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

Lunched here - itik tim (excellent), ngio hiang (good), fried fish with sambal garam (very good) and prawns in pineapple curry (curry is good, wish the prawns were a little bit more fresh). Came in just before the lunch time crowd arrived. Will come here again on my next trip to try ayam ponteh and pai tee.

We ordered one of the lunch sets because there were many of us. There was a tussle for the last lemak prawn in pineapple curry (excellent), and then the ayam pongteh (good) The fried squid was all but ignored because it was meh. The fried fish was bland, though the accompanying sambal was good. The chap chye mixed vegetables was... More

Well cooked and presented Nyonya cooking. Lunch of 2 dishes, a beer and some water was RM30 (GBP5). Well patronised by locals which is usually a good sign.

This place is halal so no pork. This can sometimes be a problem for authentic nonya food, especially ngio hiang. The food was basic average at best. Service was also quite impersonal and dry. Forgettable.

We had chap chye, ngoh hiang, otak, buah kaluak chicken, lime juice and chendol. The chap chye was a big disappointment, it was a gluey mass. The ngoh hiang had more flour than ingredients. The otak was more like fish cake. The buah kaluak was the saviour of the bush kaluak chicken (which appeared to be boiled before cooking). Overall... More

We had a very pleasant family dinner in this restaurant! The numerous local specialities made us discover plenty of new tastes and flavours. We were extremely satisfied to be able to eat in a local restaurent for they aren't a lot in Malacca. The environment is simple but cozy and traditional. In addition to this, the service is very helpful... More

If you want authentic Nyonya food whilst in Melaka then Kocik Kitchen is well worth a visit. From the street it looks to be small but there is a much bigger dining area to the rear. Good authentic interior and very good authentic(I think) food. Friendly helpful service and some delicious food. All very enjoyable and very tasty.
