I spent hours at this place, because I kept on thinking that something good will come up- but it did not. There is nothing special about this place except for some lights I suppose and there a few good plus cheap Indian food places. My mother spent some time buying spices so you could go there if that is what... More

Maybe I was there at the wrong time, but honestly once I got there, I wasn't quite sure what to do there. There are some shops, some restaurants, some vendors but i've seen very few. I walked around for a bit, and haven't seen anything of interest, it seemed like a pretty normal residential area to me. If not for... More

Well worth the visit, full of brilliant colours and wonderful smells, from the spices and the food, not as big as Little India in Singapore but just as interesting.

Local Indians can shop for groceries and clothes but not for Indian tourists. Indian food is easily available here. If craving for that - there is Gopal restaurant.

Good restaurants for authentic northern and southern Indian food, colorful temples, typical Indian shopping from clothing to spices to movies and everything in between, and colorful atmosphere that makes Indian neighborhoods interesting.

Another congested corner with lots of indian shops with questionable authenticity. I being an indian could not find much reflection of India in these shops. You can walk in and walk out in less than 1 hour. Be ready to haggle if you find something interesting. You can pick up souvenirs which again are not authentic and can be purchased... More
