Lonely planet recommended the place, and it was well deserved! The only thing I want to put a finger on is that you should wait clearing the table to all are finished eating. Brilliant burgers! Crispy fries! Fair prices! Beautiful place!

We were lead here by trip advisor and we're not disappointed. Homemade orange beer, lime-orange juice, meatball sandwiches and good coffee. Lovely service by friendly people who helped us find something unique. Don't miss this place. There's a reason it's ranked #1!

This place was on my must visit list when I went to Malaka. So hyped to Baboon after reading a review on a blog which contain massive amount of photos of the place. The place does look lovely. They don't allow us to take photo there which is kind of ironic considering I went there because of the photos from... More

When I first told my friends that I would like to try baboon house's burgers, my friends commented 'burgers in Melaka?' But this was definitely a good decision made... Based in recommendation and online reviews, we tried the beef burger to share as we had simply too much food for the day.. The burger is soft and fragrant, patty is... More

Its not air conditioned, yet, its cooling despite the super hot Malacca climate. I like the open air concept, its spacious and I love how the place is decorated- a mix of peranakan and western styles. The menu is special with some wide selections of fusion food.

I've never been a huge fan of Western food, but The Baboon House changed my perception of burgers, from just fast food to gourmet food. The patties of the teriyaki pork burger and oriental chicken burger were so fragrant and juicy. The vegetables inside the buns were fresh and crunchy. Even the buns were delishly fragrant, so good that you... More

We visited the Baboon House based on good reviews and were not disappointed. The burgers were tasty and the homemade ginger beer and orange beer were delicious! The atmosphere in the restaurant is lovely - we sat in one of the garden areas but the inside was lovely too. A little pricier than other places - but for £10 for... More

Nice coffee, nice cake and friendly staff. You can easily wind away a good few hours here whilst reading a book and relaxing. Well worth a visit.
