Liked this place. Staff very friendly. Told us it is the oldest building in jonker street where they originally collected taxes from the traders. Dinner first night. Sea bass good (no bones) and nasi goreng kampung yum. Called in for cold drinks next day.

We had drinks here two nights in a row and a meal one night. Curry was good and and it was a nice quiet atmosphere away from the manic Jonker street markets.

Although recommended by our hotel with 15% discount we were not impressed by the food. See Casandra's review as well. Food over cooked. Slow to be brought to table. We had the Nyonya set meal for 4. At least the beer was cold.
