A place that you should not miss. Serve great pork burgers, beautiful music & ambience and home made ginger beer.

The burger I tried was great (Aloha burger), and would actually consider making a trip from Singapore to Melaka for a holiday to get more of the same. The ginger beer is an acquired taste. The place is a find, and the decor is really cool! An arty hangout! Remember to go early though, as the place closes by late... More

I don't quite understand the rule of no photos inside the restaurant, but the food was good, the ambience was good, and the overall experience was great! We arrived early at 11am plus on a Monday and no crowds. We didn't plan to eat there as it was western, we wanted to try local stuffs, but it was good that... More

Very cliche, I know, but there's no other word for it! I came in on a Monday, lunch-time and there was no crowd. I walked right in even though there is a sign saying to wait for staff to seat you. No point since there are hardly any customers. I was greeted by a nice guy covered in cool tattoos... More

After my last visit to Baboon house last year, this time it was my first stop just right after I checked into my hotel. And this place still has the charm for great burgers! This time they even had other varieties as a weekend special, an interesting concept indeed. They suggested us a homemade orange beer, which I believe it's... More

We were there after 2 pm but apparently this restaurant is so popular and of course we ended up waiting. The wait was worth it because the restaurant ambience is amazing and the food is pretty decent though the menu offer limited choices. Overall , the experience was pleasant at the restaurant and will definitely check out the place again... More

This is a place in Malacca to get the protein fix by enjoying a great hand-made burger, an iced coffee or a ginger beer. Really good value for money for the food, and the artwork adorning the walls pleases the soul. Beautiful compound! The toilet can really be improved though.

We only stopped for coffee. We went to the middle courtyard, where there were plants and ferns. It was like having coffee in the jungle. But what impressed us was the love displayed by the family towards to each other (and great service to us). We watched Grandma peeling oranges for the juicer, and looking after 2 stray baby kittens,... More
