Tasteless nyonya Laksa, watered down beer, plain cooked rice instead of ketupat to go with satay.. purely for foreigners . My son didn't mind the taste of his steak which was well done despite ordering medium well

Looked great, - outside seating - nice. Band was starting up, - too loud. Local food a bit boring and bland. Drinks OK and OK priced

Good for big groups as the space is quite large. Typical local food and some western options are available. Food is average quality and service is ok.

Had a dinner here with 15 other people. Service worked well and also food was pretty OK. They were also open rather late opposite to many other restaurants in Melaka which close at 5 pm on weekdays.

I've travelled widely around Malaysia. This was the worst meal I have had. I ordered the chilli chicken local special. It was totally inedible -I never knew chicken could consist entirely of fat. I was almost sick!!! The sauce was thick and gooey. Absolutely horrible. In addition, they have the worst out of tune singers !

My 12 year old son devoured a steak my King po chicken and most of the rice plus a mocktail while barely drawing breath. Was very pleased. I had a Caesar salad which was cool and crisp. Service was swift and the price reasonable. The location on Jonkers Street is surprisingly quiet set in a courtyard back from the road... More

Despite being on Jonker Street itself, it is a surprisingly relaxing lil bisro that has a nice variety of food. Dined there with a group of 8 people and everyone managed to have what they wanted. I would come here again to try the rest of the menu.

I had a Prawn chowder that was simply superb and good value at RM14.80++ then had a Pineapple fried rice with seafood RM15.80++ This was a bit on the small side. They even have Savanna cider for any South Africans that visit. Attached... More

Not a bad meal. I had the seafood fried rice and Fresh Mango. Pretty good and not expensive. They also had pretty good wifi and the service was quick.
