We had chicken and rice ball.
The chicken comes with the liver tasted good, juicy & tender.
Rice ball is too much for the 2 of us, but taste delicious. The chili sauce is great too.

We paid less than RM20 for both of us - chicken, rice balls & drinks.
Not expensive and reasonable price to us.

We like the surrounding.
This restaurant is housed in an old shop house with and open court yard and many side rooms

Well worth a visit and would definitely be back.

The restaurant occupies a lovely old 2-storey house that has been restored and refurbished. It's located next to the red building occupied by "San Shu Gong" at one end of Jonker Street, but the signboard is not very prominent.
We ordered 1/4 chicken, some vegetables, chicken rice and a coconut for brunch. (The chicken rice balls are only available after 12 noon when more kitchen assistants start work.) The food was fairly tasty - not too salty - and very reasonably priced.
But I was more fascinated by the building, which was probably home to a rich family many decades ago. A good place to have a quick, simple meal.

I feel the chicken was better than Chung wah, it was served warm compared to Chung wah but the Assam fish was disappointing and too expensive.

Personally think it's overrated. The rice taste not bad but the chicken served is disappointing . Almost half of the chicken served appear to to reddish, which is quite spoiling our appetite.. Feeling slightly disappointed since we set quite a high expectation upon seeing good reviews from others..

My wife and I usually have lunch at this restaurant once a month for the past many years. We like this restaurant because besides chicken rice, they also offer assam fish, black bean soup and vegetables. This suits us very well. It is not true that they no longer serve chicken rice balls. Due to short-handedness (lack of staff) they are not able to produce enough rice balls for the day. So they resort to serving chicken rice in addition to rice balls. This restaurant in a completely renovated old Malaccan house is still very popular.
