Actually found this by accident, only go at night, it's one street of absolute mental street food carnage. All al fresco plastic seats really don't look closely hawker food stall with no gaps. Starts off Chinese moves through a bit of Vietnamese and into Thai. Not for the faint hearted but if you can just pick one for whatever reason... More

This street is small and great for people watching, but the restaurants are fairly average food wise. We tried a couple of places and while the atmosphere around the place is good with buskers etc, you don't go there for the food.

I live near Jalan Alor and the variety of food satisfies my cravings. Malaysian, Chinese, Indian, Arabic, Thai, Vietnamese .... you name it! It's safe for me to walk around without having to worry about pick pockets. And don't leave without a foot massage after dinner 😁

Somehow this place was overrated. Only a street with similar vendor and lack of authenticity. Nothing compare to Night market in Thailand or even Taiwan. I personally think it's just a waste of time to visit this place and the food also tourist price.

Like most of KL, Jalan Alor is undergoing renovations. The middle of the street is dug up and under some sort of construction. But funnily enough, this doesn't stop the food vendors from setting up tables and chairs amongst the rubble. It certainly makes it difficult walking along, trying not to slip or fall. Factor in the promoters, trying to... More

Foodies would enjoy walking down this street to take in the diverse aromas and local fare - there are many many shops to choose from, with a variety of local delicacies. Price is affordable, and even locals visit the street to dine.
