The food is not too bad, this used to be the only restaurant I knew at Melaka since 15 years ago. It is now bigger than before since the last time i visited several years ago, but the food seems much better then, may be I ordered the wrong food this time.

Went to Ole Sayang on 19th November 2016 for lunch with friends. 40 of us and was on a tour group occupying 4 tables. Table space setting was cramp and their Staff serving food couldn't bother with a word, "Excuse Me". All they does was using their bumps to push it through knocking on your back of the chairs signaling... More

And chendol is nice. And their... More

These dishes were tasted: - Asam Fish Head - Fried Kang Kong - Otak Otak - Chincalok Egg Omelette - Spicy Prawns - Chendol (desert) As taste is subjective, this only for reference after my tasting. The Asam Fish Head sourness could be enhanced by adding a pinch of salt after the hot Asam gravy added to the fish head.... More

This is one of the restaurants in Melaka Raya Main Street and they are constantly filled by tourists on tour groups. The food is generally average and service will be slow if there is a tour group around. The price is comparable to other restaurants in Malacca.

Having read the reviews on tripadvisor & planning our trip ahead we decided to give the main nyonya restaurants a try. Ole sayang restaurant was the first we tried & it was good in a coarse sort of way. Pineapple prawns according to my mum was fabulous the other dishes we ordered like special chicken (rendang) & itik tim soup... More

We had our nyonya food in this restaurant as the tour agency brought us to this place. The food was spicy and salty, not quite to my liking, will not encourage if you cannot eat spicy food.

Restaurant located at the main road on Melaka Raya, if you get lost, just ask anyone on the street, they will point you the direction. I visit Ole Sayang so many year, the owner very nice, food is wonderful test, and the price is valuable. Highly recommend to try Asam Ikan, Ayam Serai, Sambal Udang, and Cendol after meal.

Thank carpenter6477
