spent some time there.However, if hygiene is important for you,you should be careful.

Colourful....noisy....lively....you certainly won't be bored in this fascinating area of Kuala Lumpur. Only a few minutes walk from KL Sentral, there's lots to see. It may be called Little India but it is clearly a multi-faith community with a mix of temples and churches. There's a beautiful fountain and some interesting architecture. There's plenty of places to eat from street... More

My husband and I visited here and really wish we hasn't. It was such a waste of time. The men are all very sleazy and even though my husband was holding my hand and walking next to me they still wouldn't stop staring at me. I felt very angry and uncomfortable. Little India should be called little south India as... More

It seems like there are always Chinatowns in big cities but KL has this may I say "Indiatown" like place. Interesting place to go and get a feel for what India may be like. If you want some Indian food or fabric and jewelry here is a good place as well.

You will find everything of India here - Clothes, jewellery shop, Temple, street food, restaurants, Public. You really feel like you are in India. On my visit to Kuala Lumpur every night I go there to have Indian food as there is the only place in Malaysia where you will find options on Indian restaurants.
