Was at Chez Papa a week ago with a group of friends for dinner. There were about 15 of us and each one of us enjoyed an array of selection. Right up from the starters, main dish to the dessert... We tried almost everything and honestly couldn't really pin point any flaw. Besides, the price is also pretty reasonable. Shereen, the owner was constantly very busy in the kitchen cooking but she always made sure to come out in between to check on her customers. The restaurant set up is very cosy and the decor of the restaurant is really unique. Must say Shereen and her husband Dominique had painstaking taken every effort to decorate the place. Well, if you happen to be in JB Town and craving for some lovely authentic French Food, Chez Papa is the place to visit. This is definitely an excellent place for excellent dining!

From the outside the restaurant doesnt look much - in 2 adjoining shop houses just off Tebrau highway. Inside it is typical french style bar-brasserie - wooden tables and chairs, but more up market than many places in JB. The service was superb - attentive and knowledgeable, but not over intrusive. The menu is typically french - we shared Chez pap selectino for starter- the quiche was one of the best I have ever had and the salmon and cured duck breast were good too. We both had steak for main course- cooked as requested and v tastey. For dessert my husband had crepe suzette which was prepared at ourr table and was as good as any we have had in frnace.
All in all a wonderful meal and made a lovelly change to have such an excellent european style meal in pleasant surroundings.

We had lamb tenderloin, waygu beef, escagots, mushroom soup. I like the way they serve warm slices of french loaf upon order. it would be nice if its served with olive oil instead of salty butter. very salty (please take note). Food quality is good but subjective to individual . 10% discount for Bliss Boutique occupants ..
