The food at this restaurant was excellent! Everything we had tickled our palates (assam fish, chicken rendang, sambal shrimp, salted vegetables and duck soup, cincalok omelette and nonya chap chye). However, we felt the otak-otak was a disappointment as we felt it was bland-tasting and its texture was too soft. The highlight of our meal was the massive bowl of... More

We went on Sunday afternoon as we couldn't find a seat in Makko. The staff were very impatient. Refused to say how much is a fish dish and say the kitchen will decide.Was thinking how costly can it be in Malacca and just order it. At the end of ordering, she snatch my menu and walk off. The chicken and... More

Authentic Peranakan - all freshly cooked. Quite extensive menu, good service. Best dishes - the chilli prawns and the Special Chicken (bit like a rendang). The Otah also very good but needs at least two servings for a group of 5.

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.

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
