Bought few varieties of kuih. Spent RM70+. Unbelievable. Tried all. None suit my family taste-bud. In fact, kuih from my hometown tasted much nicer. We were surprise with the taste of that triangle ketupat. It's sweet and mixed with desiccated coconut. Thought the original taste...More

An awesome selection of nonya cakes. Pay a visit and u will never regret. Though the entry to the location are narrow and single directional. We met volunteers who helps to guide the traffic. Do drive with care, when you visit.

Freshly made Onde Onde (small green rice cakes covered with grated coconut filled with Gula Melaka in it), it was still hot and tasty! Other than that, nothing tasty (for my taste)... One good thing is that, this place has variety.

Cendol was good as expected. Most Nyonya kueh were of good quality and tasty. Didn’t get to eat their “chang”(rice dumplings), as they’re sold out. The biggest let down for me was their “kueh talam” which was far removed from the traditional white santan(coconut based...More

The kueh here are very traditional. However, choices maybe limited depending on the time you come and be prepared for the queue. Ondeh ondeh is very nice and made freshly but also is the long queue. Price is reasonable
