We arrived on 15 Oct 2014 for lunch & it wasn't opened. We only found out later after we had our lunch elsewhere that it is closed every Wednesday. Kocik (means Youngest Aunt, or the father's youngest sister in peranakan terms) has a set lunch menu which unfortunately, we did not try. We went there for the chendol which was... More

In Melaka, there are too many peranakan food restaurant, some are over rated, some are under standard. After much consideration, we decided to pay Kocik Kitchen a visit to try our luck after a climb to St Paul's Hill. Set in a old peranakan shop house, with decoration of old photos from the past and decoration, the mood is definitely... More

Had lunch there on a Friday afternoon. Chap chye was not simmered long enough, so the taste was bland. The nonya kuehs they display outside tasted somewhat decent and looked attractive. My favorite was the chendol, super fragrant and thick gula melaka on the ice - I went back the next day for the chendol again!

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

I walked by this restaurant many times. I had no idea if the food was good but i managed to convince my friends to try. The service was fast, seating was ample and food was homely. 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!
