There were so many types of laksa; we were spoilt for choice! Ended ordering the Asam Laksa which tasted heavenly. Cendol was so-so.

We had one meal there since it's strongly recommended by the owner of our guesthouse, as it's very famous for Malaysian people. Well, I think the food is fine, but not that impressive. and the price is not that cheap either. Talked with a lady who traveled there from another city with her son, she said the flavor was not...

We ordered a Baba Laksa (RM 6) which tasted absolutely delicious. The laksa soup is less concentrated compared to the one in Singapore but it just tasted delicious - "coconuty", spicy but not overly spicy, a hint of sweetness. We also ordered a Baba Chendol (RM 4) - it's again very "coconuty", roughly crushed ice - tasted average to me... More

I like the Nonya laksa but not the BaBa laksa. The chendol was good but I think it might have been over charged for their local standard. I think if not for the gula melaka, it is just a very normal chandol. The deep fried finger food was quite bad. A bit hard to chew on.

Good nyonya food, big portions, fresh ingredients. Filled to the brim during weekends and public holidays. I visited on a Monday morning for a peaceful meal, which was good and tasty and also affordable. The previous day, since the place was too packed and queue was long, ventured to the next door (86) for cendol, which was surprisingly better than... More

Great! It is a small place but worth the visit. Will try their dry curry noodle with yong tau hoo in my next visit.

I been here few times because of the Asam Laksa is good. So many people and sometimes you have to queue for you to eat. I love the cendol because it is so good.

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
