The restaurant have cozy & eye catching decor. Wait staff was pleasant despite not understanding Nonya food in detail...Selection of Nonya food offered is great.. Ayam Pongteh, Ayam Buah Kluak etc..Tried Buah Kluak Fried rice..It was good.. The classic desert like cendol is also served which was nice too...Recommend for an Authentic taste of Nonya food. Prices are reasonable..

The food here is very mediocre only. The supposed to be spicy food is not spicy at all, most of the other dishes are more or less tasteless. Not worth coming...

A new nyonya cuisine restaurant pop up in the new Glo Damansara, or might have been there but just pop up on my radar. The cuisine is Nyonya but with a modern twist. The decor and style is fairly modern, but still offer a cozy environment that doesn't make the place feel very "chain-restaurant" like. The food itself is fairly... More

Prefer the new location with ample parking. Classy deco with nice ambience. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Love the sambal petai prawn, assam fish, pucuk paku. next trip must try the cincaluk sotong, stuffed sambal fish ...etc. Enjoyed a wonderful lunch with friends no interruption from staffs. Highly recommend and will come back for more delicious nyonya food.

A beautiful restaurant with classy decor. The waitstaff is friendly and very accommodating. The food stays true to its Nyonya roots, I studied for 3 years in Malacca and this experience made me miss my time there! My ultimate favorite out of all the dishes I've tried would be the Sweet Potato Leaves cooked with Sambal Keluak (I think!) I'm... More

Friends recommended this restaurant and we're glad we came. Excellent authentic Nonya food, great ambience and friendly and professional service from Stephanie and team. A nice evening out. In the crowded foodie marketplace that is KL, this place is outstanding.

The restaurant ambience is nice and the staff is friendly but the shopping mall is not fully opened. The Chap Chye & the Nonya Chicken is quite nice so I will recommend it to give it a try if you drop by this restaurant.

Food is excellent. Authentic Nyonya food with very reasonable pricing. Great decor to the place that makes us want to return (family). My kids are picky eaters. However, they love the food there and will definitely return.

Kuala Lumpur is a spice eater’s delight. The Tranquerah is a quiet place at dinner. People dig in to their food. The bare tables have paper place mats, spoons and forks and an oil lamp that smokelessly dispatches bugs and manages not to get in the way of flavour. The dining room is orange and yellow with nice display of... More
