“Fantastic, imaginative food at affordable prices in a great environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

We had starters, main course and local desserts with four diet coke for less than 50 RM. This was lunch and already decided to return tonight. Looks like they have live music too. Looking around, it's not just our table that are happy!

“Cool oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

To ease into this restaurant, in one of Melaka's traditional buildings was to find a paradise away from the heat. Friendly staff organised fans and misters to cool us as we ordered cold beers, served in chilled glasses. The Malaysian cuisine featured some great rice dishes. Our pineapple rice came served in a scooped out pineapple, very tasty and a good sized helping.
After refueling and relaxing we were ready to cope with more narrow streets, stunning architecture and the heat.
The outside eating is in a courtyard

“Best Chicken Rice Ball in Malacca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

Here is the best chicken rice ball in Malacca, much better than those so-called "best chicken rice ball". The texture of the chicken here is just nice, others are too soft. Other than the food, the restaurant is a historical building since 1673 from a Dutch family.

“If you like history this is the place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

In a restored Tax Office for the Dutch East India Trading Company dating from 1673 this Bistro is a great place to escape the heat....Tons of local history and a very friendly and accomodating staff. Cold beer and some of the best fried eel that I have ever tasted. Prices are reasonable for the area and the entertainment at night is very enjoyable. A must stop for anyone visiting this UNESCO World Heritage site.
