Coming from Dubai, this was a must visit for street-side cuisine, predominately chinese. We had to have seafood (e.g. Chilly crab) and pork ( black pepper ribs and were not disappointed. Having a beer for dinner outside, even better. Great value for money and variety of cooking styles, we ate there 3 out of 5 nights. Highly recommend!

It is an amazing place to have hawker street food and fresh seafood!! Everything from your local Malaysian dishes to amazing fresh seafood cooked to your liking. The street itself on one side is covered with individual restaurants that lay side by side with each other competing for your hunger!! Tables are set out in the middle of the street... More

Try the 'LAMB SATAY' at 'Alor satay' situated inside 'Mook thai seafood restaurant' at the end of Jalan Alor. This was definitely one of the best Satay's I've ever eaten. (And I had a lot ;)) Soft, tender. spicy with a nice barbecue flavor !! Just great!

Great location for cheap and quick street food. Lots of variety and available all night. Very cheap prices and lots of locals eating there too.

Every evening this place just comes alive. The food is superb and ridiculously cheap. A great place to dine although don't expect silver service and some of the chairs or stools are very uncomfortable. We loved the atmosphere and would like to return for another visit. Highly recommended!

I was there about 7 years ago. I remembered it was a melting pot of great food cooked by locals and stalls owned by individuals. When I went back in June 2014, I was utterly disappointed. Food quality was bad. Why? The food is now cooked by all the foreign helpers! It is very rare not to see locals cooking... More

Huge range of street and indoor dining choices available: Vietnamese, Chinese, Malay, Indian and Thai food. We ate delicious Vietnamese spring rolls, beef salad and flat noodle dish. Food is very inexpensive and great value.

Jalan Alor is not a restaurant but a Hawker market in the true sense of the word! Jalan Alor is a street only a few minutes’ walk from the busy shopping centre of Sungai Wang in Bukit Bintang where there are hundreds of tables on the street with cars still driving, albeit slowly only a metre from where you’re sitting!...

It's yours for the pickings, it doesn't matter how fussy you are there is something there for you. All types of seafood, beef, pork vegetables you name it you will find it there. Plenty of seating even though it looks like the tables are all taken you will find one. We ate there every night, food was so cheap but... More
