Street during the day and food stalls during the night. If you are the adventurous type when it comes to food and relish tasting local cuisine (which are served to locals)...this is the place to go Next to shopping malls in central kl, you cant miss it. Not for the ones with weak stomachs though as these stalls are mobile... More

Food was average. Ate at a malaysian-thai stall. Slightly pricier than expected, but its all for the experience, so no complains overall.

This is one of my favorite food place in KL for dinner and late supper. Price is relatively cheap and the food is great. A must try is Grilled Chicken Fish. It's a fish that has similar texture and taste like chicken meat. The fried carrot cake with bean sprout is also something worth trying

So much choice of such brilliant food. You can't go wrong with a trip down Jalan Alor. Our favourite were the BBQ places where the chefs grill your meat skewers and you cook your own veggie ones in a boiling broth at your table. A must-eat in KL.

If you are travelling to Kuala Lumpur you MUST take a few hours some evening to visit Jalan Alor. It is an amazing experience to see and hear the sights and sounds of life on this busy bustling street. Stop and have a delicious ethnic meal at any of the street vendors there and do try some of the delicacies... More

even if you don't go here for dinner - I would recommend just going to check it out.....there is a lot of choice, even though they are all very similar styles and menus of the food - just pick one that looks busy as it is very hard to choose as menus and cost are all about the same. the... More

It's a huge street with lots and lots of restaurants and food stalls. Just choose whatever you're craving! Also ate fresh coconut ice cream - AMAZING! This is one fantastic place to have dinner that you just can't miss.

I have visited Jalan Alor several times now and have to say it is quite simply one of my favourite eating streets on the planet!! The range and variety of eating outlets is excellent and you can take your pick from some amazing cooked to order seafood. Cheap, easy and fresh, with a good atmosphere and lots of cold Tiger...

I've always loved eating at Jalan Alor & have been several times. The food that you will find here is mostly Malaysian/chinese food, although there are thai restaurants, Indian Malay foods, or proper Malay cuisine. Along the streets, if you look up, you'll find it lit up with chinese lanterns which gives it a very local/picturesque feel to it, so... More

I discovered this place after having a few drinks nearby where all the nightclubs and bars were. I was extremely impressed with the taste of the street food, live music playing outside the restaurants and being able to taste new things such as sea snails, frogs and fish balls.
