The atmosphere in Jalan Alor at night is fantastic. The whole place is buzzing with tourists and locals eager to sample the wonderful selection of food. My mouth waters at the thought. To sit and watch the buskers and to be dragged into eateries by the enthusiastic waiters is all part of the fun. Not 4 star but so much... More

In KL, we enjoyed eating like the locals at their fastfood restaurants like in KLCC spending around 10 Ringgit per person only. So eating at Jalan Alor (several restaurants that extends up to the streets), was a bit expensive for us. The food was ok but our bill reached 100 ringgit for a 4 person meal. So if you love... More

The hawker stalls and restaurants along Jalan Alor are a nightly part of many peoples trips to KL. The food is fresh, the air is tingling with flavours and the world seems to have suddenly crowded in to the street. Take the time to walk the length before you commit to a food choice - only because grazing from one... More

There are huge selection of Malaysian food there, and they are nicely done. While not priced most economically, but neither are they outrageous. Quite touristy, but offers great at atmosphere. If it is one's first time in KL, i would say is a MUST go.

Lots of food here, its more a novelty for first timers than a regular place for a regular like myself. I take my friends here for the experience , but there a much more amazing places to find food than here. Again, first time in KL, I think you must come here..

Don't miss this.........noise, bedlam, frenzy, excitement, all in the name offering really high quality food and drink at exceptionally low prices. Go on, give it a go, you'll surely see something on a plate that you have never, ever seen before in your life

Coconut ice cream was divine & the best satay at Wong Ah Wah, which is located at the very end. A lively & busy street.

Jalan Alor is a road by day and at night turns into lots of street restaurants. They still let one lane of traffic down the street but cars are travelling slow. Just plastic chairs everywhere but food is fabulous and cheap. A huge meal with beer cost us about $15 per head. Try the chicken fish!
