“Excellent food, old world charm...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is indeed one of the best peranakan restaurant ever! They serve a couple of authentic dishes, made so well that I'll do whatever I need for the recipe! The pineapple fish was fragrant, gorgeous and super yummy. Even a simple dish such as cucumber with sambal had a wonderful lift because they added slivers of ginger flowers (bunga kentang) and lime leaves.

“Cheap and Nice Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We went for dinner on a Friday and the place was crowded. But there were enough tables because there was another unit space next to it available for dinning.
I loved the Assam Fish!!
Comparable to the popular Makko restaurant in terms of price and service. Cheap and Good food.

“TRY IT!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

It was packed with people while we were here during 22 Dec. Managed to get a table for 9 pax. Waiting time was about 30mins for the food to be served.

The food is really nice. Served piping hot! One thing is we order the taufoo and we did not realise it was not served until we have paid and when i checked later. So please make sure they serve all your order and double check the receipt!

Overall, give it a try. Yummy food!

“Malacca Nonya food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Tried this for the 1st time as my favourite was closed. Was disappointed as it tasted average. The nonya dishes did not have the special taste that is indicative of good nonya cooking and was clearly inferior to my favourite Malacca nonya restaurant

“Find a better place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

This was our second try. And last. Most dishes have been watered down. No thick lemak gravies here. Only saving grace was the blended chilli that accompanied the deep fried fish
