They served burgers only. Vegetarian burger is available too. Food is average but affordable and fast food serving. Non-halal. Accept cash & cc. Reservation is needed if u plan to go during lunch time. Walk-in is welcomed but have to wait 30min top, which is fine for me as we visited Nyonya house across the street to fill the time.... More

We visited the Baboon House on Monday as most restaurants were closed. We were a bit apprehensive as we were not fans of burgers. However when we arrived, we were fascinated by the traditional and natural settings. It was very relaxing. The staff were very friendly. We ordered a beef burger, a chicken burger, a pork burger and a salad.... More

Finding the place could be some work as it's hidden under it's own theme (I guess that's how they want to be). They are at Heeren Street, right next to Courtyard @ Heeren. It's an absolute surprise once you find it and get inside. It's mesmerizing and beautiful. We got a perfect spot, under the open roof. It was so... More

A historical house converted into uniquely decorated restaurant with plants and art elements.  I enjoyed a special beef burger with lemongrass homemade drink in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. A little hard to find as Google has positioned incorrectly. Look at the homepage for the right address.

We sauntered in to the Baboon House, all 8 hungry travelers, well past 2 pm on a Saturday afternoon. We stood outside the door of what seemed liked someone's house and rang the bell several times before it was answered. We were finally greeted by a young lad who said we would have to wait in the outer chamber of... More

Love the decoration and nice atmosphere, the pork burger is really yummy. Though not much of the choices, mostly burger selection. If you only go for burgers, then try this baboon house near jonker walk.

The shop front can be hard to find, as the signboard is carved on wood with plenty of greenery around it. We had to backtrack to find it eventually. Once inside, the place has a unique ambience full of old world charm. Food-wise, the burgers and drinks were delicious, and it's definitely a good place to chill out to escape... More
