“Jewel Find in Malacca”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Our 1st meal in Malacca upon arriving. Indeed Baboon House has a unique setup and ambience. We enjoyed fresh and good burgers and sandwiches.

The restaurant is house in a old and run-down terrace house, and that is what makes it so special. Nice murals and lots of greeneries. Very relaxing ambience.

If you are looking for western meals, try this restaurant, you will love it! It is on the parallel road to Jonker Street, the restaurant is next to Courtyard @ Heeren Boutique Hotel.

Unfortunately, photography is not allowed. It is run by French , and assisted by the locals, very efficient and nice service too.

“Best in Melaka”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Great food nice ambience. No photos allowed in the restaurant as it is an art gallery. Only pictures of my food is not copyrighted. Not enough manpower on weekends. Missing some drink orders. Amount of wedges can be more consistent on the side. The rest is all good.

“Best burgers in Asia, period.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

Totally was not expecting these to be THIS good. Truly well-earned name as the best burgers in the region. Had the aloha burger + the green salad, excellent and I would make a trip back just for this.
