Popiah

The ingredients in the popiah are a little different from the ordinary popiah. With the chilli, it tastes delicious.

The food is good, been there many time. Recommend dish that i tried Top Hat, Lo Bak, chincalok ulam among others. The Kuih Muih is also Ok Ok. I would think it is authentic nyonya food, as a lot of the dishes is the cook the same with my mother (my mother is Peranakan.) The problem is that it is... More

Was excited to visit this place but was closed on Tuesday. Came back next day but had to wait in the hot sun for them to open. Service was ok but food was so so. Nothing really to shout about. Place is small and noisy.

Dec 2014 -- one can grow a beard waiting for lunch here! But we heard this was the to-go-place for Nyonya food. I must say there were some hits and some misses in terms of the quality and taste. Mee-siam - average, Kari Ikan - average, Nyonya duck - leathery, Rending Chicken - good, Chinchalok - good. Final tab MYRinggit... More

We waited exceptionally long, others that came and ordered after us got food faster. And the food was not really that special.

Nancy's came highly recommended but I must admit I was a bit worried when it looked a bit outdated - not to fear it was fantastic. Opposite us was a large table of students all chatting so that was a good sign. We ordered a few dishes and enjoyed all of them. Can definitely recommend a visit but don't count... More

Very delicious, traditional one, will try again next time. Long queue and they close around 9:00 pm, so need to go early to get seats.

We stayed at a hotel near Nancy's Kitchen and continually saw the very long line-ups at Nancy's so decided to join the queue. Although the restaurant was supposed to re-open at 4 p.m., it opened about 4:25. We were sat at a table with two other couples, who proved to be excellent company. The food that we ordered spring rolls... More

We enjoy Peranankan food and frequently eat nyonya dishes back home in Singapore. This brings about comparison and we weren't very impressed with Nancy's Kitchen despite it's good reputation. Food is mediocre at best. And with the long wait for a table and the longer wait for food to be served, the dining experience was just so-so. During our visit,... More
