Chendol is my favourite local Malaysia dessert. I had expected the green Pandan chendol to be more creamy n softer but unfortunately the texture was a bit hard. The Gula Melaka was adequate n the red beans could be much better. Otherwise, still good.

Must try! Must try! Expect long Qs. Love the additional toppings of Gula Melaka (Sugar Syrup). One bowl is never enough!

A warm family run feelings the restaurant that's much bigger than it seems from the outside. The owner took the time to show us how to eat a particular dish and all of the food, including the wonderful chendol, was delicious. Highly recommended.

Has the traditional and durian flavours. I prefer the traditional. Rich, sweet and flavourful. The one with the durian topping is a tat over powering. I would prefer to have my durians as it is though. A bit pricey but acceptable.

The cendol is too sweet for us. The coconut syrup is no longer attractive. Found another shop serving better cendol near the entrance of Johnker Walk.

We visited here for breakfast both mornings we were here. Good choice for westerners and bonus is the great value prices (far cheaper than the places on the Main Street). Family run atmosphere with good served quickly

The issue of which is the best Cendol in Melaka, will always be an unsettled one. Some like their gula melaka thick and gooey but others theirs smooth and sweet. Some like their shaved ice smooth and others like it rough. Some prefer kidney beans while others prefer mushy red beans. I like the way Min Chong does it. Min... More
