My wife and I enjoyed good service at a reasonable price alongside the Melaka River. The two different chicken curry dishes were excellent and reasonably priced, the seating arrangements--plastic chairs, etc.--are pretty standard in budget establishments in Melaka but that did not detract from the quality of what was offered.

Went in at lunch time looking for a tea tarik and perhaps a little something to eat.
She said they didn't make the tea by pouring it between cups but that we could mix the milk ourselves. She brought out a mug with a tea bag in and some tesco value creamer. Not exactly tea tarik.
We didn't see her again to be asked if it was ok and I even had to go inside to settle the bill. She refused to take the 8MYR for 2 untouched crappy teas off the bill and then tried to short change me for some strange reason.

Only saving grace was the bit of food we had was nice.

My last night in Melaka, and was looking for something other than a laksa. Friendly staff who were more then willing to offer advice re house specials etc. Would definitely revisit.

We lunched at the Riverine by good fortune as some other places were not open on a Monday. We originally dismissed this place because it was a little out of the way for us. Luckily we ended up here after all.

The place is small given its location within the heritage zone along the Malacca River. We saw it during the river cruise and so it was nice to see the road-side entrance and the long, narrow interior. We sat by the river and enjoyed the breeze & sights there.

We had the nyonya laksa, fried rice and noodles. The laksa was sumptuous, rich and flavourful. The latter 2 orders were ordinary in name but the execution at Riverine was different and made for a pleasant surprise visually & tastewise.
