Excellent food and service. Waitress was able to help us to decipher several Malaysian dishes and help us choose. The local fish in a spice sauce was really good, along with sides of mixed veg and big plate of rice. All fresh, excellent quality and really good value for money. We got the last table at around 6.20pm, place absolutely... More

Arrived exactly at 6 pm, there was a few people waiting outside already. The restaurant opens at 6 pm. Friendly staffs. Delicious nyonya food. What we loved most was the egg omelette. Super awesome. The other food were great too. Will come back here again next time.

Dishes are fine but not suitable for those that can't take spicy foods. Those that enjoy spicy foods will recommended. The dishes are well known of its spice and cendol is a must after meal. The services are fast but have to wait outside if there are too many peoples.

Serving of food are really fast (less than 5 minutes of wait), queuing for table to be seated are long if no advance booking. Overall the food are really delicious and spicy(if you love spicy) and deserve a thumbs up!

This is probably the first Nyonya restaurant that one should visit upon arrival to Melaka. The location is good in the heart of the tourists attraction, near to Hotel Equatorial, 3 mins walking distance from Hotel Novotel and Hatten Square. There are ample car park in front of the restaurant. The restaurant opened at 6pm but there already a small... More

Makko is my favorite peranakan restaurant whenever I visit malacca. I have been a regular here for at least 10 years, the standard & quality of the food have been consistent, fresh and tasty. Service staff are friendly, efficient and kitchen staff are fast efficient in churning out our orders. I always have chendol for my dessert without fail whenever... More

This place is parked during lunch/dinner hour. Certainly overrated and the food is mediocre. The standard has certainly dropped compares to many years back. You miss nothing if you have not been to the place.

Makko Nyonya Restaurant in Melaka was recommended by a Kuala Lumpar friend. Twelve of us arrived at exactly 6 p.m., when they had just opened up. A queue was already being turned away; I overheard that reservation was necessary at least a day ahead--hearing that, imagine my expectation. Inside, historic photos on the wall added charm to the otherwise dowdy... More

Tried this Nonya restaurant during my recent trip to malacca. Reached there at 6 plus and there were already long queue forming. Managed to get seated near 7 pm. I must say no regret waiting for the seats as the food was one of the best I have tasted in Malacca. Plus their chendol reminded me of my childhood days... More
