Well Worth the Wait

We have been to this restaurant twice within a year. In June 2014, no need to queue at about 1pm on a Thursday and we got a table for 5 rather quickly; the meal was served very quickly too. The eatery is situated in an old shophouse, sparsely but aptly decorated. It gives a feel of old-time... read more

Most of the food was brilliant but, to our taste buds, not the starter salad! Service was great and price reasonable!!

When I'm in Melaka, I always have lunch here. It's casual local restaurant which offers authentic Nyonya cuisine. Foods are not spicy but tastes mild. You can buy Nyonya sweets such like pineapple pies and dumplings with brown syrup and other Nyonya specialities on the ground floor. They are also good taste.

Have just come back from having dinner in this restaurant. We were expecting a long queue as it is Saturday night but we were able to go right in. The staff were friendly, smiling and welcoming. The menu was well presented in English with photos to help choose the unfamiliar food. The food was served promptly and was absolutely delicious.... More

Available more genuine nyonya food and taste delicious with its food marinated with sufficient herbs and spices. Place is conducive and located at prime area where most tourist visit that is near Jonker Walk. The owner said somewhere in Sept 2015, their restaurant will be shifted to Melaka Raya but new address not known yet.

We stood in line for about 20 minutes or so before we got a place to sit. We had to share a table with a couple as the restaurant was packed. It's a very small and narrow shop lot with not a lot of space, so there were about 7 tables that could probably accommodate about 30 people at one... More

We had lunch at this authentic little restaurant. It is very popular so be prepared to que at weekends. No advanced bookings are offered but the wait is worthwhile.

We used to like visiting Nancy Kitchen for a nice meal whenever we come to Malacca. The food was much much better before. Now, it seems like the standard dropped by a lot.. Seriously by a lot. We ordered the sambal potato leaves, braised pork, Otar-Otar and Nyoh Hiong. The sambal potato leaves are tasteless with no taste of sambal... More

The queue system needs to be updated to make it more tasteful. Although they don't accept reservations but at least tell the customers who are waiting at the opening their queue expectation and if it's in the 1st eating or wait for next table available when customers finish & leave. Yes, it gives a sense of popularity & publicity that... More

I was frustrated to find TA's top rated restaurants in Melaka at the moment were a mix of western food, cake shops and pubs with a few good Indian options. After a bit more research we found Nancy's with its varied menu of honest nyonya food that went beyond the familiar curries and noodles and ventured into some interesting options... More
