My friends from KL read good reviews about this place and asked me to bring them there. My last few visits here were not very impressive. This time, I decided to give it another go. As usual, the service is bad. Better take away rather dining in if you are picky about services. The frozen cendol of course not aunthentic... More

I have read some bad reviews here on the Cendol and I guess it's highly subjective or either that the servings are inconsistent. I have been frequenting this place for several times now and so much so, I have made a point to stop by each time I'm in town for it's Cendol...! So far for me, I absolutely love... More

Went there with 2 friends from KL. Had cendol "Eight Precious TReasures" EPC and EPC with durian. Very nice and the gula melaka smells very nice. Didnt try the nyonya laksa this round but 2 months ago, had the nyonya laksa and it taste yummy.

For those (foreign tourists aside) who gave 3 stars and above possibly never had good cendol or laksa before. The locals will never recommend this to visitors as Jonker88 mainly caters for tourist. I revisited this place again due to the sudden rain which I decided to give it another go while waiting the rain to subside. As usual, the... More

Curry mee was nice and addictive, no 10 on the menu. Didn't try the Assam laksa though. Chendol was average at best, taste like one prepared by one who is complacent with their fame. Ice was not shaved well and chunky. Very little gula melaka and green chendol. I think we can find better chendol elsewhere. Don't waste your carbs... More

Take a walk into Jonker's heart and you will find an all-day crowded cafe Named Jonker 88. Impeccably crowded on weekends as this is the time where people from around Malaysia and even Singapore will come to visit Melaka, it is difficult to get a seat. I had and experience before of waiting for 25minutes for a table and having... More

We end up in Jonker88 after going through a few websites suggesting to try the food here. We went during lunch time and the place was packed. They have very limited place to sit so we end up waiting nearly 20mins to get a table. The quality of the food there is fantastic. Their dessert is definetly a must try!... More

Having tried Jonker 88's cendol many years back, I knew they weren't that good. But I still give them a try this time in my latest trip to Melaka. Yup, their cendol is still average. The only saving grace is the beautiful decoration in the shop.

Laksa is diluted and does not have the laksa aroma. Can forget about spending time queuing for it. For me, the Penang Road chendol is still the best and this may rank 2nd.

Their chendol is to die for. Fragrant, generous amount of gula melaka. Red beans and green jelly is soft. One of the best. Do go there in the day so as to avoid mad crowd
