When you have food kiosks for nearly 1 km with different Asian cuisines. When you have scallops, squids, frog porridge, octopus, chicken legs, sea basses, lobster and endless such sea food items on your menu card. When you can enjoy live music and revelry along with your mouth watering exotic food then all you can say is- It's heaven for... More

We visited this area last night looking forward to some street food. We found the touts to be very pushy and loud. The whole area has an unsavoury feel and we did not feel safe. We left without eating. Walking there was quite a nightmare as cars weave in and out and there are few crossings for pedestrians.

Great variety of street food at an affordable price. The street is filled with mainly local food, If you love to try out new food when your traveling this is the best place in KL. its just walking distance from the tram station at Bukit Bintang. Its a must visit if your a food lover.

What a great place to take visitors to KL for a Malaysian food experience. Standout dish would have to be chicken fish! Even people not keen on fish love this. Relatively inexpensive and yummy food. Be prepared though for the inevitable street sellers and disabled entertainers.

A row of restaurants selling mainly local Malaysian food. Touristy for a Singaporean as I am familiar with the food and prices; but still not too costly. Good way to be introduced to local food if you are new to Malaysia but try elsewhere for more wallet friendly options.

Jalan alor is a street where you can find lots of street foods but unfortunately if you are Muslim, may be most food is not for you as they being sold by Chinese people. But a visit to that place is a must and its really close to the main street Bukit Bintang. So a walk over there is a... More

Had meals with a group of friends during our stopover in KL. There were many varieties to choose from. But i wished that the stretch should turn into pedestrian-only during the night time. Too much cars, vendors and people moving around makes it looked messy somehow.

Cars tend to drive past the various food stalls so be careful. We only ate at Wong Ah Wah Restaurant and it has good chicken wings and chicken satay (if you don't mind greasy food). Yes, there are people who will try to sell you selfie sticks. Do go around and try other stalls if you don't mind the crowds... More
