Food was not tasty at all!

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... read 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

Arrived at the restaurant at 2.15pm. The whole restaurant was packed crowded. Managed to find a table for two of us. Recommended that reservation must be made if you decided to come dine in with family to avoid the long wait. Ordered the day specialty dry chicken curry, chap cai, otak-otak, white rice and 2 cendol. The wait for the... More

My group of 14 were disappointed. Everyone felt that all the food are salty, the soup is diluted and the assam fish has no umph.

I like the food, but i wasn't an expert on baba nyonya's food. This is my first time. But as an newcomer, i think its worth to taste. The only thing that i don't like it here, is the space is quite cramp out. We went there for lunch in a group of 50 pax (we pre-book).

Nyonya food is very tradition and gamous in Malacca. Only Penang & Malacca are famous for this type of dishes, I gfaced a problem when I arrived in Malacca by flight. Imagine this airport is "Malacca international Airport" without taxi kiosk. Luckily, I approached the airport information centre,the personnel do have few taxi-man's phone numbers. Need to call and wait.

They found us a table and the service was really prompt and friendly. All the food was amazing. Price was ridiculously low compared to Australian restaurants. There was a... More

Great recommendations include samba kang kong and samba udang. The ayam ponteh or rather all the ponteh are good to miss. Salty!

This is one of the better restaurant for peranakan food. Heat in the spicy dishes was just right. Loved their assam fish and sambal prawns
