Located in Jonker street it was a very pleasant place to have a refreshing drink after shopping for hours. We had a table just overlooking the street and it was fun sipping cold drinks and looking at the people.

This was a great restaurant. They had entertainment, it was down a bright alleyway with pretty lights and the selection and food was all of a high standard. It was not too expensive and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

This restaurant is in the central of Melaka, Jonker Walking Street. The food is good but not the best, the staff is very nice and friendly.

Tasteless nyonya Laksa, watered down beer, plain cooked rice instead of ketupat to go with satay.. purely for foreigners . My son didn't mind the taste of his steak which was well done despite ordering medium well

Looked great, - outside seating - nice. Band was starting up, - too loud. Local food a bit boring and bland. Drinks OK and OK priced

Good for big groups as the space is quite large. Typical local food and some western options are available. Food is average quality and service is ok.

Had a dinner here with 15 other people. Service worked well and also food was pretty OK. They were also open rather late opposite to many other restaurants in Melaka which close at 5 pm on weekdays.

I've travelled widely around Malaysia. This was the worst meal I have had. I ordered the chilli chicken local special. It was totally inedible -I never knew chicken could consist entirely of fat. I was almost sick!!! The sauce was thick and gooey. Absolutely horrible....More
