Malacca has been our local restaurant to go to whenever there is a celebration or an occasion. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. Customer service is top notch. We always order Chicken lettuce wrap and Malacca combination for our starters alongside other starters. Never disappointing. For main, we always order steamed sea bass.. Just talking about it makes my... More

Dealt with politely when booking a table for two a couple of weeks in advance. 10 minute walk from the Aviator hotel. Staff were so attentive and courteous. They kept an eye on the drink situation all the time and kept us topped up with both water and wine. We went for the first of the set menus and would... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for 13 years. We have eaten all over the world and sampled some amazing cuisine but this local, fantastically run restaurant continues to be our favourite. The excellent service (you are always treated like a VIP) and flavoursome, high quality and always piping hot dishes make this our favourite place to spend an evening.... More

We visited Malacca for a recent family birthday. We called ahead to check if it would be ok for our daughter who has a peanut allergy. The owner said he would make sure the chef would prepare her food separately. Good to his word, when we arrived, he identified himself and reassured us the chef was aware of my daughters... More

First the disclaimer: I'm not a great lover of Chinese food. Most of the dishes are Chinese so I went for a Thai curry for the main course. Having said that, I did enjoy all the food and had a lovely evening. The staff are very good and we received a warm welcome and friendly service. My partner does like... More

Visited the night of Chinese New Year. On this particular evening only a set menu was offered which, as it turned out, was a well proportioned sampling of many of the regular offerings. The duck starter was excellent. The main course dishes covered the spectrum of meats and vegetables; fresh and well prepared. If the quality of the fixed menu... More
