If it hadn't have been for some fairly average service (having to chase drinks and the bill) this would have been a 5 star review.

A wonderful setting by the river teed us up for a great lunch but we never expected so much for so little. We only ordered some special fries done with Iran bilis, chilli and peanuts along with the star - a njonja chicken dish done with a weird yet wonderful nut type thing.

Apparently, it's an acquired taste but not for us it wasn't as we loved it straight away. The gravy was immense and it was so good here we tried to go back for dinner too! Missed out though as it was shutting at 8pm - doh!!

Definitely worth a visit.

The nyonya dishes were just average, we ordered a curry, sambal brinjal, otak-otak and commando fries. The otak otak felt like it was supermarket bought frozen type. The curry was too diluted and not creamy enough.
The brinjals and the commando fries were good.

We waited close to an hour for lunch. A ridiculous amount of time to wait for any food anywhere. And the beer is completely over priced. We left without our food we were so bloody annoyed! We refused to wait any longer and be ignored.

Dinner for two, surprising very good food. Why surprising? we came across the 'coffeehouse' with a menu black board and 2 guys/staff smoking at the front. Walked in, a group of dinners - chatting over a finished meal left uncleared from the table. Even with this rather non promising start, the meal was very good. The Ikan Masak (Fish with Chilli & Onion) was complex, fragrant with a right balance of sweetness. The Ayam Masak Cili Garam (Nyonya Chicken) was a fusion of curry, lime, aniseed and more..... Kankung Belacan was fresh, cruchy, aromatic without being too salty. The service was good, they are there to take the order. They did not rush us, did not try to sell to us. I would preferred they clear the table when we are done. There was a short history of the restaurant owners family history, pictures of the old Malacca, which was very interesting. My wife and I had a very good night there.
