Overrated Half of the time

My 1st visit but my wife frequently came here about a decade ago while studying nearby. Well the cendol is clearly overrated.. Plain.. Maybe they're switching to cheaper coconut milk. The wife lamented the coconut milk used to be creamy. However i ordered kuewteow which i think one of the... read more

Every time we're in Kuantan Mustafa's is an absolute must especially for my wife (and her simblings,cousins). She swears by this and to her - its the best chendol ever!! The chendol comes in a few variations - best being with pulut (sticky rice). They also have rojak (and rojak with chicken) and ABC (another Malaysian staple - local version... More

Mustafa Cendol not only serve cendol but they also have Mee Mamak and Rojak. The restaurant is an open-air concept and it was packed when I arrived. Choices of cendol available (Biasa, Pulut, Ice Cream) I tasted the Mee Mamak, Rojak & Cendol and all of it was good. My daughter had the Maggie Goreng. Surprisingly, the Maggie Goreng was... More

Have been around for ages. One of the best cendols in Malaysia. Coconut milk is fragrant, so is the palm sugar. Must try when in Kuantan.

Mustafa, knows like nobody else how to present a proper cendol. The Cendol at this small but busy restaurant is just the best and extremely authentic. Mustafa draws me in again and again.

I remember visiting this place once, months ago, during a hot sunny day. It is located along the way Jalan Teluk Cempedak, next to Shell Station. I was told that this is the best cendol in Kuantan town. Yup, the cendol was okay. I wasn’t disappointed at all. The best cendol? I beg to differ.

I had the basic cendol with red beans. The cendol itself was tasty and pandan-fragrant and I could just eat that on its own. The red beans were cooked just right, with the beans soft but still whole, not mushy. Give me a bowlful of just the red beans and I'll be content! It had just the right amount of... More

I tried the special cendol, which had the addition of red beans, sweet corns, and jelly. I could say the cendol suited to my likings, though not the best one that I'd ever tasted. My friend ordered rojak ayam, and my oh my, I totally love the peanut gravy served together! A must-go!
