Four years ago when I first visited, the rice ball and the chicken was good. Not great, just good. Now, I don't know how to describe it. Chicken being tasteless and dry, rice ball... just awful. Total disappointment and never coming back.

My wife and I went there to check out on this restaurant. On arrival, the restaurant was crowded with people from the town.

The taste is average but the price is reasonable. Half chicken + 40 rice balls and drinks costs about rm 27.

Huang Chang Chicken Rice Ball is the cheapest in Melaka town. The food is serving fast and the system used is efficient. The chili sauce is nice and spicy. Must try the cendol too 👍🏻

My son happens to be studying in Malacca and brought us to this shop which he says is where the locals go for Chicken Rice Ball. I asked him if this is better than the ones operating at Jonker Street and he said, this is the real thing. My rating for this outlet would be as follows :- Meal: Ordered... More

Huang Chang Chicken Rice Ball is one of our favorite eateries whenever we visit Melaka. We especially love the chili sauce which blends so well with the chicken and rice balls. Do come early (before noon) to avoid the crowd as things could get chaotic with huge crowd lining up for food/table. You need to order at the counter (self... More
