Exactly a place to stop by for foodie. Amazing laksa. The taste is marvellous. The price is reasonable. The queue will be very long and you have to accept that. U cant chat and take your own sweet time to finish up your foods as...people are waiting to take your seat. Compulsory place to visit if you come to visit Malacca.More

My wife and I had planned to spend an hour or so exploring Jonker Street. We ended up spending more than two hrs here, and returned again few days later to check out other cafes. There are plenty cafes, eating places and shops to browse...and buy locally produced stuff like palm sugar, biscuits and other dried goods. Cafes I recommend are Stolen Cup and Daily Fix...good cafe, friendly service. Eat 18 looks nice from.The outside, but lacks warmth when it comes to service inside. Definitely avoid Hoe Kee Chicken Rice Stall near the entrance. Ranked high by many others, but, personally, it is the worst chicken rice I have ever had in all of Malaysia. Service here is also curt and transactional. Many chendol (local ice dessert drink) is a must try, to cool off after walking about on your feet in humid weather. If you are driving, good luck finding a parking space! May have to park some distance away and walk to the main streets. Enjoy!More

The laksa was quite good but the Cendol was highly passable.Being close to the tourist area's was a disadvantage.

The food here is tasty! We ate here for 2 consecutive days, savouring their laksa (we chose the “kahwin” broth - curry + Asam) and also cendol. The 1st day we had to queue whilst the 2nd day, because we were there early; around 11am,...we didn’t have to queue). Worth a visit if you can accept spicy (skip if you can’t take Cili - the broth is pretty spicy). Or alternatively, try the fish Ball noodle. The fish ball is juicy and tasty. don’t forget to order their fuchuk too! We opted to sit inside (longer queue) but there’s no queue if you don’t mind dining outside the cafeMore

The coconut taste like from can and gula melaka taste like normal sugar. Does nothing for me. East west cendol is better. The fish ball soup was nothing to shput about. No beansprout or even spring onion on the soup. We ask for cut chile...in soya sauce... none. Then we ask any sambal chile - the worker shouted no chilie at all... bad sevice and rude workers. Don't go..More

Been here for many times. A must when visiting Melaka. Cendol & Jumbo Nyonya Laksa. Do expect long Q for nice foods.

This place is quite unique. You find a table to sit and then you go to the back of the shop to order your meal. It's self-service so don't expect someone to come up to take your order. My husband and I ordered the Nyonya...curry laksa and Assam laksa. It was so delicious. All those braggings on the internet are not overrated. We visited Jonker 88 twice during our stay in Malacca. If you go during lunch there will be a long queue. Go during 11 am and you don't need to wait for a table. They don't open at night during weekdays. Only on weekends do they open for dinner. The only thing we were not too happy was the owner at the front of the shop not wearing a mask when it is required for all restaurant people to put one on. We were there 2 days in a row and he was not wearing a mask too on the second day we were there.More

If you want to avoid the queue, come in the morning. No queue at all. Just walk in. Cendol is cheap and big and super yummy

I visit during the pandemic. The queue is long as usual but this is the first time inside the restaurant is very calm and not crowded (due to their social distancing protocol). My third time here, the food still tastes amazing as before. The serving...is quite large (for me), so you might wanna try sharing if you're planning to food-hunting elsewhere after!More
