Go to Nancy's just for the experience. There's usually a line waiting for table any time around 12h00 or after 18h00 in the evenings. The place looks like a hole-in-the-wall, but when we asked a local where he would go for the best Nyonya food in Melaka, he immediately pointed us to Nancy's and he was right. They make popia...

we've been there for our last dinner in town with the familly. The food was yummi, we taste new dishes, the quantity and the quality were perfect. Highly recommended. Very affordable prices. We oly have been "disturb" by the too cold aircon.

We had dinner at Nancy's on our first evening in Melaka, encouraged by TA reviews praising the good local fare and reasonable prices. Unfortunately, we can not give a great review. On a positive note, the popiah that we started off with was delicious! However, we were somewhat disappointed by the main courses: we had a fish dish (garlic and... More

It's spicy it's tasty and cheap. It's reL no ya food. Be careful as it has limited opening hours and if you arrive after 6pm you will miss out.

We visited here after doing the night market. We were a little lucky to get a seat as it was busy. It has a great atmosphere and is really friendly. We tried way too much - so that we could try a little of everything and the food was great. Really recommend this to try local food and a greta... More

Randomly chose the restaurant and it was delicious. Staff friendly. Went back for a second meal and it was consistently good.

Nancy's kitchen seemed to be a popular place in Malacca and after I ate there I could see why. If you want to try authentic nonya food then this is the place to come to. The decor is nothing to write home about, in fact it is quite basic. However the food makes up for that in spades. Plus they... More
