I keep going back for their signature asam pedas fish. The broth is full of flavor. Tried their kangkung belacan & cuttlefish belacan. Both dishes are spicy but each brings out different flavor. Highly recommended, worth every visit & price reasonable.

This place serves tasty and fresh seafood. A must try dish is the otak-otak and asam fish. The price is slightly expensive but the food is quite good.

Not recommended unless you are willing to pay 5 star prices for 2 star ambience, food and service . Sambal petai is not bad but super expensive . Dinner for 2 costs RM 79.

The most expensive restaurant in melaka. Better dont try even the food not bad. I suggest u to eat around melaka raya, such as: zongthai restaurant, station one cafe, hailam kopitiam n there's still a lot of good n cheap restaurant to grab. Remember...nvr try city famous.... the waitre or waitress come near with a knife on their hand...
