We had dinner here last night - around 8pm. It was a busy night on the street - great for people watching and a musician was a few feet away singing some oldie's but goodies. Pad thai, pineapple rice, sweet and sour chicken and green curry. All delish. We ate every bit. Plus some ice cold Singha - yum. There... More

There are lots of places to eat. Inside of a restaurant, at a table on the street, or just picking up food at one of the stalls. Lots of variety & we found the price pretty good. The whole street has a real buzz to it. Its fun.

We arrived early and and there weren't too many people but it gets crowded during the night. Lots of restaurants along the road serving seafood. We settled in one resto and ordered a crab, singapore curry noodles and some drinks. The crab was small (compared to the fresh one shown to us) so maybe when crab is cooked, it shrinks?... More

I was disappointed that there wasn't enough choices for local cuisine. However, at least the food was good and there was pretty much good variety especially for seafood.

Visited KL several times over the last few years and generally stayed in Bukit Bintang area. Japan Alor has plenty of choices and although it is popular with tourists it also gets plenty of the locals eating there. The food choice is extensive and of good quaility The only small downside is the pretty basic toilet facilities inside some of... More
