Was lucky to pop by for lunch without any appointment made, and manage to get a table for 5 adults! Friendly boss, wonderful foods with good quality and quantity, especially the Asam-fish, not too spicy and sour; ngo-hiam delicious yum yum and chendol for dessert. reasonable price too.

Went for lunch (packed with people), waited about 20minutes for table. Menu is attractive with lots of choices. We had the 4 angle beans with sambal (just average taste but with fresh prawns), pai tee is flavourful, assam prawn and ayam pongteh taste.

Long queue, waited for almost an hour for a table and after all this ...food just average. This place is certainly overated. Not the kind of food experience you want after an hour wait. We ordered, the nonya fish curry, chicken debel, assam prawns, chap chai, belacan four angled beans, vegetable curry, fried eggs, pie tee cups and popia. The... More

When in Melaka city, you must try squeeze Nancy's Kitchen into your To-Eat-List! It's a quaint restaurant in Kota Laksamana offering amazing BabaNyonya/Peranakan food. You will not regret it, and if you are lucky, you might even see "Nancy of Nancy's Kitchen" herself sitting around the restaurant! Some food suggestions: Top Hats (pai tee), Bak Buah Keluak (pork rib with... More

I booked on Wednesday for Sunday lunch 1.30. They have taken down my name and phone number by repeating to me and make doubly sure . When reached there at 1.30 Sunday , was told not in their booking system and very unfriendly . Their food not the best in town ,but the attitude will chase customer away .

The only paranakan place tried in malacca. Thus can't really compare. Quite crowded. Better to make reservation online. Overall food is nice and reasonably pricing. Oneh oneh is good. Restroom is clean. But tiny flies around dining area.

Nice cosy restaurant serving Peranakan delights. Serving size is small and reasonably priced. Ordered popiah, laska mee, grilled fish, chicken curry and chendol. Delicious with good level of spiciness. Prompt service. Has free wifi and clean toilet. Restaurant also sells Peranakan cookies.

I normally do not wait in queue for having my meals but decided to give it a try since their cendol rated one of the best in Malacca. You need to write your name, phone num, no. of person is some sort of a log book. They will give you a ring once a table is ready for you to... More

Since shifting to a new location, Nancy has not maintained the same standards that have made it famous. The Laksa was disappointing, almost bland and a poor contrast to other places. I would recommend trying the laksa at Calanthe Art Cafe instead. The petai and prawn dish was also disappointing, small beans of petai and shrimps that weren't fresh. There... More

I had a really good lunch here. Peranakan-style chicken, popiah, and rice, with some fresh cendol for dessert. The main courses were all hot, flavourful, and delicious, while the cendol was icy and smooth just like it should be. Very much enjoyed the meal overall.
