Ate there for two nights in a row. First night, a Friday, we were the only people in the restaurant. The second time around there were a few other quests. The food is good and the service is excellent.

Frankly, it has been my favourite dining venue for years. My trip to Malacca is never complete witjout dining at Sri Nonya. I have tried many "famous & popular" nonya /peranakan restaurants in Malacca, I still steadfastly claim Sri Nonya is the overall winner.

We tried to go to Nancy couple of times, but could never catch the right time as they close at 2:30. We tried Seri Nyonya and loved the authentic setting and the fantastic quality of food. The staff are extremely friendly and they made us feel very welcome. We're now fans of peranakan cuisine! thanks.

A decent nonya peranakan restaurant at Equatorial Hotel in Melaka. Servings can be rather small if you are hungry. Food wise not too bad but I am sure you can get better elsewhere. The dessert selections kind of limited. Friendly and smiling staff. Peranakan decor.
