I ate here several times during my stay in Melaka. The depth of spice and flavour in the dishes is amazing. For entrees I recommend the top hats, and for mains I recommend the delicious prawn and bean dish and the candle nut chicken. Everything I ate here was exceptional. This place really captures the essence of nyonya cooking.

We went there today under recommendation from our driver, it was busy, the place looked dirty and we were ushered upstairs to a back room which had a slight odour to it. The waiter kept getting our order wrong and we had to ask 3 times for a dish we ordered. The food was bland and uninteresting. I do not... More

We queued for a hour for Nancy's and finally got seated. Service was great, but the food was not as great as people raved about! Presentation was not given any effort and most importantly, quality was not there. Highly disappointed as we thought it would be good!

Nice little hole in the wall in a side street between Jonkerstreet and Heerenstreet. We've tried several small dishes so we could taste more of the local fare. The food was very good and tasty. We especially liked the Ayam Buah Keluak. Dish served with chicken or pork and the delicious black Keluak nuts. Small and crowded restaurant so be... More
