It is said that this is the longest food street in Asia. Here you can find a variety of Asian food.There are many exotic foods here that you can sit on the table and eat after choosing on the street!Of course, among the thousands of dishes, the only thing I chose was ice cream made with fresh coconut !!

The foreign workers who manned the stalls here were nice. Now, the locals have taken on the job. The locals make no effort in making this a great place. It has slid into seedier realm with lots of filth/dirt around.

Here is the only real Asean street food and controlled by Chef who is brought specially from Asean Countries other than Malaysia, namely Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam and so on. You can taste the cuisine of the Asean countries and go to those countries because in Jalan Alor you can feel the authenticity and freshness of the cuisine of each Asean country. You can also taste a variety of tropical fruits and can relax while massaging the whole body or foot massage for those interested in the activity. If you go to Kuala Lumpur do not forget to include Jalan Alor in diary as one of the must-visit places.

This is definitely a tourist trap. Over priced food that will fail by all Malaysian standards.

Worked by many foreign labourers serving with bad attitude and service. One wonders why the tourism ministry continues to allow such bad images of Malaysia to be conveyed to the rest of the world.

If you are there for great food, go elsewhere. If you are already regretting being there, hang on to your belongings carefully. Lots of thieves, pick pockets and pumps around the place.

This is a busy street, filled with lots of restaurants. There's a good choice of places to eat but lots of seafood options. The vendors do try to get you to go into their restaurant but they're not overly pushy.

My Airbnb is very quiet an oldd at the same time located one step of the amazing jalan alor where you can eat all Asian food 24/7. The place is in the core of Kuala Lumpur happening downtown surrounded by cafes, restaurant, clubs, shopping, massage ... best of city life

This is the place that we like to bring our friends from overseas. The bustle of restaurants and outdoor fruits stalls brings its charm to Kuala Lumpur. We like WAW (Wong Ah Wah) for its 'tai-chow' flavor and the bbq grilled chicken wings here are possibly the best in KL.

Plenty of nice food. Reasonable price. My fav would be the Mongolian bbq stall selling bbq chicken and salted grilled fish.
