Had the burger and the orange beer for lunch. Very good. The orange beer is delicious. Burger was really good too, although if you're an adult male you are going to be hungry. Inside the staff and atmosphere is really relaxed. Loved it. If you're in the mood for a good burger and a nice place to have lunch, definitely... More

Quaint Cafe, impressive wall decors, arty and laid back atmosphere. Time freezes there, it will lure you back in time to its old heritage aura while enjoying every bite of their signature baboon beef burger. If you want to take a break from the busy jonker walk, this is the place to be. Have a quiet moment while you work... More

perhaps it was near closing. the burger was overcooked and very peppery that masked the taste of the meat. felt i was just eating pepper. the saving grace was the homemade ginger beer that was refreshing. i might try again at another point in time. might just have been 'bad luck' during that visit. ambiance was relaxing though.

Went for a try yesterday after reading the great reviews in tripadvisor. We ordered aloha beef burger and the spicy lamb burger. The taste was good, we prefered the lamb burger. Meat was tender and juicy, however the burgers did not gave us the 'wow' effect. The side dishes were tasty, we hope they could have gave us a little... More

Our 1st meal in Malacca upon arriving. Indeed Baboon House has a unique setup and ambience. We enjoyed fresh and good burgers and sandwiches. The restaurant is house in a old and run-down terrace house, and that is what makes it so special. Nice murals and lots of greeneries. Very relaxing ambience. If you are looking for western meals, try... More

Great food nice ambience. No photos allowed in the restaurant as it is an art gallery. Only pictures of my food is not copyrighted. Not enough manpower on weekends. Missing some drink orders. Amount of wedges can be more consistent on the side. The rest is all good.

One of the best burgers I've had in Asia, the house itself is beautiful and the prices are reasonable. I would love to go back again!

Totally was not expecting these to be THIS good. Truly well-earned name as the best burgers in the region. Had the aloha burger + the green salad, excellent and I would make a trip back just for this.
