When u see the long queue feel attraction to try the food of that place. That's what happened to me and my friends who decided to have lunch late wishing to find less people there, to get a seat took us just around 10min. Reviewing the food, it's an easy choice because they just offer 2 dishes, rice balls and... More

It is not worth queuing under the sun and ultimately did not enjoy the food as it taste lousy. Rice ball full of msg. And we were also forced to take the chicken organs where we do not take at all.

nicer than the others I tried at Melaka.... serving of food is fast... movements in the shop are all fast, so don't expect to hang around after you finished yr meal... be considerate to people who r queue-ing under the sun... and at least there is a queue system and not to find seats on your own...

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
