Good tasting food

Good tasty food and a nice welcome. Very busy street for Chinese food that really captures that Asian atmosphere. Street vendors can be a bit annoying.

You can find any kind of cuisine in this street, from Malay, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai to all street foods such as dimsum, satay,.. Open for whole day but only crowded and busy from 6pm to mid-night. Reasonable price, so many types of foood and a crowded atmosphere.

We came here many times and unfortunately notice that prices are easily double or triple compared to small local restaurants. It is definitely a tourist spot, but food and drinks are pricing up much higher year by year. A wonderful experience though to be in when sitting amongst hundreds of tables enjoying food and drinks. If you haven't seen it,... More

In fact, there's nothing outstanding at Jalan Alor. All the meals offered there you may have, for example, at Hutong foodcourt (lot 10 Shopping mall).

Jalan Alor offers average food at a high price (local standards). The place is very crowded, and waiters are very pushy. There are plenty of places in KL that offer much better, cheaper food in a pleasent surrounding.

If you're going to dive into the local culture this is as good as it gets at Jalan Alor where street food is not only abundant, it is everywhere. Prices are mostly really good though the odd vendor nudges towards the tourist indifference by pushing them up. Try the noodle dishes or satay sticks and chicken wings. Seafood is awesome... More

Our local friend took us here one night for seafood dinner and told us that both tourists and locals congregate here for good food. Indeed, the food was excellent and very reasonable even for KL standard. Most of the restaurants were operated by Chinese Malaysians so you can expect a lot of Chinese seafood dishes with a Malay twist. I... More

If you like popular places, cheap food, the crowd, mix with local culture, this is the place. There some restaurant that lacks quality but some others are very nice. Just try your luck and try different food stalls, hope you can find your favorite one

All malaysian food that you want to try can be found in Jalan Alor. The prices can be a bit high. Order seafood dishes, any type of noodles, satay, chicken wings, etc . All kinds of fresh juices too. Try durian, the King of fruit too!
