Something I cook myself at times, I thought the chicken was moist and tasty, and the rice balls were succulent with chicken broth. Don't expect to sit here on hours, but a great place to have a quick and very tasty, professionally made meal.

They restrict your rice purchase to 5 rice balls per pax! And not only that, they do not have roasted chicken!!! Horrible. I do not recommend this anymore!

The chicken and rice balls were just ok. The sauce they were served with was quite good. The food was pretty cheap.

The hot sale food is chicken, which tasted soft and a little bit sweet. It is very friendly to people who cannot eat spicy. They also serve other food. The price is considered cheap. However, this is a very busy restaurant. You probably need to...More

It is so fun to enjoy fish ball soup along with chicken rice. Oh, it is an oasis on a steamy Meleka shopping day. We always have soup and some fresh Malaysian vegetables. Have an iced tea and chill.

Wanted to try the famous rice balls in Melaka and found this eatery by recommendation. Chicken was moist and tasty with hot sauce. Rice balls were just rice balls. I am glad we tried them but didn’t really see anything special about the whole thing.

1. No idea on on opening times but if it's meal time, just go. 2. Parking.Probably best to leave the car at your hotel - assuming in Merlaka Central - and walk 3. If you're on foot, no need to worry about road closure.

They don't served pork. And there is no halal logo. That's all I can said.
