Want to eat real Peranakan food - go there

We stumbled on this rustic looking restaurant while wandering around Jonker street. We've been getting hungry but our standard choice - Nancy's Kitchen had long lines, so we tried another place. Well, we were not disappointed. While food prices were slightly higher compare to Nancy's Kitchen, I... read more

We had actually set out to eat at Nancy,s restaurant (but she has moved a little out of the main part of Jonkers Walk, so decided on our second choice of Kocik kitchen.....(..they are in the street running parallel to Jonkers) and we were not disappointed. The staff were very helpful and pleasant as was a tour guide who had... More

Had lunch there as we wanted to have Nyonya food. The restaurant is very lovely with traditional furnitures and table clothes. One of the very few open for lunch and dinner during CNY. Food was ok but nothing special in comparison to other places we have been to in Penang or Melaka. We had ginger chicken (ginger went missing?), eggplant... More

Went there for dinner and the place was pretty crowded. Took the owner's recommendation of Chicken Buah Keluak, which she showed us how to eat. Interesting taste and something that we had never tried before. Cendol was excellent, as were the steamed lady fingers with belacan. Staff were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Had lunch here as part of an all day tour and was pretty disappointed considering this restaurant has a Trip Advisor certificate pinned on the wall. Whilst the lady owner/manager was lovely, we did not appreciate being served deep fried chicken that was still raw and bleeding from the bone which we saw after just one bite. We were asked... More

I was here for lunch, apparently they just open, still with cleaning up some table, but already more than half tables filled with people. It's quite lucky for me to stumble upon this restaurant, since I didn't plan to. They serve a really good peranakan cuisine, nyonya cook. Love the taste, it's just suits my tongue. They have 3 part... More

We were initially going to eat at the Baba Nonya restaurant right across the street from Kocik Kitchen, but once we got there, the staff simply ignored us when we rang the bell! That was a blessing in desguise, because we ended up eating at Kocik Kitchen instead. The place was packed, which is usually a good sign when it... More

First time dinning at this place. Service is good but tried the food. Didn't meet out expectation below par for Peranakan food. Feeling disappointed, presentation is fair. Won't be back for more.

It's my first time in this Nonya restaurant and I enjoyed the ambience and the great food, not forgetting the great service as well. Nice ambience with friendly and helpful host Jennifer and all the other workers. Food was authentic and the portions were generous too. Love the duck with salted vegetable soup, ayam buah keluak, ngoh hiang, otah &... More
