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.

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.

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
