“Fantastic Kong Bak Pau”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

For the uninitiated Kong Bak Pau is braised pork in a dark sauce which is then served in a separate small steamed bun. The bun is soft and light and the pork is cooked so that it literally melts in your mouth. Decadence is to order additional buns to soak up the remaining sauce. The steamed fish here is also another favourite, as is the fried prawn and asparagas. The restaurant has a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Reservations are usually a necessity during weekends (it is a favourite for wedding banquets) and festivals when it fills up early.

“Traditional home food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Generally food is good, Fried oyster mushroom is a must try. This place is located at Laksamana, which is actually a little inaccessible if staying in Melaka Raya.

“Excellent food as usual!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Bei Zhan has always served excellent food. The last time I visited, they were still at the old location. This new restaurant has nicer decor and more friendly and attentive staff.
The food as usual was excellent. Flavourful soups, well cooked dishes. The must tries are the Braised Fatty pork with the heavenly soft steamed buns and the fried rice.

The deep fried durian dessert was just OK, probably good for introduction to durian or to newbies, but then again, I prefer a more robust durian-y flavour....!

“Showing Malacca Hospitality thru food ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Had friends from Singapore come down for a visit over the weekend. They stayed at City Baywatch hotel. Wanted to show them Malacca hospitality and what else but thru food!

They tasted Laksa (near St. Peter's Church) for breakfast , Indian food at Selvarani
and had Chinese food (non halal) at Bei Zhan for dinner on their last night.

Food was good and reasonable price. Even got thumbs up from my God ma who is a good cook back home in Singapore. We ate till we were full full full !

Words of wisdom : Today we eat and be merry ! Tomorrow we diet!
