was expecting so much from this restaurant since i always see it in many of the blogs about Melaka.. we went there around 1pm so there's no line. we were seated near the door and decided to order roasted pork, wanton soup, chicken rice ball (since this is their specialty) and fragrant rice (in case that we dont like the rice balls).

we made a smart choice of ordering few cups of fragrant rice since the rice ball is not that special. its just a regular chicken rice rolled into a ball. the chicken rice in the hawker near my place is way much better than their chicken rice. so overrated. their roasted pork and wanton soup are also not that delicious. way too expensive since roasted pork is 9rm for regular serving, wanton soup is 8rm, fragrant rice is 1.3rm and their chicken rice ball (small.. as in small portion) is 0.30rm each.. sooo expensive, try other food station along jonker walk and not this..

Crowded but ended up nothing special when food served. Rice did not have that distinct aroma of chicken rice and service was quite disorganized when crowded.

There's a small shop down the corner. The original one, hand-rolled and chicken more tastier.

We weren't expecting much, having been warned that chicken rice balls would be like chicken rice, just in ball shapes. But we were pleasantly surprised. The balls had more flavour than plain rice, and the chicken was delicious.

Melaka is famous with Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball. This shop is a fake! taste horrible and it does not represent the authentic chicken rice ball in Melaka.

I went there with a bunch of my church mates, youngest being 15 and oldest being 30+. We took two tables and we waited for sometime before we were seated & before our food was served. Food-wise, very good, ambiance-wise, a bit poor.
