Enjoyed our lunch; the spicyness and flavour of the dishes we order was well balanced. Fully recommend the Eggplant, Okra, Ayam Lime dish. Service was excellent and friendly. Must visit if you want a interesting outlook on traditional Melaka nyonya food.

I don't know but I don't think so since I did not see any Malay customers and the cooks are Chinese.
