We were told to eat the famous melaka rice balls with chicken. They were good but not that special. Maybe they were better at other places. The riceballs are cheap (0,3rm each), but the chicken was a dissapointment. For 14rm we got only a tiny piece of chopped chicken (more bones than chicken). For 1rm we also got a tiny... More

Price is affordable. Limited seats inside. Go after 330pm less people and can eat comfortably. During lunch time it's full and had to Q up. Go during weekdays is advisable

Food here was excellent and service at this area was prompt. The chicken rice ball was excellent and brings back old memories of the past. The service was pretty efficient even though there were a lot of customers and it was full house when we were there.

It's totally not worth the queue- they use cheap grade chicken and the doesn't have much chicken taste to begin with. Don't even start with the Asam fish- they steamed it before hand and placed it...
