Cannot remember anything outstanding. Service crew looks grumpy, rushed us to place our order and decided on the size of dishes herself. When we were deliberating over a replacement dish as the black nut chicken wasn't available, we wanted to place order for drinks first but were rejected. "Food first, only 5 dish for 8 pax?" Food was salty, salted... More

Good size portion serving, a bit on the pricey side. But the food is good, except for the chilli squid. The otak-otak is a must try!

We had a spread consisting of Assam fish head curry, fish otah, salted veg duck soup, braised chicken, kangkong w garlic, chap chye, fu yong omelette, smelly beans w chilli and chendol for dessert. Total RM295 for 8 pax. That's not too... More

Been hoping around a few others Nyonya restaurant in Melaka, and I'm always glad to be back at Ole Sayang. The consistency in taste and quality of the food on offer justified the slightly pricier pricetag. I visited during a weekday noon, the crowd was manageable, service was great. Ordered Ayam ponteh, asam fish, omelette, Kangkung, otak-otak and of course... More

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
