The kahwin laksa here is unique and superb (mixing laksa with curry)~~ Would recomend it to anyone who like good food... However the store is not generous with its gula melaka when it come to ice kacang~~ still nice though

The cendol and asam laksa are superb, must try if you come here. Went here twice during recent trip and previous trip, no queuing if you come here for breakfast. The shop opens at 9.30am. Suggest to come here for breakfast to skip the queue.

The standard of the cendol dropped compare to our last trip few years ago. The coconut sugar (gula melaka) is not generous enough and the cendol is frozen, not freshly made.

This is the best cendol I ate in Malaysia. My family visited this restaurant three time in two days. Some kinds of cendol with Melaca sugar are very special. In my opinion, it's better than some famous cendol in Penang. Other foods such as fish cake are also very delicious.

Food is good but not superb. Worth visit but not worth the long queue and stuffy place. Eating pace need to be fast as many will be waiting and eyeing for your seat

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.
