Not a bad market, I found chinese and muslim markets better priced than here. I recently went to phuket and bangkok and the same knock-offs here are so expensive by comparison. A purse for 150baht ($30) can be bargained down to 75 or even 60. Here the starting price was 250 ringit - around $75! A long way off cheap... More

On some three trips to Malaysia I've never managed to deliberately go to "Little India" deliberately. Instead I seem to end up passing through the Brickfields area enjoying the depth and colour of the Indian culture that abounds here. Unlike Chinatown which has a defined boundary, and then fringes of related shops etc Little India is a smooth transition, the... More

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
