Do not get the hype but pretty satisfied.

Have to wait for someone to buzz us in but it is good because it is unique. One of the guy recommend this place. The food is okay taste better burger somewhere else not in Melaka of course. Maybe this place can be the best burger in town. The staffs were amazing and the restaurant as well. You... read more

Amazing food & drink. I had the Aloha cheese burger and a matcha latte. Best burger I have ever had; juicy and well seasoned. Tried the honey wine too - amazing! They do ask you to keep your voices low but this ensures that everyone can benefit from the chilled out ambiance. Love it here!!!

The food was nice. The staff were friendly. It's not cheap. The decor is interesting. Don't bother following the Google maps link. It's at the other end of that road not where you are directed to. I find their insistence on no photos ostentatious in the extreme and utterly unnecessary. So I took a few.

If I was to describe Baboon House in one word it'd be 'atmospheric'. I actually discovered Baboon House by accident - it was closed at the time, but the the facade of the premise was mysterious and the visually arresting black window shutters with the superbly executed sketch of a baboon face incited me to return the following day to...

Great place to meet up with friends and the well prepared food helps a lot. It is situated smack in the tourist belt of Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock. Looking for the restaurant is equally interesting as you have the opportunity to see all the heritage houses that sandwiched Baboon House.

Overall, average experience. But given the price of the burgers, in addition to unfriendly staffs and long waiting, I would not go again.

I must say the burgers here are among the best ones that I've ever had. What better place to eat than in an old shop house with cool interior decorations. My advice is that if you want to eat here but want to avoid disappointment or a long wait you better come early as the sitting is limited. They serve... More

We came in a group of 10 and had to be split up to 2 tables as their tables are not big enough to accommodate all 10 of us. They have some rules which are (a) patrons are forbidden to take pictures. Odd, don't think you? If the management is of the view that it would stand out because of... More
