“overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The chicken rice ball is cold and rice grain all broken. Chicken is not tender.
Definitely not worth the time queuing for it.

“Nothing great”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Found this place to be fine. Nothing great about Chicken Rice ball. But i liked the fragrant rice more than the rice ball. Even the steamed chicken was pretty good. But I cant say for sure which one is good. Parking is an issue. Get coupons for parking.

The rice ball is just good. Located in the Jonker street. Personally I will prefer foods on the street but I really want to try this place so yeah...

“A recommended resto in Melaka”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Unique, old and has a various delicious food with not too expensive price. Just try the fish ball menu, but reconsider the rice ball. :)

“Terrible chicken rice balls”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We made the big mistake of coming here to try the chicken rice balls. They were terrible and had no taste and were awfully dry. After coming here, you can understand why people were queuing at the other two more reputable chicken rice ball restaurants on the same street (I learned about these too late), and this one wasn't full. Even the other food we ordered was substandard, and the only decent thing was the coconut!
