The laksa here is a MUST to have whenever I am in Melaka, never get tired of it. esp the Nonya Laksa is one to die for. No regrets for spicy food lover.

We tried the chendol as well as sagu. Both met our expectations and we were very delighted. Of course it was really sweet but it was still really good. They serve lots of different food too but we did not try.

The laksa and chendol are the highlights of jonker 88, but the dining atmosphere is brisque and rushed due to there being too many customers to accomodate.

For RM 6 you can eat a big bowl of the most delicious Nyonya style meals. They are both tasty and filling. The restaurant is old with very high ceilings and swishing fans. There are many old pictures on the walls and interesting things to look at. It is very charming in a kind of old world way.

I came back here again for some amazing laksa and dessert. Had their curry laksa this time. It was creamy and spicy. It taste really good. Those travelling in groups, order the curry laksa and the asam laksa. You get to tease your tastebud with the delights. I also tried the rojak. For 2 people, they gave quite alot. Had... More

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.
