The History of the Malaysian Nyonya cuisine
The intermarriage between Chinese immigrants and local Malays in the 16th century resulted in the distinctive culture of Straits Chinese Peranakan. Community members of this cultural merge address themselves as Baba (for the gentlemen) or Nyonya (for the ladies) and their cuisine is known as the Nyonya cuisine.

Food was AMAZING! Hands down, Robbie and his team were outstanding and i couldn't thank you enough for your hospitality. Look forward for next time!

Robbie was a delight to communicate with and made an incredible feast for my daughter's first birthday.
The nasi lemak was so flavourful, the rendang was succulent and delicious, the CKT smelt amazing and packed a punch.
My friend's son told me he could eat the satay all day - his first time trying Malay food and he's a convert.
Thank you for making the day go so smoothly and feel so special. We had so many compliments for the food.-

We had Robbie and Christina cater on-site with char koay teow cooked to order for our function on Sunday. They were really lovely, very accommodating to everyone's requests, many of our guests were impressed with their set up and were interested to do the same for their next function!
All the best with your projects and I'll keep a look out for your posts to see what's happening next!

The food is absolutely delicious! I really love every dish that I have tried so far, particularly love the lemongrass and satay chicken. I can't wait to try more of their dishes. Everyone is also soooo😀 friendly and that just adds to the pleasure of enjoying their food. Strongly recommend them!-

We ordered from Christina the first time for my son's 2yo birthday last month. We had satay chicken skewers, curry puffs, hokkien noodles, curry chicken and beef rendang. My husband's family are Malaysian they really looked forward to the dishes and they did not disappoint at all! The curry puffs and the skewers were quickly finished. Everyone kept asking where we bought them from!

Thank you for an outstanding meal that was thoroughly enjoyed by our family tonight. Our dinner was obviously lovingly prepared and was thoughtfully presented. Hubby remarked that this was the tastiest and freshest Asian style food he had ever tried. Your food is wholesome, filling, full of flavour, and isn't oily like usual take away food is. We really look forward to ordering again with you next time

I have been watching the menu's umming and ahhhing each week as to whether to try it or not. Last week, the menu choices were all our favs: curry puffs, satay chicken and noodles! If that wasn't a sign - I don't know what is!. So last week, I decided to give myself the day off cooking and treat the family to a meal prepared by Christina. Everything was delicious, fresh and perfectly flavoured!
If you're like me and unsure, I suggest you give it a try. Generous portions too! Thank you �

I gave Christina's Gourmet Dinner a try when I heard good things about it from a friend. I've only ordered three times, and can already tell we'll be ordering often. Always happy with the food, nice and fresh. Beautiful presentation and good value for money too.

Great gourmet food delivered to you doorstep! And even though we are out of delivery zone, the team connected us to another family who's now sharing the delivery cost! Can't wait for next Thursday!

One day the spiral curry puffs picture popped up on my Facebook feed and as an avid Malaysian food lover I couldn't resist it. I ordered some to bring to a party and everyone loves them. I had 2 myself. Will try Christina's other specialties next time for sure. Her pricing is very reasonable too.

They cooked on the site for you!! Fantastic way to serve fresh and hot food for guests..
That's the main reason I have them on my kids' bday party.
So convenient when you dont have to prepare plates etc..They bring and prepare their own cooking stuffs including their table to cook and place to serve them.
Very easy to deal with..
All my guests are very happy to have you cooked for them in the party.
Thanks Christina's Gourmet!
Apologize and thanks again for coping the heat on the day.. hehe!
