The food is good. No doubt. Authencity still not lost. Ambience also very good showing culture of pernakan. But the service could have been better. The attitude of service should be good in order to win the hearts of customers.

Had a wonderful visit to the peranakan house. Great house, amazing heritag!!! If u do go to melaka, you gotta go on the tour that this place provide! Absalutely fascinated by the styles of living, the history and culture behind those closed doors! I absalutely loved it! Didn't try the food in there though, lolz, didn't seems too inviting.

This is a beautiful old house and the guides are excellent to make the history of the house come alive. The furniture and objects give a sense of the past.

We had only 3 dishes for late brunch and didn't finish the 3 dishes even though we were hungry. After tasting peranakan food at Anak Nyonya (see my other review), we... More

We chanced upon this restaurant while searching for peranakan food in the vicinity of Jonker street, and having given up on Nancy's Kitchen as the queue was too long. Peranakan House boasted a large waiting area with beautiful peranakan furniture. We were told to sit outside and wait. It turns out that while the dining area is large enough to... More

We arrived at the restaurant at 3pm and was told by the lady sitting by the counter that they are closed. Do note that most restaurants at Jonker Street closes around 2.30pm - 3pm. It was difficult for us to find a place which is actually open. However, the lady was nice enough to accommodate us and told us that... More
