Little India in KL is almost as vibrant as its more famous counterpart in Singapore. Visit here to get lost in the chaos of a busy Indian Street. Best to visit in the evenings. Food is Indian mostly with a definite Malay twist. For Indians, if you are missing home food, drop by here.

Start your day there with a good breakfast. I went to a fancy place in a mall a few minutes away on foot and paid 7 MR for 2 roti and tea. Whereas for lunch, I ate like a local. Basically, I walked down Little India till I found a place packed with the locals. You know a place is... More

The food here ranges from very cheap to mid-range. The atmosphere is the evening is electric, the food amazing, and the shops are treasure troves. Take time to watch the people threading flowers for offerings, and the shops selling gold are quite amamzing

The choice of quality japanese cotton prints in my preferred price range has been much limited, unfortunately. My favourite shop Kamdar on Jalan Tuanku has renovated the whole building to a bright, modern space selling mainly polyester, washable silk. The smaller shop nearby has still some cotton remnants, but all the beautifull linen prints are gone too. Jakel opened their... More

Largest Indian food & clothings outlet is situated around an area called Brickfields (also known as Little India). Travellers can see in person that a high percentage of Indian population is centred in this area (both Malaysian Indians & India expats) & one can also get the best & typical banana leaf outlets in this area (both Veg & Non-Veg)....

Safe area to browse a piece of India in Malaysia. Only a couple of air-conditioned restaurants and many Malaysian-type open buffet types that cleanliness is not the first priority. Walking distance from KL Sentral.

This point is something what you can avoid. There is nothing special to see ,except if you want to buy some small things like in chine shop. So ,don't waste you time there and go on some other place ,for exemple butterfly garden.

You can shop here for India items and have India food(south mainly), Spend an hour or two depending on your interest. Nothing much for Indians to do.

Charming place, you go there to have real Indian food. Can't go wrong with the restaurants here. Just å left of the monorail at kl station. If you like Indian food definitely a place to visit.
