Ate here three times ( one lunch, two dinners) during our KL stay. Clearly, if you are in the area you will visit, and more than likely, eat here. Whilst we enjoyed the experience, we would not revisit. Food is palatable, on the high side of reasonable, and not really street food. What ever you do, don't try the Durian,... More

This is a very busy and hectic street with food stands and restaurants packed side by side. Prepare yourself for eager people wanting you to eat at their restaurant. This is part of the charm and if you can cope with that then your in for a treat and a vast selection of foods. This is a must to try... More

The food is really nice, real taste of the local culture. Tho it's located in the heart of KL, as a local I don't find it overpriced. I went to a random restaurant (cause all restaurants seem to offer good food, and full of people) but it was worth it. This place is not revamped to look more modern so... More

Everyone who love food off all kinds should come here. It is paradise for foodies from Dim sums to burgers. I had the best thai pad here!

Loved the street and the vibe and all the activity. Thought it was great for that but we ate at one of the large restaurants and the food was well below par. Went back a second time and ate from the cart vendors with better success. The food was better and considerably cheaper so better value eating this way. The... More

Don't do it. It's hit and miss. Unless you get a great recommendation from someone. We chose randomly and regretted the 120ringgit seafood meal that was much much worse quality than anything we have had in Malaysia so far.
