It can be quite dizzying to choose a place to eat in Brickfields. One square kilometer of KL is dedicated directly to the fruits of Indian labour. Whether its south or north Indian, or even Sri Lankan, there is something for you.
My tip for a dynamite hidden gem is this spot.
I ate here more than five times during my two month stay in Brickfields.
Rarely have I found a restaurant that makes such a variety of vegetarian dishes all equally delicious. Their Dal Tarka is dynamite, their chole bhature is the perfect breakfast, their masala dosa is one of the best in KL and their samosas are not to be sneered at.
Expect rather slow service since the boys enjoy looking at their phones more than their customers, but don't let that turn you away from one of the best places to eat authentic Indian food in Brickfields.
These recommendations are just personal opinions based on my palate, things change, chefs get fired or replaced, places open-close, relocate, so take it all with a pinch of MSG and discover your own gems too. But please do try a few of these, they have been researched exhaustively.
