The exterior of the shop looks really old and nostalgic but, please don't judge the food from the outlook of the shop. The chicken rice are really out of the world because it wasn't those typical served chicken rice that we have anywhere. The rice balls was an added bonus as it enhances the dish. It is a "Must EAT"... More

Over expected after reading comments online. Ok lunch and long queue before getting in to order. Preferred rice on plate then in ball shape. Chicken was ok.

You'd miss this shop if it weren't for the snaking queue at the small entrance. This is simply the BEST chicken rice ball in town - and there are several within a 500m radius at Jonker Walk. The chicken is succulent while the rice balls are soft and flavourful. Queued for 15 mins on a scorching hot public holiday but... More

We tried both Famosa and this. We find the chicken rice ball here better. However, it is just novelty food. Been there and done that. Tasted better chicken rice and chicken.

my colleague recommended me to try this chicken rice ball when she knew that I planned to visit Malacca. The restaurant is easy to find but I came there too late. The shop closed already. The next morning, I came back with a big curious. The shop wasn't full, and I was a bit confused. I ordered the chicken rice... More
