I don't really think this is the place which is considered the best restaurant in JB. It is highly overrated in my opinion.

First, I could see oil stain on their knife. No mater how many knifes were changed by them, I still could see oil stain on them. Maybe, they should change the cloth using to clean those knifes. Second, the waitress only pronounced the name of every today's special dishes to us. The problem is that we were able to clearly see those names from the board, while what we wanted was the description or explanation of those dishes. By the way, merely changing forks, spoons and plates did not grant one better services.

Last, regarding the taste, they served the worst pumpkin soup from my experiences. Papa's selection was just normal and the pasta was overwhelmed by unflavored creamy taste. Crepes with ice cream were below average. The only thing that could be conveniently edible was a dessert named 'Colonel', which was a lemon sorbet soaking in Vodka.

For the total damages of RM 100+ for two persons, only atmosphere was ok for that night. For your interest, Chez Papa is not a fine dining restauranyt.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Chez Papa. The food was amazing. We shared the selection platter of entrees. All delicious and more than enough for two. Our mains were as good. Steak cooked to perfection and my fish dish was excellent. The owner and very friendly staff take the time to explain all the dishes and answer any questions. A very relaxed and friendly atmosphere hits you the minute you walk through the door. A restaurant you want to return to again and again and try a different dish every time.

If you travel a lot it's nice to be able to eat great food in a friendly restaurant and Chez Papa delivers each and every time. The staff are professional and passionate about ensuring that you have a great dining experience. Customer interaction and feedback are two areas in which Dominique, Shereen and Sani excel. I'm also passionate about cooking and Chez Papa and my kitchen are the only places that make the grade for a well cooked steak!

Been going to Chez Papa since 2011. Always have fantastic food. Favorite is the escargot, but have been impressed with other starters on the menu. Frequent visits meant able to taste new menus they served. Friendly servers and always make time for socializing. Chef is very good at suggesting, and very accommodating to cook the dish as you want. Once, the steak was not cook to my liking and they replaced it and it was superb after.
