In matriarchal peranakan families, the female folks rule the kitchen. So Kocik as peranakan children would call the youngest aunty is an apt name for this nonya restaurant. Yet, a peranakan restaurant which doesn't serve pork cannot be too authentic. No babi ponteh? And the ngoh hiang with dry chicken meat instead of lardy minced pork? My kocik would certainly... More

We were really pleased and satisfied. A group of 8 of us ate. We spent RM180. We tried quite a number of dishes. We... More

I asked a couple of locals where best to eat Nyonya food. This place got the most vote. They said that it surpassed the other popular place a few meters away. The owner was very friendly and she herself suggested what best to order since it was our first time in Melaka. Friendly owner = friendly staff. This. Place. Is.... More

First visit to this place for lunch. Food served could be hotter - both in temperature and chilli-hot. The house favorites are ok, do wish that the portions were a bit larger though.

I love the Chicken Pongteh here! Its really nice and the owner also very nice and give us very good suggestion on food. The price is not too pricey and you may also can take a look on this more than 100 years old building while you are waiting for your food. Would definitely visit again!

Kocik Kitchen is worth a visit, if you're looking for authentic Nyonya cuisine. Dinner service is from 6pm to 10pm, but best to be seated before 9pm as the kitchen may close earlier due to too many patrons. If you're unsure of what to order, try the Dinner Sets, which range from RM100-120, depending on number of pax. Expect 4-5... More

Authentic, down-to-earth, home cooked fares. Absolute must trys: 1. Chicken ponteh 2. Chuan Chuan Tofu 3. Belacan lady's finger 4. Omelette 5. Nonya kuehs (at least a piece!) Warm and cosy ambience plus wallet friendly prices!

The Chendol was really good as the ice was finely shaved. However, the food was just okay as it wasn't that flavorful
