This is one of the restaurants in Melaka Raya Main Street and they are constantly filled by tourists on tour groups. The food is generally average and service will be slow if there is a tour group around. The price is comparable to other restaurants in Malacca.

Ole sayang restaurant was the first we tried & it was good in a coarse sort of way. Pineapple prawns according to my mum was fabulous the other dishes we ordered like special chicken (rendang) & itik tim soup... More

We had our nyonya food in this restaurant as the tour agency brought us to this place. The food was spicy and salty, not quite to my liking, will not encourage if you cannot eat spicy food.

Been here twice. Food is too sweet. Surprisingly poor standard for Melaka eatery. Won't ever come back.

Restaurant located at the main road on Melaka Raya, if you get lost, just ask anyone on the street, they will point you the direction. I visit Ole Sayang so many year, the owner very nice, food is wonderful test, and the price is valuable. Highly recommend to try Asam Ikan, Ayam Serai, Sambal Udang, and Cendol after meal.

This is a restaurant that serve delicious nyonya food. My family and I enjoyed the food especially the Assam fish and the spicy prawn with petai. After the end of the meal ,please try their cendol. It is really good. The only problem is to look for parking space.

My parents love coming to this place for their lunch or dinner. This is my second visit. We ate rice with asam pedas ikan, sotong goreng, vege, ayam rendang, telur dada and otak2 (it's spicy). Fish is expensive, expect to pay rm100-150 like that. My favourite thing to do it to eat the kerepek ubi and bought some to bring... More

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!
