Shut your eyes and eat the food

If you are squeamish you might find the interior and kitchens a little too rustic. Don't be put off, the food here is really good and the open kitchen and decaying walls all add to the charm. Chicken Rendang was great as were the Nyonya noodles. A must visit place.

If you want authentic Peranakan food, this is the place to go! The flavours are great, and the price is very reasonable considering that everything in Melaka seems so tourist-y! The otak-otak was served in a generous portion as compared to the other Peranakan restaurants that are charging the same price. Other dishes like the fish curry had generous amounts... More

After reading all of the reviews on trip adviser I was really looking forward to lunch at Nancy's kitchen during our recent trip to Malaysia. The food was OK, nothing spectacular and it certainly wasn't worth waiting for an hour in the heat for a table.

You will never regret & definitely will make a second, third visit.... I like the rendang chicken & ponteh (pork), and I believe u will definitely like them too. My sister & me felt disappointed when we visited on the 1st day stay in Melaka, where the pai-tea finished at the time we visited and we were told to revisit... More

This is peranankan cuisine at its best. The superb taste bespoke meticulous preparation and the food looks good too. Prices were reasonable. Don't miss the ayam pongteh, springroll, otah and cendol!

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 Chinatown. You also... 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.
