Restaurant is tucked in a peaceful corner and serves relatively good food. A good place to escape to it is away from all the crowded restaurants but serves good quality peranankan dishes.

Considering that the restaurant is in the Equatorial Hotel, expect premium on the food pricing. But the ambiance is great, and the taste is also good. Great staff attitude.

Lunch at the Seri Nyonya Restaurant was included in our half-day tour of Melaka and we were surprised to be taken to this rather plush restaurant in the Hotel Equatorial. Hoping for a light snack for lunch, our hearts sank when we read the set menu and realised before the mountain of food arrived that many of the dishes would... More

Presentations are nice. Their asam fish and petai prawn are tasty. Others are just so-so. I think u just need to order the right dishes in this restaurant because not everything is nice. But keep in mind some of their medium size dishes are quite big especially non-seafood dishes, so double check with them so u don't order too much.

Blessed with a complimentary set dinner and added 2 more dishes for kids to join us for dinner. Ayam Ponteh was awesome and their cendol tasted really rich. A must try and great alternative to the other crowded local nyonya restaurant.

If you are looking for traditional Nyonya food and have appetite for spice, this is the place. No fanciful menu but taste is 👍 . Of course you pay decent price for valuable authentic nyonya dishes. PS: request for their belaccan ~~ MUST TRY Picture is end result for family of 5 with kids age 5~7 year old
