We were taken to this restaurant by a local and told it was authentic Peranakan food so we were quite excited to taste. Plus we know malacca was an old port town with various spices coming though so wondered what the flavours would be. We ordered around 6 dishes for 3 of us to share. To be honest it was a bit of a let down as the food seemed quite bland to me. The chicken curry was bland, the sour prawn soup wasn’t sour enough, the steamed okra was only ok with the chilli sauce dip. The rice was ok.
We were hungry and appreciated the recommendation so it was ok but I honestly wouldn’t eat there again.
Plus he fact that it was quite busy so they put us up on the 3rd floor which is basically a store room with 3 tables so we were surrounded by boxes and packages as we ate, a bit unusual and not a full peranakan experience for me.

The restaurant always pack so it is advisable to go there earlier.

The food is yummy and delicious. It is suitable for kids too. They also sell nyonya kueh too.

When you in Melaka, should go there as you won’t regret it.

My second visit to this restaurant. The food still as yummy and the price is very reasonable. Steam lady’s fingers is a must try it comes with a spicy and sour sauce which blend so well with the Vege.

Booked a Nyonya cooking class for our colleagues as part of our team building event but it did not happen because of a miscommunication with the staff. Their website is slightly misleading so I would suggest you call them up and double confirm your booking for the cooking class. They only put us down for lunch and not the cooking class. Oh well, lunch was delicious anyway but would’ve been more enjoyable if we had managed to get the cooking class too. Staff apologised and gave us a discount for our food so that was a nice and well appreciated gesture.

Well, Chicken Rendang, Chendol is a must to try. Service was totally fine as well. Nice food always has crowds so your patience of waiting will definitely worth it. Will be back for more.
