Passed by casually to go to a muay thai gym in that place and only afterwards i discovered is a well know street of the city. Well it worth a walk through it by night. Crowded with locals, lot of street food places to dine in. If locals eat there means food is good and for sure is cheap too.... More

I love oriental food. I checked out dishes to have at certain places and found them. Yes it was cheap. But the food was average at best. I don't see the big deal here. It seemed to be one big tourist trap. I'd rather have some better quality in a restaurant....so I did.

We has some nice food down Jalan Alor, and the bustling atmosphere of the night market is great. It is very much aimed at tourists and you will get yelled at a lot. We are at Buh Brothers and it was yummy. I would also recommend the dim sum stall at the end of the road.

Only stopped for a bite to eat which was typical Malaysian Chinese style. The area had plenty of enterprising ramshackle street food charm with lots of food cooked over charcoal to waft tempting aromas under your nose. The range of food available was good and prices pretty cheap. Didn't spent long enough for a comprehensive review but all I can... More

Jalan Alor is very crowded at night. This place full with restaurants and tourists. A lot of variety to choose from but be aware of extra costs. Always check the price before you order any food.

Please turn Jalan Alor into a Pedestrian Street. The cars going through now always knock into people walking at Jalan Alor.

A very "well worth the effort" thing to do. Hot, humid, smelly, but most of all tasty. Here you can try all manner of foods. Be adventurous try them all.

Plenty of good food choices, from the snacks to big eaters fare. Hala food is found at the end of the street, away from the Chinese stalls.
