The atmosphere is great, and excellent place to have a bite to eat. It does tend to get really busy and very crowed, just like a market. The place were we went for dinner, had english menus and were so helpful.

Great atmosphere, very good food, cheap, hot and quick. Yes you get bothered by street hawkers but you are in a hawkers area, its all part of the atmosphere. The food is virtually the same no matter which outside area you choose but still worth the visit. We usually have a couple of starters such as beef or chicken satays... More

This is foodie street at night - literally as table are set up on the street. There is a fantastic array of cuisines to choose from. We were recommended to go to the end restaurant that displayed Micky Mouse - it was actually about 6 shop fronts and it was very good.

Really enjoy this market, really good atmosphere with nice food. Very touristy and full of travellers be prepared to be hounded by people trying to get you into their restaurants but that didn't bother is. The food is good pretty much all Chinese and prices are good. There was also great entertainment when we went, musicians came by and sang,... More

I always try to go for dinner when in town And each time different restaurant and none have let me down so far... A must go. But if you are an extreme clean freak don't go. It's has its own hygiene standard

Had heard positives & negatives about this evening dining area & I so wanted to like it. However, was a little disappointed & it was probably that we just chose the wrong place to dine, (there are so many to choose from, so luck of the draw I think). The food was just average and pricey. This street has a... More

While Jalan Alor may be fine used to be better, the problem is getting to it especially at night. If you are with a family, you need to navigate though Jalan Bukit Bintang, which has become very very sleazy in the last few years.
