Authentic Nyonya food

Small, popular, busy selling nice local food just off Jonker Street. Be prepared to cough when you go to pay your bill as its next to the Kitchen and it just oozes Chilli!

We got in line 20 minutes before opening. The place opened for dinner 30 minutes post intended time. The line behind us was ridiculous. They have all the dishes in small portions, which allows you to try a lot of different things. Managed to try about 10 dishes because of this little trick - nice and smart of them! Fantastic...

Good food and reasonable prices. It's a small place and you may have to wait for a table. We ate a late lunch, just before their closing for lunch. Pleasant staff and very good food.

This restaurant offers the best nyonya food ever! You got to try the Babi Pongteh and Babi Buah Keluak. The taste is awesome that I can't even describe it here!

I guess you have to just go with the flow here in Malaysia and accept that things are well a little chaotic. But having said that its bloody annoying when you turn up at the restaurant of your choice bouyed by the great reviews on trip adviser and lonely planet only to find that they are closed. No explanation ......just... More

Nancy's Kitchen is a 1-minute walk from the famous Jonker Street of Melaka. You'll easily find it as there's usually a thick queue of customers during lunch and dinner time. As I was traveling with a large group (we're 19 people), I messaged the owner to get a reservation. She happily agreed to reserve us a table. However, when we... More

Nancy's kitchen is very easy to find...it's about 5mins walk from the baba nyonya musuem and jonker street It's a non pretentious working restaurant in an old part of melaka. Food is good quality and price is reasonable. Try to find it if you can for lunch or dinner.

We love the nonya kueh in bitesized portions. I hardly eat them elsewhere as I am afraid that the coconut may give me stomach bloating problems. Surprisingly, the coconut items turned out not "gilat" and really tasty.
