Best laksa ever!!!

Spent a month in Malaysia and this was the best laksa I had. So fresh and full of flavour. My order was taken quickly and food served soon after piping hot after just being cooked. So cheap too @ 4.5ringgit! Beautiful location on the river too. I'd say this place serves some of the best food in... read more

we are staying at Wayferer and this place, also on the river, is practically next door. The menu looked good so we sat looking at the water and enjoyed our dinner: Nyonya laksa and Nyonya chicken curry washed down with a few tiger beers. Friendly service, highly recommended.

We went here on a rainy night so couldn't sit out on the canal, but that would have been wonderful. There was not much atmosphere inside and we were the only people there. However, we enjoyed our night anyway because the food was so delicious. We ordered the ayam ponteh. I can't compare this to other versions of this dish... More

Made the decision to visit this place based on the good reviews. As our coach reached malacca pretty late, we came here for lunch around 2.30pm on a Sat. We had the whole place to ourselves even though some of the popular food outlets like the chicken rice had long snaking queue. We wanted to dine by the river but... More

Food there is pretty decent beers are slightly more expensive then neighbouring cafes. Overall we enjoyed sitting by the river with a few cold ones waving to passersby.

Walking so much with my elderly parents and we're told that their lunch is not ready yet, and from what I observed, their food menu is on display at the entrance. I wonder when will they start their lunch time.

Just had dinner here at this little gem. I've eaten here a few times before and it never disappoints. On the banks of the Melaka River, it's a very unassuming and unpretentious little eatery. The decor is super basic (red plastic tables and chairs) but you don't need anything when the backdrop is an UNESCO site. It is a little... More

We went here for riverside dinner. We ordered their tempra chicken (sweet &sour), eggs, and mixed vege. The taste is perfect, not too strong, very comfortable and homey tasted food. Not expensive compared to other Nyonya restaurants.

After walking around Malacca, in the heat, there comes a time when you need to kick back and have a bite and a cool drink. The Riverine Coffeehouse is an amazing place to do that. The views are spectacular, and we were treated to all the Malaysian flags still fluttering across the river from Malaysia Day. The food was wonderful,... More

Not only is the scenery spectacular - Church of St Francis Xavier and the heritage buildings on the opposite bank - but the food and the staff here are wonderful. It is a joy to spend time in this cafe. And in this lovely atmosphere.
