Ayam ponteh was salty, sweet and sour fish was uncooked inside and over fried on the outside. Kang kung was nice, aubergine with chilly was basic. The duck soup was interesting and perhaps the most interesting dish we had.

Found this restaurant by chance, as we were walking around to look for another Nyonya restaurant. It was one of the stalls that was recommended by our Malaysian tour bus guide when the tour bus drove past the food streets en route to the different hotels. My family and I were lucky, arriving at the restaurant just before the lunch... More

We came to this restaurant after looking for a nearby Nyonya food by using Waze. Not the best after tried many other Nyonya food restaurant before this. We ordered Fried Asam Fish, Mixed Vegetables & Otak-Otak. Fried Asam Fish sauce were sour, Mixed Vegetables gravy were watery. Otak-Otak tasted ok, not great. Service was quite fast, staff are friendly. Environment... More

average local restaurant. Good if you have a big group. Mutton dish was ok. It's quite clean and service was good. Food comes out quickly. It's quite convenient as it's in the way.

Went there with my family, comprising of the old and the young, upon the recommendation of a friend who never fails to visit Ole Sayang whenever she visits Melaka from Singapore. I must say it exceeded my expectations. Food is tasty & suit the taste buds of both the old and young.

We were a group of 10 and were shown fairly quickly to an empty table in spite of it being a very busy Sunday. The menu was comprehensive - too good to be true - I thought. On closer scrutiny of the menu, I found many dishes are not typically Peranakan, for example, the deep-fried squid, vegetables stir fried in... More

The first time we tried nyonya food almost 30 years ago was this restaurant. We loved it so much! This time we went back to check it out and found the food is still good. A little bit disappointment was the ice. The taste is still good but the amount of "cendol" and "kacang" in the bowl seems fewer than... More

The food at this restaurant was excellent! Everything we had tickled our palates (assam fish, chicken rendang, sambal shrimp, salted vegetables and duck soup, cincalok omelette and nonya chap chye). However, we felt the otak-otak was a disappointment as we felt it was bland-tasting and its texture was too soft. The highlight of our meal was the massive bowl of... More
