Little India itself is not a very exciting place. However, the food over there is amazing. You can have a great meal for an equivalent of slightly more than 1 US$. Very recommendable!

Definitely had a lot of fun shopping and dinning around little India during my trip with my mum and sister. The people are friendly and a lot of cheap products to buy! get ready to negotiate!!! Food is amazing really busy but after a while you can get your way through the crowd..

Went to visit the Chinese Temple and couldnt get a taxi back to our hotel so started walking and found Little India/Brickyards by accident. Full of atmosphere and interesting shops. Not a place to spend a lot of time but worth a visit.

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.
