I was recommended to try this restaurant, and went on the hunt for it. After some searching, I finally found it! It is on the same side of the road as Holiday Inn or Makota Hotel. About a 5-10 min walk from Holiday Inn. I have included a picture of their card with a map of their location.

I went on a night that was not crowded, and according to the owner, it was because of pre-election rallies. The owner was very friendly and recommended us to a few dishes to try. We had pie-tee, ikan gerang asam, ayam pongteh, and kangkung kobis keledek masak titik lemak. The food was great, and tasted better than many other nonya restaurants I have tried in Meleka.

The owner was also going from table to table talking to the guests and asking how the food was to their taste. He mentioned that he wanted to give 3 things to his customers - (1) good tasty food, (2) good portion of food, and (3) good price. He has certainly delivered on all 3.

The little touches like having rice served in a traditional basket, and ice water with a scent of pandan (they most probably soaked pandan leaves in the water) adds to the experience of the restaurant.

I will definitely be going back to Amy's on my next trip to Melaka!

Apart from the ayam (chicken) pongteh and the udang nanas (pineapple prawns), the other dishes we ordered such as pie tee, chap chye, fried chicken, and cincalok omelette were made to order and they were divine. The pie tee and cincalok omelette were truly outstanding along with the cendol. It was a great idea to order the food when we reserved out table so we did not have to wait long for our food at all. It was also really charming to have the owner-chef, Amy personally serve the dishes. It was really hospital of Amy's husband to provide pineapple tarts on the house and they were so wonderful we had to buy 3 bottles! Go and eat at Amy's when you get a chance before she gets more famous and make it difficult to get a table.

Truly amazing, despite everything Amy has done she is still working away in the kitchen and talking to visitors.

The food and service here is outstanding no matter what you have you will be blown away.

This you must book in advance. The assam fish dish is a must try. All their dishes ingredients are fresh - you can just taste it! And the portion is huge for the small size one too!

Perhaps because we have been eating in many places in Melaka, we found the food here is nice but not different or special compared to others. Attentive owner, but other staff need some courtesy training, we were asked (rather rudely) why we came earlier than our booking time. Not that they are full at the time we arrived. Overall the food is OK, nothing to complain nor praise a lot. Quality of ingredients is evident, thus the food was considered OK. Owner was honest in explaining the food menu, so we don't end up ordering and paying for food we wouldn't like. Do watch for coconut milk infused food, if you don't like them. Limited items on the menu is another point to note.
