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.

Yes you should try this kind of popular culinary in Melaka. Better you come in the morning and have a breakfast here. Usually people should queuing on lunch time to experience this chicken rice ball.

Tender soft chicken, excellent rice balls. Normal oily rice is just plain. Service was good. Enjoy queuing under the hot sun!

The chicken rice balls were moist and fragrant but as I went during the lunch hour on a Friday afternoon, we were only limited to purchasing a maximum of 10 rice balls for a family of four. If you were there primarily for the rice balls, you would be somewhat disappointed with this imposed limit by the owners. You could... More

This chicken rice ball was our priority when we arrive at Melaka, but after ate, we think the food in here is average. The chicken was nice but there is still blood inside the chicken. The asam pedas fish also average taste and didn't cook well too, there still a part that the fish still rare. The price was fair.

Famous for its rice ball chicken rice. The queue during the mid day sun could be a killer. It will take you around 20+mins to get a table during peak periods. You will find that there are many similar restaurants along Jonker walk but they are all packed during the weekends. So plan to go early. The Chicken was soft... More
