“Best chendol”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

This place serves the best chendol I had ever tried so far in melaka. It's not cheap by local standards but they offer generous portions of the ingredients and therefore, the price is well worth it.

Located right at the entrance to Jonker street.

“Best of the best!!!!!!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

The Tree's durian chendol counter is located within the San Shu Gong building, just at the start of Jonker Street, if you are entering from the Red Square. It's the most amazing dessert you can have on a hot, humid afternoon in June!

The durian chendol is a cut above the rest because the coconut milk is fresh, the red bean is of the right texture, the green worm-like flour added colour to the dessert, the serving of the attap seed is generous, the gulamalaka was sweet and durian was rich in flavour without being too overpowering.

A plus point is the innovative way the dessert is served. It is placed in a container with a cardboard holder in the shape of a durian with the spoon cleverly tucked in at the side.

Even though the queue is long but worth it is definitely worth 100% of your time and money! The only challenge is to find a seat at a clean table in front of the counter to enjoy the dessert.

“A pleasurable place for a break”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Generally clean and well kept, as opposed to the rest of the shops at Jonker. Ample seating in air con comfort. Good shopping downstairs although a little pricey. The iced coffee is worth a try, ESP on a hot day!

The place to buy stuff back to your loved ones to let them know u were in malacca. Buying the Chen Nian Lao Ji is a must because it's extremely good for throat after tasting all the food there.

“Thank God for a place like this”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

It's sanitized, and air conned with ample tables and toilets (tho it could be better kept compared to the rest of the shop). Great variety of products though a little overpriced for Melaka items. You'll paying for the packaging as it looks nice as gifts.
