Amazing place to eat

definitely worth visiting if you are in KL. I know that the 'greeters' in the street can be quite insistent - they all are along this street - however this place has great food, great atmosphere and great prices. Do not miss this.

We're in KL for 3 nights, have eaten here for the first 2 and will most probably be back again tonight! So many delicious-sounding dishes to choose from and everything we've had so far has been wonderful. Possibly not the cheapest place in KL, or even Jalan Alor, but for those of us used to European (especially British!) prices, a... More

Imagine a hawkers food market where somebody puts all the chefs in individual kitchens under one roof. Where all their specialities are put onto one menu and then the hawkers get you to sit down and bring you all your choices. This is the real deal!! We had 5 choices with rice. Lemon chicken; number 131; Bok choy in garlic... More

This was our first trip to KL so we thought of asking the locals for suggestions on where to get good but reasonably-priced Malaysian dishes. They pointed us to Jalan Alor, a street known for its hawker food stalls, and specifically to Cu Cha Restaurant for the char kway teow, a flat rice noodle dish popular in SE Asia. My... More

I just discovered Jalan Alor and fell in love. I dig the hustle and bustle and the hole-in-wall feel of all the hawkers. It might not be for everyone but worth a try for some of the better Chinese Malay food I've tried. Cu Cha is close to the beginning of the strip if you start from the direction of... More

We went here on a recommendation and we should not have done this. It was pretty disappointing. It seemed to be one of the more expensive places in the food street, with which I do not have a problem but then I also expect something more for the money. This unfortunately did not happen. The spare ribs were good, also... More
