Reviewed April 29, 2014

alternative chicken rice ball restaurant if "other two" are full. this restaurant has bigger premises compare with others, thus queue is not that long. plus, more food items on menu. t

chicken served was average, nothing special. chicken rice balls are too tightly compressed.

“Average rice ball & chicken ”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

I visited this place over the Easter weekend to find out what was the hype all about. Well on jonker area this is one chicken restaurants which has a fair bit of queue.I had my meal around 1 plus and by then all the kampung chickens were sold out. Was only given a choice of the standard steamed chicken. Coming from Singapore where chicken rice is also a local delicacy, I couldn't really find their version fantastic. The chicken rice balls were standard 5 a person. However the rice balls were slightly cold and hard. Chicken was also pretty average. If you are in malacca can try for the experience

“Not nice at all”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Fragrance rice is not tasty. Rice ball is tasteless as well but the fragrance rice is better. only roasted chicken is nice compared to steamed chicken, roasted pork and bbq pork. The vege is not nice. The employees forgets your order, remember to check your bill before paying. Over-rated. No point trying.

“Authentic Chinese food...”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

“Overrated”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

Our 1st choice was Chung Wah, but it was close when we reach here and we came in to this shop as we saw some good review from the internet. We order steamed chicken, otak-otak and veg, quite disappointed because all of the dishes were served cold, the chicken was not fresh as it has a weird smell.
