We visited based on this restaurant having #1 rating in Johor Bahru on Trip Advisor and boy did it live up to the hype! From the super friendly welcome, to a prompt drinks service, Chez Papa will not disappoint. We ate the sampler for entree - chicken pate, cabbage roll with beef, salad and other little French wonders. Main meal... More

I also got my gastronomic delight with the Pates au poisson... More

No, I don't fancy French food. My few experiences were so unmemorable i decided to just stick with siput sedut instead of escargot. Well, at least until a recent business trip to JB when two of my local friends dragged me to Chez Papa for dinner. We settled on escargots, foei gras and onion soup for appetizers. I'm seriously unsure... More

My friends recommended me this place and I really love the food here! Very good quality French food! It would have been a 5 stars if the neighborhood was safer (less messy) and slightly cheaper (it was too expensive). But, thank you for the great grain-fed steak!

Recently seven of us visited Chez Papa restaurant for a relaxing evening. Overall the night was good however in my opinion the food and drinks were a little over priced. The total bill came to RM1,000, which when compared to other quality Asian restaurants, this, in my opinion, was a tad too expensive for what you got and to warrant... More
