Go for lunch, good Laksa and Chendol. We are westerners but the Chendol is like an ice cream sunday. Make sure you try it. Very reasonably priced and if it were redecorated it would lose it's charm. If you don't like spicy, ask for not spicy.

Nyonya laksa (10), yuen yang nyonya baba laksa (10k), both are still as nice as before. :) Chendol so-so.. They move the cart from road side to the shop inside and it's more cramp.

I'm a Malaccan and I've never tried this cendol until last week! I always thought it was overrated and crowded by tourists. All I can say is that this ball of ice with coconut milk, topped with lovely, gooey gula melaka tastes like heaven. I had the nyonya cendol (RM4) and my brother had the durian cendol (RM5, I think),... More

Childhood food... Eat the chendol since young and the taste remains the same even after 10 over years... Worth Eating it!

The Baba Nonya laksa is mouth-watering local speciality and worth the long waiting queue! The portion is big and the ingredients are fresh. The rich gravy is a signature recipe . Not to be missed at all!

Bought several variants of Chendol to try but all were disappointing - durian taste was bland - frozen green Chendol strips - Gula Melaka syrup was too sweet and not enough coconut milk No service to speak about: queue, pay and takeaway; no seating place in the restaurant which was packed. Don't understand why the queue was so terrible long,... More

Although the queue is long, the turnover is fast. However, during weekends, it would be hard to find a decent seat. The assam laska is decent as well as the original chendol.
