You can get plenty of nice and delicious indian food here. From curry chicken, mutton to roti canai(indian pancake), prata and etc. Not to forget the nice warm 'teh tarik'..milk tea prepared in 'style'. Shops open till late at night.

If you interested in Sarees and other Indian dresses this is the place to go. It has Goldsmiths and money exchangers. The eating places are not posh. More like cafes but they serve tasty South Indian/Sri lankan food at very reasonable prices. Good quality masal dosai is available, usually after six. Well woth a visit.

Felt more like a disco than a shopping street. Every stall was blasting Bollywood music. I did not know there were so many varieties of saris and headscarves. Have to admit the colors and designs were impressive. Plenty of good food in the area as well. A worthwhile side-trip if you have the time.

This is a feast of colorful photo opportunities. watching traders making Roti and cooking them on the side of the streets. The flower garlands sellers making the garlands is mesmerizing. By day or by night this is a must.

This is a pretty and interesting place to talk a walk .I thought it would be larger but there were some interesting shops ,all selling traditional Indian food,clothing and jewellery. We saw some curry houses but it was too early for dinner so we passed them up. We spent about a half hour here .

Little India is way more active in the evening then Chinatown. Restaurants and Shops are open till late. It is a good place for having a late night tea, juice or coffee with the locals.

From authentic Indian food, spices and textiles, Little India in Brickfields is Kuala Lumpur's parallel to Chinatown in Petaling Street. Retail establishments here are opened from morning till night and prices here are relatively cheap for tourists. This place is a haven for tourists. In addition to the vast array of Indian restaurants like Sri Pandi - a must for... More
