Too crowded, love the ambiance!

Many stalls that you can choose from, from Chinese cuisine, Malay, Thai, Indian and more. Its more like Jalan Makan (Dine Street)!

This place is meant for tourists Go ask around locals you know, not many will go there for meal ... They serve Malaysian cuisine (mainly Chinese cuisine) along Jalan Alor (off Jalan Bukit Bintang) ... they set their tables on walkway on both sides of the road (cars are allowed to drive through, imagine how dangerous it is ...)

Jalan Alor is not for you if you are into fine dining. What it does have - fantastic atmosphere, cuisine from different parts of Asia, heat humidity. It comprises a whole street of food stalls delivering almost every conceivable cuisine from different quarters of Asia. You may sit at a plastic table with matching chairs, but you will enjoy freshly... More

No visit to Kuala Lumpur is complete without a trip to Jalan Alor for your evening meal. There are street restaurants and hawker stalls, buskers and traders - absolute bedlam but fantastic atmosphere. Whenever I visit my friends in KL we always go to the Charn Kee Tasty Corner towards the bottom of the street on the left. We always... More

A must visit place if you are a lover of Chinese Street food. Crowded markets were almost every thing can be found at a bargain. Delicious sea food and meat dishes all freshly prepared. What's not to love.

Don't miss it, 'nuff said! :) I'm supposed to write 100 characters so suffice to say, great choice of food, atmosphere to match the humidity, cheap, colourful, loud, aromatic, top spot.

Go here at night time when the place is full of people for a fun dinner experience There's a huge selection of stalls serving nearly any Malaysian street food you can think of. Quality will vary from stall to stall so walk around and have a look at what people are eating before you decide. What could be better than... More

Stroll around the street and eat to your heart's content....from so many things to chose from...I am sure you will find something to tantalize your palate. Try the charcoal grill chicken wings, Hokkien mee and a host of sea food. Goes amazing well will a bottle of Skol! Have fun!!

Kuala Lumpur is touted as a foodie's mecca. Believe the hype! You will not find the ultimate food in a 5* hotel or a Michelin Star restaurant. The real food and the real flavors of Malaysia are found whilst sitting on a plastic stool, sweating buckets and drowning in sensory overload of Jalan Alor. Service is good and fast and... More
