Food is tasty and delicious. Not expensive and it's definitely worth a try... Lots of people throughout the day.

First and foremost, you should expect this place to be very crowded. You can get your cendol quite fast, but to secure a seat is difficult. Tried their cendol durian and assam laksa. It's not bad, worth a try.. only if you can be patient in waiting for the seats! =p

One of the most go to places whenever I visit Melaka. The place is forever busy and the standard of the food there has dropped. Would suggest to try out the assam laksa to share (leaving room for more food later) instead of having it as a full meal. Note that it can get very hot in the afternoon and... More

Super crowded, and everything is self-service, including finding a table. Note that the chendol and laksa/fish cake queues are separate. Felt pressured to eat quickly and leave because of the people waiting right behind our seats. The place was warm and just way too crowded. Food was average, I think you can find similar ones in other nearby places. My... More

Laksa and cendol delicious, they have special cendol with durian. The price consider slightly expensive to me. It's always full and some customers even stand beside the road to have their cendol.

The laksa wasn't that impressive. Laksa at Calanthe Art Cafe is way better. Laksa was too spicy and not creamy enough but the cendol is another thing. The gula Melaka is super good. Must try the cendol. The laksa you can skip.

Tried the cendol and wow, it was real awesome especially on a sunny hot afternoon. The cendol was very different as it was topped with Gula Melaka and very rich coconut. I would love to tried the laksa next time when I visit.

The cendol was good enough, but service was a bit bizarre: self-service doesn't hold its usual meaning here. In any case, a good stop for a fresh plate of cendol along Jonker.

The food paying system is inconvenient for customer to pay and quickly collect their food. What makes it worst is that, one person would need to sit at the table to reserve those seats and another one queueing to pay food. If you are heading there with only 2 of you, be prepared to rush in and out as they... More
