I am not sure why people said its expensive and service is bad. we had beef randang and udang petai(small size), with rice and lime juice for two. they taste good and the bill is only 30 myr, or 10USD. I can't complain for having some yasty food at such a lovely chinese upper class mansion.

In terms of service, i think they are allright for chinese place. oh come on, if you want how-are-you-all-the-time , better to visit those tourism-oriented felipino serving restaurant. you will hear sir sir sir or madam madam madam if you like. They are well trained for the westernized dining experience. but chinese local restaurant service is nothing but like that.

my tips is order the food that the price is shown in menu. dont conern too much on waiter's face but look at how lovely of the building and enjoy your food.

It is reasonably price and the foods are good for local,the kangkong belachan with coal burnt smell which made it one of the best kangkong belachan I've ever tried !

The food is beautiful here though service is tardy, need to chase the waiters a bit! What makes it such an exotic dining experience is that you eat authentic Nonya cuisine in a beautiful old Peranakan mansion..

The atmosphere and restaurant is very beautiful but the food is ok only. The portion is very small and service not brilliant. Pricy and not much of choice of selection. Would not go again.

Worst food experience in Asia. They have totaly overpriced food, plus if you are tourist they will charge you even more(ya they don't care what is the price in menu). In addition, when you are trying to solve the situation and discuss your opinion they will pretend they don't understand. Also, the people don't care about customer and you will probably will be very disappointed with services offered. The food is not great either.
