“Cool area”
Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

I pay a visit to the baboon house purposely due to the high ranking and it doesn't let me down but amazed me ! This place is the combination of arts , burgers and histories . If you like one of them items I mentioned , u shouldn't miss this place! Seriously I admire this place much and I'll definitely visit back! The burgers are tasty and the price for a burger with some small fried potatoes are between RM13-15 . The environment was great but just a little bit warm and there's too many mosquitoes as my family and I sat near the plants but overall it was awesome and you guys shouldn't miss it !

“Great place and great burger”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

For starter, the place is great with lots of antiques and decorations. As you walk into the restaurant, you would see plants and vines dangling off at the centre of the restaurant. If you are thinking of a meal with your special one do consider this place. The aloha cheese burger is fantastic and coffee served there is not bad. The food served is a little slow but worth the wait.

“Great Burgers Slow Service”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Definitely the place to go for a burger, sitting in an old historic courtyard, but regrettably service was slow. A nice touch was the fish bowl with fish in as a centre piece. The vines along the building create a great atmosphere. They are only open for lunch too, not dinner.

“Great vibe, great food”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Definitely not your average cafe. It has a unique and funky vibe to say the least. The food was excellent, which is why we went twice in two days.

“Best Burger Ever!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

The place is calm, relaxing and serene. The owners are lovely and the art is breathtaking.

The Aloha Burger is by far the best burger I've ever had. Full stop.
