    Best Asam laksa

    Average laksa for me. I should look for a better laksa here...

    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.

  • Win Sing V.

    So so taste, special for travelers

  • Benedict T.

    The best Assam laksa in Penang.60 years in business.

  • alwyn g.

    Laurels squashed from being sat on. Needs tissue paper scandal to kick into highest gear.

    alwyn goh · February 20
  • alwyn g.

    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.

    alwyn goh · February 20
  • Pei J.

    Must try out their Asam laksa.

    Pei Jin · February 9

    Tasty asam laksa. In previous adventures I've found the laksa leaf to be too strong, but this was delicious.

    Eli Horne · January 27

  • Michelle L.

    ma' messy bowl of assam laksa but it's so good! Big chunks of fish meat too.

    Michelle Loh · January 13
  • mizz l.

    $5 per big bowl now lol. Still as good. Do order the fried spring rolls to go with it. That's because that's the correct way to enjoy this dish

  • SiauHwa T.

    Look around who is finishing, stand by to wait. Sit down, order, pay and enjoy. RM4 per serving. It's fast food but nice fast food.

    Edmund Tang · November 14, 2014
  • Rianto S.

    It's ok but maybe because I'm bit not a fan of asam laksa

    Rianto Soputro · November 3, 2014
