    Old uncle isn't here anymore. I remember this was where I had my first ever asam laksa. Just isn't the same anymore tho it's recommended if youve never tried it before and heading to Ke Lok Si

    I love street food but felt a bit disappointed by this laska. The broth has a strong fishy aroma along with prawn paste became overwhelming. Preferred the laksa near Penang Famous Chendol.

    I'm a very picky laksa person. But.. The laksa here and the one opposite(哑巴bisu) is seriously the best of the best! Both taste great. Do give both a try instead of just one. #TwoIsBetterThanOne

    Some say it's the best. I have to agree and disagree. It's among my favourites but it's not at the top spot. Anthony Bourdain loves this on his show, No Reservations.

    Do not patronize the sugar cane stall.They are not honest as they charged me price for no ice drink when I requested for less ice. He should have pre warn me.

    The assam laksa is indeed quite good compared to KL.But not much fish ingredient. This place is smelly & dirty since it's located outside the wet market & the stall is not very clean.

    Due to a family fued , the main chef has flown the nest and joined his daughters shop in Klang . If he held back some secrets it shows. The soup is not as good. Too sweet. No kick.

    Very good, but that's a drop from legendary. Peripherals are good with broth being veritable spice garden, with bunga kantan prominent. Tad short of uncontested fishy richness.

    이곳은 페낭 로컬사람들이 제일 사랑하는 락사인듯. 일반적인 코코넛 들어간 깔끔한 락사가 아니라 멸치와 시골된장이 강하게 들어간 락사임.. 냄새도 그렇고 지저분ㅠㅠ 비위가 약하다면 안가는게
