I don't really think this is the place which is considered the best restaurant in JB. It is highly overrated in my opinion. First, I could see oil stain on their knife. No mater how many knifes were changed by them, I still could see oil stain on them. Maybe, they should change the cloth using to clean those knifes.... More

Steak cooked to perfection and my fish dish was excellent. The owner and very friendly staff take the time to explain all the dishes and... More

If you travel a lot it's nice to be able to eat great food in a friendly restaurant and Chez Papa delivers each and every time. The staff are professional and passionate about ensuring that you have a great dining experience. Customer interaction and feedback are two areas in which Dominique, Shereen and Sani excel. I'm also passionate about cooking... More

Frequent visits meant able to taste new menus they served. Friendly servers and always make time for socializing. Chef is very good at suggesting, and very accommodating to cook the dish as you want. Once,... More

Then, I called again on 14Feb2014, another unfriendly female receptionist told me I did not reserve any table as I did not pay for deposit. I was very... More
