It's a pretty good place to get standard versions of local dishes... There are not really any genuine specialty dishes to be found here. It's really just local fare to appeal to the tourists. If you want something a bit more authentic you have to dig a little deeper... However for the atmosphere and the price, it is probably worth... More

If you love local Malaysian delights and typical coffeeshop fare, look no further. Fried noodles, seafood, barbecued meats, hot curries featuring the best of Chinese, Malay and Indian tastes. From the humble and ubiquitous roti prata to mouth watering crabs, lobsters and a variety of fish and meats. The mix is incredible. To top it all, you get to dine... More

yes the street is full of Malaysian varieties but for Muslim, you can only find a few stalls. So we prefer to eat at in mall food stores.

if you want to taste and experience malaysia cuisine, you have come to the right place. There are so many varieties of food you can taste here. But you must come at night to try it because in daylight you won't find any of them.

First off, forget the naysayers, yes, it is touristy and overpriced but what a great bustling experience with some unbelievable food at still cheap for European prices. We go there every time we are in KL and usually eat at the same place, 2nd restaurant from the top with the red plastic chairs. The spicy mango chicken gets me everytime... More

the street in the very center of Kuala Lumpur's shopping and night life districts. they have the best Thai, Chinese, Seafood, food on stick, BBQ, and of course the very delicous chicken wings. A bit over priced but can safely say money well spent. It is a must for any food lover!!!!!

Variety of local dishes is awesome. Sit on the street, chill out with friends with a plethora of different dishes on offer. You must go for the experience, sit and people watch too.

Having lived and worked in hotels in Kuala Lumpur for many years, a trip to the "local foodie" capital is essential. It is "slap dash" but also a cheap and cheerful way to mingle with locals and enjoy Malaysian favourites! We quite often talked about how flavours are kept in the wok itself as the same dish is tossed and... More
