Have a walk through it, do not waste more time in it. Nice place to go, do no miss it but does not offer much. Some photos at the entrance of the street and at the monument with elephants and then just a walk through the many little stores with cheap india products.

This place takes you back to India in Malaysia. People don't even for a second feel they are not in India. It is a good place for shopping for Indian Items.

This can't be really listed as as attraction as there isn't much to see. KL Is really stretching it here. Nothing to do...

It was chaotic as compared to other parts of KL.. Gold jewellery shops, saree centre n food joints.. Truly reminded of the India back home..

It doesn't take long to wander around but it is worth going. There are some interesting souvenirs. You can bargain well and the food smells are great. The covered area also gives some respite from the sun!

Good for a stroll and take in a flavour of the Indian quarter or specifically it seems Southern Indian. Plenty of local food if you're interested and a lot of shops selling fabrics and gold which seem to be popular with the locals.

Being an Indian, iI preferably dislike shopping from here or any Little Inida through out the world as my taste of shopping do not match to Indian goods sold here. Though if you miss India, a walk here can make you feel good!

We literally just walked up and down the street as we didn't want to miss our bus but with the music pumping out and being surrounded by Indian shops, restaurants and people in the heat, it was easy to imagine we were elsewhere. If we'd have had more time, we would have planned to eat here and try some of... More

We had some food and it was rather ordinary and could have had the same Indian food in any of the cities that we have traveled. We tried out a few snack places but didn’t find much as for souvenirs. There weren’t that many shops and it isn’t as large as other areas. Come if you are really in need... More
