Decent place if you want to go and buy asian clothes or jewellery but that's about it. The eateries are quite interesting but mainly vegan and vegatarian places. For all who have been to Soho Road in Birmingham, this place is a slightly cheaper alternative to Soho Road, and a lot less glam. My wife loves this place, I dont.... More

Great for buying Asian clothing or going out to eat. Lots of jewellery shops. Best time to go is on Diwali. Lots of goldsmiths.

When ever I go to Leicester I visit this area as it is full of lovely saari shops and is somewhere different to visit. There are also some good gold shops here.

This area has been slowly going downhill for 20 years. It was like a mini taste of Gujarat. It had lots of interesting independent shops such as Friends Electric. The Gujaratis have mostly moved on or passed away from old age and it is now becoming a Pakistani ghetto full of takeaways, litter, rude behaviour yobs and bad driving just... More

There really isn't much to report,multiple restaurants,and many take aways.Apart from the odd saree shop,and a few jewelry shops,you can find most of these premises in any Asian area.I don't understand why this is supposed to be a tourist attraction.

Most of the shops don't open until after 11am. So if you fancy having an Indian breakfast you will have to go else where. Food in many restaurant is good. This place is like little India. you can buy Bollywood DVDs ,CDs Indian outfits ,jewellery and lots more.

It's around the corner from highcross but completely different. That's because of its history. Many immigrants of Asian origin moved to this road in the first half of the 20th century after the Highfield area had become saturated. Many started businesses here too. This gave the road a distinctive character in regards to the restaurants and stores where you can... More
