Chicken was nicely done, but the rice was not tasty and lack of flavour. Not likely to try again as it seems over-rated.

Me & hubby ordered 2 set of chicken rice. The chicken rice taste was good. I personally didn't like the rice balls, because it purely taste nothing. The chicken was tasty. It doesn't ignite my taste buds. But can try. Worth the price.

Have been visiting this shop since several years. Seriously authentic rice ball and always house full. But they have a really fast service. Despite waiting to get in the shop, once u have got a table, the food are served fast. They also serve fish assam curry which is delicious tooo

We queued for about 30mins before getting seated. Service was generally fast and friendly. I felt the rice was not fragrant enough but the chicken was great. Price was really good in my opinion.

We went there based on online tips that Chicken Rice Balls is one of the Must Eat in Melaka. To be honest, the food is tasty, but there is nothing special with this dish. It is basically the same dish as any Chicken Rice except that the rice were shaped into little balls. The restaurant is very hectic due to... More

In some ways I prefer this to Chung Wah because it's less crowded, we eat in comfort, and the emphasis is on good chicken and fluffy rice without being made into balls. I prefer my rice fluffed rather than balled, I guess. Prices are friendlier compared to Chung Wah too.
