Chinese dishes which are good value for money and tasty. Even a whole steamed fish is not that expensive. A little annoying habit they have is to keep coming over and topping up our beer glasses, blatantly trying to get us to spend more on drinks.

This is a restaurant that has been around for decades. They have a few signature dishes like chicken cooked with peanuts or chicken in thai style sauce. You can even order a dish that combines 2 different styles of cooking side by side. The waitress will gladly tell you what their specialties are to help you order. Good food with... More

The noodles, tofu & vegetable dishes we ordered were fine & reasonably priced. However we ordered black pepper crab (price based on weight) Looked like was only 2 medium sized crabs bill was 114RM. We felt this was a bit steep based on the size of the crabs. I think the owner may have been havin a laugh!

Attend a wedding dinner here. The waitress is terrible. During setting up the table, she throws spoon and plate on table. Serving with very bad manner. Always show her angry face to customers. The worst restaurant I ever meet.

This restaurant is very close to Mimosa Hotel and Madam Kings Emporium. Many local family go there for their dinner (birthday or family gathering). The prices are quite reasonable. Average price is about 6-8RM for small size dish (good for 2-4 persons). However fish, prawns and crabs are based on the market price. Best is to ask for the price... More

We have dined at this restaurant 3 times during our 4 night stay in Malacca because we don't believe that we could find a better food at such a great price (we tried one further up the Trip Advisor ratings and were disappointed, so we returned to our old favourite). The locals flock here for the crabs and fish which... More
