Jalan Alor is no doubt very popular with tourists. It is a bustling night spot. However the food is somewhat pricey and not on a par with the hawker food you would find elsewhere in the Bukit Bintang area. Nevertheless if it is the atmosphere that counts this is the place to be in.

Jalan Alor was shown to me by my brother in law. I loved it! The open air market featured incredible food items (and many for Ramadan), produce, seafood, and juice. I was inspired to take so many pictures, but needed to be careful of other pedestrians and scooters. It's a colorful and interesting place!

I did allot of research about Kuala Lumpur before we touched down, this place was on the top of my list. I was not let down. We arrived at the start of the night and took our time walking around before we choose our spot to eat The restaurant we arrived at was clean and attentive and I can confidently... More

A must do in Kuala Lumpur. To come to this lovely city and not experience the vibrant, colourful Jalan Alor would be a mistake. My children were amazed at the variety of food being sold literally on the roadside. The food was amazing in all the places we tried.

It is seafood , seafood and more seafood . Tried one of the restaurants there ,the food was just mediocre , have seen and tasted much better food in neighboring Thailand . Afternoon it is dead , hardly any places open and the night it is lively , but then I think the place is little overrated . Disappointed.

I strongly recommend this spot for a short trek. The temples on top are real good and are of Tamil in style. Beware of monkeys :(

This is a busy street during the daytime, which is a melly of pedestrians, motorists, street hawkers, fruit carts, etc and by night it transforms into a street full of exotic, delicious food. The ambience is electrifying with street musicians belting out upbeat pop hits and a swarm of people, both locals and foreigners buzzing around looking for a table... More

KL Street food at its best. I've been here multiple times and never get enough of it. There are so many wonderful choices for food (Malay, Chinese, Thai, BBQ) and its reasonably priced. I would recommend trying the chili sting ray, steamed fish, frog porridge and the peppered crab. If you like hawker food then definitely visit Jalan Aloor. I... More
