Famous but...

Long queues, poorly chopped chicken, small chicken rice balls, not cheap. The above summarizes my experience with this restaurant. Not worth the queue!

The chicken rice balls use to be the size of a tennis ball. It has shrunk to be like golf balls. Nevertheless the rice and chilli is still good but will pass on the chicken.

We came here during our trip to Melaka because we wanted to try the famous Chicken Riceball.

The Chicken and the Riceballs were very nice and... More

The whole shop was like a 70-s but you feel comfortable just by sitting in it. Their chicken rice balls are really special and you won't be able to see or taste the same aroma as theirs. Their chicken are nice as well, you just have to order another plate!

the rice ball moist and tasty. The chicken tender and strong smell from garlic. the sauce only spicy. Overallthe taste nice but not worth to queue very long. When you go inside, you don't need to order anything because they'll serve you by person.
