First trip to Melaka and we were looking for somewhere to eat (other than a Mamak), and saw this restaurant. The first impression was that it was clean and very well done up. We sat down and the owner came over to us and engaged in a friendly conversation with us. She recommended the Buah Keluak Chicken dish, which was absolutely divine!

Another catch, is that is baby friendly. They made sure that the food was not too spicy, as our little one hates spice. To keep the little one entertained they bought out some toys.

Good quality food, clean and baby friendly - this is truly a hidden gem in Malaysia.

We had supper yesterday and ordered a half dozen dishes just before closing time; the staff were kind, friendly and helped us avoid over ordering. And the good was fresh and very tasty, we have had the dishes before elsewhere but they were cooked much better here. We will go back fir sure, and happy to recommend to everyone looking for great nyonya food

Visited based on the positive reviews however rather disappointed on the food. Food portion is good but taste wise is over rated. Do note sambal Chilli is chargeable.

Peranakan food was prepared home made style. We enjoyed the Pongteh, Fried Fish
with the sambal placed separately. The nyonya spring rolls was tasty even though it was not cooked with pork meat. The Restaurant does not serve pork and no wine but can have beer. We were disappointed with the coffee served as it came in big "jugs" and tasted diluted and tasted like the "three in one" white coffee. We ordered for four people and everybody just took a sip and did not finish it . We were the only guest s of four on the day we had lunch.

We stumbled upon Manis J when walking back to the Majestic hotel one afternoon and thought we'd return for dinner. We were so glad we did!

The staff were amazingly friendly. It was more like eating in their home rather than a restaurant.

We'd never tried nonya food so let our waiter Jimmy order for us. The food that arrived was delicious. Even my fussy children tried it and enjoyed it!

Will be back next time we are in Melaka :)
