And I'm talking about the original Little India, near Petaling Street. There are great Indian restaurants. The area is small, you can see it all in 10 minutes, but there are some great Indian shops to go to. And the Indian food here is very good and good prices.

Okay to view but not suggested for shopping as such. Good to see indians and many indian restuarants at once but i suggest not to buy anything here as they are costlier.

This is indeed a Dark side of Kuala Lumpur hidden by surrounding major attractions, the main transportation terminal @ KL Sentral and luxury hotels ( Hilton, Le Meridien, Aloft and etc which is still under construction ) . Travellers beware of all the dangerous drunk people roaming around the street ( especially in Brickfields and Jalan Thambipillay ) area and... More

Little India wasn't was I thought it was and even though most reviews over here on Tripadvisor advised against it, we still went there to see if we could experience some local culture but essentially it is a crowded place with not much to buy or see or experience. Too many tailors, cheap tshirts, garment shops, cheap (and maybe fake)... More

KL's Little India is little more than one street with a some retail shops (clothing/tailors, souvenirs, DVDs, flowers/temple offerings) and food stalls. Not really worth going out of your way, but if you're in the neighborhood, you might as well stop by for an authentic and tasty snack.

Little India is confined to a small stretch of road full of shops on both side… Indian restaurants, sweet shops, clothing, cheap CD/DVDs, loud music but nothing exiting or spectacular to see here. I’m an Indian and I didn’t find the place very exiting… If you are a westerner you may still would like to experience the unusual ambience and... More

It is something different to visit, small area and very colourful that you need to visit but don't expect much of it.

It's a very colorful place, but not really booming with life... Not as spectacular as I had read in articles. It's just mostly tailors, not many authentic cuisine or shops. We just had a look and left as there wasn't much to see or appreciate there. Worth a few photos but nothing more than that.

Indian Market with mostly indian clothes. if you are in Kuala Lampur then save your time and to go Bukit Bintang Area. It is one place for all your needs. For fashionable clothes at cheap price to go Sungei Wang Plaza and Time Square and for brand there are pavilion, suria klcc and many other malls.
