You must try the food at this restaurant called Suraya Seafood. They open at about 5.00pm and go on until 4.00am The wonderful thing is their dishes that come out for supper at 1.00am Its the famous Nasi Kerabu, Nasi Dagang, Laksam and traditional desserts all hailing from the state of Kelantan. Freshly prepared and tastes so wonderful

If you want to taste authentic Malay cuisine in an authentic way with the locals -- this is it! The food is delicious and a great selection! We went with my cardiologist cousin so it is highly recommended! Not fancy but worth the visit -- you will return!!

I was first introduced to Kampung Baru, a traditional Malay village area in the centre of KL with a backdrop of Petronas Towers. It is a chance to see examples of traditional Malay houses and a more traditional way of life. It is a photographers paradise. There are many places to eat and the food tastes and smells amazing. I... More

This place seems to be a lot less touristy than some of the other food centers in KL (for example Jalan Alor). Take the metro to the station with the same name, exit, turn right, follow the road and you're there. I noticed locals seem to like this place and a lot of them buy the meals and take home.... More

It was a fantastic experience going to Kamnpung Baru more to be among the locals than for the food. We ate a few things from stalls, and it was all great, but it was better just being around the locals at what is clearly a local market area (not a tourist destination). We went on a Saturday night, and they... More

We were taken by friends and were a little hestitant at first. After 4 of us pigged out on fantastic food and beer for less than A$25 for all of us we went back the next night. Great sticks, chicken wings in a very different & busy environment.

Based on all great reviews we have decided to head to this night market on our arrival to KL on a Saturday night. Well it might be your place if you are into grilled pieces of cheapest hotdog, crabsticks, "shrimps" made of same crabsticks, half-dried "fresh" squids or fish-heads in plenty of curry. Otherwise spare your time and stomach. Somebody... More

Kampung Baru - as another reviewer said, one LRT stop from KLCC yet somehow a world away! Trains to and from KB run until midnight, so take public transit to and from - very convenient and cheap (~RM 1.30 from Ampang Park). [Tip]: If visiting at night, take a RIGHT when you exit the train station to curve around to... More

KL's Kampung Baru is an amazing slice of small town life in the middle of the city centre. Kids stop, stare and say hello in that way you generally only experience in areas that are genuinely unused to tourism. Despite a reasonable amount of promotion from tourism bodies relatively few tourists venture into this unique enclave and yet its only... More
