Went to "Chez Papa" for a third time, and wasn't disappointed again. Nice little cozy place with great staff and very good menu. The portions are quite big, taste is fantastic....it's like being in France away from France. My wife, kids and I had a fantastic dinner there as usual. They have a Mushroom soup that tasted like heaven, even... More

Surpised me was that my Dato client went with me and his families, he told me he has been travelling a... More

Such relaxed, friendly, unstuffy French restaurant - a real gem and a joy to find in Johor. I had the mixed platter starters (onion tart, smoked salmon) and a sublime main of lamb cutlets with mash. So full I could hardly fit in the chocolate souffle pudding, but somehow I managed.... Unpretentious but delicious. If I am in Johor again,... More

Everything about this place is divine. The food is sublime, wine list extensive and staff ultra friendly, chic and professional. Best western food I had in 3 months in SE Asia in a gorgeously cute setting. Note the aprons from different countries hanging up from the ceiling. A cute touch Owned by a French/Malaysian husband and wife team, fluent English... More

Great food in a very warm and welcoming environment. Staff were all very attentive without being overbearing. Small printed menu, but with plenty of specials. I would definitely recommend the Duck liver pate or quiche for starters. Everything is freshly cooked and the vegetables are aldenti, poultry and meats are cooked exactly as they should be - moist and full... More

The best western food that we've had in JB. Highlights were the rack of lamb and the fillet steak (both specials of the day) which were superb. For starters we had the salad of the day (excellent) and the snails, which were tasty but a little small. We shared a creme brulee for dessert, which was good although lacked topping...better...
