Street shops full of Indian cloths and restaurant but mostly from the North Indian region Tamil Nadu. But interesting restaurants full of spicy flavours and interesting vegetable dishes. The cloths shops are more catered for cheap Indian women's wear. A must try area if you are into Indian spicy food and etc...👳🏽🙄

I will not call it Little India however South India because it gives resemblance of Southern part of India. The music that plays there, most food available and people as well. Just ok to have average quality food that they call Indian food (not same obviously taste wise), however good to calm down your cravings. Lot of shops that sell... More

There's nothing special about it. It houses a very large Indian population, and is infused by their culture. Otherwise there are a few local stores with below average merchandise.

I went their for the fabric shops, and they do have beautiful stuff and variable prices from 69 RM to 7000 RMs.. Don't go there for lunch because the restaurants are very crowded and very warm inside!! It's not a must see actually!

The biggest food joint at sight was Seetharam Indian Curry House. We ordered plain dosa and Rawa Onion dosa. The food served was pathetic in... More

Went during the day and enjoyed a couple of hours seeing the markets, street food, shops an smells of incense and spices. The area seemed a little spread out but was easy to get to on the mono rail to sentral. Worth a couple of hours for a look.

Little India, true to its name is the hub of Indian stuff. Indian food, groceries are available here. Given the vast Indian origin population in Malaysia, this place caters to them. For tourist from India, its the best place to eat. Has some good South Indian restaurants. Don't miss to see the Torana Gate, inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi, standing... More
