The many stalls covering formerly the area dominated by Indian textile shops have been moved away from the street offering space for pedestrians. Elegant white stone benches have been placed for people to rest on, this is a busy neighbourhood with many wholesale emporiums, a tall shining white building the newest one. A flower inspired awning has been erected in front of the mosque.

I am writing this review on night markets in KL to stop the confusion that is on this page. It is no wonder why some members such as AristonLondon below are asking where it is?

Night markets, known locally as 'Pasar Malam' are found all over KL, and generally consist of a local market, open from early evening until late, and often sells local cooked food and general produce to the local community. They are not particularly touristy, but well worth a visit to experience local food and culture at local prices! Typically they rotate from area to area depending on which day of the week it is.

Most of the photos attached to this page are of a daily tourist market in Chinatown on Jalan Petaling, for which there is a separate tripadvisor listing, and is often not called a pasar malam, especially as it is often completely closed by 10pm. The geographical listing of this page however is in Little India; there is a pasar malam on Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman next to Masjid India. It is only open on Saturday evenings.

Other large night markets in KL include one on Taman Connaught in the suburb of Cheras, which is held on Wednesday nights, the Setia Alam Pasar Malam in the suburb of Klang on Saturdays, and the one in the trendy suburb of Bangsar on Sunday nights. All are a little way out from central KL and really require the services of a taxi. There are plenty of other night markets to choose from, and if you want to see which markets are on where and what days, I have linked a website which gives very good information with the authors having visited each one personally to validate!

Deer is banned in many parts of the world. If you want to eat this legally, visit this place. You can also find a lot of street food. Visit in the evening to explore the most.

There seems to be some confusion here as people are uploading photos of the Chinatown market (on Petaling Street) when this (according to the address) is about the night market in Little India. For a visitor, I think going to the market is not really about shopping... I went to maybe 4-5 street markets in KL and they are pretty much the same with watches, DVDs, football/soccer outfits, etc. Very few arts and crafts (for that go to Central Market). What IS interesting is the general atmosphere and the FOOD. The Little India night market is about food as far as I am concerned. There are stalls with snacks, sweets, take away and even places to sit out and eat. It is a real adventure with bustling crowds and hawkers calling out prices- we tasted so many things and had dinner on the street under the glowing moon and stars lights strung up over the street. A little overwhelming sometimes (especially since we had only arrived that day) but it was an exciting introduction to the city. Go!

If anyone can help
We're in KL right now looking for the night market. The one in china town is just one Street with about 10 stalls and the one that is given on the address above in Masjid India is a small Indian market that is just closing.
Where is this amazing market everyone is talking about ????

This is the place to buy gold jewellery. Forget the chain stores in shopping complexes - they simply do not have the variety or volume you will find in these stores. There are many gold stores in this street and around the corner from Madras textiles. Gold is 22 ct and sold at the going daily world gold market price per gram plus a price for labour/workmanship (which is
printed on each item's tag). Check the price of gold on the Internet or in the daily paper. This is where the locals go to buy gold. You can
only haggle on the labour cost. Do so.

Having been around 11 times to Malaysia and each time transiting by Jalan Masjid India, I can assure you that it is there that you will see the real Malaysia ! Bustling with activity, the food court open 24 hours, the shopping centres, the walking street, the street massages, the cheap hotels, the LRT (Masjid Jamek Station), easy taxis, all is there ! And the Saturday night Market just by Lorong Tar. So dont ask yourself whether to go there or not ! Just go to Jalan Masjid India on a saturday evening and then you decide ...

We went to the night market today. There are lots of hawker stalls. We had dinner at 9pm and it was so busy. We ate prawns, calamari, beef noodles, ribs, satay strips, ice kajang and drinks. It was delicious and only cost 105 ringgits. We then went to the night market and bought tops - Ralph Lauren, soccer tops, quicksilver, Oakley glasses and necklaces. All this for 250 ringgits. Make sure you barter as it's a lot of fun and the stall holders expect it. We walk down a parallel street to go to back to our hotel in Time Square and we saw lots of prostitutes in amongst stores and bars. An unexpected experience with three kids - 5, 13 and 16. Having said that we still felt safe as there was security around.

Fabulous colours, smells, tastes and shopping!

Always barter... If they say 120... You say 15... And start from there. Don't feel awkward, they expect it. You can get some good replica goods but a lot of it is also pretty rubbish. You need to know what you are looking for before going, and had an idea of what you want to pay.

The food stalls are fab... Try the noodle dishes or dumplings. Delicious!

It is extremely hot, sticky, and busy in the evening, not ideal if you're claustrophobic or have children with you.

The 'Night Market' is also there in the day but not as busy. We went to both and felt the day market was much more accessible.

There is a bank at the end of the market (think it's north) as you will need cash. Watch for pickpockets and smile and say 'No Buying' if you don't want to be hustled.
