Warm historical feel to the place, even if most if most of the decor is fake, it doesn't feel that way Hidden in the historical melaka streets it was a great little... read more

Found out about this place via Groupon. We had Cheese Chachos (RM5.50), spaghetti bolognese, pork chop, Sarsi and Ice Cream Soda. The cheese chachos was basically chachos with some melted cheese splashed over it and bits and pieces of salsa. Not worth ordering. The spaghetti bolognese was really tasty, though. One of the best I've tasted in Melaka. The pork... More

I really like their food very much, simple menu but will make you feel that you will bring more friend there. Balacan fried rice, tom yam soup are good. But the mango salad is too sour, hopefully they can improve it.

A great place to go in Melaka for some home cook Thai food. I personally love the Spicy fried bee hon, it's was done perfectly. Great ambience with great host and great food, you do not want to miss this place out when you are in Melaka.

We found out the hard way that AK 47 doesn't open until after about 7 p.m. in the evening, however we did find it open at lunchtime the next day and had a very nice Thai meal there. A very friendly owner who was also busy with making some little brooches. Very skilful. Every so often he dashed off on... More
