Terrible food. For those who dislike crowds and queuing, but yet want a taste of how chicken rice ball looks like but not taste like. Have eaten once in all my 20 years in Melaka, and never again, Avoid it at all costs.

Service was appalling! We were there today just 2 hours ago at about 7pm. The servers are disinterested to serve. The old lady who served us gave us black face through out, and seemed very impatient for us to make a decision on our choice....More

We have chicken rice ball on our first day in melaka. We have kampung chicken. Not really that nice. Chicken not so tender. Maybe we make the wrong choice. But the otak is nice. An experience to eat the rice ball.
