The Chap Chye detailed having mushrooms which were not in the dish. I asked why and was told that the restaurant didn't put mushrooms in the Chap Chye anymore. I asked why then did the Menu detail that mushrooms were included? The restaurant replaced the...dish with another mixed vegetable dish. Then we found a hair in the salad leaves of the prawn dish. We told the waiter and he said it must be one of our hairs. In the end, they didn't charge us for the food, but we insisted on paying for everything we had, food and drinks.More

Everything was extremely bad!! The fish was cold, the devil curry was inedible. Even the kangkung belacan was tasteless. Never coming here again!!! Oh wait, only the complimentary food was good.

Enjoyed an evening out with my wife on holiday. We each had a set menu special and shared a jug of lime juice. It was tasty and authentic. And the sagu gula Melaka was the best we have tasted.

Siew Tin's Nyonya Kitchen delivers a good first impression, very bright and clean interior, set in the traditional Nyonya-style house (like in the Ghost Bride drama on Netflix). Was a bit surprised at the price of the food, but at the time, no other Nyonya...food place in Jonker Street open in the evening, and of course, the owner has to make a living while renting in Jonker. Recommended dishes: Gula melaka fried chicken (RM30 for 6 people). Crispy and well served with sticky black gula melaka and coconut flakes! Tofu with sambal: nice egg tofu dish, wish it was bigger haha Asam pedas fish tail: Fresh fish, big enough for 6 of us to eat, with bendi Other dishes: Chap chye was alright, could give it a miss. The lovely waitress gave us pai tee for appetizers (very traditional food, hard to find) and sago gula melaka dessert Overall: The location and ambience is excellent, but the management should capitalize on it by having a few more delicious signature dishes like the Gula melaka fried chicken and asam pedas fish, and perhaps slightly larger portions for rice and vege dishes (to cater for the ravenous young people). It's as pricey as most Nyonya food, so don't let that deter you.More

I am from Peranakan & Nyonya descendance. Hence I have rather high expectations. Having said that - I have tried many Peranakan & Nyonya restaurants but this is one of the worst! We couldn’t even finish 1/4 of the food. Definitely other restaurants to explore...

Tasteless food (prawns with sweet S), rough service, even the green tea undrinkable, price double than the average in city for good food. Hard to believe. Hope this will help other tourists no to fall in the trap.

Dinner in chilled temperature and light rain was improved by amazing chicken wings 🐔. Michael, in particular, served us with excellence.

We went for late lunch in the afternoon and it was not busy at that time. The cooking time for food took a bit long to serve. The taste and quality of food were average. The Butterfly pea Flower rice was good that the rice...did not stick together and tasted good. Ayam Rendang was not good that the chicken was not tender and curry did not taste good.More

Having dinner with my friends. Order 4 dishes based on the recommendation. Photos looks very nice from the menu. But when the food arrive totally out of my expectations. Even the deep fried squids very cold in taste. Price for 4 dishes + 3 nyonya...cendol cost RM174.60 Really overpriced.More

We are here on a wed evening and there’s no queue. Food was served within 20min. The Ayam buah keluak (regular comes with 3pc), sambal petai prawns were awesome. Belacan Kangkong(generous portion), otah ( steamed, soft) were ok. Fish maw soup can give a miss....The hospitable lady boss came to give us very nice kueh pietie. Later seeing that we still have sambal, she gave a bowl of bluepea basmati rice( cooked with cashew and raisin) which was so fragrant. We finished our yummy dinner with chendol(gula melaka and santan were fragrant, chendol isn’t the best we had tasted) and chinchow- which goes well to douse the fire from the sambal. 4 of us spent rm150,which Is very reasonable. They also sell pineapple tart, hei bee hiam, sambal, archar, gula Melaka for takeaway. Will be back again!More
