The place was busy when we walked in. There was nobody to show us a table or to tell us to order food at the counter. We figured it out after a while. The food is definitely over rated and over priced. We ordered a bowl of nyonya laksa and a cendol. The laksa was RM11.30 a bowl - very... More

Had an amazing bowl of spicy laksa at the world famous jonker 88. Can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who likes spicy food and wishes to try a nice traditional dish while in melaka.

This place was recommended. The food is good and it was greatly helped by the amount of publicity it got. Overall, it was a good experience.

The durian chendol is WAY below expectation. And much too pricey. Says rm5 on the menu, but ended up paying rm9 for it! But before that, you need to brave the long queue, the poor service, and the lack of tables. How can anyone enjoy food when you have hordes of people standing behind you waiting for you to vacate...

The food was quite alright, definitely not the best we had. The price was average. The service is very bad though. The cook is not local, and their attitude is pretty bad. So, if there's a >15mins queue there, you can skip this. Not worth your time.

There is usually a long queue during weekends and public holidays. The laksa and cendol here is nice. This is a small restaurant with limited seating.

After braving the 20min crazy queue (barely any standing space between the table and people hovering by tables hoping to bag a seat), I eagerly wolfed down my chendol. I was disappointed as the quality did not match the hoo har. Taste way better from a Penang street hawker!

Went there just for the chendol as all my friends told me it's a MUST TRY even if u have to die for it. And indeed it's the best ever I've eaten in my entire life. However, be prepared to wait in a epic long line.

Needless to say this place already made a name for itself. Food was decent and their cendol is day boom!!! You have to bear with the queue though and one downside is the limited seating area available as it is a small and quaint shop from the older era. But it was a good experience.
