Very simple yet delicious Nyonya food! Big thumbs up for their Nyonya laksa and rendang. We queued for a bit before we got a seat, but the queue was so worth it!

Best laksa I have ever tasted. The toppings for the laksa was quite little. The Ayam Ketuk ( blue rice and chicken rendang) was perfect. Rice was fluffy and colour looks nice. Chicken rendang was delicious without being too dry or hard.

Great intro from friends for lunch. Eat their specialty laksa, nasi kerabu and cendol. Really a must try, esp the laksa with big prawns.

We had Laksa, Mee Siam, Ayam Ketuk Nasi Kerabu. All dishes turns out fantastic. Especially their specialty, Laksa. I personally think the Mee Siam is really good too! Their Laksa sells out fast, so be there early. Worth a visit when you are in Melaka.
