A huge number of cakes - surely one to suit everyone
A narrow Long building so a tight squeeze with heaps of patrons

There are too many cafe at George Town. My friend recommended this cafe and said the cake is a must try so we come here for the desserts. The price is definitely not very friendly but with its ambience and cafe interior, I still recommend at least a visit here. I personally quite like the place. We had passion fruit banana cake & carrot walnut loaf. Both also tasted quite nice, I had filtered coffee and it is super good to go with carrot walnut loaf.

We decided to go to the China House as over a year ago I used to go for lunch and cake while working here for a month.

We didn’t expect it to be as good as it was - we shared the Asian plate and it took me back to living in Sri Lanka 20 years ago with amazing sambol, eggplant, a curried chicken and also beef rendang with coconut rice.

We also had amazing cakes and home made salted caramel and palm sugar ice cream which were all recommended to us by the attentive and friendly waitress...

Busy yet great service and at the same time food I would go back for time and again.

Really I have no idea why so many mediocre places get higher rating than somewhere like the China House as this is somewhere you have to go to in George Town.

Located in the heart of the old city of Georgetown. Ideal stop for afternoon tea. The restaurant is converted from two back-to-back old warehouse that gives it a unique feel as if one is entering the inner sanctum of what it feels like to live in Penand during the colonial British rule. There must be a variety of more than 20 types of cakes and pastries to savour from. Drinks are creative but one item missing 'Gingerale."
