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.

Many restaurants in this area. If you visit it during night, it will be easier to know the good restaurants because they are crowded. Nearly the same prices everywhere or with minimal difference. Watch out for what you are asking for because spicy here means extremely hot. In many restaurants you can choose the fish and the crabs yourself. No... More

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

Last I visited this place was over 20 years ago where the stalls are run by local Malaysian . The food now is cook by foreigners that does not provide the authentic Malaysian type of food . I tried the satay and KL Hokkien mee. Both are total disappointment . The stall owners can't even converse in Cantonese , proper... More

Jalan Alor is going through a face lift and will be a food street with Al Fresco dining. We still go back to WAW for our BBQ chicken wing which is now selling at RM10 per piece and Sting ray which still taste as good. WAW have now expanded to 4 units so you can imagine how profitable a business... More

We stumbled across this on our first night in KL. There are a huge variety of restaurants to choose from. It can be overwhelming when you arrive as the people in the restaurant will try to persuade you to try their food and will push their menus at you. I would recommend to walk through and look at all restaurants... More
