Not a comfortable place for hang out, too crowded, lack of seats. I tried Baba Durian Cendol, nothing's special about it. So -so. I didn't try the food because at that moment I can't find a place for seat, it was on Saturday, week end and that place full with people. The price for various es cendol starting between RM... More

Caution: not for those who can't stand the heat or long queue. Plus points: simply awesome, excellent nyonya food. Very very delicious and appetising. Large portion. Value for money. Try their laksa Kahwin and nyonya Assam laksa. ABC dessert was so-so only. Chicken rendang was awesome too. Minus: too hot, too unkept, too crowded (capacity of seating only 20 to... More

The food is good, and price is of value, but the packed environment makes it hard to enjoy. The place is always packed, of course, because of its good food and good location (in Jonker Walk). The Nyonya Kahwin is to die for, and the cendol is always the best seller. But the lack of seats and the humid weather... More

They are famous of their Nyonya Cendol, Nyonya Curry Laksa, and Baba Salad! i think they taste relatively good but a little too pricey. You have to que up really long for food and also tables.

We had the famed assam laksa. It was good but not legendary. The broth is clear compared to the Penang version. Worth a visit if you're in town, but not a must eat.

This busy restaurant serves the best Laksa we have had traveling through malaysia. We loved the atmosphere inside this restaurant. The coconut laksa was the best! Tip: If you're more then one person let one get seats inside while the other(s) get the food. That's what the locals do and it will get you a seat more easily.

Honestly quite chaotic. it was packed durimg peak seasons, no ushers. It is a weird arrangement as it is an small coffee shops and yet thestalls onside seems to be operated by individual stall owners. Much like a foodcourt except that it is small place that I reckon can only sits 20-30 people max. We came for the chendol, it... More

Don't bother with the desserts. Just head straight for the asam laksa if u like sweet and sour soup. Or if u prefer curry, they have curry noodles too. The place is always crowded though so one has to wait for his turn.

We went there specially for its famous Cendol/Chendol and were a little disappointed. It is generally good, but I have tasted at least one that is much better in Malacca (Aunty Lee), just the night before. But I do like the atmosphere at Jonker 88 with the traditional tables and people crowding around. I even saw a number of people... More
