We went during CNY, despite the crowd..the cendol taste not as good as last time. It might be due to the busy traffic orders. And the stalls are now moved inside instead of out.

I have been coming here for the past 10 over years and it WAS a great place to drop by for the Laksa n Cendol....Unfortunately....it became a little commercialized in recent years and now the food quality has dipped and the prices has risen. I dont think i will suggest this place for some time now

This place is overrated. The food is average, expensive, and service is terrible. You can get much better taste at other places with lower prices. No one manages the queue. Some people might just cut your queue, so beware. Staffs picking up dishes and manning the cashier are all rude. Overall, it was an unpleasant experience.

Best place, one and only if you want Cendol dessert. Don't waste time and money on other places. Nothing beats 88 Jonker. Same goes for Assam Laksa. The best in Jonker. Short para says it all - go try it for yourself! You will be glad on not wasting your tummy on the inferior stalls!

Located in the middle of jonker street. Easy to find. Crowded with people and cheap price. Exotic atmosphere. Try local food Nonya laksa and Baba laksa.

For me... a trip to Malacca will never be accomplished without a meal here.. 😆 Get there earlier..before the lunch hour begins otherwise you'll be queuing in the heat 😄 Reasonably priced.. various kinds of local noodles..dishes.. mouth watering desserts.. just yummy !!

We ordered the rojak, durian chendol and laksa kahwin, which is a combo of both the assam and baba laksas. Laksa was delicious - good start, I thought. But I was wrong. The rojak was not the rojak buah (mixed fruit/veg) we expected, but the savoury rojak sotong kangkung. Tasted a bit weird but was told this is how melaka... More

packed eatery with lots of tourists and locals. Was a bit of a struggle getting a seat, but we got a table eventually after 10 mins. Had he laksa and chendol. Food was average and a little underwhelming
