Small but excellent local restaurant I did finally find in Melaka^^ Excellent taste made me forget much sweat when I dropped on the way here. Solo travel stopped me from enjoying more kinds of food. I promised next time with my family.

Average tasting. Cramp environment. Priced high considering the food taste quality and space constraints. Will not revisit as there are other nonya restaurants in town with better food / more comfortable environment.

Went on a Monday afternoon for lunch and ordered a lunch set. Once the food is served, realised that it is not really worth the money. RM15 for just a simple curry chicken rice with ice lemon tea. Plus, it tasted really normal, even below...More

Homecooked meal in a quaint Peranakan kitchen. Try the 'gulai daun keledek'...the gravy is really lovely. The asam pedas ikan senangin is also tasty, although abit pricey at RM45 per serving. You can taste the gula melaka and real santan in their cendol!
