Lunch on 24th Sept 2012
We had a simple selection of the dishes shown in the menu. The portion was just nice for our group of 4. All the dishes were served piping hot at the same time.
Worth the money and time spent waiting.

I tried Nancy's Kitchen only because it was recommended by many people as well as tripadvisor reviewers but I was not at all happy with the food. The Itik tim soup was too peppery and the kacang botol stir fried with sambal was pretty bland.In comparison to other peranakan restaurants ive tried in Penang , this definately doesnt measure up. If you happen to want to good onde-onde, this place sells it in ready packed plastic boxes and its pretty good.

We ate here as it was recommended by Lonely Planet. The food is Nyonya food which is quite spicy but delicious. The spring rolls are a must and made outside the premises. The staff were friendly and there were interesting pictures on the walls.

Our only gripe was that the plates were not taken straight away; rather plates and food remains were put in a large bucket in full view of where we and others were sitting!

We went there for lunch and tried the nyonya fried rice, nyonya fried rice noodle, poppiah and pork lobak, all very tasty, big portion for reasonable fair price. I think this restaurant is now ran by the 3rd generation of the family.
Satisfactory .....

I went here on the good reviews on TA and Lonely Planet. Staff were OK, not overly friendly but not unfriendly. Good menu selection and fairly priced but the food was just average in my opinion. the house special candlenut chicken was nothing special either.

Worth a try if you are in the area, but don't go out of your way.
