Oak Tree Road, also known as Little India, is a rapidly growing South Asian-focused commercial strip in central New Jersey's Middlesex County, the U.S. county with the highest concentration of Asian Indians.
The Oak Tree Road strip runs for about one-and-a-half miles through Edison and neighboring Iselin, New Jersey, near the area's sprawling Chinatown and Koreatown. This zone is the largest and most diverse South Asian cultural hub in the United States. According to the 2017 American Community Survey, 42.6% of Iselin residents identified themselves as being Indian American, the highest for any census-designated place in the United States.
Little India in Edison and Iselin is home to over 400 South Asian business establishments, including dining, apparel and electronics retailing, and entertainment. Over 60 Indian and Pakistani restaurants alone are found in the neighborhood.
