If you like something a little different, the chicken rice here has chicken served with rice balls. I liked it! At times, there is a long queue - chicken in soy sauce is tender and the chilli goes well with it. Worth a visit!

We were lucky to get a table before the restaurant was closed for the day (in the evening)! The staff were very friendly. The chicken meat was tender and the rice balls were fragrant. The serving was ample for 2 persons and the price was...More

Had a great meal of the round kind. This is about the original chicken rice in a ball form. The chicken is done well with the soya sauce. Pity we were a little late and there wasn't anymore assam fish, gizzards etc ...

Delicious and authentic food. Always crowded. The service is fast and relatively nice. Located very strategicly at jonker street, close to the bridge (the river and hardrock cafe). Just try. You can not go wrong.

GREAT CHEAP FOOD. Everypne should try it at least once. have been eating here for more than 15 years, and quality is still that good. Though they seldom give out chicken rice balls due to overwhelming demand. Chicken however, pales in comparison with CHONG WAH...More

Chicken rice can be found anywhere but not in a BALL way. 😂 It was my first time trying the Hainan chicken rice ball. I have to say it was really tasty and reasonably priced - the steamed white chicken was fresh and the rice...More

Probably the best in Malacca. Very tender chicken with generous portions. Price reasonable. Hygiene not the best but maybe that adds to the flavour!

1. No idea on on opening times but if it's meal time, just go. 2. Parking.Probably best to leave the car at your hotel - assuming in Merlaka Central - and walk 3. If you're on foot, no need to worry about road closure.

They don't served pork. And there is no halal logo. That's all I can said.
