“A Little too much hassle”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

A beautiful location, right on the river which could make for a peacegful afternoon stroll except for the hassle of the cycle rickshaws who can be intimidating and often deliberately get into your photos and then ask for a 'donation'

“Was better years ago.....”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We were there the week before Christmas and were treated to a surprise party at the square. Kids and adults came in truckloads dressed as santas, and the houses had Christmas deco. Nov may be early, but there were no signs of christmas lights or deco. All we had were touts at the seafood cafes. We left so as not to have to choose from any!

“Good food..”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Have dinner here in every trip to Malacca. Good seafood. Visited Stall no.1. Always love their Fried Chicken Wings...Tried that Sweet and Sour crab which I think it's better than their Salt and Pepper Crab..

“Nice open space”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Lots of hardselling by the restaurant "salesperson" but after we sat down, they didnt bother with "after-sales service".

We waited for more than 30 mins for food to be served.
