I buy too many every time I go there. They are beautiful. The staff is great. I love the colors and the workmanship is fine. I only buy cotton, hand-embroidered in India. I really want to try the silk ones.

Bought several garments and had a shirt made for my husband. Nothing too much trouble for the staff to get the correct size. Will go again.

A real Aladdin's cave of clothes. Some very cheap but I particularly like embroidered Indian tops which are obviously a little more expensive but still very reasonable. The staff are helpful and friendly. I visit this shop each time I go.

Amazing and beautiful Indian clothes on hand, even for kids. They have a tailor on site and can make almost instantaneous alterations. Service is very friendly and helpful, and the clothes are very reasonable. Don't be fooled by the similarly named knock-off down the street!

Not impressed after my boyfriend was mis-sold two shirts as genuine batik which were not at all - lying to make a sale is not to be respected. Also think the shop is mis-named considering I now know the only genuine batik we saw was...More

Hi Mam, Good evening to you. Firstly i would like to inform you that there is a big confusion between 'Sams Batik House" and "sams collections" as we are just few doors away from each other. We are the original "Sams Batik House'. Our shop...More

Hi good morning, we have many big size kurtis available with embroidery. If you like we can even whatsapp some images to you and we can post it out. Postage to KL is around RM10-20 depending on the weight.

This is little bit tricky. As I can say , it depends how much you buy. If you buy more than 500rm, 10% discount is easy. The remaining is up to you and owner.
