I just dunno where to start with this. The environment or the food or the service. All of them had just minor small issues but nonetheless i was pretty bothered by it, because without them this would easily be one of my top 20 restaurants i visited in Malaysia! Lets start with the food. I loved the burgers. Although i... More

It's just a shame you can't take any photos! We felt it was a strange choice of cuisine to serve in such a beautiful traditional setting but either way the burgers were delicious. Lovely service as well. I agree with the other reviews - the only criticism I have is that we could have done with a few more potato... More

The atmosphere is what makes this place amazing! Art combined with flora galore is what you will find packed into this old home. The burgers are yummy,sure, but you will likely be just as, or more impressed with the ambiance. Come and see for yourself. (Heads up- No photos pls)

I've been here twice with friends. They offer a huge variety of burgers I believe that shows enough identity of Baboon House which doesn't need more to prove that they are indeed should be at the top list in TripAdvisor. A place you shouldn't miss. Cosy place to stop by if you have been walking through Jonker street since early... More

A must try when you are in Melaka! Good food, good ambience and great service! Ordered aloha burger and spicy lamb burger. The portion was ok but it would be nice if there were more side veges on the plate as well. Can't wait to go back again!

Had the Aloha Burger with a lamb patty and some of their homemade orange beer. The burger was really outstanding and a good value with the fries and potato salad for 18RM (~$6USD). The decor is just superb, but I don't like the fact that you can't take photos inside. A super place to just hang out and relax, though... More

original and charming café - quiet, and great food. Malaka can be busy - so this is a priceless gem.

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
