A though you need to queue for an hour under the sun and the shop is not air con, the chicken is good. It's very tasty. However, the price is not cheap.

Came to Jonker just to review this well known chicken rice ball. Loated just at the cross junction of jonker walk beside the bridge. This old shop house is usually very crowded with tourists and locals alike. Do come in before 11.30am so you need not wait too long. Standard half chicken with 5 smaller than ping pong chicken balls... More

I do not understand why so many people queue up for this chicken rice, its really not worth queue up and waited at least 20 to half an hours for your food to be served. it is not as good as before. especially the rice ball, shrunk like ping pong ball n tasteless, wont be back again.

I was very curious about the long line outside this shop as early as 11 am.. Therefore I decided to try it! I went to several chicken rice ball shops in Melaka and I can vouch that this is the best one ever. Everything was perfect. Would definitely come back again

The food was average. The chicken is hard. Rice was not as fragrant as expected. Good thing is it comes in small servings to avoid wastage of food. Had to queue for about 30 mins in the morning.

Thank Mei Y
