    RM5 a bowl but not fulfilling at all. Nonai. Even KL has better asam laksa than this place, meh.

    RM5 for a standard bowl but not very filling. Gravy is flavourful

    Really upset me. The fish meat already shredded in tiny pieces. The broth tasted so so only, not really worth trying again.

    Best assam laksa ever!!! Never miss it when I'm around penang❤️
  • 🌛 FOXXHUI 🌞
    I swear this is an honest review. This is the shittiest laksa I ever had in Penang! Tasteless as in not spicy and not sour at all! Avoid this place if you want to get a bowl of good laksa

    Best of the best ... Whenever I'm in Penang, I have to eat Air Itam Asap Laksa
  • Chrissy L.
    Love the rich flavors here...
  • Izwan M.
    Not my taste. Asam and sweet doesn't blend for me at all.
  • Khoo J.
    Can't get this consistency of Asam Laksa KL. Usually those in KL are too watery. Pasar Air Itam Asam Laksa had a thick flavorful broth with the right amount of spiciness that keeps you wanting more

    One of the best Asam Laksa you'll taste in Penang. Authentic and flavorful, RM5 for one bowl. Standards have dropped a bit but still worth a try!

    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.

    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.
