After all the drive to kuala sepetang and having lunch, there was a need for dessert. This place is the place to go to for cendol. To us, the cendol was just right. Not too sweet and not too rich. Place to sit and eat...More

By Penang standards this is mediocre but still a refreshing dessert. The coconut milk too diluted and flavors not strong, too watery. Pasembur is also ordinary, starchy soggy not crispy. Not worth going all the way to seek this place out

Forget about the other place Bismillah - Ansari is the real deal. This place has been making cendol for probably 30 plus years now and is the perfect post-lunch, or Four-Thirsty snack. Taiping is known for being very hot and very rainy. And on a...More

There's nothing like an ice cold bowl of cendol at any time of the day. This place serves a good bowl of cendol. Have it with pulut (glutinous rice) or kidney beans or just plain...either way, it's all good. The rojak / pasembor on the...More

I love cendol and this place, at least for me, serve the best cendol ever. A simple eatery that only offers cendol and pasembor. It is a must visit every time I go back to Taiping. Highly recommend to travelers whenever they are in Taiping.

Their cendol is just tastier compared to Bismillah Cendol. Even their rojak is much better. I would recommend to try both the cendol and find out for themselves which one they savour but my pick is Ansari antyime..

The taste was blend and diluted. Gula melaka was watery unlike those in Jonker Street, Melaka. The ingredient was inadequate

Perhaps those who have just visited Ansari can answer this or those who live in Taiping. I tried calling the mobile phone listed but it turns out to be someone else's number. Anyway, I wanted to know if Ansari is open during the Ramadhan month, particularly next week before the Raya holidays. I will be driving North to Penang and thought I would drop in for a snack along the way. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you.
