I love cendol and this place, at least for me, serve the best cendol ever. A simple eatery that only offers cendol and pasembor. It is a must visit every time I go back to Taiping. Highly recommend to travelers whenever they are in Taiping.

Their cendol is just tastier compared to Bismillah Cendol. Even their rojak is much better. I would recommend to try both the cendol and find out for themselves which one they savour but my pick is Ansari antyime..

The taste was blend and diluted. Gula melaka was watery unlike those in Jonker Street, Melaka. The ingredient was inadequate

Lovely Malaysian Dessert where all races loved it - it has been here for ages and ages! You may need to come earlier as it could be very crowded or sold out fast! Try to accompany the Cendol with that Malay lady's Assam Laksa selling nearby - the combination is fantastic!

The taste of cendol is just average. I think you can get better taste of cendol in many other places. Rojak is not to my taste, but my family like it. Service was fast and excellent. The shop is quite small, so for us 12 in the family we had to break up and and sat at different tables. Price... More

This cendol stall is just nearby the hotel im staying, walked to here for a try. The cendol is nice and sweet, Pasembur (another kind of Rojak) is good too. THe only drawback is the very limited seat and space. For the food there is nothing to complain.

My favourite place when I crave for a bowl of cendol or rojak in Taiping. I like my cendol with glutinous rice. 😊

Not too sweet, generous portion of Cendol. RM 1.50 per bowl is reasonable. Not the best in the country, definitely is the best in Taiping.
