My parents said it's too sweet but overall very decent cendol. The runners are efficient not snobbish. Comfortable chairs and table to sit in.

We have been here a number of times. Whenever we are in Taiping, Perak, we would stop by Ansari. As advertised on their signboard, it is now operated by the 3rd generation of their family - since 1940. Their cendol is good, as the shaved...More

To be honest, cendol in Melaka tastes better. The cendol tastes too watery to my likeness. The pasembur (or we call 'mi rojak' in Selangor) has a plain, mediocre taste.

I had never heard of cendol before and I have to admit it is quite weird looking but it was very nice. I had the basic cendol with no beans and ate the whole thing! I was so impressed by the speed and efficiency involved...More

We got our crave on the last day in Taiping. Still the best cendol in Taiping, and probably in Malaysia. Creamy sweet treat, you can’t resist. Thumbs up 👍

Had the kacang + pulut cendol. It's not too sweet, just nice for me. They have pasembur too. If the prawn fritters are hot and crispy it would be fantastic. The sauce is nice but need to improve on the prawn fritters.

Absolutely yummy cendol (add in red beans and pulut panggang for extra yum!) especially on a hot humid afternoon.

Known among the locals especially. Can be croded from time to time so be patient to wait for your seat! The coconut milk is not too milky just nice & not too sweet . Try their rojak too . It is superb✌️

There's no other cendol like Ansari's Cendol. Had taste lots of cendol all over Malaysia, but personally for me, this cendol is the best! A dessert mix with coconut milk, green flour texture & brown sugar with grated ice, no one will refuse it.
