Lots of authentic Indian products, services and food here. The aromas from the restaurants and burning incense is wonderful.

It has a good range of food. By far the best. Best not to drive here. Be hungry, go in the morning and eat your way till dinner. Cultural? I don't think so but great food.

Nice place to be in, This is typical Indian place in Malaysia. You will get Indian food, people, shopping options and feel of being in India. One way of entering this place is just from exit of Mid Valley mall. This place also have Haldiram, which offers snacks (Haldiram snakcs), food, grocery items.

Although it is not that easy to figure out the way to get there, great to discover this area after all. Other than restaurants, supermarkets selling mango, vegetables, seasonings for curry, other daily goods would provide you with affordable souvenir to purchase.
