Reasonable pricing but some room for improvement !!!!

If you are looking for reasonably priced and delicious classic Peranakan food at Malacca, do check out Ole Sayang! On a recent trip, we tried the Ikan Bilis Petai, sambal lady fingers and duck soup and were impressed! The restaurant also serve good prawn crackers as starters, crispy and not oily at all. If you are looking for ayam buah... More

My client invited me for lunch today (26th March 2015) in Oleh Sayang. I am accustomed to Peranakan food as I was raised by a Nyonya. The food has no quality and should not be termed as "nyonya food". The chendol is tasteless and their gula melaka is so pale in colour. The chicken rendang's aroma is too strong for... More

We had a few dishes. Chicken Ponteh which was good and big portion. Sambal sotong (squid) was ok, but the best i think is the cendol. Definitely one of the better cendol around. Also, the restaurant is big and there's many staff to ready to serve compared to other restaurant which was always crowded.

Ayam Pongteh is good but the Asam fish soup is like drinking Soya sauce meaning salty like hell. Fried egg with meat also salty. Complaint on the foods but no entertained by them. Service is poor. Strongly NOT recommended!

The plus point about this restaurant is that it is conveniently located near two hotels namely Eco Tree Hotel & Pergola Hotel. The ambiance was nice, not very crowded and not noisy. The food there wasn't that great or anything to shout about. It is a good place to go if you are looking for convenience. Other than that, not... More

I am on a mission to find the best chendol. My first try is Ole Sayang. It's about 2:20 pm now. The place is bustling. Obviously popular place. Staff were very busy. So I just found myself a table. I only made one order of Ice Chendol. I appreciate the fact that they give you the option to include or... More

We were at dinner - the Prawn Pineapple Asam was atrocious compared to Cottage Spices , a few doors down. The Itek Tim - was so tough, it's not funny. The soup was real bad too. The 3rd dish was forgettable too.

We had a lot of dishes here. Had the asam pedas fish (which is expensive and the signature dish) - This was too sour. Our veges were too salty. Desert was too sweet. We came in with high expectations (as people had recommended it) but ended up not finishing our food at all. It is also expensive. For the price,... More

Went on recommendation by a friend altho hesitated after seeing average rating here. Anyhow, still decided to give it a try ... What we were impressed was the efficient n friendly service to details such as providing the right serving spoons/forks for every dish which nearly all eateries lack. Food was served relatively fast. However, whn all food arrived, we... More
