Very good place for Nyonya cuisine. Nice authentic Nyonya food. New and clean. The cendol is good. You get to add the Gula Melaka yourself from the bottle.

Friendly service with good food. We had the pie tee (not great), pandan chicken, itek tim (salted veg and duck soup) and kangkung belacan (good) and chilli crab (yum!), finished with durian chendol (yum, yum!). Worth a try.

Chap Chye : failed. More like a mere fried cabbage. Cabbage green still exist. Pie Tee: filling was ok but the pie Yee cup was soft and the Chilli chuka was too sweet. They were out of Ayam for the Ayam Buah keluak so they sold us just the nut. The gravy was good so the dish should be better... More

Was queuing up at another restaurant nearby and decided to give this restaurant a try. One of the better restaurants that serves authentic Nyonya food. Food is good and pricing reasonable as the portion is big. Service is good and staff are friendly.

Chance upon this place and tried their food. It was all so delicious. Though I can't remember the exact name of the food, it does show me how some Peranakan food taste like. Wifi available and it's halal too!

Last year, when it first opened, the food was great so we decided to visit again. But this time, it was TERRIBLE. In fact, if you do NOT consider the food to be Peranakan, then it is still edible. But if you are looking for authentic Peranakan food, go elsewhere. They changed their chef and the Ayam Buah Kelak tasted... More

Pretty nice but a bit pricey for locals. Tourist can go ahead and try the local food by coming here for dinner!
