We re-visited Kuala Lumpur last month and we had a tour for the first time at Little India (we were not able to visit this place before due to time constraints). Anyway, our hotel was just near the area so we decided to visit the place... I wasn't expecting to feel like I was in India. Well, I have not... More

I don't know what's not to like about Little India in Kuala Kumpur. The streets are colorful, the food smells good and there is always something going on. Be sure to stop at one of the local places for something to eat, but watch your stomach. Crazy place. Worth it.

You would think you were in India when you're here!! Indian restaurants, shops etc all jostle for space alongside older residential properties. Everything looks like it is owned / run by Indians. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Worth a courtesy visit as the Indian influence is such a part of modern day Malaysia.....

Its not very happening or a nice place but its worth going there for only for Indian food. Nothing else is great about this place.

We were expecting something a lot larger and weren't too impressed with Little India, and we didn't think there was too much choice for food. It's close to Sentral station and can be easily walked to if you want to check it out. We also managed to find some reasonable curries although we weren't sure what we were getting.

This was a dirty place. Not many shops around. Can finish walking right around in 15 mins. There wasn't many items to purchase. Seemed like a waste of time.

Most of the people here write their reviews on Jalan Masjid India (which is close to Masjid Jamek station), a place that is about 3-4 km away from Little India (nearby Kl Sentral). Little India also got handful of Indian shops (mainly Buddhist or Hindu) and stalls but the amount is not comparable with Jalan Masjid India. Masjid India side... More

Little India Literally is a Little India Tucked in KL. Colorful, Good Location for Photographs with the India Style Archways and Elephant Statues, Fountains. Sarees, Bangles, Flowers, Souvenirs you will find everything. Don't Miss the Indian Restaurants serving Dosa and Uttapams. We also a spotted few residential buildings with clothes being dried in Balconies, That's Little India for you.

Loud, in your face, full of smells, chaotic, reminds you of India. Loved the place, but the kids were not too keen on the chaos or the garishness. Great food, lots of options, very reasonable prices and reasonable quality. Should have prepared the kids for it by letting them know what they would be getting into.

Here you will find good quality dresses at very good prices in a convenient shopping. Souvenirs and food are also available, with cafes, restaurants and emporiums of dry fruits and nuts...
