Chicken here is of a nice size n juicy. Rice ball is delicious. Chillie plus the sweet sauce makes it all a happy dish. Just a little thought from me to you (who are reading this). Try to eat the rice ball as a whole. I feel it is more flavourful this way. 😁 i think. Overall, a very enjoyable... More

Went there for lunch. Chicken rice ball is tasty. Chicken smooth and yummy. Have not tried other chicken rice ball yet. So this restaurant tasted good to me.

There are a number of chicken rice ball restaurants in Malacca, particularly on/off Jonker Street. Didn't have a queue (unlike Chung Hwa which consistently has a long queue) so we came in here. Chicken ball rice was good but the chicken itself was okay - not as good as other establishments For this visit to Malacca, not having to queue... More

Me and my family go there at 29/1/2017. Queue up 45 minutes for dine in. They do not provide any vegetables that day due to not enough manpower. The chicken rice ball and asam fish are really disappointed. Any of the chicken rice stall at Selangor and WP area that I had, the taste is much more better than here.... More

While this is not the best chicken rice in Malacca, it is most certainly not one of the worse. Of the top 3 competing giants along Jonker Street (Hoe Kee, Chung Hwa & Famosa), Hoe Kee still comes out the winner - quick and friendly service, spacious & airy interior, larger seating capacity. Go for the loose chicken rice which... More

This restaurant closes at 3pm and the lunch line up starts at 11am! We joined the line and enjoyed pretty good chicken rice. Good prices. Loud and abrasive service. Nice atmosphere. A good lunch overall.

I went with my friends few days ago as my friend insisted to go and try it out!! The chicken rice balls taste really bad!!!!! We had the first bite and we stopped eating the chicken rice balls. Don't queue, it is definitely not worth your time. My friends were really disappointed and we had to go to another restaurant... More

I ordered chicken with rice ball, spicy fish stew and stir-fry cabbage. The chicken was really good; tender and juicy. However, riceball was too moisted. I prefered the original rice more. I arrived around 11 on weekday so there was not much crowded. It was on jonker street near the river.

Maybe the taste is the original one... different taste with chicken rice in singapore or different place, but good enough and unique for me. Overall it's great. You must try rice ball and asam pedas fish in here...
