What To Expect

Meet your private guide at the AirAsia–Bukit Bintang Monorail station for a personalized 2-hour evening tour of Malaysian cuisine. Discuss local favorites before setting off toward the nightlife area of Jalan Bukit Bintang. Head to the Hutong Food Court for a taste of siew bao (crispy barbecued roasted chicken buns) and chicken curry puff, a pastry filled with savory chicken.

From here it's a short stroll to Jalan Alor, a bustling food street lined with rows of hawker stalls and seafood restaurants. Your guide will help you select the most delicious dim sum, along with a street food tasting of grilled satay lok lok with peanut sauce.

On arrival at the mamak (typical Malaysian eatery) at SK Corner, try the paper dosa, a paper-thin type of pancake eaten with several Indian sauces such as curry or coconut chutney. Before saying your good-byes, wash it all down with a glass of teh tarik, a popular drink of milk tea.

Highly recommended
DanielleM_M, Mar 2023
This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Reka was one of the best guides you could hope for. Very warm, friendly, and super knowledgeable about Malaysia's history and it's diverse culture. You could really tell that she was focused on making sure that her guests have the best experience possible by tailoring everything to their needs. The food selections were absolutely delicious--you will not be disappointed (my recommendation would be to skip lunch so that you have more room for all the tastings)!
Passionate host that went above and beyond!
Bryan_S, Jan 2023
Reka was such a great host by sharing so many great dishes from her home country. She even went above and beyond adding in a few additional places so we could sample more local fare. You can tell she really loves what she does by how excited she was to show us the various dishes from Malaysia. Highly recommend taking this food tour, you will not be disappointed.
A great food experience
Suzanne_H, Nov 2022
Ramesh was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had lots of lovely food and he taught us a lot about the various dishes
Expensive waste of money
Evan_M, Nov 2022
This was a waste of time and money, 5 different things including a burger and 3 snacks. We expected to sample a number of different foods but were disappointed to only have 3 and then a big burger and roti. The host Ragesh was very pleasant and very knowledgeable but no sooner had we started than we were finished in a back street, left to find our way back to a known area.

A great evening, knowledgeable guide, some great food.
Andrew_M, Aug 2022
A great evening, knowledgeable guide, some great food. An extremely interesting couple of hours spent visiting some of those out of the way food vendors, the egg burger was a knockout!!!
Food for thought!
Gavin_G, Jul 2022
This was a really good way to find the hidden gems and local culinary delights. Not everything was a hit from the six dishes as we walked through the busy streets, but there was plenty to enjoy nonetheless. Our guide Siddoz was amazing, really knowledgeable about the food, the city and the country!
Great Food tour experience 💕
Daniela_M, Apr 2022
Amazing food tour! Reka was our guide. She is a super kind and accommodating person, who took the time to walk us around and explain to us how to do street food in KL! She took us to the best spots to have authentic food - you will want to go back 💕. She also gave us great tips and recommendations around the city. We had such a pleasant night with her! We are so glad we took this tour. Thank you.
Good food tour
Dmitri_W, Apr 2022
It’s luck of the draw with guides but we drew well with Siddoz. He knew all the back alleyways and fun food stalls and sprinkled in the right amount of other info.
Not worth the money
Jiri_H, Feb 2020
After we met the guide we went to a food court in a mall where we had first meal. Then we walked along one street with food and finally we to an Indian restaurant where we had just a dessert. The tasting was always just a small piece of food. Nothing special. We learned bits of information but not much. We were not able to taste typical dish which you read about in travel guides. If you go directly to Jalan Alor without a guide you do no mistake and can taste by yourself selecting from menu knowing names of food from travel guide books. It was not worth the money at all.

Great way to spend a night
Jeffrey_P, Oct 2019
In a short time got a good idea about the food in Kuala Lumpur. Tried several foods that I would have experienced without going on tour. The outside food markets were a lot of fun
mamin235, Jul 2019
We were met by staff on given time and place. He welcomed us, walked us to food street which was very close and busy area. He asked as what is our expectation from tour and we told him to learn about local food. But we found out that most of restaurants were selling Chinese food. few were local as well. We didn't enjoy the tour as the knowledge shared with us was about food presentation and eating cultures while our intention was to learn how Malay people prepare their food mainly how they cook. We were not taken to any kitchen where cooking could be seen closely. The tour guide also told us that we selected the wrong tout but actually this tour is supposed to be about Malay food as the name says. The worst part was that tour started at 6pm and finished at 7.20 while it was supposed to be two hours. We were offered to taste three samples from street vendors. I booked the tour with two children 11 and 15. Not enjoyed at all. Not recommended if you want to learn about Malaysian food.

meenu77, Jul 2018
Very bad tour. The guide would not even buy a water for us. DO NOT GET THIS TOUR EVER. WASTED OF YOUR MONEY. Our guide was a freelancer and probably saved money for him. he did not buy enough food to even try for all 5 of us. The worst tour guide and company. Hence 0 stars but I have to select at least one start for my review to be posted or I will give 0 stars.

Denise_M, Oct 2017
Our guide brought us to several food stalls in Bukit Bintang, an area of the city where locals eat, showed us the best of the area. He was not prepared to deal with vegetarians, but we got to taste durian instead!

Tonya L, Aug 2017
This was a perfect food intro to KL! We had a wonderful host in TK who introduced us to the BEST satay I've ever had, yummiest chicken wings and delicious paper thin dhosa and roti! The dim sum and pork pastries were also off the hook! It's so great to walk around with a local expert! Recommend!
