The frontage was excellent n surely the display of their signature Kueh Kueh, bak Chang, bringing out now the lunar new... More

My family and I are big fans of Peranakan food, having experienced the wide range of Asian cuisine, from the Philippines to Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Throughout our expat travels, Peranakan food kept grabbing our attention and is now amongst our top cuisines, though we love the wide range of offerings of Asia and the world. We had... More

The portion for each dish is too small for 4 pax. They should have pre-alert us to order double. Also I don't think the food are fantastic. Not worth a try.

A very conducive environment with beautiful Peranakan decor. The food is great, serving real Peranakan dishes whose history dates back to old colonial times.

We were lucky enough to celebrate the wife's half-century here with close friends just recently. It was my first time at the restaurant and I had trepidations as the booking was made from overseas (we're not locals). But most of the online reviews were positive, so I dived in. Luckily, the experience lived up to expectations. The quality of the... More

Its not in the center of town, the decor is nothing that special but all this does not diminish the popularity of this restaurant. The food is good honest home cooking styled Peranakan food. The Ayam Buah Keluak is particularly good with the restaurant providing spoons to scoop out the goodness !

This was my 3rd visit there and somehow I didn't experience the 'wow' factor which I previously was used too. The saving grace about this restaurant is the friendly service. My friends and I ordered the Assam fish dish and we felt that somehow it didn't taste right. When we gave feedback, they were quick to offer a replacement dish.... More

Reasonably good Peranakan Food: Ayam Buah keluak was good but a little sweet, the buah keluak taste did not come through strongly. Also the contents in the nut was too finely minced. I would prefer it more coarsely chopped, Bakwan kepiting - not really outstanding, did not get the crab taste in the meat. But the soup was well done... More

This was a favourite for authentic Peranakan food. Somehow this recent visit was a bit of a disappointment. The set lunch menu is reasonably priced with all the usual favourites. The fish assam was good with very fresh fish and the right tanginess of assam. The chicken in the buah keluak dish was a little dry and the beef rendang... More

Description
We are a heritage restaurant with a cuisine that dates back four centuries. Our food is a marriage of two cultures, of well-to-do Chinese traders or merchants who settled around the coastal regions of Penang, Malacca and Singapore, and who were married to the local women. Their descendants, known as the Peranakans meaning "local born" were brought up to appreciate the fine things in life. The males were inducted into the family business and the females were taught homecrafts especially in cooking. Food has always played an important role in the households of rich the Peranakan families. The patriarch would entertain his business associates lavishly. In those days, it was common to bring honoured guests home and be pampered with good food cooked by the ladies of house, presided by the matriarch, often an awesome woman of many talents. At PeraMakan, we relive the bygone days through our food, cooked with love and passion. We cook for you as if we cook for the family and our food does not contain MSG or preservatives. What you get is clean, healthy, wholesome food cooked the way, a Peranakan matriarch would cook for her loved ones. Visit PeraMakan and enjoy Peranakan hospitality and warmth.
