“Food is great market is poor.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

The noodles are great, the seafood is hit and miss. The market is a large amount of the same thing. The quality of the market compared to Hong Kong or china is poor.

“In a month in Malaysia this is by far the best night market we have been to.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

The highlight of KK for us, the night market has so much charm and atmosphere it really is a gem. Unlike the fake 'for tourist' markets this is very much for locals. The food is very tasty , fresh and cheap (large tuna steak for RM7, two skewers of king prawns for RM10, chicken fried rice for RM 5) and the craft market next door is also worth a look. A must see while you are here.

“YUM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

There are no words but YUM when it comes to the KK Night Market. Everything was really cheap and really tasty. We went nearly every night that we were there because it was just so cheap! And you get a lot more than you expect too. I ordered some chicken fried rice and I got this HUGE portion. It was absolutely deeeelicious (:

“Best for Souvenirs & Pearl Jewellery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

There is actually a KK Night Market which is different from the Filipino Market near the waterfront. The KK Night Market is near Jalan Kampung Air where there are transvestites 'on duty'.
It is only set up at night on a large carpark. It is run by locals & I found that it has the best price for knick-knacks, souvenirs & pearl jewellery.
You can also find knock-off products from popular brands here & local 'sex' enhancement tonics on sale here.
Be sure to haggle for anything & everything.
