First bite, taste weird as we were expecting asam laksa to be penang style taste. Soup looks diluted and half bowl found bits of fish in the laksa. Paid RM 11.50 for it, the price is expensive considering its in Malacca. As average bowl of noodle would be RM4-5 as the local stalls. Cendol nothing extraordinary, lack of gula melaka.

While backpacking around Asia for over a year, we discovered this place and (also) because of it we (over)stayed in Melaka for almost a month!!! We ate there every day at lunch time, the food is unique, to die for, the staff was very friendly and surprised we were there for so long. The laksa with chicken is just delicious... More

Disappointed with the food. perhaps it's their own version of Penang laksa but I like mine the true penang style. not worth the queue.

What's a visit to Melaka town without popping in to this restaurant for the curry noodles,, assam laksa and chendol, right? So, it was that we came here. The cool interior was a respite from the afternoon heat. After a 15-min wait, we finally got a table. The curry was decent but nothing to shout about. The assam laksa was... More

overrated place. It's quite pricey as compared to other places. The nyonya laksa is too spicy for my liking. No more next time.

I understand the queue has always been long for this place, but service attitude is kinda bad, chef feeding us canned tuna fish. I guess I found that the place is not worth the queue with that attitude (showing black face) with that food.

Had came here so many times, but the food quality was downgoing trend together with hike of prices. The cendol was sold with double price RM7.40 and was told the price for the single portion was not sold anymore, and been charged without prior notice. It seemed you are obliged to pay for it. If you have come before and... More

Just because it has long queues doesn't mean the food it's good. We are just too lazy to look for another above average assam laksa in melaka so we often end up in the restaurant. The queue is not worth it cos the crowd on weekends is crazy. The standards has dropped. So has the chendol. The queueing system needs... More
