Dishes were precooked and not served hot. Portions were small and nothing impressive. Pineapple tarts looked good but did not taste fresh. Nyonya bakchang was so so only. Overall not value for money. Unfriendly staff.

We booked our lunch the day before and went early. Appointment at 12noon arrived at 11:05, the queue outside was 3 shops long. Waited another 20minutes and finally got a table. We tried the chicken buah keluak, beef rendang, bakwan sup, popiah and whole Assam...dish. Best was the Assam fish which had just the right mix of tangy Assam, fish cooked just right. Next was the chicken buah keluak . The nutty buah keluak was creamy and went well with the chicken and gravy. The beef rendang was tasty and a tad too dry. The soup was disappointing as the meatballs were small. Service was average. Overall the food was delicious and well worth the wait. Try to book ahead or be prepared for a long wait.More

We ordered the fried squid, Sambal fried rice and pork dish- all three were good and tasty. The only disappointing one was the pineapple coconut milk prawn. It was bland. Otherwise a great experience. It got pretty crowded and clearly seemed understaffed. Cendol was great...too! Small portion but yummy. Price wise, does feel a little on the upper side. But overall enjoyed the experience. Was a lot more worth it ordering via grab. Save on time and you get discounts!More

We went to Nancy’s kitchen following a long holiday hiatus due to the pandemic. The last we visited this place, food was so delicious so we had to go again. However, we were so dissatisfied with all the dishes specifically the udang masak lemak which...was so bland and not flavourful. We also ordered the sotong goreng, bendi sambal belacan and ikan bilis sambal petai which was dreadful to say the least. The dishes came surprisingly fast so it didn’t seem like they cooked it there and then. Only the PaiTee really lived up to its taste and we enjoyed it. Don’t think I’d be coming here again.More

Lunched here on a day trip with my family. Good food, good value and a lot of selection. Met and chatted with Nancy. The durian mochi cendol is to die for.

This was an extremely disappointing dinner. Food was bland, and I mean really bland. The best thing we had was the chendol, which I would say was only slightly above average. And what made it worse was that as soon as they had served us,...they were more interested to get us out of there so that they can fill the table again with other guests (and we actually made reservations!). This restaurant is often ranked high in many reviews, but I don’t understand whyMore

Food with price was not satisfying, the menu shows chicken/prok rib is WITH buah keluak but actually is WITHOUT keluak, and each charge for rm2, the food is not fresh, not worth for trying

Price is average. But food is not fresh. Compare to their previous generation. It’s two different world of taste. I rather u charge slightly higher price with good quality food provided instead of giving us fair price but inferior food quality.

Why is it so hard for Melaka's restaurants staff to show warmth and welcoming enthusiasm? At "Nancy" and other Peranakan restaurants we were sadly faced with staff who made no eye contact, did not smile or showed any warmth and talked loudly among themselves. It...felt like we were eating in someone else's home and intruding on. Where is the F&B professionalism seen in HK,Thailand or Japan. In China they shout a robust " welcome , welcome or Huān yíng huān yíng, qǐng zuò , in Japan "irasshaimase" but in Melaka,they were sullen and stare at you ? Is it Covid or a habitual public response?More
