“Still the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2011

Been to many nice place to dine in jb, I found chez papa still the best in almost everything, if you really know how to enjoy it. The sirloin steak always maintain the best freshness and juicy, needless to mention the gorgeous Goose Foie GRAS , trust me, this is not the most expensive item among all western restaurant in john bahru, but it is the tastiest ever! Even thought I am not a heavy drinker, but I was also enlightened by it's variety from german's paulaner to the local tiger draft beer. Gosh, it was a fantastic choice! Lastly, the service is so so much better , and you can easily get a smiley face even from their cook. Nice one, for sure I will be back with my exclusive clients, friends and families!

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2010

Was looking forward to this restaurant based on the reviews. The ambiance was lovely but the food disappointing - just okay. Giannis is a better choice.

“Perfection, Great Food, Great Wine and Great Ambiance!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2010

Chez Papa, The Oasis and the Jewel in the crown of Johor’s Dinning options, serving traditional French cuisine, from the freshest succulent escargot, melt in the mouth Master Kobe Steaks, and when in season Air Flown fresh French Oysters, whether you are relaxing after a hard day in the office, or perhaps entertaining out of town dinner guests or having a quite family dinner or party and celebration, at Chez Papa you will find a warm and inviting ambiance like no other, a true taste of France with a Touch of Class, others may have tried to copy but there is only one CHEZ PAPA.
The Wine bar stocking one of the largest selections of Wines from around the world and international Beers along with a wide assortment of cocktails and aperitif available for your dining pleasure, creating the perfect place for a before diner drink, I seen many restaurants come and go in Johor Bahru and the quality and service at Chez Papa is by far the best.. Great Food, Great Wine and Great Company… Perfection!!, La Perfection, Kesempurnaan, 完善
