This is one of the pioneer in crepes in Brunei. There are many varieties to choose from. If you are not interested in crepes you may also order lunch or dinner.

My brother decided to treat the family for a dinner out and chose Big Papa's. There were several varieties of chicken rice on the menu. Ordered roasted chicken rice and it tasted sweet and the ABC was more ice than condiments. It certainly wasn't cheap by Brunei standards either.

Reasonably priced and the quality of food is good. One of the favourite places for the whitecollar people in bandar town for lunch. They serve a mixture of chinese, malay and western dishes.

The setting is nice, glass wall. Cold environment. Ordered kolo mee wanton and begedil with Teh C. Learned that this is a franchised restaurant. Wide selection of local dishes from chicken rice to noodle soups and western breakfast. Recommended to come n dine here

Big Papa's is not a very clean restaurant. We always come here for the stuffed chicken with rice and the Bubur Ayam and down it with the 3 layer tea. Beautiful. The branch in Bandar has the best toilets in the whole country.

My first time in Brunei and I was happen to drop by and did not know it was so famous locally. I went to the kiulap branch one because it closed to my hotel. This restaurant looks nice and I went there twice. Can not really remember what I've ordered. Seafood fried noodle or curry rice, similar price at $4... More

Unacceptably poor delivery service: after agreeing to deliver and making me wait 90 minutes, they called from the restaurant to say that they couldn't deliver because there were "roadblocks" and "many policemen about" - and asked me to pick up the food. When I went out, there were no policemen or roadblocks - but it made me wonder - why... More

Their selection is pretty big, and it's a clean well serviced and popular restaurant with reasonably priced to budget priced Malay style food.

One of Brunei's most popular restaurants and one of our favorites. Always bustling, full of people. Big Papa's has 2 branches in Brunei. The Kiulap branch is big and spacious and has a play area which our kids love. Big Papa's serves local and western cuisines fast-food style (reminds us of some international fast food chains overseas). Service is good,... More
