i didn't eat here nor stay here, but my friends and i simply walked pass when the owner invited us in for a tour. the lodging area was so amazingly rustic! not for the comfort seeker, but for someone who wants to soak in the whole idea of an old peranakan home... the owner was very warm and welcoming. unfortunately,...

Originally intended to put up Guli Residence, but to no avail. Passed by the Teahouse and while telling my children that I originally going to book for this lodging place, the owner, Mr Lai, was at the doorstep and invited us in. We called for a tea drinking session, and Mr Lai has put in another 2 coffee on the... More

We weren't sure what to expect when we entered. We were the only customers and were shown to a table and asked to please wait. We didn't mind as it was cool and we weren't in any hurry, but after around ten minutes we were wondering what exactly we were waiting for. We were not given a menu or any... More

The front of the tea house was messy - with laptops books papers etc all over the front tables, plus a sleeping old man next to the table... The vending machine at the front was ugly and didn't match the tea house at all - we felt like we were walking into someone's house! They didn't sell any snacks to... More

We ate here once and took tea here twice. The food was simple Chinese food, a choice of 4 or 5 meals, all that we tried in our group were fresh and delicious. There are a range of teas available and the owner will serve you one or two types in a ceremony style, explaining the process and the tea.... More

Admittedly, we nipped into this tea shop just to use the loo, but ended up staying for three hours! We decided to partake in a tea ceremony and were superbly led by James, whose parents own the shop. It was a wonderful experience and James is a real asset to both his family and the tea house. He talked us... More

This places is a lesson in history and a lesson in the art of tea all in one place. Also a nice resting stop after a hot and sweaty tour in the district. Reasonably enjoyable, though not much else to offer.

This is a must if you are visiting Melaka. The tea ceremony is fascinating and informative, we learned lots not only about tea and the tradition that surround it but also about the area, history, restaurants e.t.c. Pak the proprietor is very friendly and knowledgeable with good English. After the tea ceremony which by the way was only about £5... More

the tea ceremony at the tea house takes at least one hour or more, but it is interesting to chat with the lady, who does the ceremony, to watch her making tea and ask everything you always wanted to know about tea, the way it is fermented and roasted and cultivated etc, interesting! besides she's a nice lady to talk...
