We came for food Saturday night and were very happy with the service - and the food was great. We had the local fare as always, and loved every dish. However, when we came back to listen to their live music later, staff was overstretched. It took us a good 10-15 minutes to order our beer, although (in addition to... More

This venue was sold to us by a couple we met in our travels. Thanks for the recommendation Helen and Rob. It did not have live music, as anticipated, although it does on certain nights (when I suspect eating inside may be quite noisy). But the food was really good. I had a delicious nasi impian, which was rice cooked... More

Went to have a look at the street market last night and decided to eat here. We had quite a big lunch so only wanted one course each. She had TomYam soup which was served in a coconut complete with its husk. She said it was the best she has ever had and she nearly always has Tom Yam if... More

Stopped off here for a spot of lunch. Food was decent and the staff pretty efficient. I had chicken satay and whilst not the best I've had (to be honest I wasn't expecting it to be) it was very tasty. Think this would be a fun place for a drink in the evenings or to go with friends.

Now this is definitely a characterful and memorable place to have a meal at any time of day. The decor is wonderful, with colourful and evocative pictures and furnishings throughout and the place always seems to be very busy, which enables a lively and energetic vibe at all times. The menu is wide and one can enjoy a meal from... More

Had coffee in this lovely little restaurant. Good choice of coffees. Liked the atmosphere so much that we took friends for dinner in the evening. Good home-cooked food

Let's be frank, Malaysia is definitely not the best place to have an al fresco style of anything (dining, bar and what not) But that being said, aside from the sweat, the atmosphere was awesome, the crowd + plus those patroning jonker street was fantastic. And a little sweat ain't gonna do much harm when they start rolling out score... More

Well in my note about Malacca I mention this cafe. I must say they were welcoming, friendly and the cafe was a joy. It maybe on Jonker Street though they are there to provide a service willingly. We only wanted a snack and we ordered favoured water, not for me, a glass of house red and a chicken curry dish.... More

This time we were determined to stop here. We were on a cruise and only had a short time but this was a must. This time we had something to eat, even though we had had lunch on board. It was quiet when we arrived around 2.30 but soon got busier. The food was tasty and the Long Island as... More
