It's been awhile since we last dined here

It's been awhile since we last dined here. This is one of my favourite dining place with good service and comfy ambience. Most of the time we ordered from the daily special menu, that's from the black board. However, this time round we ordered from the menu, the main course from the menu cannot be... read more

Whenever I am in JB a visit to Chez Papa is a must. The food is super delicious and most friendly service. Best steaks in town.

We, a family of 4, had high expectations when we decided to visit a presumably good restaurant. The staff was friendly. But how we were disappointed about the food. A greasy, oily serving of two beef steaks (lamb tenderloin) and rather tasteless pasta, the whole presentation looked uninviting. Also the vegetables were a big disappointment. The red house wine was... More

I have been visiting Chez Papa since 2001, when it was only known among a small circle of folks in Jb. Later, after I got married, the Wife and I came more frequently. The Wife is vegetarian. I remember still how Shereen would come to our table and discuss how she could make us a vege dish. But mostly, we... More

Yes its old and stayed the same all these years. Yes its located at a less than fancy location. Yes its 'gloomy' But are all these external aesthetics important? Its the food that matters mind you! We have been patrons of Shereen and Dominique for more than 10 years and have seen the evolution of the restaurant - bare and... More

The place is wonderful piece of France. The food is good but the price is above average so get ready to burn a small hole in your pocket. Nonetheless, love the atmosphere and nice collection of wines.

This restaurant is a very old restaurant situated near Plaza Pelangi off Tebrau Highway. After so many years the ambience of the place is still the same. The food is nothing to shout about. Serving is poor and pricey. We do not like the surrounding because it t is among some very dirty and messy old shops. The road there... More

Johor has such a wide and diverse arrangement of restaurants and eating places, how do you decide where to eat? Having international travelers and wanting that special place, where work and pleasure crosses over, unwinding in the relaxed wine bar environment, before tantalizing and titilating ones tastebuds on perhaps the best steak in town. Wine choices from around the workd... More
