Forget the commercialized offerings of A' Famosa and a few others, this place is the real deal. The chicken is tender and juicy and the rice balls, though not my favourite way to eat chicken rice, is flavourful and comes in the right texture. Sadly,...More

Over rated chicken rice restaurant. Nothing fanastic especially the small rice balls. This restaurant is located at beginning of Jonker St. and is very crowded at times. There are many chicken rice stalls in Melaka that are as good or even better and less pricy.

Located in strategic location (near Hard Rock Cafe and Jonker Street Walk) Chung Wah Chicken Rice Ball is a must have culinary place in Malaka, so you better try their authentic taste. I also add chilli garam/Chilli Sambal to add spicy flavour.

Never tried eating alone. But their price are: Whole chicken - Rm44.60 Half chicken - Rm22.30 Rice ball is - Rm0.40 each. (5 balls per serving) I guess your can expect a bill of Rm25.00!
