They got no arrangement for waiting customer, the late one come without line up. They just don't know how to do they service. And the food taste nothing special... All I can taste of the black pepper deer meat is just the pepper smell and taste. Some food are too salty, consider not healthy. Price are not fair too if... More

I feel this place has lost its plot. They were one of the early Nyonya places in Melaka Raya however focusing on tour buses. Hence their menu is limited and the overall taste & quality is average at best. Service is another issue as the owner can be rather snappish & sarcastic. The waiters aren't any better. All the care... More

Initial plan was to head to Makko for lunch but somehow ended up at Ole Sayand instead. Most of the diners were tourists. Felt that the nonya food here was average and a little pricey, perhaps that is why locals don't dine in here? Saw a group of tourists buying packets of crackers, those that they served as snacks at... More

We were supposed to walk to Nancy Kitchen from our hotel (Hatten) but it was too hot to walk, so we ended up to this restaurant! Food was horrible beyond words... PLEASE...DONT GO!

Not an authentic Nyonya restaurant with limited food variety. We tried assam fish, sambal petai ikan bilis, ayam pongteh, and kangkung. Food gravies were VERY VERY salty. Sharifah (one of the waiters there) was very rude and mean to customers. Despite the fact that we were the first to arrive and approximately 15mins before the arrival of a tour group,... More

I visited this restaurant almost every trip to malacca somehow I feel the quality of food dropping each visit.. The tom yam fish we ordered was bland, it's not spicy and sour enough with no fragrant of Asam. Further, cincalok fried egg was ok but has nothing to shout about. I don't think I will revisit again.

We read very good reviews about this place from food bloggers. We thought, why dont we try since we were in Melaka for couple of days. The restaurant seemed pretty authentic in terms of decor and served a menu with famous nyonya dishes. We tried the sambal udang petai, assam fish, duck soup and ladies fingers sambal. Apart from the... More

I wasn't very impressed with the food but relatively speaking, the crowd here seems to be larger than the rest. There is only one dessert served which is chendol. It is not too sweet but plain and nice.
