It has been always so crowded, packed with groups of tourist. Food is lousy and pricey. Not recommended. There are better places in Melaka for Nyonya food. It takes more than two hour for the food to be served!

Food is undoubtedly good. But can be too crowded at dinner time or during special occasion and function when it is fully booked. It is better to book in advance if you want to be sure of a place. Lots of tourists also patronize the restaurant. Price is above average.. Nice interior with nyonya style decoration.

I had dinner here with my husband on a Saturday evening, it was crowded, the restaurant was packed about 7+pm. Thankfully we were able to get a table as there were only two of us, some bigger families had to wait. Ordered asam pedas fish, fried egg with cincaluk, stir fried kang kung in garlic, and sambal belachan as condiment,... More

We were invited by a friend to have lunch at the Restoran Ole Sayang Nyonya Restaurant in Melaka. It is situated along Jalan Merdeka (One Way Street) and near by Jalan Merdeka 12. Most of the food they offer are spicy but a few Chinese dishes are also availabe. The cooking was not as good as the few times we... More

First time lunch at this generation-old restaurant. The ambience is homely and comfortable. Staff are friendly. Order few typical nyonya dishes - Ponteh chicken, Asam fish... very good. Rice and tea are served generously. Price is on high side but must take into consideration its location and touristic spot.

I am sad to say the quality and taste of Nyonya Food here has dropped, compared to 2 years ago. We came in a group which took up 2 tables. All of us who have been here before we're very disappointed with the taste and quality. We wondered if they have changed their kitchen staff? Pls bring back the good... More

The restaurant is clean and the ambience is homely. The staff are friendly but the food isn't something to brag about. The dishes didn't have the authentic nyonya flavour, the flavours were a bit diluted and the portions were small.

I love this place. I'll start as usual with my take on the ambiance. It is classic, antique and old school. The photo's on the wall tells a history of the beginnings of the restaurant which has been running for generations. The furniture are as antique as the rest of the interior. Service is good, efficient and the waiters know... More

Not delicious but acceptable only. If you are looking for typical nyonya food then better not this restaurant. Price not cheap too.

Pretty disappointed with the quality of the dishes served by this restaurant because it is a restaurant highly recommended by locals as I was told it is the few places that serve really authentic nyonya cuisine and has been around for a long time. Probably my rating is due to my high expectations since it was so highly rated by... More
