This is a traditional, unpretentious Peranakan restaurant where you can get food unavailable in other parts of Malaysia. It's low key, relaxed and serves largely to knowledgeable locals. Selection of local dishes all well received and our Malaysian hosts recommended well. Price for 4 was...More

Fantastic vintage decor and delicious peranakan dishes that would take you back to your childhood or the old days like a time machine. Recommended dishes are the nanas or pineapple curry dishes and the cendol dessert. Definitely a must-visit when you’re in the old town...More

Of the many places I’ve tried the pongteh in malacca, this one has the closest taste and smell to what my late granny makes. You have to make reservations and wait a little while, but it’s worth it.

The place is quite popular and we waited 15min on a weekday night to get a seat. Overall the food’s good quality, the ngo hiang’s very good, brinjal’s cooked perfectly and sayur lodeh’s excellent. I felt some of the seafood dishes were over priced.

The cincalok omelette was nice. The chendol was good. Fortunately, there is n more GST! Savings of 6%, we spent on the Otak.
